They should be scattered. Most of those turkeys are not throwing Destroyers at their intended potential. If they've moved onto Zueses than blah. They should be throwing Thunderbirds or Predators instead.

Or realistically Comets and Leopards.

A little bird told me there might just be a small custom run of swirly ESP Surges coming this year. No idea when, but I'm buying 20.

I will too, but hopefully they won’t be like the Ledgestone run.

I don't know if these were the ones you mentioned, but Infinite has 75 pretty ESP Surges, all in that 170g and heavier range. They may have dropped a while ago, but I missed them.

It seems like Infinite orders these runs often. They hooked me with the ESP Banger GT at some point, and a Luster Champ Leopard3 another time. Does anyone know if there's rhyme or reason to this? Is someone at Infinite just trying to benefit off of our desire for an ESP Surge?

Yeah, these were what I was talking about. I bought 10 right when they came out. They fly real nice. Teals and yellows are the least stable but ymmv.

Discraft will run you just about anything you want if you order 500+ of them. Don't know about any other manufacturers limits on customs runs or if they do it at all.

You're making me curious. How far do you throw them. Do you mean they're relatively flippy Surges, or that it's a good amount of turn?

I generally like beefy Surges, but certainly wouldn't want to sacrifice the glide and awesome forward fade.

Golf lines are 360ish. These new run Surges fly just like the Surge of yore. Little hyzer, flat then a touch of turn and a forward fade. If you prefer "overstable" Surges, look for the pink/red ones. Those are the most stable in my testing.

The Surge is so underrated. I bag one just like you describe here. A hard throw will turn it over, but usually in a controlled manner. I find the Surge to work well for fairly long drives that I want to gradually bend right and stay there. No harsh late fade.

If I really get into a Surge I can touch 400' with it. I've always preferred Surges to Wraiths. They're very slightly less stable than Wraiths, and seem to have more glide. Wraiths definitely work better when want more late fade though.

I leaning back in the direction of throwing surges again this year. Got some practice in this weekend, and wide rimmed discs just felt weird. TBD when stay at home order is lifted and courses open back up. I used the surge a lot years ago
