Wonder why all the Proto and first runs in the McBeth line is in ESP? ( exept the Luna )

I Know he has a Z Force but does he have any other disc in Z in his bag?

He's thrown Z Trackers, Z Vultures, and Crystal Raptors this year. I'd imagine the choice of ESP is because it's by default a more expensive plastic option and those sick swirls they've been able to make really helped sell them.

I think the tracker, Vulture and Raptor he throw was just in wait of the Anax. . Now he basically have to throw the Anax

One of the drawbacks of having his own line is that he needs to throw them no matter what...so he better get them right

Zones, a Cryztal Raptor towards the end of the season, Z Trackers at the start of the season. He bagged plenty of Champion with Innova (Roc3s, Thunderbirds, T3s, whatever OS fairway he was using). Maybe he just likes ESP, or doesn't like X (which would make a ton of sense for the Malta, Anax, and Zeus)

Something I find odd is that the proto Kong, Anax and now Malta all comes in a very grippy type of ESP. . But then the first run Zeus and Anax was in a less grippy typ of ESP/Big-Z kind of blend...and the proto Luna felt way different

I guess the proto ones is the one Paul have decided on and approved. . So why the big change in plastics? Customer feedback?

Not sure i buy that. . AFTER they said that they came out with the Rubber blend Buzzz that sure looks and feels like the Proto Luna plastic.
But, yes i have heard that. . .

But the FR Anax. Kongs and Maltas plastics are also very different than the proto

If Paul put all that time in development and came up with the Protos. . .it just odd that all the FR feels so different

I see that "DGputtheads flightchart" places the MALTA in the same "row" as the Justice, MD5, Caiman. .And Marshalls flightguide has it as "very OS"

Sure the MALTA is OS . . but i don΄t think it΄s very OS

Or did i get a not-so-OS one ?
