The Mantis is a great utility driver for experienced players, and a distance driver for newer players. A touch of overstability enables control at slow or high speeds. Rip it hard for a hyzer flip, flex out a distance shot, or hold a straight line at slower speeds. Try Mantis for straight thumber shots too!
Best choice for: Downwind distance shots, shot shaping for longer woods shots, hyzer flips, flex shots
Speed: 8 Glide: 4 Turn: -2 Fade: 2
I really like the Big Z Mantis, a Discraft fairway driver. It's grown on me since the last time I reviewed it. Now I can get it to go 280-320ft max (RHBH)and it flies something like a long buzzz - straight with lots of glide and a fade at the end. It also will do a tight S curve, and it can turn over if it's thrown into a wind.
The Mantis feels great in my hand and I love the Big Z Mantis stamp that stares up at you from the ground.
This is my second Big Z Mantis from Disc Sports Canada as I lost the first one in the woods. Thanks again for the great service, competitive prices and fast delivery.
First of all, this disc looks really cool and the Z plastic is nice.
I can throw it a little over 200 feet with a fair bit of fade at the end which I think is more to do with me and learning how to throw than the disc.
Around the same time I bought a Champion Innova Valkrie which has similar flight characteristics to the Mantis, but just seems to go farther on the same line. I am still working on throwing the Mantis and I suspect that as I develop more power it will go better for me.
Overall it's a good disc but not my favourite for now.
Also I am very happy with the service from Disc Sport Canada. Delivery was fast (about 3-4 days to Toronto), all products were as ordered and the price was competitive. Thank you!
