Will Discraft make anymore PROTO or is it time for a FR?

But every single Discraft mould is sold out in many shops. . .So maybe its hard for them to even make a new run at the moment, they need to get discs out to the stores. . fast

I'd be interested in a Z Hades, personally. A little more HSS would be nice, or at least not as touchy. What it might lose in dome/glide, I'd have to believe it would make up for with wind resistance. Maybe we'll find out?

Anyone have a comparison between the prototype and first runs?

I am wondering the same thing. I hope the FR are a little less touchy than the proto.

I have one but haven't gotten a chance to throw it back to back yet.

I have a 174g proto that's a touch understable, a 156g that's fairly beefy, straight to hyzer finish and I just received a 170g FR. it's definitely not as domey as either of my proto's but the dome alone doesn't seem to dictate stability for my Hades.

Hmm the biggest webstore here in Sweden dropped 130pc of HADES a few days ago..sold out instantly

They dropped 127pc more yesterday, sold out before i even got on to the page.

Its no longer "i want to buy that disc" more like "i want to buy one but i have to wait to see if Discraft lets me buy one"

For folks bagging the Hades, what are you using as the next step up in stability for the same slot?

Say, you'd normally throw the Hades on that hole but there's a little headwind.

I've got a Couple Nukes and Forces I occasionally play with for field practice. But those are all significantly more stable and my form isn't getting any glide/turn out of them at all.

Typically In the type of wind I'm talking about I'll just disc down to a stable fairway like the FD or Undertaker.

The Crank would definitely work in that slot if you find the Nuke too overstable.
