Pretty domey. Are they at least quite stable? I feel guilty for saying I’ve been throwing the hornet more often these days...

Would the water boil trick work on those? They aren't absurdly domey, so it wouldn't take a lot of movement for them to be acceptable...

I'd assume yes, just don't weight them - usually causes "+" stuff to go on. If need be reboil, just don't recommend the weight unless it's already flat but you want FAF (screw you Innova, it does NOT mean flat and firm).

I may or may not have bought a couple more yesterday, I'll boil one for ya if you want when I get them

One of my friends had a Flick that he bought without noticing it was a bit domey. His old one was puddled a bit so I told him to do the boil trick and instead of weighting, suction it down on his glass coffee table while it cooled. It worked pretty well. He had to redo it a couple times before it finally held the slight puddle permanently though.

Can confirm. Had an old domey ESP zone. Did the water boil + suction to quartz countertop trick. Worked well!

Sooo I kind of bought a stack.

PLH was very similar across the board, two were slightly lower than the others and two were slighty higher. All scaled between 177.5 and 180.2, most of which were right at the 178 point. Flashing was also rather ubiquitous, more pronounced under the PLH where the curved bottom outer edge met the top outer edge. The other spot where flashing occurs is on the bottom of the bead (subtle).

None were FAF, none were crazy domey. Most were slight shoulder to relatively flat (vague I know, difficult to describe properly). The two heavier ones have a slightly thicker, more blunt edge. They also happened to be the domier ones. Hand feel difference was subtle but noticable (the rim not the dome). One of which is the neon yellowish one I'll post pictures of in the future, the other is the blue I'll compare it to along side a somewhat domey yellow shakyZ and a production run pearly neon green Z I bought a year or so ago.

Unfortunately my power is out right now (thanks PECO) and I much prefer to post images through a web browser as opposed to mobile. I should have a chance to throw them all tomorrow out back, won't be able to safely throw them beyond 300' though.


Let me know what I missed/you'd like to hear about tomorrow!

Double post.

I forgot. Some were slightly more flexible than others, all felt much better than the Swirl ESP Rattlers I purchased. None are truly stiff (Swirl Drones and Rattlers were). All of which are grippy and almost tacky, like "good ESP" I've purchased over the years. Sure a few feel slightly better or worse but it's negligible across the board. Yes I wash every new disc I buy the same way, as well as muddy/dirty discs from playing.

I agree with what GripEnemy is saying about mold/feel. Mine has a slight shoulder but is pretty much board flat on top. Going to test it in the next few days and I'll give some descriptions! It feels comfortable in the hand with good grip. Images below.

I tried the opposite trick the hot water on the underside to make a Proline Titanic go flat top as a section was mini dipped in when getting the disc, after doing that a few times all it did was make the disc a tad flexible and only a go from mini to micro dipped in so if you go too much with a mold one way on the making the mold it can't be reversed from concave top to flat but can be made less. At least that is how ESP or modern Titanium both similar plastics to Proline would react also odd disc, the Spacer is on the outer wing side and not the nose due to how it molded up/got stamped, that is fine as I use Magnet mold too.
