Those of you who have been following this blog might already know how close to our hearts spreading the joy of disc golf is to us. We’ve been to emerging disc golf nations like Czech Republic, Australia, Brazil and Taiwan among many others promoting the sport of disc golf to the people. Latest country on our list is Russia, as we’re supporting the Russian Disc Golf Championships by putting out a set of blazing hot Discmania collectibles with the show-stopping artwork by disc golf artist Skeet Scienski.
The featured discs are long-awaited Discmania FD’s (Jackal) with 3 types of material: The first run S-line, first run C-line and a special set of clear first run C-line. Also featured is the recently announced S-line PD2 (Chaos) and a special batch of 2nd run C-line DD2‘s. The profits from these discs go directly to the Russian Disc Golf Championships, so stocking up with these collectible gems also benefits the growth of disc golf!
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)
