flash

I don't know. I wonder what demand the flash would have in D or ESP plastic. I definitely like the Z though.

I know the crush has been released in D and ESP. The D crush flies much farther and is less stable than the Z.

the flash will be the next disc in esp plastic. i have seen protos in other plastics and they were super overstable.

as for the crush, i haven't thrown it in esp, but generally the d's are the most high speed stable and low speed overstable of the bunch with the x being the flippiest.

i'm curious what the reason for this is... does discraft do it on purpose, or is it generally true because of something about the plastic (dries different, or whatever)?

X plastic. . . is it been the same from run to run? or has it been "evolving?"

i had an X XL in 2001 it was pliable (flight plate-flexible) . got the same in 2004 it was stiff. both were tie dye, same weight.

my bud has an esp surge and the flight plate is flexy like my 2001 xl. i am jealous.
