Not sure about production, but you can probably find some esp AR ones from td's with leftover inventory. I called up mine earlier this year to buy a few...

Can someone compare these to the flight of a Mirage? Are they more glidey, long putter or short mid?

There are some AR ESP’s still available on eBay.

Well… They really are a tweener. I suppose I would put them as a faster, glidey putter because they do require more touch than a mid.

The Mirage is way more US than a Z SOL. .

If i throw a SOL and a Mirage with a hyzer release at 250ft of power the SOL flips up and then goes straightand lands flat.
The Mirage flips up and starts to turn and lands at a anhyzer angle

Fo me the SOL is a short mid, kind of like a shorter Meteor

This is true. They are sensitive but fun and a tweener best describes its role. It's a good low speed turnover disc. It's easy to hyzerflip and these two qualities make a nice complement to something like a zone. They are sensitive to the wind. I hate flicking any of my deeper (taller?) putters because I like a shallow disc to flick, and the sol is a shallow disc.

I would also say that the SOL can go farther on the lines you put it on.

Yes the SOL can go really far, much farther than a Mirage.

You can get surprising distance with little effort with the Sol

I kinda always felt the Sol was a slightly shorter Comet but much less power hungry.

Last couple of weeks my ace race Sol has become my go to turnover disc from anywhere 200'-300'. Thrown on hyzer with good snap it will flip up and turn right and it just keeps going right with out coming back or turning and burning. Very unique flight. Love throwing this on very technical wooded holes that finish right.
