Tends to pop off if the beverage is carbonated and is shaken too much. I tried to remedy the issue by drilling a small hole but that only emits a fine mist of said beverage all over your bag and yourself.

I ran an ace race this last weekend but didn't play. I did throw one a couple times in the field and it was an interesting straight flier. Not very under stable like I expected.

They made a limited run of Z Hawks.
Glideless, pointless, useless...hopefully these will be better.

I'm not familiar with the plastic but It was either the pro or star plastic. Kind of in between. We couldn't figure it out.

I played an ace race this past weekend. I thought the Hawk flew well. I never gave it a full power throw so keep that in mind. It had decent glide and at the end of the flight it hooked up rather quickly. It would hold the line you put it on. In the wind it turned over a bit but it didn't crash and burn.
I was able to click with it right away and I had success throwing it like a putter on a few of the shorter holes. I played a casual round right after the ace race and never thought about grabbing it out of the bag once. Didn't make my bag so I gave them to my 11 year old daughter and 9 year old son to use and they both got good flights out of them.

I ran and played an Ace Race this past weekend. I didn't like the new ESP Hawk at all. I hate tall discs, I hate domey discs, and I hate concave jaw discs, so I knew it wasn't going to work for me. The Hawk flew straight enough, but was extremely uncomfortable in the hand.

Colors provided were lame we got green, mint green, sky blue, and black.

Got to see a buddy of mine throw a 230' Ace with it. Was an unmodified hole, longest at this Ace Race, and had a $100 Ace payout. He's now a huge fan of the Hawk.
