I got a Andrew Fish tour support Z Force. It has a little turn out of the box. This started a Force purchasing spree. Austin Hannum Forces are awesome for big hyzers. Got some ESP 5x Forces yesterday and they are real nice too. I like the deeper rim and the fact that dome=beef flat=can turn. Makes it easier to pick out the ones you want. I like the ones that have a pretty mild dome.

I have a flat ESP Force that is an absolute hog, I also have a Z with a slight dome that actually flies pretty nice.

That's what I get for thinking I figured discs out. Always exceptions.

169 Z Forces are among the most reliable drivers I've ever thrown. While i don't advocate cycling, a 2 year old Force can be an amazing disc.

Beat in forces are amazing. There is a reason almost every Discraft Pro has some old workhorse with the stamp nearly faded off in the bag. I have a flat max weight ESP that is super OS, and a 4x slight domed Z force that had a little turn out of the box. Once you figure out the good runs, it’s all gravy.

I put Forces back in my secondary bag and absolutely loved throwing them.

Beefy Z, beat in Z and super beat ESP.

The ESP goes really far.

You mean like this one?

This is my money force. Never thrown something so fast and glidly but still over stable. I've been on the hunt for used old z forces recently. And it seems that most force throwers know what they have and are reluctant to give them up.

I just picked up 2 beat Z Forces. 1 of them is that run but pink and beat to hell. It does have great glide and some turn.

I think the secret is out. I can't find any beat z forces in the used bin by me.

I picked up some ESP forces. They are nice. I bag two ESP, and 3 Z. I only really need three of them(esp slight turner, z straight, z beef/forehand). I guess carrying a lot of discs is my "thing".

Does anyone have any idea what run of Force this tyedye one came from? It’s the most overstable force I’ve ever thrown. I also have a side by side of the parting line heights compared to a signature stamped Austin Turner Force.
