The esp rattler has replace my Sol in my bag for straight upshots and long jump putts. I liked the Sol for long jump putts up to 80' but I can easily blow by the basket. The rattler is slow and I don't have to worry about blowing past.

I love the rattler and have had a Pro-D in my bag for years. I prefer premium plastic as the sandy feeling of worn cheaper plastic bugs me. I picked up two ESP ones 155g and 175g. Both fly the same but the 155 goes about 10' farther. I'm very disappointed at the moment. after some breaking in of the 155g one I got it to not be so stable, but it seems so much more touchy than my Pro-D. I can throw the Pro-D on a slight hyzer and it will almost always flip up to straight. If it is on a anny it will not move too much. The ESP either rides a super long Hyzer or flips and dives. I don't know if it is just my grip not used to the harder plastic or it just doesn't perform like the Pro-D plastic.

Anyone have any thoughts?

I’ll agree with you findings. My esp tour series is either more stable than my old pro-d on short up shots or turns into a roller if thrown 2 mph faster. Might just have to take it out of the bag and go back to the worn out, 3 year old disc.

Just ordered a JB. Hopefully I will like it more than the ESP.

I feel like Lids are meant to be run in some sort of baseline / mid grade plastic. They fly truer to their design. The polecat is the same way, champs are a bit brickish, while the dx are money.

Although I do wonder if anyone has beat in their ESP rattler at all? I haven’t been patient enough.

I've barely been throwing mine, I'll torture test one of the uglies if you're curious.

Agreed that base lid is best lid...hell I even prefer my Rattlers more 165 than max weight.
