Ringer in premium plasic

Does anyone know if Discraft made the Ringer in any plastic other than Pro-D? I have a couple team stamped Ringers that feel like Pro-D, but better. Also, if anyone is selling more team stamped Ringers, I'd be interested. Thanks.

According to legend, Discraft made ~200 Z Ringers for one of their pros. These are "in the wild", but expensive to get, if you can find someone to let go of one.
Nothing else, that I know of...

they made Z Ringers

I used to have 4 or 5 of them

very nice discs, should be in production IMO

fast, stable

I went off them when I decided I didn't like the Pro D version...too slick

anyway, they are out there but very tough to find
and those that have them don't come off them easily

I really liked the Pro D when I used it. Red/pink ones were the best. I had heard about the Z, but I wouldn't know why you would need one.

The proto and first runs feel better than the production runs

as a driving putter that is excellent for driving and doesn't beat up too quickly

same reason you would buy an Opto Pure or Ion or ...

I know this is an old thread, but I really think it's important we don't let the idea of putting Z Ringers into production die!

I had two of those Z Ringers that were made for Mr Dion Arlyn, sold one to a buddy that was absolutely in love with it, he got his car broken into, disc gone. I had mine for over a year, threw the crap out of it, hit a couple aces with it, lost it to the Spokane River early this year.

I absolutely agree that Ringers should be made in a premium plastic. They are great driving putters in Z. I have bothered Discraft multiple times about producing it in Z and they always say maybe. I don't get why they wouldn't do so. It's a pretty damn stupid if you ask me.

I know a few people that have some, and no, they won't come off them. If they do, I will be buying them all. ALL I SAY!
