Few more rounds with the PD3. It was really windy today, so I used it off more tees than I normally would. Throwing it on the same lines I'd usually throw a Star Max or metal flake Slab, as it's working the same.

No high speed turn, plenty of fade. Brilliant disc. Happy to have a glow max.

Do these have a blunt nose similar to the Max? Thats one of the best features of the Max, very comfortable forehand grip plus is an amazing forehand roller disc.

The couple glow Maxes Ive had were more on the domey side, but its looking like these are fairly domey also?

From what I can tell it's an exact clone of the Max. Mine arrived with a small pop top. The flight plate is soft on this run of Glow C-Line (champ).

That is nearly the same disc, because Innova itself will not make a disc lower then 21.1 cm so a few of the dimensions will be different if both molds have a Rim depth and rim thickness if Max is 21.2 cm diameter and PD-3 is 21 cm diameter.

Yep so the two top pro players of Discmania can have a full bag. The Max is getting the side boot is my guess as a backup for Eagle's bag or for practice rounds only is the Max used, that is just my guess.

Only Eagle throws the Max. I doubt Simon will ever bag this disc seriously.

Also the PD3 has been a running meme/joke for years. This likely has a lot more to do with Infinite being allowed to rebrand the Max into the Slab than anything else.

If Eagle lost his Max he would likely need to pick up a slab to replace it and I think that's the only thing Discmania really wanted to avoid.

So not quite identical, but very close. Thanks for posting these.

Plastic type changes these values too.

Id bet its identical mold and these are just normal variations.

I know that Simon will not bag the disc but to have both top players on Disc Golf team Discmania with Full Discmania bags now. It is nice and great to see a mold revived by two Innova produced discs for two companies as i the Max was really popular with players for skip hoking hyzers, Tomahawk, and thumber/hammer throw.
