My question to you is; How far are you throwing for distance. For me I throw between 375-425. The Z Crank is my most stable, dependable driver and ESP is a bit flippy and more for max distance. Neither have completely flipped and tanked on me and have always been dependable.

If the guys who throw harder aren't flipping theirs over, could this be more of a form issue?

^^^ I agree with the above and I am not claiming to have perfect form but have realized that, when selecting molds, you have to consider someone’s preferred release angle. I prefer to release on a slight(8:15) hyzer and find the Z crank to be great for me out to 375+. If I were to release flat(9:00) with the same form & disc, I may find it too understable.

I will admit too that I don't have perfect form either, but that's always something I'm working on.

If I'm wanting distance with the Crank, it's a high shot with just a touch of anny(ESP or Z) or flat depending on the disc (Zflex or Big Z). (400')

If I'm wanting straight line, slight hyzer. (ESP at full power, ZFlex at 75%) (375')

If I'm wanting a long sweeping anny, very high anny release (ESP or Z) or slightly higher flat shot (Zflex or Big Z). (350-370')

Never thrown a Pro-D or X.

I never expect a Crank to fade. I either expect it to fall straight down or turn enough that it catches a slight edge and rolls back to center.

This is fast smooth disc, not a power disc. I pair it with a Punisher for power shots.

That’s about the exact distances I throw my ESP Crank as well. Can touch 450’ if I get it 100% right. It (is) on the flippy side but then again it is a 171g. I used to throw BIGZ cranks and they held stronger for sure.

How do they hold up stability wise?
