Yep, exactly. Such a good controllable disc.

I wonder if that ESP FLX Chally that was in the bins of my local league is still there. How flat are the Z FLXs?

I've gone with Undertaker & Heat this year to cover my distance driving needs, I bag the three following types.

Heat is a good straight to understable driver that is sneaky long
X Undertaker breaks into a nice straight to stable flyer while the Z Undertaker is a bit beefier.

Anyone else here frustrated DC doesn't offer a KC Pro type plastic for putters? I want a KC Pro Roach & I want it now.

...or something like p line. Pro D and Soft X don't hold up. Jaw breaker is pretty inconsistent run to run. Seems like JB is a work in progress.

Yeah. Im a huge discraft fan but the base plastic is garbage. Even jawbreaker gets gouges really easy. Even tried the DGA base blends and it was worse.

All my bag is discraft except putters. Had to go back to the wizard

I only use Pro D & JB for putting so I really don't notice dramatic gouging. I just don't like soft flight plates. Always get more spring from my fan grip from firm plastic like KC Pro or 350g. I keep bouncing back & forth between McPro Aviars & JB Roaches. I love the shape of the Roach so much more but the feel of the McPros are perfect.

I would be pretty happy with a nice firm run of JB.

But without the pastel JB colors.

Anyone know if Discraft is doing any other.olds in the same ESP blend that was used for this year's ace race disc?

Really liking the feel and grip of that plastic now that colder temps are starting.
