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!
Unfortunately we have to start out with some bad news: Innova has stated it is no longer able to mold* our speed-12 meathook driver PD2 (Chaos) in it’s stable and durable C-line configuration. The reason for discontinuing the popular model is that the mold takes a lot of the material in the wings, making the top thin enough to allow dents. This causes a lot of warped discs and keeping it in production just isn’t worth the trouble, since the amount of generated trash plastic is too big.
Now we know there’s a lot of big arms out there who enjoy the beefy, take-no-prisoners flight pattern of the C-PD2. The good news is that P-PD2 will stay in production. Even more good news is that we are announcing PD2 in popular S-line to replace the now out-of-production C-PD2. The S-PD2 will be available with the Chaos -stamp in the U.S. & Asia & Australia and with special Seppo Paju signature stamp in Europe. Some of these signature S-PD2′s will also be available in the Flymart at Memorial Championships, so be sure to check those out!
There’s also fair amount C-PD2′s still around, so you should still have plenty of time to stock up on the Chaos in C-line. Check our retailers for availability. If you weren’t familiar with the C-PD2 until this point, we recommend you snatch yourself one or two: with the durable C-line material these discs wear slowly and stay beefy for ages. With added future collectible value these discs are solid investments for those windy days ;)
*(In case you didn’t know: Our discs are manufactured by Innova Champion Discs in California, USA)
Finally! A very prominent Disc Golf promoter by the name of Kuan Chen just posted good news to our facebook wall informing that the very last one of our Hidden Gems was found by Mr. Ham Bao Wu From Taipei, Taiwan. If you weren’t familiar with this whole Hidden Gems -ordeal go grab the facts from the Hidden Gems -page.
Now we’ve heard that some of you guys were offended because the burglary-story was made up. We are truly sorry if someone is still sullen about it. The fact of the matter is that we felt like the Disc Golf scene was in desperate need of a little shaking up and the campaign as a whole felt like the best way to make some waves. Of course it’s also about selling some plastic, but that’s definitely not the only reason we did it.
For us doing something different is a way of pushing the sport forward. By doing cool things, the sport itself gains credibility and may even introduce a couple of fresh faces to the sport of Disc Golf. Judging by the feedback we’ve received, this certainly was a breath of fresh air and it pushes other disc manufacturers to do cool things too. I mean just look at the new Innova clip:
That’s gangster. And we certainly respect that.
That’s all for this time. The C-line is out and we highly recommend you give it try. We are extremely happy the about the way it turned out. And we do have a trick or two up our sleeves for the future too… Subscribe to our blog and / or like us on facebook to be among the first to know about the next big thing ;D
