The only 2019 release I've thrown is the Rift and it's pretty solid. Nice, seasoned Buzzz flight out of the box.

Outside of that, I didn't feel the need to buy overpriced test runs/protos with certain pros names on them.

I picked up a Discraft Anax at a tournament. I thought with a glide of 6 that the disc would glide forever. I was wrong. I'm not saying that I'm disappointed in it, I'm still throwing it from time to time, but definitely wasn't what I thought it was going to be. With time I'm sure I'll get that glide of 6.

Yeah, it’s more like a 4 fresh. They hold a nice line, but I’ll stick with my Stag for that distance.

Love the look of the 1060 ANAX, but the outer rim is sharp. . .the Vulture feels much better in my hand, and the CryZtal is close to "ANAX stable"

I wasn't really disappointed in any DISCS per se - but the plastics. I love the Luna, and the proto was sweet - but the other blends (which are ok) aren't soft enough for colder temps and the protos and rock hard and I only want to use them in warm weather so I'm switching putters around this winter. Not a horrible thing, just hope discraft makes better putter plastic soon - pro D is garb.

ESP Anax is rock hard as well, I miss softer ESP. (not flex just a softer esp for colder temps)

overall it was a good 2019. Added a few things to the bag. I really like my set-up / options for the most part for every condition. So its a stretch to complain that new discs don't have enough plastic options - they're still new.

I would LOVE a Luna in the Rubber Blend Plastic i have in my Buzzz. .feels like a softer version of the Proto Luna

Yeah in the meantime I'm sticking with my Saint Pro for that slot.

St.Pro is a solid disc. Don’t blame you at all, and with both the St.Pro and Stag the 5/6 glide is real.

I agree, I first was getting into the Vulture, but some of the EPS's were actually kinda flippy I liked the Big Z version, but not many color options. Then I tried the Anax which is nice but that rim is so sharp feeling, and the plastics are all too solid/sharp ----feel I prefer Vulture - flight actually prefer the Anax

I had one in the bag in winter but I couldn't do it, too rigid/sharp/slick. I hope they release a new run and hope they are in a nicer feeling plastic.
thought I will say the ones I used in summer after getting some work in they feel a lot better, so the plastic is durable and takes a long time to beat in, but once its worked in it will feel and fly great. But, I ain'y got time like that haha, I don't play THAT much.

I thought the Raptor was pretty disappointing. Doesn't fight the wind as well as a new predator, doesn't have the distance potential of an anax or vulture, and doesn't have the controllable straight flight of an undertaker. Kind of a weird disc to slot in, at least for me. I could see how someone could set their bag up for it but it just didn't click for me.

Didn't try out a ton of new discs this year, just a few older molds or revisited a few I used to throw.
