Discmania C-Line CD1

Discmania C-Line CD1 Control Driver

Flight Ratings

 Speed: 9 | Glide: 5 | Turn: -1 | Fade: 2

 

The CD1, formerly known as the CD2, has been reinvented and brought back in Discmania‚Äôs new and improved C-Line plastic. ‚ÄúCD‚ÄĚ stands for Control Driver and that is how to describe this disc; Control.

 

The CD1 one is a useful, slightly overstable driver for beginners, and for more advanced players will provide the control they need for their distance shots. If you are a forehand dominant player then no need to worry, it performs well however you throw it.

 

Discmania describes their CD1 as a longer FD or a well-seasoned PD having the right amount of glide and shot shaping options but will always maintain enough stability to end with a smooth low speed fade in the end.

 

The new C-Line plastic from Discmania is super durable and is probably the most beautiful clear plastic from any manufacturer. Here’s what Eagle says about the CD1:

 

‚ÄúThe CD1 is great for all different skill-levels and it feels incredibly comfortable in the hand. This disc is one of the best teachers for a forehand as well. It is very symmetrical and has a really good amount of torque resistance, so you‚Äôre able to throw it pretty hard and you get these really straight lines with very soft finishes.‚ÄĚ

 

Release date: May 3rd at 11am EST
