Agree with some earlier comments that it looks speed 10/11ish to me. Maybe a slightly more understable PD or DD? A longer FD basically? Could be something Krait-like.

10-11/5/-1/1 ?

I agree that the rim width looks like it's about 20-21mm. The shoulder looks like the shoulder of a Roadrunner, so I'm guessing that this is some kind of understable control / distance driver

im guessing a stable-overstable speed 11 disc for people to slot between their pd's and pd2's. right now they have the cd as their only speed 11 and it only has 2 as the fade number, which is slightly straight. i could see this having number like 11/4/0/3, or 11/4/0/4. basically a less glidey, more controllable, and more overstable CD. call it the PD3 and people will eat these up.

I'm pretty sure they already released the exact disc you describe; it's the new PDX. This proto is something different.

The pdx and max weight sdd\cdd already have that area covered.

What I'm really hoping for is a speed 12 TD with a convex rim.

2Nd runs have an experimental plastic blend that is firmer and heavier than regular champ or JL (c-line) they had to add bubbles in the rim(a new the technology at the time) to bring them down yo weight. That much I know for sure. I'd guess the denser material cooled at a different rate than the traditional C-line and that is what caused the variation in shape. But yeah, a S-line 2nd [C-line] run is not a thing that would be possible. It'd be more likely that they TRY to recreate the 2nd runs in a limited batch. That being said, it'd be really cool if this new proto is meant to be a big brother to the FD. Sorta like a nicely seasoned P-pd, not too beat; but in C-line.

That's what I've been hoping/thinking.

Once again for the record, CD3 is my guess.

That's good to know. Thanks for passing that along.
