Discmania (FD) Jackal

Postby Timko » Tue Nov 15, 2011 8:23 am

The Fairway Driver (or FD) is set to be released in the early part of 2012. It will also be know as the Jackal, and will be a slightly understable fairway driver.

Here's a link to Discmania's post on their website about the disc: http://www.discmania.net/2011/11/14/fd-in-the-works/

Specs:
Outside diameter: 21.2 cm
Inside rim diameter: 17.5 cm
Height: 1.8 cm
Rim depth: 1.1 cm
Rim thickness: 1.8 cm
Flight plate thickness: 0.2 cm
Flight plate to rim plane distance: 1.6 cm
Flexibility rating: 9.53 kg
Rim configuration rating: 34.75
Maximum weight allowed: 176.0 g


Things I know:
* It's been described to me as a faster Teebird by someone who has thrown it.
* It does not have the TL or EL bottom.

Let the speculation begin!

How can it be slightly understable but throw like a faster teebird?

I don't know. I'm hoping to get some more intel soon. Personally, I don't think you can't use those 2 terms together. But with limited information at the moment, I'll just repeat whatever is shown my way.

Luckily it's pretty easy to make a great fairway driver. Discmaniacs will scoop this thing up like crazy whether it's TB stable, TL stable, Leo stable, or anything between. They're squeezing it into a pretty small gap, but if they release it in P as well as S and C plastic it will be one of the few 16-20mm rimmed drivers available in those 3. I know there is a constant outcry for more fairway drivers in P/Pro plastic. In any event, I'm interested.

I would be pretty happy if it was like a leo/RR hybrid.

There hasn't really been a speed 7-8 understable control driver, this could fill the slot.

EDIT: Well, maybe the River...

True, but a seasoned TL does what you tell it to.

Me: TL, turn right.

TL: Okay!

See what I mean?
