The only heat I've thrown was a lighter ace race, but it was one of the flippier discs I've had.

The Heat I have is 165g Z FLX. I won't call it flippy, but it can definitely turn over if you get overly assertive or throw it into a headwind. It needs a little hyzer release to get max distance on hard rips.

I'd say it has about -2.5 high speed turn.

i throw a first run z heat and a ti heat the ti has more fade. they real r neutral fliers for me and I can work them on different lines. wouldn't throw them with 400' power, oh wait i don't have 400' power so i can throw them all the time.

How does the Heat compare to the Discmania TD? I've heard that the Heat is more neutral/understable than simply understable, similar to the TD.

This is a "who cares" post, but I am a 70+, and the XHeat 167g is my rock. My game is staying in the fairway and hitting landing zones to set up a clean approach for a par putt. The XHeat puts me in usually good shape for that.

that is a fair assessment. at 300' power a z heat is dead straight from the hand to the ground if thrown flat.

The Heat is a very good mold. Fairly unique in that it'll hold a good, straight line even on a soft throw without a bunch of late fade.

I was able to get the Heat out to about 400' fairly reliably. It'll flip if you get too assertive, but a gentle hyzer release will do the job just fine.

I just got a production 174g z heat, and found it to be too stable for rolling duties. Was really hoping that it would work from all the rave reviews of it, but unless I got some weird one off not sure if this mold is what I'd be looking for in a roller disc. For reference, I roll with max weight Icon Mongoose normally.

I don't think the Heat is quite flippy enough for "turn and burn" rollers. It WILL flip if you really wrench it over, but the Heat seems to be somewhat resistant to rolling all the way over.

A Nuke SS or Freedom would be a good high speed roller disc. Neither one of them will stand up to hard throws.
