I only have the AR versions (all in the 167-173 weight) and the only shot I use it for is low height hyzer flip FH, and I love it in the 120-180 foot range now.

What I don't understand: I was throwing the same shot over and over (56 meters or 184 feet using a laser range finder on perfectly level ground) but right before finishing, it would either turn back over or it would fade. Same shot, flick hyzer, flip to flat, sail dead straight the same distance and then... MYSTERY ENDING!
Is it possible that a slight gust of wind is enough to change it? Like a slight headwind will cause it to turn over and a slight tailwind would cause it to fade? The numbers on turn and fade are -2/1.

On other discs that I regularly flip (such as the heat), I know that my 165 z-heat will always turn over at the end, whereas my heavy z-flx heat always fades at the end. But I am not getting that predictability with my sol...?

I got a first run z Sol in my mystery box. My first impressions is I love the feel in my hand of this disc. I like to jump putt from 60+ with a us mid. And I have a buzzz ss for that but I like how gildey the Sol is. Another thing I wasn't expecting was how well I can forehand the Sol. It's the same speed as a zone idk why this is considered a mid while the zone is a putter. But I think I'm going to like this to compliment my zone. Idk how well it will do off the tee that has yet to be seen but for dead straight approaches it's found a spot in my bag for now. Also I do not agree with the -3 turn rating it has especially in z. I would give it more of a -1.

I think the -3 is correct for the AR, because it's the easiest disc I have to turn over. But at the same time, it's a short range hyzer flip stud. It's my de-facto tunnel shot disc because it's so easy to flip with a low flick and go dead straight. I kind of hope to get one in my mystery box just to try it in z.
