The Z Surge I picked up is useless as a distance driver for me. Flies a lot more like an overstable C-PD, straight into the wind with a hefty fade. I'll be sticking with hurricanes because if I...

Haven't thrown a wraith in a decade or more...does Discraft or DGA make a wraith? Seems like the Surge would be just fine for me, if I just don't stick with the Hurricane.

Never thrown a Drift so I can't tell you. It's kind of in between a stock z Undertaker, and a SP Pipeline. But seems to have more distance potential than both, YMMV

unless people just haven't been paying attention, discraft has been doing 'halo' swirls for quite a while now - basically since the ESP blend was updated a couple years ago. I even have a couple of...

KJ's shot was amazing but gets docked points from me for not being a tournament shot.

Philo's albatross, or Feldberg's Maple Hill ace, are the 2 best shots I've ever seen on camera.

Idk, I think if your forehand is good enough you can shape a lot of short shots that are harder to execute when thrown backhand. Of course, this is just my experience - and I do have the ability to...

I struggle with the same thing, but more in the 90-150 range. I mask all of these issues by relying on my forehand upshot game.

undertakers will tend to have a bit more turn and fade. stalkers are straighter overall, but don't go as far. YMMV.

It's kind of inverse for me - I'm using comets on every shot that I can. My aftershock is the utility disc where I need that hard line drive midrange shot.
