New Run Z-Xtreme

Postby discspeed » Tue Mar 19, 2013 6:31 pm

I just received a new run LE Z-Xtreme. I was always a fan of the run from like 2002 and threw them for years. I don't think I've thrown a better overstable mid/fairway utility disc so I was excited to test it out. Mine weighs 174 and feels like old Z plastic...Makes me wonder if this is the same stuff the new 10yr Buzzzes are made of. The disc looks and feels great. It is a bit more flexible than I remember the old run being, but it is still fairly stiff by today's standards.

In true Z-Xtreme fashion I had to OAT it a bit to keep it from swinging back around and hitting me in the face. It's hard to talk about glide with this mold, but I think this new run has a touch more of it than the older ones. It has a great lawn dart type flight path and gets down and sticks well. It doesn't want to fly laterally much, just turned over/straight then coming down.

Is it domey? I was going to get a few, but all the ones I felt had large domes.

I got two, both of which were quite domey and considerably less HSOS that the real deal flat Z Xtremes. Also, the plastic seemed less substantial in the hand. I couldn't unload them fast enough.
