Has anyone picked up one of the new ESP Rattlers?

As a bit of a lid-whore, I couldn't pass up ESP Rattler. First impression is that I found it to be quite stable when compared to my Pro D's. Also has a smidge less glide than the Pro D's. The ESP mix feels kind of slick to me, so not sure how much use it'll get until it gets warmer. However, I have three Jawbreaker Rattlers arriving today. I'm very excited to see how these fit into the mix as well. I really like to grip of the jawbreaker plastic during these winter months.

I have one jawbreaker rattler. I bet you’ll like it. Mind spilling the beans as to where you found them?

Wow. I just picked up a nice deep dish ESP rattler today! It's not a polecat. It's not a sonic. I couldn't resist!
Lid junkie confirmed.

When you have 250' to work with and a crate full of lids, quarantine is currently okay. I hope you all are safe.

I threw my son's 113gram polecat around the other day. That's a fun disc. Holy floaty. Don't think I I could trust it on the course, but it's so fun to toss. I swear I can make it just hover in the air forever. Real fun!!!!

(F.Howl asked if I bag Rattlers):

They're always in and out of the bag, most commonly used for running the basket when outside of putting range or certain risky greens. I love short rollers and skips so anything goes for approaches - Drone to beat Cobra to my beloved Clutch.

The occasional grenade to be fancy of course
My preferred Rattlers are older and 165ish, though I do have a couple current run Ds and 3 Jawbreakers. These definitely fly a bit more overstable than all of my others, though it's not large amounts. PLH across the five ESPs I bought are all very similar. One thing I will say is they're a bit more brick like, even with the glide - what I mean is they take a little extra power to do what other plastics would. SpikeHyzer mentioned they're a bit slick, I won't disagree but it didn't stop me from throwing them this winter.

Was there anything specific you wanted to know?

Considering changing my approach lineup to one that includes a slow, neutral option. Thinking a lid would be potentially dope.

What are the usual suspects for stuff to try? I would like good plastic availability (more than just DX/D ideally), slow speed, neutral stability (more on that below), prefer beaded although I understand that may not be a thing.

The shot I am looking to cover is one that a Proxy would fade out of - touchy annys in the woods, mostly.

I have tried a 165ish g DX Polecat and was not a fan - utterly demolished by a breeze. Maybe max weight would be preferable.

As far as stability, HSS is less of an issue than the requirement for as little LSS as possible. Although I guess my problem with the Polecat was its propensity to blow off the face of the earth, so maybe something on the more stable side of lids would be in order.

Thanks you all. Stay healthy

Max weight current run polecat may be your best bet. Most lid like discs are pushed around more. Premium plastic and lids dont mix well. There have been and are some good examples (whitler comes to mind but oop and worse in the wind than a polecat. A heavier superhero would be a good choice. Or track down a star sonic. Both of those are tricky to track down.

Edit:

I guess the lids that fly right in premium plastic are the ones that were molded for that. (Hero, whitler, bite, beetle)
