Default Dented Flight Plate

I recently bought an ESP Surge and noticed later it had a dent in the flight plate, like someone had pressed against it for a long time and warped it. It didn't really effect the flight, but is this normal or has it happened to anyone else?

I have two ESP Forces and both of them have dented flight plates. Never seen it with Innova.

I had a pro wraith the was really dented, to the point were it was the most understable disc ever, could throw it spike hyzer and it would flip and fade right. I also have a gateway wizard with a small dent/bubble on the flight plate, hasn't affect the disc flight and make a nice thumb spot.

If I had any Forces with non-dented flight plates I could make a comparison, but both of my Forces have dented flight plates.

They fly nice.

You can put water in it and microwave it for 30 seconds and then let it sit on something to cool and the top will pop back out. I know a guy that had a flattened Destroyer that he could hyzer flip into a roller and he did this and restored it to what a Destroyer should fly like.
