Have you tried our newest Fairway Driver the FD2? If that the type of flight you're looking for, I would most certainly give the FD2 a throw.

That's what we would recommend.

Now, to my question. Does Discmania have any plans to produce a mold or two in the "3" fashion (i.e. Roc->Roc3, Shark->Shark3)?
Our MD3 has the the "3 top"

Flat, pure beef, overtly overstable utility disc (Gator,Whippet,Drone)

granted I absolutely love my stash of firm pro rhynos, flat top gators, and onterio cobras, these are the slots yet to be contested by DM.

ps. I think that flat md2s may be comparable to KCobras but I've never had luck finding one in person, anybody find them similar?
We will keep these types of discs in mind for future productions.

One disc I would recommend if you like King Cobras would be our new 2014 Jolly Launcher MD2s. They start out more overstable and retain their high speed stability.

We do have a fair amount of requests for this. We will keep this in mind certainly.

If it was announced it would be on the Discmania website under the Team tab.

I see. Have you tried the G-LINE FD for that understable Leopard like shot?

I'm by no means an expert on the midranges though, I'm just learning them myself.
The flat MD2 does loose it's high speed stability a little bit where the other two mentioned midranges do not. I would again recommend our new 2014 Jolly Launcher MD2. It sounds exactly what you guys are looking for.

We are sorry you think our shipping prices are too high, we take this very seriously and try to work often with the USPS and UPS to get lower shipping prices.

We are unsure what you're asking here. Can you please rephrase?

The FD2 overlaps with the PD for you? I think I understand what you're looking for with slower discs. What types of shots are looking to accomplish with this? Did I miss a post?

Thanks for the comments guys, I am trying to get on here more and more.

im looking for the 250-350 ft, speed 6 , distance that has no turn and has more than dependable fade. a utility for most but in p line and maybe g line could beat to almost straight.

Yes! I was referencing fasteddies comment about wanting a "Flat, pure beef, overtly overstable utility disc" or basically just a meat hook for a midrange and thought that could be a nice spot for a potential MD4.

I know glow md3s are overstable but it would be cool to see a new mid or a stiff/flat runs of the md3s!

Honestly you're just describing the FD2. I think practice is your answer here, not a new mold. The PD is much faster and has more turn, which is what leads me to the practice conclusion.

But that's just my .02, take it or leave it.

Can we request the S-PD Freak stamp to be on the C-PD?
