In our seemingly continuos stream of good news, there’s more good news! Our most sold driver model to date, the FD Jackal, will soon finally be available in super durable C-line plastic. The feedback on the FD has been phenomenal and it has broken all sales records in Europe, making it Europe’s most sold disc model of the year. That’s right! And you thought this was the year of the Blizzard. Nope. This is the year of the FD!
The FD in C-line is arguably more stable than it’s S- & D-line versions. For those who’ve loved the S-FD for it’s tremendous glide and straightforward flight path, the C-line version offers more reliability with a milder high speed turn and added low speed fade. What’s great about the C-line version is that while S- & D-FD’s have been too flippy for some power throwers, the C-line version resists power a lot better. Essentially this disc is almost an extended midrange disc – It flies predictably and controllably like a midrange but thanks to it’s tremendous glide it just keeps going and going.
The international release date is set to Monday, the 8th of October but depending on your region, it may take some more time before they are available at your local Discmania retailer. We are really psyched about this disc, hopefully you are too! We believe the FD in it’s different plastic blends is a disc model basically everyone can better their game with. We’ve seen this in action ourselves and heard the feedback from the field, this truly is the year of the FD!
-REINVENT YOUR GAME
As some of you already guessed, just like with the first episode, we’ve hidden a Discmania sticker somewhere in the Backhand episode too for you to spot. Spotting the sticker may just pay off well, since we’re once again dealing out sweet Deep in the Game -stamped discs to three lucky persons with the right answer to our competition question:
At which time is the Discmania sticker visible in the video?
(Extra points for those who also point out the location of the sticker)
For the Backhand episode we’ve reserved 3 exclusive first run C-line FD’s, one for each lucky winner. One of the three key points of the episode is featured on each disc, hand written by Avery Jenkins himself. As you may already know, these discs are not yet available as a “stock” release, so here’s a chance to grab yourself a sweet pre-release C-FD that is not available anywhere else.
All you need to do to make yourself eligible to win is to spot the sticker in the episode and submit us the time when the sticker is visible. All answers must be send as messages to our Deep in the Game facebook -page.
To participate in the contest, you must send us a facebook message via the Discmania Deep in the Game -facebook page. (Click to enlarge.)
Please note: The sticker is visible for a short time and it’s not necessarily easy to spot. There are logos similar to the sticker visible in the episode in the clothes of Jussi & Avery, but they’re not the one you should be looking for. Additionally there is a sticker on the lawn when the 3 keypoints of putting are shown in the episode, but the winning sticker is visible somewhere else on another timeframe. The one you should be looking for is much harder to spot than that ;)
1. Everyone with a facebook account are eligible to participate.
2. The three (3) winners for this episode will be randomly selected from the group of correct answers. All winners will be contacted personally (by a reply to the facebook-message), but we do reserve the right to publish the names of the winners.
3. The competition closes when Episode 3 airs and the winners will be announced on Tuesday, May 15th.
4. The prizes will be shipped to the addresses provided by the winners.
Once again, Happy hunting folks!
The day you’ve been waiting for is upon us! We’re finally pushing the much-anticipated Discmania FD out the door and to the retailers. The international release date has been set to March 12th, but most of our retailers will probably receive these with a delay of a couple of days.
The FD has been the most anticipated release from us in terms of new molds in the last couple of years. FD, short for Fairway Driver, will serve as the first true Fairway Driver in our line-up. Number one reason for us to develop a Fairway Driver was public demand – we’ve been flooded with requests for a disc like this for a good while now. Additionally we’re pretty happy with our current high-speed line-up and the variance it offers in different plastic blends and thus felt like we really needed to put our focus in making the best possible Fairway Driver out there.
The Jackal has been described to have the flight pattern of a seasoned TeeBird*. It’s best feature is it’s predictability. Once you get the the hang of the Jackal, you’ll never leave it out of your bag again. One of the features we really enjoy is that due to it’s tremendous glide (rated at 6) it can also be sneaky long. Longest measured throw with the FD is currently at 174m / 571ft. Not bad for a Fairway Driver ;)
*(We’re well aware that comparing each new disc to a TeeBird has gotten a bit old, but if you’re in doubt, try it yourself. This one really does hold the comparison.)
