DGV would be a good place to start.

Anyone gotten flat C-MD2's from an online US retailer?
I currently have a domey pink one 177+ and really dig the HSS and the fade on it. Just wished it would fade later in the flight, which if I've read correctly is what the flat ones will do.

I didn't see such an option at Discmania now. I've never seen a flat C MD2. I would have bought one based on how jubuttib describes them.
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.

Hmm, darn.

FWIW they're not dead flat, they can have a slight dome (EDIT: The yellow gummy opaque good one in my bag for instance has a noticeable dome compared to my older pink ones). The gummy opaque thing is also one thing that's always been common for the best ones. The clear stiff ones I've thrown slow down fast and fade harder/earlier, and the gummy clear ones I've thrown have been quite understable, could replace my beat D-MD2's, and one was actually less stable than my most beat D-MD2, couldn't get it to fade at all (also liked to drop out of the air nearly instantly, just no glide at all in that thing).

I see the same shape difference thing in my R-Pro + mold Roc with almost totally flat top vs regular DX Rancho. R-Pro Roc rocks. Although i've yet to throw mine in wet and cold conditions so i can't say if the grip is good enough then. In summer weather the added grip counters the + slant. Wind performance wasn't the best in a front quarter wind but all they had was 174 so the added 6 grams of a max weight may cure that issue.

Can someone post a picture of one of these new gummy yellows? Like a side profile shot? I stumbled upon the MD2 a year ago when I was looking for a mid that could handle wind better than my Mako, and I just happened to like pink opaque discs. So I grabbed two of them, not realizing they were going to vanish. One is my go to mid, the other is 10/10 and hidden under my bed :) Here's a pic of my flat, gummy opaque MD2, along with my newer FD. I'd really like to grab another backup or two since I can't see ever wanting to throw another mid!

The gummy yellows I have are basically identical to the gummy pink ones, just yellow and with a very slightly higher dome.

That's a beauty by the way. Luckily I got three of those before the team players snatched up all of them. =)

That looks like the same run of champ that the McBeth Rocs (and other recent champ runs...Beast for ex.) which isn't nearly the same as the gummy opaque C's that were fabled...but I bet these are going to be sweet nonetheless.
