Yeah I bag both the passion and mantis currently. The passion is less stable than my mantis and will turn and have a mellow fade back when thrown flat.

I have a lot of different Mantis in different plastics. But they have been largely replaced with the DGA Pipeline, which feels great in the hand and is pretty reliable. Feels better than the Passion also. Even so, I am still a fan of the Mantis!

To me the dga undertow is more comparable to the mantis, both have a nice turn and huge glide.

To me, the Mantis has a workable understability that my Pipeline never had.
The Mantis seems to hold a line better when thrown hard. Has a slower turn to it imo.

Excited to see how these Big Z fly. I will have to do a FR Z/Swirly Z/Stock Z/Big Z comparison..

After throwing the flat Swirly Z I have, it's my least favorite so far....overlaps my Volt. Idk if it's because it's flat? But it doesn't have that slow-rolling turn my Z's have.

Is the Mantis going OOP?

Nah. Discraft has z in stock on their site. I'm assuming they probably have a full production run of ESP soon. Discraft said big z will be in limited runs as of now. Possibly be in full production if the demand is there

I doubt they will do an ESP production run, I don’t think the ESP plastic and the Mantis mold work well together, I have 3 of the Ledgestone ESP runs from last year and they are 3 very different discs.
