It's been a few years since I've thrown an FD, but I'd say the cryztal mantis is more high speed stable and probably more fade than a new sFD at least.

The vulture is a great disc for people who don't have beat up predators! Preds are really my most trusted driver, and I've got several beat up in Z plastic so no real slot for a vulture to go in my bag.

Preds are my jam. My two longest tenured molds are the Wasp and Pred, and neither are ever leaving my bag. I've got enough Wasps to last me a lifetime, but I am still actively collecting Preds.

I personally love the ESP preds (rip), but a good seasoned Z is a thing of beauty.

the ti mantis is as stable as my undertaker. Also he might have some beat preds from his former discraft day that will fill the vulture slot.

I’ve got an S-line FD and compared to my big Z mantis, the mantis is definately more stable.

I have a red one and I've never thrown any other Focus. I need to do some more testing, but it seems decently stable.

Report back once you throw it more.

So I know that there are the videos of the Raptor being tossed around and talked about. Has there been any such leaks / teases for the Kong?

Hmmm. My experience with the big Z Mantis make me think that it's similar to a Beast. But there could definitely be very some freaks very out there and plastic type does matter.

Big Z is the least stable out of the box for the premium plastics (big Z>Z>Ti>Cryztal)

Thanks; that's very helpful.

How about ESP and Big Z? Which is less stable?
