good to know. I haven't thrown one yet, just seemed like that was the natural fit

Chris, from discm sent me two CD2's in swirl. A suggestion of his after talking about what I was trying to find for a competitive slot in my bag.

Great disc but they just didn't make my line up. They were too close to my saints (regular). I suspect this will be the fastest selling disc from their lineup for newbs.

But I have no idea on what to relate the cd2 in the innova line up. Sometimes, I think that we want to itemize, put things in a category to simply are thinking.

So, even though your looking for direct comparisons between innova, and discm actually another manufacture may have a more similar slot to actually place it in.

This sounds interesting. I'm LOVING my S-line DDx, so I'll have to give the CD2 a go.

It is not more overstable than a Big Bead Aviar, which the P2 is based on, just without the bead.
Very true. I should've made that distinction.

Wow. Thanks for all the info so far guys.

My current bag (some are great discs for me, others not so much due to being way too overstable):

  • Drivers
  • 175g Champ Boss (HA, I know, I know. I don't have the arm, but I never drive with it. It's my get out of the brush/woods thumber disc and I'm DAMN good with it, so it stays)
  • 175g Champ Firebird (way too overstable for most drives. Only gets thrown on severe doglegs.
  • 167g Z Predator (old plastic) - Fairly overstable, and not as much distance as my Wraith).
  • 170g Z Nuke (usually too overstable backhand/not much distance, but I get a nice forehand with it)
  • 170g Z Nuke SS (I get decent distance, but still a little more overstable than I'd like)
  • 167 Star Wraith (my go-to driver)
  • 159(?)g Jade (this disc gets ridiculously flippy if I try to throw it hard, but my oh my does it glide when I throw it nice and easy)
  • 170g Z Thrasher (a little flippy, but I use it for wide-open long gliding drives, and anhyzer backhands)
  • 175g Champ Teebird (LOVE this disc. I'm most accurate when driving with this disc, both RHBH and RHFH. And it almost goes as far as my Wraith/Thrasher.)


    Mids
  • 175 Buzzz (my all-around approach)
  • 175g Z Buzzz OS (hasn't earned a full-time spot yet...)
  • 175g Z Buzzz SS (hasn't earned a full-time spot yet...)
  • 175g Truth (LOVE this disc, but it hasn't earned a full time spot yet...)
  • 179(?)g Champ Roc 3 (my go-to approach disc when I don't have to navigate an obstacle. LOVE this thing. Super straight, not much fade)
  • 179(?)g DX Roc (hasn't earned a full-time spot yet...)
  • 175g Z Drone(when I need lots of stability)

    Putters
  • 175g MVP Anode soft Proton - my main putter. LOVE the understableness(?). Goes right where I throw it
  • 175g Star Aviar (for longer putts I like this one for some reason. More glide maybe?)
  • 175g McPro Aviar (hate it. too hard.)
  • 175g Star Aviar driver (not even sure why I carry this...)

i have a couple of questions about your current bag. 1) if you had to only take 10 out of your 20 current discs, which would they be? I'd maybe start there to find your main bag, and then fill in your empty spots. 2) are you wanting to replace the Discraft discs in your bag? I wasn't really sure what the OP was meant for, although i'm thinking that's what you want. My question would be if you have a lot of these that you aren't sure would already earn a spot in your bag or they are too OS, what is your reasoning behind replacing those if they don't currently work for you? not in anyway trying to be mean or have that come off as looking down on your choices, just trying to figure out how we can help you better

My top 10:
Drivers - Wraith, Nuke SS, Thrasher, Teebird, Jade
Mids - Buzzz, Roc3, Drone
Putters - Aviar, Anode

This is basically all the discs that I throw regularly, and feel most comfortable with.

My original post was really just asking if there were direct equivalent discs between the two brands. Basically, are the Discmania discs just rebranded Innova molds...I see now that's not the case and I figured as much, but had no idea really.

And for someone who doesn't have a super strong arm (but not a beginner by any means), what would be some good discs to try out from Discmania?

1)Would the CD (Control driver) be a good fit for me? And do anything for me that my current lineup of drivers couldn't do for me? Or is the CD basically going to be like my trusty Teebird? (accurate, easy to control, but not as long as a distance driver) Any other easy distance drivers for folks without a rocket arm? (I assume I shouldn't be throwing the PD, PDX, etc. right?)

2)Is there a nice discmania mid that is somewhat between a Buzzz and a Roc/Roc3?

from what you've written, the CD would prob fit in b/tw your thrasher and Teebird. it should act like a longer Teebird, but if you throw that almost as far as the wraith, it might not do much for you currently. is there a certain shot you feel like you're missing with this bag that you're worried about not having? for mids, i have an MD that is supposed to be straight, and it is, but has a small fade to it that might fit in between. i also have an MD1 that holds a solid line and has a small amount of fade. maybe try one of those? i have a Buzzz and an Roc3 and i use a King Cobra/MD1 in between

Thanks for all of this info. It's nice to know how some of these may fit in between some discs I already have.

I don't really feel like I'm missing too much in terms of "shots" I guess. I just feel like my lack of distance is holding me back a lot. I'm working on my form, and I know I'll get there eventually. But if I could just magically find a disc that goes super long and super straight with my medium/slower arm speed, I'd be a happy camper
