I had the opposite thought when handling my stack. Seems like the best ESP blend I've felt in my 7 years of paying attention.

These are not as low profile as I was expecting after reading reviews. Certainly deeper feeling than the Tern, and only just noticably shallower than the Destroyer.
The wing shapes make me very happy. They have the subtle cooling dip in the top wing reminiscent of early *D Destroyers. Looking forward to ripping these on the course!

Dayummm. I def wouldnt call this a shallow rim. Maybe compared to a force but its feels normal with plenty of finger room.

The Kong might end up finding a place in my bag. Right now, for long hyzer shots and fighting headwinds I use a Z Force. My 172 domey Kong goes farther than my 172 Z Force on the same type of line, and penetrates more forward if I throw a forced flex anhyzer line. I'm only maxing in the 400-425' range with hurricanes, fwiw. Too much disc for a primary distance driver at that range, the hurricane is much more workable and controllable for me.

Compared to the LX Trespass I bag I found the Kong to be a little more stable, and domier/deeper so for my small hands not as comftorable as the Trespass. Will keep testing it to see if I can find a place for it in my bag because the swirls on the ESP plastic are incredible.

You may need to find one that’s a little flatter. The donkey ones are pretty stable

I’d buy one if they had named it Donkey instead of Kong.

Check that- someone needs to do a Donkey Kong stamp/dye.

Finally took my Kong's out today oh, they were much less stable than I was expecting super easy to flip up oh, far more so than my D2's

I really like these things and will probably be buying more this weekend

Varying reviews so far. I’m not surprised with ESP being, IMHO, the least consistent of the Discraft plastics and the rush to pump them out.

I hope I’m wrong. I was hoping that this would be something better than the Destroyer.
