Default Freaks of nature

Anyone ever run into a certain driver that is a total freak? By that I mean that it exceeds expectations so dramatically that its shocking.

Mine was a Z Surge with the thumb grip pad. I have no clue why this disc was so good, but it was. I'd say I got better distance out of it than any other Surge I've ever thrown and many of today's top drivers. It was a perfect blend of glide, dome and it didn't have too much high speed turn or late fade. This disc was a really stiff blend of Z plastic and had a big dome. Without question the best driver I've ever thrown overall. I don't have it in the bag anymore, but I still own it. I've had a couple Star Destroyers and one CFR Augusta Wraith that were close to this, but not quite like the thumb grip Surge.

Anyone else have any drivers that perform freakishly over expectations?

The one disc that blew me away was the MVP Inertia. I knew it would be good, but just how much I enjoyed that disc from day one was surprising. I never thought a disc could replace my former favorite driver (Amp), but it did.

I have a flat Z Flash that flies more like a longer predator than anything else. It will hold into almost any headwind.

Not so much as an "OMFG that flew for forever" disc, but the Discmania FD2 exceeded all expectations. It's gotta be the easiest throwing disc I have. Makes me want to try out more and more Discmania stuff.
