Their normal ESP Swirls or their tour series swirls?

I'm not a huge fan of the tour series-like swirls, but the natural, random swirls in their normal ESP plastic is amaaaaazing. The thing that I love about it is that their swirls can come in some really bright, saturated colors. It's not always muted tones like innova's swirl star.

Both. but the KONG/ZEUS, ANAX ones have the most unique swirls ( and feel of the plastic ). . a few of the Tour Series are really nice

Yeah, I got a bunch of absolutely beautiful Zeus now, and many of them are insanely vibrant to boot, so they are still easy to spot in almost any condition. Huge fan of the ESP plastic blends (aesthetics and quality) they have been putting out lately. They still have some work to do on their base plastics, though.

But its very annoying that no webbshop here in Sweden have photos of each disc. . with Discrafts new nice Swirl disc ( and tie-dye ) you really need to see them before buying.
I have bought a few from Infinite Discs, but shipping. VAT and customs stack up to some very expensive discs

I have to admit I miss some of the old Z... nevertheless, they've definitely upped their ESP game and that's been an excellent business decision.

As long as the new ESP is as durable as the old ESP from the 2000's. The 2010's non Swirly stuff is a bit undurable and almost like a messed up double/triple strength regular X.

Some of the new Z is good too, I have an Archer with the slightly gummy plastic just before numbers were added to the molds with the Shimmer to the plastic. That plastic reminds me of the old Elite Z that had the stamps on the edge raised up and built into the disc with the old Discraft logo, in terms of the slight flex/gummy feel the old Elite Z from those early runs.
