Default Discraft Surge

Hey guys,

I recently got a Surge in ESP plastic (very grippy, nice stuff). I've never thrown one or known anyone who's thrown one so I'm not sure what to expect. I won a CTP in our monthly bag tag tournament and the prize was a free club stamped disc. All the discs were Discraft and they were out of both buzzzes and comets, so I figured I'd try out a Discraft driver since all of my drivers are Innova. So, I picked out what I thought was an Avenger SS, but it turned out to be a Surge. Have any of you guys thrown Surges? What do you think of them?

They're fantastic, extremely similar in speed and stability to a wraith.

Ok, cool. I used to throw a DX Wraith a while ago, but lost it.

surge in the sig. GReat disc. Like a Wraith, but for me Surge is a touch more Understable. Very fast straight flight, comfy in the hand. they are nice.

I'll have to get out at lunch tomorrow and throw it. I really like the feel/grip of this particular run of ESP plastic, so hopefully it'll fly well too. Thanks for the input guys...

I have a sweet ESP and love it. grips great, feels good, its fast and makes nice S shapes, but its on the cusp so too much power or OAT will make it US , but lip it up and it may hyzer, just release flat and good follow through, its a great disc.

That's awesome that you got a Surge... I thought I should weigh in though I haven't thrown one in a couple years. They are a very solid disc if it's light enough or you can get enough power on it it can be laser straight and very far flying. I switched to the Surge mid tournament one time, first large windy course I'd played on and it was much better than my ESP Crush or lightweight Orc.

The front end and back end stability are fairly proportional so it's a great disc to bend an S curve with too. My only complaint was different stabilities or inconsistencies between discs, I had two that I loved and two that weren't quite the same.

the surge is a great driver the you have three high in plastic to choose from as well I like the flat z ones for fh and esp for bh. very neutral disc for a distance driver.
