Not sure if this is a helpful observation or not, but I'm finding the new PP sig Sol is a bit less glidey than the Elite-Z. Which is fine, but it produces a slightly different line with less low speed turn, and is a hair faster. Not sure if this is standard across the run.

Yeah, it turns over so easy. I'm still throwing it alongside my PA4's to see which I prefer more for that spot.

So, if I want a disc that holds a turnover longer on a slow finesse approach, maybe the Elite-Z Sol is a bit better than the PP signature Sol?

In my hands, My Elite-Z would be (or would have been, RIP) a better shot for this than my PP, yeah. Depending on the exact shot of course, keeping in mind I only throw it about 250. The PP tends to turn and drop harder.

Still waiting for Discraft to make a production run of ESP ones the same as the ace race version.

I doubt they will. It's a niche disc so I don't see Discraft running it in a lot of different plastics. It will probably be a Z-only disc other than one-off specialty runs. I don't know that for sure, but if I wanted ESP ones I'd for sure be trolling around for used Ace Race discs now while they are still fairly common and stocking up.

ESP would be nice, but these in JB would make amazing long range putters.

Fierce is a completely different feeling disc from the Ace Race Sol

Bought the regular Z Sol the other day. Man that disc is magic in the woods! Effortless hyzerflips to turnovers. The glide is strong with this one. I use this as my turnover putter (I know it' s supposed to be a midrange) from now on. Ohm is my straight-stable putter and Entropy is my meathook.
