The local shop had one that they let me put the calipers on this past weekend. Rim width was ~.735”ish. Same as a Vulture/Predator, little more than a Tracker/Undertaker(~.710”ish) and a little less than a Firebird(~.750”).

If anyone’s curious or finds that sort of thing interesting...

a z one would probably fit right between the two honestly. I stopped throwing the tracker since its oop personally. But this Z is a nice workable overstable. I Use 3 raptors currently, a z glo, a z and a ESP. esp is the leas stable, basically a overstable vulture imo. the z glo i have bagged for a while and use it for a variety of shots including thumbers so its a bit worked it. the z i use for headwinds or if i need big skips

I keep telling myself that the Predator in ESP FLX plastic is my economical version of a sexybird. It works for me at least with a ton of flex before the over stable finish.

My 173-174 stickered First Run Zs are beefy. More overstable than the Z Predators in my bag but shorter.

Default Raptor vs. Reaper

I have not seen a Raptor. How does it compare to Discraft's original Z Reaper?

I always liked the feel of the Reaper. The temporary Big Z type version a couple years ago was nothing like the Z Reaper and had a totally different feel in the wing.

I bought a pearly white first run Z to try out. To be continued.

So my light blue FR Z is basically a DC FB with a more comfy rim and a but less LSS. It even worked as a FH roller for me. The foil on my disc is pink, dark red, and silver which I've never seen before.
