So...whats the chance of the Banzia being a fill in for the Ace Race Version of the Mantis? The numbers look like it might be a bit too OS, but close

I just finished my first round with my new Banzai, and I really like it.

It's a nice pearly Proline blend with a smooth flight plate. My guess is it's a Pipeline with a microbead integrated into the rim edge to create a steeper, taller lower wing. I didn't notice the bead or have any release issues.

It flies really straight with a predictable forward fade. Easy to flick straight with a muted forward skip. Zero turn at high speed, and it gently fought out of flexes. From a hyzer, it maintains the angle with little to no flip. It doesn't hook up too fast, so it has an easy to range and control fade when powered down.

It's like a mellow Tsunami or a beefy Teebird, so like if a Tsunami and a Teebird had a baby. Very Banshee-ish.

Since the Pipeline was quick to lose high speed stability, I'm very eager to see how it seasons. My guess is it will be a much straighter, easier to control fairway driver that performs better in the wind than a Pipeline and powers down better than a Tsunami. I'll be throwing it alot over the next several rounds, and I'll be sure to report how it changes as I beat it up.

This is what I am wondering too.

My buddy just picked up a few and said it was similar to a Thunderbird, but with a lil more turn, he said he'd rate it 8/4/-0.5/2 - disc has a micro bead - he said it wasn't the most comfortable, but not bad - overall a more stable pipeline I suppose. so that's cool, could be a workhorse control driver for a lot of ppl. ill try it out next time I see him

I got a few rounds in with this disc. It is a slightly slower thunderbird or a stable teebird/rival. I don't believe that it has a 1.9 rim. I'd rate it 8/5/0/2. Nice disc, just wish it was slightly faster and more OS. Overall solid release

You're wishing for a Tsunami

Yup. ProLine Tsunami is more OS, Vulture is more OS and faster, and some Undertakers are more OS. Plenty of good options.

I will give this disc as a try, with time....if nothing more, just for the name.

I was interested in this disc to maybe replace my beat in Ti Ace Race Mantis. A local is moving and has his extras up for sale. I picked up 2 unthrown Ace Race Manti for replacements from him.

I am still interested in how similar they fly to Ace Race Manti.
