Yeah I agree, they do.

But if you are referring to team or media team members praising a disc, to think anyone would rave about a product they really dont like, suggests a cynical point of view.

I truly think this is a great mold, at least for me. Other offerings from 2018 for example that I didnt click with that much, I gave my review on them, what they fly and feel like for me, and have not said much about since. Like the Luster MD, just not for me, and you dont see me ranting about them like theyre the new coming of CE.

I dont know if that was what you were going at but trust me I am 100% sincere with these.

I was just alluding to the hype of this disc. I’ve thrown teebirds for ever and I don’t believe that the instinct or FD2v3 could be reinventing the game at this point, but I still feel an urge to try them out. Seeing a guy with a discmania-logo as a profile pic raving about these two discs combined with recent ITB-videos with a clear turn to marketing discs is a turn off for me but I STILL wan’t to try them. So they must be doing something right...

Fair enough. Its ok to want to try a disc. I still think the DD3 has the biggest hype. Mostly thanks to Eagle. Had he hit inbounds on his last drive at GBO that would have been the marketing act of the year. At this point they could mold up 10,000 of them only to have them gobbled up by the masses.

Agree with the hype about the DD3 and they're pimpin the Instinct pretty hard, though that is probably because it's a new release. The hype about the RR FD2 seems to have died down around here. All the shops still have them in stock.

I bought 2 pink 175g RRs because I liked the flat profile and C-glow plastic, plus they 'hyped' it as a 2nd run FD attempt. I really do like the feel and flight but I don't find it terribly different from other S/OS fairway drivers. It doesn't have quite the HSS I expected. Definitely keeping them around and will still bag them occasionally.

I am sure you are talking about me. I will say I usually have a positive message to whatever new discs I receive because hey...I love me some frisbees. I will however say that if I were to NOT hype new releases I am sure I would be criticized for that as well so I will stay on the hype train. The FD2 needs no words said about it. Just go throw it and find out! Will be staying in my bag and the instinct will not.

You and others

What do you find are the main differences between the two and why did the FD2 stick and not the instinct?

I have been throwing FDs for like 4 years and the FD2 feels very similar and the flight mocks what I wanted an FD to be like. The instinct has a "fuller" hand feel almost more akin to a mid range which feels great but just...different. My FD2s just want to end up near baskets. I already have immense trust in what these discs are capable of. My instinct seems more finicky where small adjustments cause larger differences in flight.

Interesting. I feel like the FD2 is the "fuller" of the two, because the almost convex wing.

Wow the last page was a real dumpster. To those salty about Discmania's supposed marketing push on these, cram it.
