MD2

Postby dgdave » Wed Jul 21, 2010 8:15 am

So how different are these from a Mako? Are they crazy domey like the last run of Makos?

I've been curious about these as well. They're supposed to be between a mako and coyote but there's not much difference in those 2 already. The s lines that I have seen have all been nice and flat. Almost roc like with that micro bead. I haven't seen the champs buti would think that those might me domey like the champ makos came out. Dave go buy one and throw it so I can find out how it flies :)
always looking for:
flat pink/red barstamp buzzzs, ce aviars, pearly pro candy fb's, pearly champion gators (fr or stock stamp),

I tried one. They are definitely not as domey as the newer Makos, and the plastic is not quite as soft either. I found the MD2 to be considerably more stable than a Mako. I haven't thrown the supposedly more stable Coyote that came out when the Makos did, but the MD2 is how I imagined they would fly. It flew like a seasoned Champ Shark with a little more glide. Not a bad disc, but nothing new or remarkable either.

Don't know about Mako but MD2 is pretty close to slightly beat Buzzz.

I saw one at the disc golf shop and was curious, but didnt buy. So you would say it's like an X Buzzz??

no, they are more overstable Makos. I throw Buzzz's and Makos and the MD2 is definitely more overstable than both

Do you have a S or P line MD2? At least my P-line was little overstable for the first 20 throws and after that it was buzzz-like. Not more than couple tree hits and it was like my year old ESP Buzzz (a.k.a straight). It holds every line that buzzz holds.

I've only thrown my C-MD2 a few times, but I'd say its a little more stable than my Star Mako but much less stable than my CryZtal Buzz. It's maybe closer to my E-Element. My C-MD2 has some dome but not too much. So far I'd say its a really nice disc. But I don't throw it much because I like my midrange situation now.

S-MD2. Anything in Pro plastic should end up less stable after about 20 throws.

How domey was the C-MD2?

I have 1 S and have had 2 Ps (traded the first one for a Star Monster, some first timers were trying out our new course and they had one disc per person, two putters, a Champ Shark and the damn Star Monster. I couldn't bear it.)

The S seems to do S-lines more naturally, turning a bit and fading at the end. The Ps are my new love, they're perhaps the straightest mid I've thrown when powered. I can rip them as hard as I want and they will not turn. When thrown soft there is a significant fade, which disappears with power.They're also surprisingly glidey and forgiving, and I love them. My P (which is really R-Pro) has seen many trees in it's life, and it hasn't changed at all.

I'd kinda like to put it between the X and the Z Buzzz, less LSS than the Z, more HSS than the X. Though in reality it's actually more HSS than even my 178 supercolor Z Buzzz (my friend does have a normal Z Buzzz and it's about the same HSS as my P-MD2).

P-MD2 @ 176 or so = bliss.

Just came back from the course, played a one disc round with my P-MD2. It rules. That is all.

I'm very interested to know what people think of this disc as well...I want to try it out but haven't bought one yet because I think it will just be too similar to a roc flight (maybe a touch faster) so it will just sit around.

I picked up a mako to try in my understable mid slot, but I have a nice beat sanny roc sitting in that slot right now that is a fantastic turnover mid. I'd like to try the md2 out there as well, but the shape of the wing - when compared to a mako - just looks like it is too stable to fit the bill.

It's definitely no Mako. The P-Lines I have are more HSS than an X Buzzz (though I've only tried one) and less LSS than than a Z Buzzz. It's silly straight when powered, though despite the apparent lack of LSS when thrown hard, on slower throws it fades more than I initially expected. Mainly because I wasn't expecting it to fade at all.

S-Lines I've tried turn a bit more with similar fade, so roughly an X Buzzz like flight. Weights are 175 & 176 for the Ps and 177 for the S.

I'm thinking if I should order C-line MD2. 'Cause it's somewhat more stable than P and S-line it would propably overlap with my KC Roc. But I'm still little interested of it.
It's only available in finnish Powergrip.fi and it's Finnish Open 2010 fundraiser disc. 10 disc batch.

Btw. heard from the discmanias warehouse that it will go to regular production next year.
