Gotta Go Gotta Throw had some x-out D-FDs back before Xmas. Haven't checked in awhile to see if they're still available.

a. I'd like a D line FD, so it could beat in. C-FDs take forever.

b. If 2 means, "what we really intended," as with the TD, I'd hope for something less beefy than a C-FD, that really had a glide factor of 6.

This is a new release that i'll definitely be trying out. Discmania has some really solid molds in their lineup.

I would do bad things to people to get my hands on either D FD's or P FD's if those existed. S lines take a lot of abuse before they think about being understable

P-FDs would be a dream come true.

FD-2.. who knows. Could be new parts, could be a frakenmold.

Could be an FD top on a Teebird wing, you know, while we're speculatin'..

I have two hopes for this disc:

1) It is different enough from a C-FD to really be a new mold.
2) The inevitable CFR pre-release and the production run fly the same.

It's hard to tell what speed it is from the picture, but I'll venture to guess that it's faster than the speed 7 FD, in keeping with the "2" theme. It just seems that they would be encroaching on old CD territory with that.
I will definitely be paying attention to this.

That seems like it would make sense, maybe it'll fly similar to a beat in PD. God I'd love that...all that wonderfullness without the work.

I bet it'll be like a whippet x, maybe a little faster.
