I have a lot of different big-z versions... My big z heat is like a waxy almost jawbreaker blend, my big z nuke feels a lot like innova pro, my heavier (173)thrasher feels like an opaque z, my lighter (165) thrasher has bubbles in the rim like you see on z-lite or blizzard, but only slightly. And I have an esp thrasher that feels identical in hand to that lighter one.
The grip on all of my big z discs are better (exception my 173 thrasher) than z, slightly worse than titanium

My only titanium discs are the AR mantis discs from 2013, the grip on them is great, I just hate the color. As for Z, grip is like clutching a wet ice cube. My titanium mantis grip feels a lot like the grip I get on an esp crank I picked up a few years ago. I take it your experience with the plastic is quite negative?

Ti color choices blow goats. I can’t tell the difference in hand between Ti and ESP. Z ( older Z anyway) is fine if it’s warm out.

Current run of Ti is grippy without being overly flexible. Love my Ti Sting.

Correct.

I've felt say, 25 in my life and only a reddish pink hued Zone felt utterly amazing. The rest were slick and just....disappointing? I don't know. Different strokes and QC I suppose.

I have 3 AR Mantis.. Manti.. whatever. All are very hard to hold on to... but fly awesome. I switched out to the Banzai due to the lack of grip on them.
Both my 2015 Ledgestone Ti Comet and my Ti Sting are very grippy and I love both.
