I'm really happy with mine. Got it next day shipped before a tourney, because my old bag ripped. 9 months and no wear (granted I use a practice duffel most of the time, and only pull out the backpack 1 or 2 times a week for competitive rounds) Holds a nice stiff shape. It's no Octothorpe, but solider than any under $100 bag I've felt.

So, not sure if this is the place to ask, but does anyone know if there is any plan to make the Mantis and Vulture in Z FLX plastic?

They definitely are. Nearly a third of their discs are made in FLX (click on the disc, and see if the (F) is highlighted: https://www.team.discraft.com/the-discs

Plenty of FLX on those shelves:

Would a zflx Crank be less stable than a big z Crank?

You're going to get a lot of variance in FLX for highspeed discs. Its better to buy those in person to compare parting line height, or at least buy from a dealer that lists the profile of each individual disc, like Disc Baron or OTB.

Only FLX Crank I have is in a Cryztal FLX that was a tourney run (greater variances usually in CFR than production runs in my experience) and it was like throwing a dinner plate. I have regular run Nuke OS's in FLX that fly just like my Z's though.

I throw cranks for my distant slot. RHBH 380-400' on control crank shots, 450+ on an amazing shot with lots of movement.
-Z is most stable and touchy
-ESP is good workable straight to slight turn
-Big Z were the fastest to get floppy
-Crystal/Z sparkle were amazing. Best crank ever, but limited run and hard to find anymore. First ledgestone year, iirc.
-Zflx is my favorite. It holds annys really well. All the way to the ground with good height. Best for the slow hyzer flip line.

Yeah but ESP FLX is gone. Soft X is only for putters.
