I can't picture the ESP or even the less stable Z getting to a flippy understable spot (I use 4 teebirds right now, 2 champ and 2 DX, one beat). Without trying to dig up some old X predators, would you recommend beating up a tsunami? What's the difference between D line and pro line?
I think the Tsunami is only in production in Pro and SP line currently. I've only had a little experience with Pro Line stuff but it does beat in a little faster than ESP plastic. I'm sure you could artificially beat one into being flippy pretty quickly by throwing it at a wall or something 100 times. On the course it seems like it would take an awfully long time to get really understable.
If you're looking to get a speed 9 overstable-ish driver beat into flippy, a P-PD is a good way to go. It will almost certainly have a better distance potential and fly smoother lines than a beat Z or ESP Pred, and will definitely get to the sweet spot waaaay faster. Obviously it's a different mold, but the transition felt natural to me as a dedicated Pred/Teebird thrower.
