Default Discmania FD3

Approved!

Specs-

21.2 width
2.0 rim width = speed 10
1.7 height
29.75 rim configuration
1.1 rim depth


Looks to be a speed 10 disc, unsure about stability.

I call it "the firebird for everyone"

In C-Line its flight is similar to a Star Firebird. It's not as overstable as FAF, metal flake, crazy-meathook-style FB's. It has more fade and wind resistance than a PD, but because it's not quite as overstable as a new Champ Firebird it makes it easy to throw farther while still getting that reliable finish even in the wind. If your max D is <320-330' you may see some overlap between the PD and the FD3, but anyone with 350'+ power, as well as anyone playing in windy conditions will see the difference between those two discs easily.

In testing, we all loved this disc, but what convinced us it was a winner is Simon loves it. Getting this type of disc in our lineup has been a priority for awhile and finally it's been delivered!

I like my Firebirds with a bit of dome as they're much easier to throw to me. No thumbers, so the FAF ones aren't my cup of tea.
So...color me intrigued.
Well, next year.

I thought FD stood for fairway driver... a 10 speed disc is not a fairway driver. If this is like a firebird then no no thanks
