Sidewinders are great - they have that drifting turn, instead of burning and cut rolling. Not sure why DM felt the need to fill that gap though...

Eagle needed a new roller disc? There was some talk that he and Simon had to give up the cross-over molds from Innova if I recall correctly.

My experience with SWs are that they even more inconsistent than other molds. There was a really dependable run many years ago of swirly light purple ones but once all 3 of mine were lost I switched to a beat champ Beast.

I don't think they HAD to give up the Innova discs; they're just encouraged to throw Discmania if they can. Having said that, i think you've had a good thought that this might have been created for Eagle and Simon to use as a roller disc.

Def. a convex wing shape a la TD and FD. The first few throws it felt like a longer FD (which I had with me to compare). I know same has been said about the CD2 but to me that is a different disc altogether, more driver-y than the FD and now the TDX. I gotta say that I was pretty tired and did not get a full power pull on any of the shots to really know the stability. More testing will ensue.

D line fds were absolute trash. Even for a chucker like myself. No way either of them are taming one for rollers.
