Different Plastics

Postby TexasOutlaw » Wed Jan 18, 2006 3:35 pm

I asked this question in a previous thread, but I cannot locate it. Will an x predator result in more distance than an elite z yet still fight turn into a headwind?

Also, Blake do you like the x crush better than the x predator into the wind?

After discovering x avengers and how different they are from the elite z version, I'm rethinking some of the discs that I carry. I'm considering replacing my z predator with a max weight x predator or x crush. Any advice would be appreciated.

The X and Z predators handle headwinds quite well, the X will yeild slightly more distance and continues to fight headwinds through its first 1/2 life, then becomes a great high speed stable driver.
The X crush will handle headwindsalright, but will get flippy a bit faster than a x predator will.

x preds will get better d than z preds.

x preds are high speed stable, but if you get them turned into the wind they will not come back whereas a z will.

x crushes depend on the dome height, the domier ones are NOT good for headwinds above about 10 mph.

In your opinion, should I hang on to the z for headwind? Or maybe carry both?

As far as the crush, I've had 2, one very overstable, and one that seemed low speed stable, but became high speed understable (it was well worn). Granted, I do not have the consistency that you do, so it may have been me and not the disc.
