Another point for how throwing styles make discs act different.

I bag both a Ti Sting and a Circuit Relay. The Sting is diffentally more understable for me. The Sting also has more glide and a bit more late fade.

The Relay, for me, is better at tunnel shots as it has minimal turn and fade. A little like a Comet, but a little more turn and a bit faster.

I use the Sting for late turn shots and uphill control. It has more distance potential.

I play with a guy who has a Big Z Sting. The Big Z seems to be a true understable disc that needs lots of hyzer to fly straight.

Threw me ESP sting today. More under stable and a bit slower than the relay. Effortless hyzer flip to flat on low power and effortless turning shots on high power high lines. Flies for me how my relay used to. Definitely can’t throw it in any kind of headwind and does not take well to any kind of oat. Unless I got the nose up once it starts turning it doesn’t fade.

Interesting, I've been waiting for this post with baited breath......

Any comparisons to a Champ Roadrunner? I'm starting to think maybe I will rethink my Sting wants/ needs.... It sure felt good in the hand, like magical good

Don't have a champ roadrunner at the moment but just going off what I remember I feel like there isn't a lot of overlap there. The hand feel on the sting is great. Feels like a flat ish heat with a narrower rim.

Is the consensus that the TI Sting is the most stable to start with?

I’m assuming the original ace race ESP sting is the flippiest version?

I haven't thrown any haha but from what I read yes.. Then then the Big Z, ESP,Z, Ti....

I'm still horny on those, gonna feel one up next week and see if I end up cheating on my MVP, I want a big Z with the Scorpion.. Just because it's a Scorpion just not by Innova... I thought about a 150 Relay but I don't know.. The Sting felt REALLY good!

These smaller rimmed comfy fairway drivers are all the rage these days. Just not sure if I need to try a sting between my heat and my archer.
