Late reply here.

The swirly DDs that released this year are not flat, but not "domey" just a nice mild dome. Feel good in the hand FH and BH for me (but aren't flat). This run is also not really OS in my book. No where close to the over stability of a first run PD or the latest embossed run. It does fly really nice, has good glide, and a late healthy fade. I'd rate it at 11 5 -.5 2.5 when thrown flat out to 375-400. It will hold an anny until late, and a hyzer all the way to the ground.

I've thrown some older S-Line DDs that have a bit more dome, but not the pop-top ones. They are more OS but not as comfortable in the hand and I've stayed away from them in the past for that reason.

I have bagged flat OS wraiths for a long time and the Swirly DD is the closet thing to a beat in flat OS old star I have found. Wear will probably change them more quickly as new star/s-line beats in a lot faster than old hard star seemed too.

Right now I have one of the new star wraiths in the bag next to the Swirly DD. Now that I'm throwing the PD and PD2 I just don't need the super OS 11 speed slot anymore. A PDx would probably fill that role better than a DD anyway. I'm actually going to sell the latest OS wraiths I picked up used because I already throw way too much rare and hard to replace plastic.

Yeah the swirly DDs are pretty close to a Glow PD2 IMO. Perhaps a smidge more turn and holds on to it for a while longer. I am thinking / hoping that when it beats in, it will only get longer and longer

Anywho I didn't like this disc much before because I cannot for the life of me get a consistent grip on it. It's possibly the shallowest feeling disc ever made.

I will probably save this one for a special occasion in the Spring.

Anyone have any anecdotal thoughts about this mold and the variations that exist?
The DDX is a love/hate mold. That said, you can actually get used to it and learn to like it if you practice with it. The DDX is a very capable driver that will bomb if you really lean into it. They tend to be a little flatter and more overstable than Terns. Very shallow rim, which seems to be what most people dislike about them.

What I like about the DDX is that it will handle a big rip and not flip over all the way. The disc has some nice high speed turn followed by a predictable late (somewhat dumpy) fade. Thrown hard the DDX will produce majestic S curves.

I've thrown a swirly star DDX and it worked great. For me it flew just about like other star DDXs. It flew like the numbers assigned to the mold.

I haven't really thrown a bad DDX. They're predictable. High speed turn followed by late fade. IMO its a good mold. Guys who find Terns just a tad too flippy should definitely check out the DDX.

If you're looking to buy some I've got two of them. One lightly thrown and one unthrown.

Like the DDx flight but cant get used to the shallowish rim? Get a CD3. Less turn, less fade +- it pretty much evens out to similar destination as the DDx, maybe a hair shorter. But the rim feels beefier in the hand.
