What about the c lines?
The FR CD's are fantastic discs, that is definitely true. Later runs have a totally different top (the Anhyzer top) which also make the nose sharper. The production ones on the whole are less HSS, same or less LSS, faster, glidier, perhaps touchier and less consistent. A completely different disc really. Great for finesse shots or a less power oriented player, but not much else. A shame really, I bothered them to bring back the FR mold as CD2, but they said that mold part is broken so there's no way of them coming back...

There are no C-CD's.


I had a nice light green one of these(FR-CD) and threw it off and on. One day, I lost it, and I was sad. They are long and kinda feel in my hand like a Eagle does. They did not have a very big rim, and I liked how easy they were to feel the pivot. Teebirds and Eagles have since taken over that slot. C'est la vie!

On a side note... Is there anything in the discmania line up that is more over stable than a firebird and a bit faster?

Ok, thanks. My buddy was asking me this question. He likes to throw Innova only, but I was thinking discmania would work.
I may just take a Z Pred with the stamp removed and hand it to him. :evil:

How much faster? The PD2 sounds like it'd be about right, but it's more of a more overstable XCaliber. The flat CFR C-PD's are as close as Discmania has come to the Firebird.

kc pro p2 feels sweet

pretty much all of them are flat and slightly concave. I don't have any domey ones. One is almost Yeti concave. Some have off-white swirls, looks awesome.

Feels more like a yeti/jk mixed with kc pro. it is definitely a different kc pro blend from the usually kc avairs. I guess being a test run that makes sense. I really hope this test run turns into a stock run. I won't be letting these go

That description makes me less excited about these. I HATE concave putters and i wanted really stiff. Oh well, if I don't like them, I've got killer trade bait.

Can you remember how much the postage was for the SS package? I would be really interested in those, especially if I didn't have to worry about customs.

Mine is a ok but i'm not sure about declaring them to be the greatest mid. For more power than i have it may be even better than for me. It is a contender for the best mid spot though. Depends on your needs and likes.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.
