Don't think the MD1 is discontinued. The SG line was.

That sucks! sg line feels and throws awesome! It must have not been working for their other discs... or was just too similar to s

The S released cleanly is slightly more HSS and a fair bit more LSS enough so that the role might change a little. S MD1 is not a point and shoot laser tunnel disc like the SG MD1. I vastly prefer the SG over the other MD1s but it is also the most Buzz like of the MD1s which means that are normally available (the way jubuttib describes the gummy flat C MD 1 sounds it is even more so) which means that the hard plastic thinner Axes and breaking in an Obex or in calm conditions Ibex (less HSS) compete too. Grip tackiness wise only the FLX Buzz competes because x link is slicker even after removing the lube and softs are weird in that they are not tacky but at least they are unusable for power throwers :-) Meaning the SG is a pretty damn special disc. Pair that to a new FLX Buzz and you cover a lot of different lines in all conditions. Of course monster headwinds need beefier mids or powered down drivers so the slicker Gator or the well gripping FLX Drone help there.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Anyone know why they discontinued the SG line? Was it a supplier issue?

Slightly off topic, I purchased a C-Line PD from Marshall Street and I ended up with a plus rim. Does the plus rim affect flight or is it more of a grip issue?

The S-Line PD that I lost seemed like it had a totally different rim. It had shorter depth and was slightly more narrow. I am beginning to think it was a CD with the wrong stamp.

I always thought of S as Star, and SG as a grippy (sliightly softer) star like plastic.

So, finally got a PP2, and I really want to like it, but it's a little on the hard side for my liking.

Is there such thing as a softer PP2? Or am I really gonna just have to bts out of it?

Protos were harder like the hardest KCs. So bang it up.

Discmania needs a neutral/understable mid like the comet or fuse

MD2 in some stage of wear in S could fit the bill perhaps. Just slower and shorter by a bit.

I haven't thrown any pro ones, but I have seen some d P2s that are pretty darn soft and grippy.

thanks for you reply, and thank you JR as well...


DP2s are my joint. I have a whole mess of them.
Have a couple 1st run DP2 that are so buttery I could grease a pan with them.
I was hoping the P-Line version would be a little softer, so I could stop throwing the D's off the Tee, but these are a little to firm/slick for my taste so far.
I guess what I really want are some JK P2s...

Just asked DiscMania on FB about the chance of a stable/understable mid like the fuse and this is what i got as a response

" There will be some new stuff happening in our midrange line up, but we'll inform more about it later ;)"
