Reinvent. Your. Game. Yes it is the Discmania motto, but now it fits better than ever. Discmania presents the retooled S-Line FD2. In the past, it has been the middle child of Discmania’s Fairway Driver lineup. Now, it is ready to be the star.
It is much different than the old FD2. This S-line FD2 is flat and stable. It no longer has an significant dome, but rather, a flat top that gives players confidence for a precise release. Unlike the original, this new disc will be released in the S-Line plastic. This will be the first time any version of the FD2 will see a wide release in a different plastic than C-line.
This is a prototype run and likely will not be the final production run of this disc. We may do some more tweaks to the mold to get it to where we want it to be.
The retooled S-line FD2 will be perfect for head winds, forehands, and thumbers. Like previously stated, it is slightly more stable than the older version so players can expect this mold to be a workhorse for them. Big arms will be able to get the disc to flex just slightly, while slower arm speeds can expect a reliable fade in any conditions.
Josh's Field Work -- The FD2 is exactly what it claims to be. A reliably stable fairway driver. When thrown at 80% speed, this disc won't flip and finishes reliably and strong in the hyzer. It will even reliably fight into mild headwinds. Discmania describes it as 'not too glidey' and I agree. When compared to other stable, slow fairway drivers like the Teebird or Rival, the overstable component of the FD2 definitely kicks in just a hair quicker than the Teebird or Rival and gives the FD2 a little more 'get to ground' quality without getting into the overstable dump truck neighborhood of the XXX, Firebird or Felon. On a firm throw, the FD2 comes up reliably about 10-20 feet short of the Teebird. If you like the feel of the TeeBird but crave just a little more overstability. Try an FD2 (note - most of my field work is done around 5280 feet of altitude. Expect less stability at lower altitudes)
