I carry both and they fill very different rolls for me.

For new discs yes but a broken in P PD would be closer. I dunno about those kind of Orcs but C PDs are harder fading than S-Line PDs.
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.

My beat SFD has much less HSS and more LSS than my beat PPD.

I just ordered some of the S-Line and P-Line PD's to go with the rest of my bag.

My buddy said this is the best thing to happen to my bag. :D

I'm very interested in these discs but my heads blowing up trying to get through all these pages.

Are these still worth picking up or is the mold changed too much?

What's the preferable plastic? I was thinking s line but no idea if it's any better than the c line.

C-Line is over stable and not a lot of glide.

S-Line is pretty straight with good glide. (longer Teebird?)

P-Line is more of an S curve out of the box with great glide. (longer Eagle?)

I bought a P-PD over the winter and am loving it. I would say they are definitely worth picking up.

Premium EX's don't turn out of the box...at least in my experience...or at least as much as P PD's.

Some C Lines have as much dome as S Lines, and some have more, so glide is all over the place. The good CFR's are the only true flat, glideless C Lines.

It would also help to know how far you throw, and what you want the disc to do that your current discs don't do. PD's are great for so many people, but not for all.

Sounds like you are looking at the right disc. Look for an S Line with not too much dome, and you can't go wrong.

Third run C-Lines start off with a bit of turn and a nice fade, very Eagle-like in flight, highly workable.

In any case, the PD is still as great as ever. It's molded by Innova so it's not nor has it ever been a particularly consistent mold, but I haven't found a single one I didn't like. I could easily fill pretty much all of my driver slots with PDs, and in the past I have done just that.

What is a good max distance driver that complements the PD?

In what way do you want it to complement the PD? For me almost any warp speed driver complements the PD in that they're faster and longer. Do you want the disc to fly on a similar line to the PD but longer, or do something significantly different to the PD?

Anyway, personally I prefer the LEGENDa for all out max D but I have to factor in the turn of the disc, and for situations where I can't really trust that one (gusty winds for example) or don't want the lateral movement I tend to go with the Sword.

I ordered a Trespass. I'm going to test it out and go from there.

A good choice, and one I immediately thought about. Seems to work nicely for Turso, not too understable nor overstable.
