It's my understanding that the PD was retooled several times prior to the existing configuration in an effort to perfect what they were going for. So those are basically throw away R&D discs they are selling that by definition are not as good as the PD as we know it. That's not to say they won't fly good for someone, but even if they do why take the chance on what will be an irreplaceable disc? My advice would be to buy a normal SPD. As I've said before, I've never thrown a bad one. If it's not what you are looking for (PDs are pretty variable) chances are it will be exactly what someone else wants.

They have a different top. They are definitely beefier than normal S-PDs and are flatter and therefore lack glide.

At the moment I'm rocking 4 different pds in the bag, and all serve different purposes. My main pd is a 172 gummy p line, it's starting to break in nice and for me flies like a longer broken in teebird...straight as an arrow with minimal fade. I just picked up a 150 class s line f2 from the proshop and flightwise is is very similar to my p line. I've been using this a lot for overhand shots in hopes to season it in a bit quicker, and once it hits its sweet spot I think it's gonna be absolutely money. I've got a 168 s line that's a hilighter yellow color and the plastic is pretty stiff. I'm using this for wind duties and tight flex shots. It's a really fun disc to throw, I can put it on just about whatever line I want have confidence that it's going to do what I need it to do. The last one is a 172 pearly blue c line f2 that is from the new run of non + rim c lines. I haven't thrown a cfr run to compare it to, but it's definitely the most overstable of the 4. This one has a bit of a dome and gets thrown on forehand shots. I've thrown a lot of flex shots with it and it likes to pull out of its turn a lot quicker than my s line.

What I like most about the pd is its rim size. The rim is small enough to grip easily and the disc is stable enough to give it a good full rip and not have to worry about what it's going to do.

It's a shame for innova that this disc doesn't have their stamp on it, a lot of places just don't carry discmania. If it were sold as an innova disc and reached the number of stores that all of their other drivers do I think it would be one of their best selling discs. Instead it lives a quiet life destined for message board praise and begs the question, "man, that was a good rip. what disc was that?"

More hss, does better in the wind than an orc, less touchy, still gets good distance, although in an open field i be they have about the same potential. Pd works more lines imo

How would a pd compare to an olf?

Also if you add quotation marks around a small word like pd in the search bar of will find those small words.

Search pd finds 0 results.
Search "pd" finds what you're looking for.
