I asked him about how the discs are designed. Dave does the actual design part (quite obviously) but Jussi tells him what they're looking for, tests and approves everything. For example the PD took four molds and over a year of fiddling to get it to where Jussi wanted it to be. Apart from the P1 (which is just an Aviar) I think he said that the only disc that was just right on the first try was the TD.
The TD isn't a real turning driver, Dave F. threw them during his clinic at ~80% power, I've never seen a straighter ~430' drive in my life. My personal experience is that you need to beat the TD in properly before it starts it's magic (for my red slightly translucent champystar this meant around 20-30 drives into a wall and some sliding in a tunnel). It's NOT the same as a Roadrunner, but it's a very good disc. Also, the C-Lines seem to be more understable, according to Jussi (and my own Finnish Open C-TD).
I don't know how well a new Roc fights the wind, but I'm having a hard time imagining my S-MD1 turning on a clean throw (I can imagine my SG-MD1 turning, but only slightly). Too bad it can't handle any OAT, that's why the SG-MD1 rules. My old D-MD1 did start out more overstable than the others, but I've thrown some newer ones this year and they haven't been quite as HSS or LSS. Buyer beware.
My MD2s (orange P-Lines) have been magical for me. For my game it's the single greatest disc ever created.
PS. It was REALLY windy when we filmed the video (well, not at that particular moment, but earlier), it was awe inspiring to see him throw used 150 class D-MD1s and D-P1s in that wind.
