It feels exactly like a PD in the hand to me. Doesn't have the same rim feel of a Predator.

Wasn't planning on hopping on this train but was at the local shop today and they just got a shipment in and found a really nice pearly blue one...
So far it has the same feel and very similar flight to my super beat lucid criminal. Very straight for about 315-330 then a nice dependable fade. Overall in the field it was flying about 20-30ft shorter than my destroyers and about the same as the criminal.

Nice disc

^ Yes you throw them because they are going to make a million of these and the market isn't going to go for 3-40 per disc ever unless people are crazy. Just throw the mcbeth discs, its what they were meant for. Disc Golf

^ I meant "the discs aren't going to be worth $30-40 each" and they shouldn't unless its a perfectly beautiful one. I hope STOCK PRICES come back to discraft soon----heck new STREAMLINE discs are like $13 off the shelf and the plastics are even better than ESP.

According to PDGA specs, the Anax and Banzai's measurements are exactly like with only the max weight being slightly different. The Anax and Tsunami are very similar too.

Not personal towards crd_81, but I'm wondering how the specs can be exactly the same but the permissible max weights be different?

We're talking .02g. Two one hundredths of 1 gram. Theres likely a measurement or two that are different in decimal places that aren't being reported, which is causing the difference.

Right? It's not like were talking about precision plastic parts going on a space ship where they would have super tight tolerances. Discraft gives you a sticker with a 2 gram range, so what's .02 grams???

And when is the approval date on the Bonzai? It could be that in the time between it and the Anax that the PDGA got a new & better scale.

I keep buying cool Kong's/Zeus discs and people continue to offer me more than I paid. I keep selling them. I agree it makes no sense, but hey. I'll stick to the low prices vultures and raiders, bought with my resale profits. I can't tell if discmaniacs or discraft lovers are crazier
