I think you could use just TD's for fairway drives, since the S-lines are so stable. I think I could carry one or two of each and not feel anything missing, as long as I still had my predators for heavier winds.

I feel the same way. I actually haven't been throwing my OLFs much lately, basically been Eagle/Banshee/C-S-TD to cover pretty much anything.

Just got a C TD. Pretty flat neon yellow color. I have a tournament tomorrow so I probably won't throw it until after that sometime. I don't want to mess with my bag right before it.

My S-TD got me some of my longest drives ever on a few holes this afternoon with nice big anny shots. Complements my S-PD very nicely, definitely going to be checking out the new C-line versions of both.

got my clear orange C-TD in the mail today and went straight to the field. the slanted rim was a little too much at first but i soon forgot all about it. the disc reminds me of my seasoned rivers, just as long but finishes much straighter.

i'll take it to league tomorrow.

i threw my new c-td on every tailwind shot for 2 rounds today and kept my goto river in the bag. it was straighter and longer than my river ever was before on the same holes. even with the flashing still on it it seemed just too simple to keep the TD straight all day long. this really seems to be the disc i wanted but never fully got when i started throwing the river.

rivers are out for the foreseeable future and the C-TD is in.

The TD is considerably faster than the river so it's no wonder it's longer. That being said, it's an excellent disc which is making me consider of building another bag mainly consisting of discmania discs.

The C-TD is quickly becoming my go to distance driver - as long as there isn't a headwind.

It's sneaky long, and pretty darn predictable for being slightly understable. 10/5/-2/1 is a very fitting rating for this disc. Quickly becoming my new favorite driver as well :D

i carried mine into work with me today so i could set it on my desk and hold it from time to time. i'm like a highschool girl....

i've never been this pleased with new plastic or really any mold i can remember. maybe the beast when it first came out. yesterday on a very windy day i used my s-pd and c-td on every drive, either head or tail wind. this combo could kick out both the river and eagle-x.

i doubt i'll drop the eagle......

glad alot of people are finally liking the td. ive loved my s since they came out and the ctd just went back in the bag. you can still huck these in a moderate headwind with some hyzer for some nasty flex shots.

Seconded. Always felt the TD was under appreciated.

This is from another thread.. but it sums up my infatuation with the TD lately as well. I haven't been able to play lately due to snow and a very sick 2 year old, but I've been fondling my S-TD a lot. My Spider Monkey's been in the front seat lately and I often find myself pulling it out at a red light to fondle it. :oops:

Can someone compare the C-TD to a Quantum OLS? Does the TD have a lower cruising speed or about the same?
