Wait, so the guy threatened to strike a teenager with another disc? That's a good way to lose two discs!

I was not happy to see the Crush go OOP. I hope this is stays in the speed 11 arena. The Crush was more of a 10 to a 10.5 in speed IMO.

Love the name. I'm looking forward to a killer Big Z stamp on this one.

Reminds me a lot of the Lat 64 purge: kill off low selling molds, not that they were bad. Put out NEW molds, not terribly different, but NEW. Sales go up.

Or perhaps they are responding to the wishes of their pros.

More likely the original thought. And honestly a pretty sound one from a business perspective. I just hope they don't try to do it all at once, that would lose some of the benefit of always having a new disc around the corner.

Being a Surge thrower, I for one welcome an overstable 2.1mm rim driver. I could use a compliment disc for winds with the same time width.

Could kick my preds out the bag. Maybe being a little faster it can be more versatile. I will def be getting one when they come out.

Specs are pretty close to the Flick, except for the height...
Just noticed that rim depth of 1.1? I hope that's not true. Not going go well with my FH at all. Got to have more room than that.
