Interested to see if that dome starts to creep into the production line ones. I don't mind a dome personally, but comparing those early McBeth TeeBird3s with the more recent runs makes me wonder - the early ones were board flat, and more recently ALL 3-mold discs seem to have been rushed through the cooling process or something, slight domes on everything.

I will say that my RR is crazy flat and I don't require that much flatness by any means.

Nice. I thought that the color glows were too flat and it was effecting the high speed stability. Should push the glide out a bit as well.
When these finally come out here, I’m going to order a TL3 as well to compare and possibly pair.

That Production run looks really good. I little more HSS is what this slot needed. And that looks like the good champ plastic. Well time to sell more discs to make room for a stack

if that vid's correct then with little xtra stability these production runs should be very close to those second run FD's

no test flights yet sorry, suffering from small lumbago atm

Been throwing the stock run a bit now.
They are more stable than RR and 2nd run OOTB. Interesting to see how they start to break in. These will definitely be a good replacement for those 2nd run fd:s.

Also had some field testing today with mine.
350' sandy field, wind was coming from random directions at around 12 mph.

This c-line felt noticeably tackier than my old slick c-line FD.

To accompany the FD2(175g) I selected drivers from my bag: star Teebird(175g), c-line FD(171g), plasma Volt(175g), neutron Lift(168g) and proton Wrath(169g).

Very quickly I noticed that FD2 combined great stability with good glide, definetly more stable than FD, Volt or Lift.

With my noodle arm the disc felt slightly more stable than my somewhat beat Teebird, lines were closest to the Wrath, straight with the hardest rips and then hefty fade in the end.

Been a while since I've last thrown FD3 but for noodles this felt kinda like FD3 with less fade.

So after using the RR for 4ish months now I can say it's the perfect disc for my forehand. Flicks for 300' almost dead straight with very little right to left and just a slight right finish. Loving it for the feel and the flight. Now I just wish I had more time to get out and use it more often.
