First image is the retooled FD2 (left) and a 6th run FD (right)

Second image is the retooled FD2 (left) and a 2nd run FD (right)

The retooled FD2 has a much more noticeable dome than the second runs I have, but similar to other FDs I've had from other runs such as 3rd, 5th, and 6th.

Looks like they finally got it fairly close to the magic of the 2nd run. God I wish they would have ran it in C-Line I would have bought 10.

The rims are still different and the FD2 has a slight lip. Also, they will be releasing these in other plastics, they just went with the shimmer for the Konopiste fundraiser. C-lines were made and tested by Simon, Jussi, and some others. We will just have to wait.

This should be DM's catch phrase instead of 'reinvent your game'.

Threw one today. Very stable. Moreso than a flat FD2, let alone a 2nd run FD. Should get mine tomorrow. Plastic is quite G-liney.

When you say "stable", do you mean straight or overstable?

My guess would be overstable. On the Discmania website they wrote that they think this is going to be the most overstable version on the new FD2.

I threw mine a few times yesterday and they were surprisingly overstable. More stable than a teebird or 2nd run fd for sure. Reminded me more of an eagle without the turn. I'm really looking forward to the other versions of this so that they aren't as overstable.
