Not sure about production, but you can probably find some esp AR ones from td's with leftover inventory. I called up mine earlier this year to buy a few...

Default SOL

So who is throwing this disc. I got one a few months ago and really loving it.

I know it flies similar to the Breeze but when I threw the breeze back in the day, i had no control with it. With the sol, i can hyzer flip it to flat or throw it closer to flat and hold a slow turnover line. Even have had success throwing on different forehand lines

I bag a ace race Sol right now. Better grip and dosn't skip like the z Sol does. I love it, it's such a fun disc to throw. I love it for forehand annys when you're pinched off in the woods.

If you pinch one off in the woods, you should always bury it.

Can someone compare these to the flight of a Mirage? Are they more glidey, long putter or short mid?

There are some AR ESP’s still available on eBay.

Well… They really are a tweener. I suppose I would put them as a faster, glidey putter because they do require more touch than a mid.

The Mirage is way more US than a Z SOL. .

If i throw a SOL and a Mirage with a hyzer release at 250ft of power the SOL flips up and then goes straightand lands flat.
The Mirage flips up and starts to turn and lands at a anhyzer angle

Fo me the SOL is a short mid, kind of like a shorter Meteor

This is true. They are sensitive but fun and a tweener best describes its role. It's a good low speed turnover disc. It's easy to hyzerflip and these two qualities make a nice complement to something like a zone. They are sensitive to the wind. I hate flicking any of my deeper (taller?) putters because I like a shallow disc to flick, and the sol is a shallow disc.
