Diameter: 21.3cm
Available Weights: 165-174g
Plastic: Discraft FLX

ESP Avenger SS
Flight Rating Category Value What Discraft says:
We took the best aspects of the The Avenger -- its speed and glide -- and flatted up the edge. The result is a disc that flies longer and is easier to control. Ams will love it for its flat flight and smooth finish. Pros dig it for mondo turnovers and sky rollers that go forever!

Review: My disc is an 07 Players Cup Avenger SS ESP Cryztal FLX. All of these ranged in weight from 173-174 I think, but I haven't weighed the disc on a scale yet.

This disc is awesome for long, open fairway shots. If you were to stack this disc on top of a regular X Avenger, you would find the SS is shorter in height. That helps make it less stable and fly straighter. And man, will this thing fly for miles if thrown correctly. I'd almost view this disc as a specialty disc rather than just a fairway or distance driver because of the special touch needed for throwing it. It's got a real low profile, and combined with the Cryztal FLX plastic this thing takes one delicate touch mixed with some good force to get good flight and predictability out of it. If this FLX plastic were a little stiffer, it would be much easier to master this disc. The floppiness of the plastic requires a little more finesse. I know I make it sound like using this disc is too difficult, but it's not that, it just takes a lot of getting used to because it's so flexible and has such a low profile. It's really a one of a kind disc.

I would compare this disc to a lower profile, non-stiff Innova Champion Roadrunner or Sidewinder, but with a tighter, flatter, and longer flight, and a thinner rim than either the roadrunner or sidewinder. This disc is ideal for turnovers or long straight hyzers, but I haven't been too agressive with this disc because it's one of only 400 in the world. When I get a regular ESP FLX SS, I'll tear it up all day long. I'd also like to say that even though this disc is supposed to weigh 173-174, I feel much like I'm throwing a 169-171 Innova Champion Sidewinder, but with a flight path that's doesn't go side to side as much as the sidewinder and stays flatter.

Awesome disc, once you get used to it. I wouldn't recommend it for people with a huge arm unless they can also deliver finesse into that powerful throw.
