Crank/Crank SS is the straight to under stable side of my bag, distance wise. I also bag Punisher/Machete and will toss in a force for a particularly windy long course.

Anyone who bags a Crank should give the Crank SS a shot. It’s great for late turn, uphill and tailwind distance. I found the first run Z and Ledgestone Ti to be the most under stable. This may have turned a lot of people off. Maybe give the newer run a try. It feels just like a Crank with a lower parting line.

I hated the Crank SS I threw. It is SOOOOOO understable. I was throwing it on the steepest hyzer I could manage, and it was still turning and burning hard. The only possible uses I could see for a Crank SS are rollers and drives in extreme downwind conditions.

On paper a Crank SS seems like a good idea. Discraft made this thing too flippy. Once it flips it doesn't come back either. No late fade.

Mine flies about 12, 5, -5, 1. It makes a Shryke seem beefy.

Was it a first run or ledgestone? Those are pretty much as you describe. My point is that the newer run is significantly different.

Hard to hear but i think Paul said in the Brodie live stream that all his Sig. disc will be out in a Big-Z run in 2020

First run. Pretty much mint condition (not beat). It feels like throwing a coffee can lid. Its too flippy to be useful for anything.

I get that Paul wants his own line of discs, but it seems so silly to unveil a "Zeus SS" when there is a Crank SS,and Thrasher, seems like some overlap there. Same reason I didn't buy a Zeus, seems like the Force should suffice in that slot.

I just hate when companies have so many discs that overlap in similar speeds.

Seems to me, more new molds means less runs and possible discontinuation of others. I hope they don’t OOP half my bag.

I am a fan but I haven’t been particularly interested in any of Paul’s molds so far.

I haven't thrown a Force in a long time but I thought they were significantly more overstable than the Zeus
