Bumping this for some more Pred love.

My local course was getting high winds today (gusts up to 40 supposedly) but today was the last chance I'll get to play for a while so out I went. I had a great game and most of my best shots came from my Z Pred. I was even getting great upshots with it. They are just so damn useful for how stable they are. It is one of those discs I can throw and afterwards usually say "Yeah, that is exactly what I wanted it to do". Good stuff.

Added my first Z Pred to my bag over X-Mas, as a Pred thrower for nearly 2 years, I ashamed to admit I've only ever thrown the ESP and FLX varieties.

Anyways I'm incredibly impressed. I love my ESP Preds, but this Z was incredible. Orange 175, really pearly. Threw it on the same lines on the same holes as my ESP and it was 20'-30' longer on average. Overthrew a lot of holes today. For an Overstable disc it's glide is really impressive.

Why did they ever stop making the X pred?

I doubt it had to do with the x-plastic availability. I would have to guess that the Predator had to be one of the better selling molds in x-plastic(Guessing buzzz would be number 1). I love me some nicely worn X-Pred's...they compliment my z's nicely.

Can't be the sourcing of plastic, they still make X Buzzzes. I think it's because they hate us.

All the X Buzzzes I've seen lately have been floppy R-pro type plastic. Not good for drivers.

I'd imagine it was a financial decision. Internet geeks might like them, but the general public isn't buying overstable drivers in baseline plastic. They want premium plastic drivers...

They outsourced the X-Preds to India and something was lost in translation...

Idk if it's best cuz my ESP's are pretty darn tasty especially my really domey First Runs. Just different almost like S-PD and CFR C-PD different.
