Before I found the Alpha I would've been extremely needy of P-PDs but no longer.
Thank you for posting evidence.

Stupid idea.

Using this they could justify OOP'ing their whole lineup. I don't really feel like buying gpd to replace my ppd and working them in. Glad I didn't buy a ton of pd again because now I'll probably stop throwing them entirely. The beautiful thing about it was book-ending with a cpd or spd, working that into neutral, and then using ppd for neutral understable and as workhorses until the c or s line beat into goodness.

I mean, they know this is disc golf, right? None of it is popular except for new stuff and the classics.

Isn't this just a ploy to sell their existing stock and then create the demand for those "special" runs of pro?

Whatever, it's ridiculous any way you look at it. Basically nearly everyone who throws PDs seriously knows the value of having Ps in the lineup.

I'm guessing the large majority of PD throwers buy C-Lines and S-Lines. In order to have a run of plastic made, Discmania probably has to shell out a good amount of cash for Innova's minimum. While they've been around for several years, they still have a very small model line and haven't really been celebrating the success they've gained until the last couple years. It's entirely possible that shelling out that coin for discs that won't fly off shelves could kill their growth, especially if it's a run that us finicky golfers think is a "bad run". Do you want new molds? Beloved molds in different plastics?

There's been a lot of love lately since the letters OOP were written, but there hasn't been before that. Relax guys. Stock up now, keep recommending P-Lines, create the demand, and they'll be back.

Looking at their Stock at a Glance order forms, on 9/20 Innova West had P-PDs in stock from 170-175g, and on 9/22 Innova East was out of stock of all P-PDs.

PDs still in the bag, but the new glow cd2 is covering a lot of my seasoned PD shots

When I think of the pd family I think having a cpd, spd, and a ppd and you have just about any distance shot covered.

Been trying a flat, max weight C-PD for utility OS duties. Played a hole 3 times yesterday where the shot is a 250 ft FH, clearing trees on the right/middle, swinging it out left over a small creek then fading back to the basket. Happened to have a 15 mph headwind straight into my face yesterday too.

Parked the first shot and turned it over into the exact same spot into the creek the next 2 times. Guy befind me had a sexybird that just ate the headwind and finished right of the basket.

Anybody using a C-PD as a Firebird replacement? Should I just give in and become another sexybird devotee?

It looks like they restocked the P-Line's at discgolfcenter. I bought one from Disc Nation a few weeks ago and it's a lot more overstable than I remember them and the plastic feel is completely different. It's annoying every disc that I've ever liked from the past is impossible to buy a new one that flies like the old one.

They didn't restock, those have been there for awhile. It's actually my personal stock and your announcement has forced me to order 4 more.

Hmm, I looked like a month ago and they only had a few 175's. That's why I ended up buying one from Disc Nation for like 5 dollars more, which is kind-of ridiculous.
