This specific disc has a smaller dome (pretty common for 10th runs) and it's a little less OS than the max weight ones. I tossed it in a field a few times when I bought it because I wanted to try the lower weight. I thought it might be easier to throw big hyzers with because discs tend to feel heavier for me on extreme hyzer releases and since I bag a lot of max weight stuff I tend to avoid throwing those lines because they cause some discomfort for me.

It flew about the same distance as my 8th runs but didn't fade quite as hard. It still holds the angle on a hyzer release and flies straight when released flat. I only threw it maybe 10 times though. I just didn't notice enough of a difference in the flight between it and max weight to put it in the bag as a tweener but it was just a tick less OS than my others so it didn't kick them out either.

I’ve got some of these stiffer ones in the upper 160s and low 170s with tournament stamps. Need to take the time tonight to post a giant for sale thread. Also have some of the brand new run of s pds.

So I'm thinking this is too many to be a CFR/TFR special run type thing and that we have new swirly PD's coming at some point in the near ish future? Has DM said anything about swirly PDs? Did I just get the coolest person packing my orders and they gave me all the swirly PD's?
Nice score! Did you order regular S and get Swirls?

Yup! And they don't seem off really at all, the wing edge on some are a bit odd, like someone messed up on the deflashing machine or whatever, but otherwise they look great, better than a lot of the "swirly" stuff I see around

10 years of the PD! Discmania is claiming that the new run of C-lines are almost identical to first run PD’s.. either that or it’s just a marketing gimmick.
Either it worked on me and I ordered a couple.

Anybody get a new CPD from the new embossed run? I just got mine.. pretty disappointed. There’s pretty bad flashing around the parting edge, big ol’ nub in the center, and a warp in the flight plate. Definitely should have been a factory second.

Anybody else have this happen?

Yikes, is this the new 10 year anniversary run? Been thinking of getting a couple new ones in the upper 160's.

I'd ask for a replacement, especially with a warp in the flight plate.

I picked up 3 stock stamps from the latest run. They are all 175g Yellow/green, have the embossed bottom, and have a dimple on top. They have some inconsistency in the plastic near the injection site, but no serious warping. No flashing issues.
The one mini bar stamp I bought doesn’t have the dimple, and has a slightly lower dome. They all look to have the same PLH.

Spot on assessment overall on this disc. Bagged it for a couple rounds and some field work. Slightly less OS than the flat 167g that I lost but there's no such thing as a bad PD. Weight is right where I like a C-line.

As much as every year I do not like experimenting with the mixing and matching of my bag's lineup, I do end up doing that every year anyway.

How that is related to this thread is that I have cycled back to using G-PDs. I loved them last winter for being deadly straight when powered without being meathooks when I back off that power. I am a little nervous about the plastic, however, because I have already cracked two of them, and I am not sure how easy they would be to continue replacing. So I tried other discs in its place including trying to beat in C-PDs and Champion Thunderbirds. In the end, G-PDs are back in the bag and I have no intention of replacing them in the near future. I held on to my Thunderbirds in case there is a day they cannot purchased any more, but those Thunderbirds are going to need a severe seasoning to get them where these awesome goodies are at right now.
