Appreciate the info. Been considering checking out the Banzai since I used to love throwing Eagles. I think I'm far too invested in undertakers though

FWIW, I bag a Proline Banzai and a BigZ Undertaker and don't really find any overlap. The Banzai doesn't have as much distance potential but for headwinds or harder finishes it comes out instead of the Undertaker

I'm thinking they'd overlap more with my beat predators than undertakers. What you describe is exactly what I use the beat preds for. But in my bag, there's not really any room between preds and 'takers so I'd likely have to make a choice to keep my lineup simple.

While I have never thrown a 1.1 MOLF, I will say that the Banzai probably fits in between an OLF and Eagle in terms of distance. Honestly, I was throwing the Banzai as far as my seasoned OLFs. It has sneaky distance.If I were to make a comparison, I would liken the Banzai to a slightly shorter premium plastic P-PD.

Overall, the Banzai is a versatile disc that flies like a faster fairway when thrown with power.

I picked up a first flight Banzai a few weeks ago. The Banzai is more overstable than I thought it would be. The flight is nice, the fade starts early but it's a long fade. If I put in time with the Banzai I think it would work out but I have a lot of Thunderbirds that I have trust in.
The Banzai wants a little more power than I have.

What weight is your Banzai? I have thrown a lighter weight and it goes straight and far before hyzering out.

174 on my scale.
It feels like it's really close to having a full flight. Maybe this Banzai needs to be broken in a little for my power or maybe a little lighter in weight.
The two champ thunderbirds I carry are 169 and 170, both seasoned.
The only way I can hit 400' these days is with a big flex shot throwing a high 160's star shryke or a gstar Destroyer.

I've been playing a lot lately on a heavily wooded course. The Banzai is really working for me now. It still has its hss but the fade is kicking in later. The Banzai is pairing well with my titanium and z Undertakers.

InBounds flight guide shows the Banzai is closer to a Teebird3 than a Predator
