Appreciation everyone's input. I'm going to order 2 of them from DD. I know they may weight 1-3 grams over the legal PDGA weight for a Drone but I'm willing to take the risk of a TD weighing my disk randomly. Integrity is a big part of my game. I often call myself out on foot-faults but a few grams overweight is not something I really think disrespects the game.

If integrity really mattered, you'd buy a Drone in a different plastic so you'd not be over the legal limit. The FLX Drone is plenty beefy, and is carried by most major retailers.

True. I just don't like FLX plastic that much. Love Z just like I love Champion plastic. Why doesn't Discraft make Z Drone on the regular?

From what i've read, it is due to the shape of the lip. It takes too much material to make, and thus they are overweight. Back when the drone was first released there was a lot of talk about it never being made in z plastic, because there was no way to make it within weight.

I do love the fact that you just pick and choose which rules to follow. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy about players following rules.

Drones are legal to 178.5g. and DD just weighed 20-25 of them for me, and none are under 180. I sent 3 back to them, 180.2, 180.0 and 182.

How durable is that FLX plastic? Is it comparable to Innova Star or even the softer Z plastic used for the Z Hornet? Durability is key for me. I am confronted with a lot of trees where I play.

In Drones, the FLX plastic feels likes standard ESP, and has the durability to go with it.

I'm hoping the FLX is good. I am not a fan of floppy plastic, (one reason i LOVED the Z Drones) but i'm looking to get some FLX, waiting to see if DD is getting any more in.

If you want a floppy drone, find a CryZtal FLX. The ESP FLX is plenty firm even in Summer. I've had one in my bag for over a year and throw a lot of FH rollers with it and it's still... stabl...oversta... uh..don't want to get into a semantics fight with anyone..so:

Drone go left.
