As is mine (the super beefy part, EO C-PD2), but I'm getting the distinct impression it's short because it just doesn't have any glide. My Stilettos are easily as or more overstable, but they go a lot farther because they have plenty of glide.

I saw jori hätinen throw piippos stiletto and there was good glide but he has a lot of oomph. The c fd is not glideless as long as it goes fast but it will slow down fairly soon and start the fade and drop earlier than any kind of s fd. So it depends on who is throwing.
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.

Tried my friends blizzard line DD2, flipped over like crazy, felt much like blizzard destroyer. Thinking about moving to heavier discs...

Blizzards vary a lot in some molds. Dd2 is flippy my early destro is more overstable than normal max weights at 134! Quasars vary from less flippy but still flippy to great distance hyzer flipper so a high plh one might work for you. Longevity could be a problem because the stability changes a lot with minor plh differences and tuning is touchy.

Yeah, it's not the weight itself that causes the flippyness, it's the fact they tend to mold up with a different shape. If you can find a high PLH blizzard disc there's no reason why it can't be overstable.

I throw two Discmania discs, both I've picked up in the last year. I rarely replace any discs in my bag unless they get to beat in & I add a new one (I like to cycle). I like to spend a lot of time doing field work with discs when I get them. I compare them to the current discs I carry for that slot in my bag to see how the new disc compares to what I'm currently using. I got a C PD & I only had to throw it a few times & it was clear to me that it was a better disc than my Champ Orc. I mostly threw my Orc for sidearm shots & occasional backhand shots that needed to fly farther than my Teebirds but shorter than my Destroyers. I could tell the PD had more glide & it just felt better in my hand than the Orc. This is the first time in a a few years since a new disc I was trting kicked another mold out of my bag so quickly. I also have a C PD2 which I really enjoy throwing also, it replaced my Champ XCal. I'm very glad I started trying Discmaina molds that I ever tried before. In the past I've used a S CD which was okay but it couldn't compete with my other discs, I don't think the PD or PD2 is coming out of my bag for a long time (if ever) & I'd highly recommend people try them. I've heard a lot of good things about the P2 & I'm looking for a new stable driving putter so I'm gonna pick one up & see how it flies.

How is the inside rim-angle on C-MD3. 90 degrees, or more?

The disc is incredibly similar to the MD2 anyway, so it's a slight +mold like all MD2s are.

Anyone care to speculate what are the new things for DM for 2014? Some hints here: https://twitter.com/JussiMeresmaa

I think they could use a really overstable midrange or fairway. Or continue with glidey discs like FD and TD2. "PD3", a 11-speed stable yet glidey disc could be nice.

I got a feeling it is beyond discs. I do recall Jussi and Mark mentioning Discmania aimed to take a bigger look at the US in the future. This may be part of it.

Yeah I was going to write "besides expanding in the US" and I know they are also expanding the DiscGolfPark model in Germany etc. (although thats more Innova Europe business than Discmania, but Jussi is the connecting person).

Hard to imagine they would not relase any new models for 2014, though. Any thoughts on that, what are they missing in their lineup? Of course there can be only a certain amount of discs when you look at the different characteristics and combine them... no what am I saying look at Innova, nevermind

They do need an overstable mid (MD3 ain't it, even though I hoped very hard), they also need FD2, a disc that flies like the 2nd run C-FD does, meaning a neutral to slightly overstable fairway driver. Stable glidey 11 speed kinda sounds like a domey DD to me if I'm honest. Very under appreciated disc that one.

I would like a less beefy PD2. Jussi mentioned he was going to fix the issue with the MD3.

Did you talk to Jussi too? I'm looking forward to this.

I'm wondering that were do I need the great FD when I could have P-PD, S-PD and a C-PD covering all my driver needs. Or would they.
