The Discraft ESP Mantis LE 2020 Ledgestone is a fairway driver designed to be a straight flyer. Don't let the fade and turn fool you, this disc will make tight S-curves that are perfect for some good disc golf wood play.
Whether you're a sidearm or backhand player it doesn't matter the Mantis will be a great pick for you. It gets solid distance and is a mostly straight flyer so it's ready to woods shots or when you have to navigate a tight fairway. The glide isn't great, it's kind of a point and shoot disc, it will get there like a laser so make sure you aren't throwing past your landing zone. The only unusual part of the disc is where the top of the flight plate meets the rim, it's slightly pop top. That will keep this disc stable when thrown at higher speeds.
ESP plastic is exceptionally popular among Discraft pro and amateur players alike. It's durable, it's a good price, and it's very grippy. This particular plastic is also firm and swirly. You'll be able to throw this disc for years without worrying about it becoming too understable. It's similar to star plastic from Innova.
One of the cool things about this series of discs is that they promote the Ledgestone Open. Some of the money you use to purchase this limited edition disc will make it's way back to the players in that disc golf tournament. You get an amazing disc and the chance to help grow the sport at the same time. So pick up one of these awesome discs today and improve your game!
