ESP Banger GT

Postby Bradley Walker » Sun Aug 20, 2006 6:45 am

Picked up one of these from the USED BIN no less. 174 gram ESP like brand new.

Well, it drives better than KC Pro Aviar. Putts like crap though.

More like a slow FT Roc on approaches. I like it. Very good in the wind. Best putter speed driver I have tried into the wind.

I love ESP plastic. It is immortal (somebody else coined that phrase here, but it fits).

Now if I could find my Crystal Buzz...

banger = wizard that is slightly less high speed tability, slightly more fade, sightly shorter range, and beats understabe instead of just stable. (I have not tried esp, but I threw 5 d bangers to death, in three months, I am still throwing the wizard that replace them six months ago bangers break in different than th wizard its that simple, the gt made the flight place more prone to warping and creasing)

I think the challenger is discrafts best putter.

I wish to retract this statement. In the calm air it is shorter than a KC Avair and flies about the same. It is much shorter than a regular Aviar.

Requires wind to glide I guess.

Good for 10+ winds though.

Sorry.

I have a wizard (proto) that I have been using for 5+years and it is starting to get understable. throws almost identical to a beat roc

I would say a life use period of more than a year for baseline plastic is plenty, 5 years is just amazing

The pro d banger certainly was similar to the wizard, just a bit less stable. Also the pro d plastic beat up way faster than my wizards.

I was curious how the star/esp plastic would grab the chains since it's supposed to be grippy or rather grippier than elite z/champ plastic.

Y'all don't think it catches chains well?

Eh, I dunno. ESP plastic I think doesn't have as much grip as star plastic. Might just be my first run surge? I've thrown a few close putts with my surge, and it definitely grabs the chains, but not as well as my star TL...

There's only one way to find out! :wink:

Well considering my gf claimed by black pro d banger, I suppose I should pick one of these up and see what its like.

not nearly as well as the D Plastic. The esp plasic is slick on the chains, even though it feels grippy in your hand.

I never use my ESP Banger for putting, only approaches and short driving.
