OTB is the only online store that I've seen that describes the dome;

Seems like neutral is the closest they have to being flat.

Hyzerflipping Stings is just the best thing

Hi! Im back after another few months! So, I picked up a 170-172 First Run Z Sting and am almost disappointed. Its suuuuper stable. Zero turn thrown flat, zero flip on a hyzer. Guess hould have gone big Z. If anyone is looking for a stable one pm me. Good to be back!

Just picked one of these up in ESP...nice disc for sure. My favorite disc in my bag is a wonderfully banged up X Buzz that has a nice late turn, can flip to flat and stay there, or even power down for nice glideY short hyzers. I found the Sting to do all of these same things quite well out of the box. As such, probably won't go in my bag as there is some redundancy, but that doesn't change the fact that this thing is pretty great out of the box sandwiched between a fresh Buzzz and Mantis IMO.

I think those are the most stable version reported so far, Big Z are flippers for sure.

Just got back from doing an intro-to-disc-golf session with a couple dozen college students. I was amazed how well a Big Z Sting did for a novice thrower. I had been loaning novices a DX Leopard or X Mantis, may start handing out Stings now.

I guess I'll have to pick up a Big Z and live with the dome.

Was the Ace Race version flatter?
