I throw a lot of FD's and right now I would say the most stable to slightly OS ones I've recently thrown are max weight Lusters and VERY SURPRISINGLY a lightweight, pop-top C-line that was said to have come right in between the 2nd and 3rd runs. It is the same stiff plastic as the 2nd runs, with bubbles in the rim, but with some serious dome. It flies with more turn and less fade than the storied 2nd runs, but definitely finishes a bit harder than the 5th-6th runs. The fact that it's 160g makes it a lot of fun to throw too. Looks like the DM store is out of stock on those, but Infinite Discs has some... pink with a gold stamp is a dead giveaway for those run of discs.

Outside of those I mentioned, FD's all seem to be flying pretty much the same right now.

For me the max weight, stiff swirl S FDs have been nice and stable. I love them.

The TDx is going to be a great disc. We cannot disclose exactly what it will do, but we know there will be a mass of speculation coming anyway. We are all going to have one in our bags for sure!

This disc will definitely have some turn, as it is in the TD family. More information will be released in the coming months and all of the questions will be put to rest

The PDx is under contract with the DGWT as a strictly fundraiser-only disc. This agreement has not changed and will be released as a stock option after that point. We wanted to have a very special disc that represented the tour well and also something that players could look forward to. Discmania does not have any discs other than this one that are exclusive for one purpose. Though we know people are chomping at the bit to get their hands on the stock release, it will be just a little while longer before that occurs.

It’s only a matter of time! We have some other jobs to accomplish first and then can pursue other things like a D-Line MD3. Great question!

No one needs to die for sure! We have a new putter on the horizon and it is not a P-Line P3 but should be something that you are going to be thrilled about!

I dont think you could do a FD wing and whippet top, that sounds like it would be an FD2 lol
We certainly are always on the lookout to re-create the 2nd run FD. That is our main goal. The TDx is going to be quite a bit different than people think. However, it will be quite a nice disc and everyone needs to give it a shot. We will all have it in our bags when it is approved.

FDx will come one day. We have it on our radar. TDx first and then we can go after some other options. We also have plans to make another fast driver but none of the guesses from anyone are correct. The CD3 is amazing and although not a 13, is quite fast and very fun to throw.

Jenga you are on the right track for sure. You will love the TDx

The CD2 and Pd are so similar in that a broken in PD flies like a CD2. So if you increase the stability and speed. It sounds just like a PDX to me. This of course is generalizing a bit.

But we all know there are overlaps within Discs from manfacuturers.
It is not a PDx clone for sure. Fits nicely in the CD family as a faster and straighter flying CD2. Very good disc that everyone needs to give a fair chance. That being said, your descriptions of the discs above are good. Not everyone needs to have a PD and CD2 in the bag. All of us here definitely bag both and multiples of each. And now we bag the CD3.

There will be more. People were so excited to get their hands on the new batch that we sold out almost immediately. There has been a re-stock since and I believe there are still some there. Very very very good run of P2’s that literally everyone needs to check out. They feel incredible. About the Psycho stamp on the putters, that will likely never be done again.

It is deeper like the CD but faster than CD2 and gets a bit more play in the air. Very fun disc to throw.

Very good description! It has turned out to be quite the nice surprise that no one was really expecting. Granted, everyone just knew it was going to be some sort of Max replacement and was indeed no such thing. So far, we have gotten very good feedback on the CD3 and can’t wait to see videos and pictures of people loving their new discs. Keep up the good work!

That is a valid speculation. We would guess that yes, this disc would not be the most favorable option for the majority of forehand throwers. We have seen some very positive results from forehand throws with the CD3 but would advise that only players with a fine tuned forehand rely on this disc as an option in their round. Most folks don’t like to throw Valkyries for this reason but it too is a fantastic disc to throw forehand if you are skilled enough to do so. Just a comparison that I thought of. CD3 makes for a fantastic sidearm disc, you just need to find a way to tame it

A line up of discs for Pros

it's an awesome article - http://www.omagdigital.com/publication/?i=247624#{"issue_id":247624,"page":16}

But since then I've seen in order (2015 - MD, FD3, PDx) (2016 - DDx) (2017 - CD3)
So he's true to his word they won't be releasing a lot of molds, one for each slot. But these don't quite seem like they are for the Pro, maybe some.

But Hey - I love me some TD so yay, a longer TD
We are working on new ideas all the time and do to meet the expectations and promises stated. There will be more new molds coming this year and they will be absolute crowd pleasers. Though we want to produce a majority of “pro caliber” molds, we also want to grow the sport as well. Our young players are the future of the game and young folks that don’t even know what the sport is yet. Creating several new PD2-esque discs right away instead of something new that would benefit molding their game into something more would be detrimental to building a solid base of new athletes. We need to find a good mix between pro caliber products and discs that are friendly for everyone. The CD3 fits nicely in between those two categories.

I may be the only one who doesn't like second run FDs first run FD's all the way! My comment of the re-tooled whippet was more so for a "FDx" idea. speed 6/7 utility disc with tons of beef and a little play in flight!

The most stable FD in production is the bottom stamp 6th run FD. Very nice and reliable disc for sure. The newer FD's may be a touch less stable but not by much.
