So after throwing my Thunderbird 360' straight to fade, what is the best 9, 4/5, 0, 2 disc from DC? I've got a PmB UT, but it flipped hard under the same power, and both the Raptor and Vulture intrigue me, but for different reasons.

Probably either Vulture or DGA Banzai. Banzais is a little slower I think.

DGA Banzai. Might be a 8 speed. I use it as a complement to my Volt... Volts were 9s, now they are listed as 8s, so whatever.

Seems like a good rip for a Thundy. Undertaker won’t be close to the same flight for you. It will turn a hair and come back for net straight. Vultures I’ve thrown were close to the couple Thunderbirds I’ve thrown, with a bit less resistance to turn into any headwind and probably a bit less fade. They’re wider diameter with a pointier, but slightly narrower rim than a Thunderbird.

In some capacity yes, but I haven't seen very many. I used to have an X Challenger or two. Years back.

I found the flat big z vultures were the best for straight to fade. The rest had a little turn to them. No experience with the raptor.

Just past that distance, Undertakers need to be hyzerflipped.

Not finding much information about Z-Lite.

I've seen a Crank (maybe SS), but the color was not great.

Discraft's website doesn't even list it as a plastic. Infinite Discs has it as a search parameter, but no discs show up.

What's the story?

It's on there. It's like Innova's Blizzard, Prodigy's Air, etc.

https://www.team.discraft.com/plastics

Also under disc profiles, there is a drop down of the plastics the disc is currently produced in, highlighted in orange. ZLite is abbreviated "L": https://www.team.discraft.com/discs/Nuke-OS

^^^In posting this, I noticed that the 3d profiles are up for most of the discs now.
