And the PDs I have that don't fade that much anymore also show that the mold has good glide, but the fade of the unseasoned ones tends to bring them down before you can see it that clearly.JR wrote:And there are way longer discs out there because the PD doesn't glide that much and neither does the TB at least if you don't throw 400'+ with fast discs and the TB is 150. With that said the PD is a great go to work horse driver for under maximum distance.discspeed wrote:If you like your CPD+ you will love the SPD.

Throw a head high TB line drive at full power and then do the same with a King, light Nuke, light Blizzard discs and note the height at known distances. Even the Sword stays higher than the TB for me. The only TB that holds height somewhat for me is a 150 grammer. I can keep faster discs flat out to the distances i get with my TBs. The TB is slow while fast discs are almost at cruising speed where the TB lands at full power for me. YMMV. A little over 52 MPH on average with around 20 revs per second. I don't know how that goes relative to others but it ain't terribly short on spin. Although it ain't great either. Most TBs fade out on me the 150 Star ain't bad at all in fade at low apexes. And even it will drop early from slowing down fast vs speed 13 or even 10 in the Beast.
PD P 157 holds height nicely especially after a little bit of breaking in. I have a few 168s in S-Line and when new they fade out and drop. One of them is well broken in to lose HSS and most of wind handling and it fades later and less and has decent height retention. I think i have mostly more overstable S PDs compared to how others describe them and P PDs in 157 and 168 seem to be the same as for others. Discs vary but the 3 heavy TBs i've had all drop fast. One DX and two champs.
