19.99 for a fundraiser disc isn't a mark up. They just misled us a little by promising 2nd run like disc and delivering a soft version of star plastic.

The disc might still be absolutely amazing but it won't replace a 2nd run FD until its released in C-Line or at least Firm S-Line like the doombirds were. I would prefer Jolly Launcher though. If the disc is good and successful in the production runs I'm sure we'll see it eventually.

Until then I'll let people go crazy and pay aftermarket prices for this run and just keep stockpiling 2nd run FDs.

DM really seems to be off the mark lately. Too bad. I wasn't really looking forward to this release to begin with, but soft Star plastic??! C'mon guys... these should've AT LEAST been JL C-Lines.

I'll stick with my 2nd runs.

I gave up fairly quick on shimmer plastic after the first batches were gross colors like OG ti was.

If it’s gross colors but felt really nice maybe bag it at certain times of the year but any of the shimmer I felt up was stiff and not a lot of grip. Hope it’s different now?

Not different that I'm aware of. I also don't like Shimmer Star (the Mystere in it was 'not good' while the regular Star Mystere has potential), and avoid it.

Chill out, it's just a fundraiser disc. It will come out in better plastics eventually.

My retooled fd2s came in today, I got a blue/grey and a deep blue, the blue/grey is embossed while the deep blue is not. The deep blue is full of sparkles and is almost a champystar while the blue/grey is just solid colored.

They feel very similar to teebirds, but hopefully they have a different flight so it's not just another clone-like fairway. Unfortunately the weather in CLT is crappy right now so I wont get a chance to throw for a little bit.
