Can anyone compare the Banzai to the Vulture? Are they similar? I've heard some conflicting reports.

I ask because I really like the Banzai flight but would like to have more plastic options and availability.

Never thrown a Banzai. Shop has one in the used bin. Rim measured ~.710”, or same as the Undertaker/Tracker. Vultures come in around .735”, same as Predator/Raptor. Doesn’t say much except a Banzai theoretically isn’t as “fast” and may be more likely to have more turn and/or less fade.

The Banzai feels slower with a harder finish than a Culture (comparing Proline to ESP). You might get a more similar flight out of some of the more stable plastics for the Vulture like BigZ or that run of Cryztal that's supposed to be nice and beefy

Actually, this helps. Thanks!

The Banzai that I have thrown was getting good distance before it faded out. An underrated fairway for sure.

I have never thrown a Vulture but the Banzai is very MOLF like in its flight. A little harder fade, but later. It's got plenty of fade
