2017 Am World Machetes and GMC Nukes had halos in the run too. And most of my 2018 ESP Nukes have them.

On a side note, I put a Mantis back in the bag and forgot how much I love that mold. Apparently there's a shortage on bigZ though, as I understand from our local pro shop?

What does a Mantis fly like? I am throwing a Streamline Drift in that neutral/understable slot. Is it similar?

Mantis is more like a Valkyrie in flight but a Dome like a Road Runner.

Never thrown a Drift so I can't tell you. It's kind of in between a stock z Undertaker, and a SP Pipeline. But seems to have more distance potential than both, YMMV

Someone remind me what a Surge flies like. I lost the distance I gained last year (was hitting 425 regularly, now 'only' 400 on open golf holes) so attempting to go a little slower speed for max drivers...been throwing hurricanes for the last 2+ seasons and I can't get a good flex unless I force it.

I think the Surge is OOP...go for the DGA Rogue.

To me they fly like a seasoned Wraith. I moved away from them because I couldn't find them in ESP anymore. The lone Z I tried just wasn't the same and I heard similar reports elsewhere about Z. I have no idea why DC doesn't feature the Surge more, especially with the popularity of the Wraith.

Get a Wraith, bruh.

Haven't thrown a wraith in a decade or more...does Discraft or DGA make a wraith? Seems like the Surge would be just fine for me, if I just don't stick with the Hurricane.

That is Innova Wraith, I know you are joking but just the very very rare chance you are not.
