This is the DD1, our answer to controlled distance for the masses.
The DD1 is cited to be DD3’s little brother, the DD1 features a less overstable and more narrow flight path compared to our most popular distance driver, the DD3.
DD1 is famous for its straight and accurate flight, makes it a great tool in the woods. Players will fall in love with the DD1 feel and profile, plus a smaller rim compared to DD3 gives you that extra confidence when facing the tight fairway and nice dome gives you the optimal amount of glide to still get big distance.
The DD1 is a great choice to build your distance game, as its high glide, narrow flight path and comfortable grip ensures it’s the one disc you’ll reach for over and over again.
Good for: Straight distance shots, long anhyzers, long hyzers, sidearm shots, advanced and pro players alike.
Release: Wed. May 3rd
Sleeve: 32, Box: 64
CD1 handles just about any wind condition with ease but is most well suited for tailwinds and calmer weather. Players will notice that the CD1 has the tendency to fly similarly to a well seasoned PD, giving you 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. If you only had one disc to play a round with, this disc would be an excellent choice. Good for: Backhand, forehand, tailwind, calm weather, amateur distance driver, expert fairway/distance driver, sneaky sneaky bombs

More about Mutant:
When the wind picks up, you need a disc you can trust. The Mutant laughs at danger and always performs predictably, thanks to its immense overstability.
The Mutant is a truly unique midrange. It's been coined the "cybertruck" of midranges. The design principle for this mold was to create a disc with no round surfaces. It is an extremely overstable midrange with low glide that can handle even the toughest of headwinds. Great for both backhand & sidearm shots and situations where you need extreme dependability.
As the game evolves, so do the tools we use to hone our craft. The Mutant is a product of our passion to keep reinventing the game.
This is the FD1, our most complete Originals fairway driver - Reinvented.
The FD1 is a brand new disc to our Originals disc line and it’s designed to fill the gap between our two icons FD and FD3. Stable flight with dependable fade in the end is a true combo for accuracy when you want to hit the fairways. It will have some similarities to that of a C-line FD when you pick it up but the glide has been stepped down a notch and low speed fade added as well to add more stability for windy situations and accuracy.
Players will fall in love with the FD1 relatively flat profile and smooth release on backhand and sidearm shots. FD1 has a very high tolerance for speed and torque, meaning it can be thrown hard and is able to push forward on a straight and consistent flight path while finishing with a soft bite at the end. It’s got enough over stability to handle plenty of wind, forced turnover shots, and a wide variety of powerful shot shaping angles while maintaining a more throwable feel like a less stable disc normally would. You can rely on it to get you out of trouble, navigate tricky fairways, and conquer all conditions on any given day.
Good for:Straight fairway shots, Hyzer shots, flex shots, sidearm shots, windy days, advanced and pro players alike.
Discmania Open Fundraiser Lumen Enigma
Plastic: Lumen (glow)
Lumen plastic adds some specialty glow to your favorite Evolution Line distance driver. You can expect the grip of this plastic to be just as good as our traditional Neo, but will glow in the dark when exposed to natural or artificial light.The Enigma helps players reach incredible distances with a flight pattern designed to carry easily as it soars down the fairway. Molded to combine a high speed turn with a long distance fade, both experienced players and relatively new players will be able to utilize the Enigma to its fullest potential. The Enigma glides with turn at the start of its flight while its stability gradually takes over, keeping the disc airborne as it transitions into a fade for the finish of the flight. This level of understability to stability allows players to hit any number of lines depending on the angle of release. Use the Enigma for hyzers or anhyzers and add new distances to any shot in your bag.
