@smarkquart, check out a S-CD2 if you're wanting a straighter PD. I think you'll find them to be more of what you're looking for instead of trying to chase unicorn PDs.

Late to the party, but I've been looking for something to go with my Thunderbirds, and I ran across some PDs while traveling. Picked up an S and a P. I have not liked any other discs with that weird top. We will see.

I have three PDx coming the mail. I am going to give them a try. I am not short on discs, so ultimately if these do not work out for me, I have a fairly reliable River (or FD), TeeBird, Thunderbird combo running.

I have put it off long enough in hopes of staying in advance to earn as many points as possible for an Am Worlds invite, but this year I am moving to Advance Masters. I know several of the people in this group; while I easily out-drive most of them, their precision game is superior to my own. Thus, while I fare well in the woods, I am nowhere as consistent as I would like to be. So again, I have a workable lineup with plenty of spares, but if there is/are disc(s) out there that can improve what I am already running, I definitely want to look into them.

I picked up two more S PDs thinking that instead of replacing the Thunderbirds, they could replace my TeeBirds. In this slot, they fared better, but they still had more turn that I would have liked. There were some shots where that actually helped, but my litmus test hole, where I need a 340 straight shot, I still tracked too far right. A later shot, where I needed 360+ that had to track right before having a modest fade, then it performed almost exactly how I wanted it to.

It seems these S PDs have a learning curve; trying to find the correct arm speed to snap ratio while also watching your wrist angle, but I see the potential there when I nail it right. However, I am looking for something in that slot where I can trust that it will correct itself if thrown less than ideally. The G PDs were closer to what I wanted flight-wise, but they seemed to lack the glide of the S.

While in the store yesterday, I had two C PDs in my hand, but I could not pull the trigger on them. Still, after getting home and looking at how the S worked for over the course of 50 holes, I jumped onto the Discmania and Innova store and picked up 1 C PD and 3 C PDx. Hopefully they will arrive before this Friday so that I have time to prep and test them before this upcoming weekend's league opener.

The pd and thunderbird are nearly indentical discs. The edge of the PD is retooled a little giving it a sharper lip.

So if you are happy with a thunderbird no real reason to switch.

I think the initial attraction over the thunder was those coveted runs that were os.. really thats all I see as why one would be better than the other.

Off the bat I bought two champ factory store thunders. Lightweight, purple tacky champ with some blemishes on them (hence factory). They flew long cut through the wind. Amazing speed 10.

Wanting to try the pds. I bought the pline plastic and loved them in that plastic. After buying way too much pds in champ, swirl star. I realized I could have sampled all the thunder plastic and been just as happy.

How P-line PD beats in? I have some pro Destroyers that need too much room to work in woods (bh, hyzer flip, ~350+ ft)
175 G-line PD feels too ovestable for that, but i dont want add any new molds.

Back when I used to throw ppd, the ppd lost lss then lost hss.

This is a few years ago, but the flat ppd turned slightly out of the box. The domey purple ones were the beefcakes.

Also, go down a few speeds and throw a fd. They are straight lasers and pair nicely with the pd.

Question for 1st run C-PD throwers here, I got 2 1st run throwers the other day off FB and I was surprised to see they had so high speed turn when I ripped on them. Anyone else experience this? I think it may be due to the amount of wear on them. I know they're first runs because their PLH is pretty dang high.
