Ive got a beat to hell X heat that is my BH roller / woodsy short tomahawk Disc.

Z heat for more stability (but still flippy for power drives) steep hyzerflips or thrown hard and flat for long panning annys.

Basically a comet in driver form! But perhaps a bit more touchy at times. The mantis is a slightly slower / beefier version of the heat in my mind.

FWIW I wouldn't hesitate to get another Z FLX. Sounds like it's maybe a little more stable than reg Z or X. But still great glide and not OS. I love it.

I might have to try a different Heat. I have a Big Z (under 170gm), and just don't love it. I can't put my finger on it, it just doesn't seem to work very well.

I have a Sail and like it a lot, but it's gotten almost too under-stable even for me (I think it's 157gm). Comets: I love 'em all. My go to driver right now is a Z Mantis (167gm). Even the ESP Cyclone is awesome. But I just can't stand the Heat.

I'll give it another try, and will keep my eye out for another one to test....

When the Heat was released in Big Z, I hated it; still do. Elite Z feels, and flys, different.

A Z FLX Heat is a great driver. It WILL turn and burn, but only if you get overly aggressive. I found that mine would turn, but come back gradually late in flight. Very nice, glidey disc for shots out to about 375'. Almost no late fade either. Very floaty and straight.

I haven't tried any other iteration of the Heat, but I reckon they'd be flippier. Usually Z FLX is pretty beefy plastic.

Picked up a 174g Z Heat. Impressed with glide and stability. I thought it was going to turn and burn, but it powers down nice for a straight to baby fade shot. Or I can give it a rip and it will be a nice big S curve. I can get it out about 330 feet with my power. It's basically a faster mantis for me ( I have a big Z mantis ).
