I love that Lat does this (Glopto), and they're heroes. Discraft does it, and it's a potential disaster.

I have ESP plastic that's all over the map. Some is gummy, some is firm. That's the same mold (Surge) too. Every company's plastic changes more than we realize.

Outside of the OP, who is complaining?

I've been liking the Discraft plastic that I've seen lately. Especially some of their soft putters and such. Feels different from any that I own.

Just pointing out that there weren't any "Lat's Opto isn't always clear anymore...I'm disappointed" threads.

Not necessarily complaining, but just disappointed in the slickness of some of the discs I felt. I play in Michigan and slick discs in the winter are bad for me. Plus, being that Discraft is a Michigan brand, I am impartial to having the plastic be the same and am proud of the consistency of the plastic they have had.

Change isn't bad, it just is a bit unnerving when for the last 5 years of playing with ESP stuff it is changing now. Maybe it was just the run of discs. But, I like the grippiness of the discs before.

I've felt up gummy ESP, which could have easily been FLX. And I love the brick hard ESP discs, but you just don't know what you are going to get if ordering online. Buying in person is the only way to go.

Esp flx is very nice. I enjoy it very much. Wish the zombee came like that.

They are doing good, but there is still some variations. Original Ions had less lss and were longer drivers, not to mention textured bottoms. First run Vectors are notably more overstable than subsequent runs. Flippy Volts, Stable Volts. Green FR Axis are supposedly better than the rest, as are flat Neutron Axis. Original Shock not as stable as intended, so new Shocks exist.

I understand they are working toward creating a consistent product and they are doing a good job. Truly consistent, no. Pretty close, yes.
