At least my yellow one has a noticeable slant, but unless it's on the levels of those DKG discs (or was it some other manufacturer?) it's all in your head anyway.

I have not noticed that slightest difference in grip or release with my C-TDs, if nobody had told me they were slanted I doubt I would have ever noticed.

I don't really notice it either. What we should be saying is "slightly more slanted" because the original core is not 90 degrees either.

Personally, when I learn any new mold there is an adjustment period in grip. When I throw I can feel when I'm connecting correctly on my release, and if I'm not then I making micro adjustments to how the disc is orientated exactly in my hand. Within a short time I can get used to almost anything. To me the feel of the slant is nowhere near as dramatic as the feel of a big bead vs. no bead, or even the feel of a convex rim (TD) vs. concave rim (PD). Going between discs like those takes more getting used to for me than the rim angle of any disc I've thrown.

These production CTD are awesome. All my Production CTD have a pretty significantly higher PLH. These production CTD remind me very much of a LONGER version of my Champ EagleX. These are definitely more HSS/LSS than all my other S or C TD.

I really like these a lot. Also the tilt of the inner rim on mine isnt there or if it is its very minimal.

From what I see the 160s have a more defined slant. All our 175 are pretty normal

I have 4 175g C-TD's and I personally don't notice any grip difference between those and my S-lines. So there is one more vote for "don't worry about it."

Do the stable ones have the patent number tooling on the back? My production CTDs would never be compared to any EXs...They are much more RR than EX.

Probably a lot more comparative to a faster Eagle-L than a roadrunner, in my opinion.
