For the first episode of Deep in the Game -series we had a sticker spotting competition with some exclusive plastic as prizes. The contest is now over, so it’s time to announce the winners: Jenny H. C., Travis S. and Antti K. The winners have been contacted privately and the prize discs will be shipped their way once we have all the needed addresses.
So where was it?
We have to admit that the sticker was not too easy to spot. Despite this, we got just under 300 answers and about 80% of them were correct. The correct answer was of course 1:04-1:06 at the right hand corner of the LaMirada sign. See below:
Here's the correct answer. Click to enlarge.
Thanks for everyone who took submitted answers! Now go watch Episode 2 – Backhand (just released!) and work with your form!
REINVENT YOUR GAME
There has been a lot of speculation if and when there will be Blizzard C-line release for our high-speed models. If you’re not familiar with the Blizzard technology, it’s the newest breakthrough in Disc Golf equipment by definitely the main contributor of the sport, Innova Champion Discs. The Blizzard discs utilize small micro bubbles in the rim of the disc allowing the high speed drivers to be manufactured in lighter weights than ever before.
The success of the Blizzard discs is basic physics: a lighter projectile is easier to throw far than the heavy discs most disc golfers are used to. The best part about the Blizzard technology is that despite the Blizzard discs are lighter than regular discs, they imitate the flight pattern of the heavier discs really well: For example a 150+ gram Blizzard C-line DD2 acts very similar to a 170 gram C-line DD2.
What is specifically interesting about the upcoming C-line Blizzard release is that our Blizzard models will be available in “tournament ready” weight ranges that go up to high 160′s. These higher-weight Blizzard models will specifically accomodate the distance needs of those players, who have felt the Innova’s Blizzard line-up too light and/or understable. DD2 & PD2 will be the two models that will be released Blizzard C-line in the near future. The advantage of having these two models available in lighter weight is that more players will be able to play with the fastest drivers in our selection and for the big arms there’s more distance to be gained with these two models.
Factory 2nd Blizzard C-line DD2 & PD2 available @ Innova Factory Store
There’s a limited quantity of Discmania Blizzards at the Innova Factory store. These “Factory 2nd” discs are cosmetically flawed discs that did not meet our quality standards for regular production. The flaws do not effect flight characteristics or durability of the disc. With the discounted price of 11 USD the supplies won’t last long, so go grab yours while you still can!
Did you know:
Innova’s Blizzard Champion plastic is responsible for a new world record in Distance. 16-year-old David Wiggins Jr. broke Christian Sandström’s old record from ten years back with 255-meter throw with a 134-gram Blizzard Champion Boss. More info on the new WR over at Innova’s blog.
Team Discmania's Seppo Paju lining up for a sidearm shot w/ the new S-PD2
We know you’ve been waiting for this! The PD2 in it’s pre-existing forms (P-line & C-line*) have gathered a strong following of Disc Golfers that appreciate its take-no-prisoners flight pattern. We’re extremely happy with the way the S-PD2 turned out: this configuration has been described even beefier than the C-line version and it definitely has the speed to match. The S-line plastic is grippy and very durable – we guarantee this bad boy won’t flip after a couple of collisions.
As a limited run release for the Russian Championships, the PD2 has already found it’s way to the bags of some of the most skilled players of this game. During the Memorial Championships the S-PD2 was seen in action in the hands of Nikko Locastro, Avery Jenkins, Jussi Meresmaa and Seppo Paju to name a few. So if the top names of disc golf rely on this disc when they need to keep their shots out the trouble, why wouldn’t you?
One disc, two stamps
S-PD2 will come out with two separate stamps
The S-PD2 will be released with two different artworks: The Chaos -stamp in the US and as the Seppo Paju signature edition in Europe. A certain percent of each sold signature S-PD2′s will go to cover Seppo’s touring expenses this year. So by buying the Seppo S-PD2, you also support Seppo’s career. Sweet deal!
DISClaimer: The PD2 is not for the faint of heart. This disc is extremely stable and fast and best used in the hands of players with lots of power. A-we-some for sidearm players.
*(The unfortunately the C-line PD2 was discontinued earlier this year. More info here.)
