Probably the characteristics that make it unappealing as a driver plastic make it wonderful for the Zone. Mine are plenty stable, donít really glide, and pretty much always stick the landing with little to no ground play.
Yeah. With Zones I want glideless and overstable. I'm still just not a huge fan of throwing floppy/gummy discs. Its like the disc bends/moves as I throw, and I get bad releases. The Zone in my bag is fairly stiff regular Z. I like it a lot. The disc is almost ruthlessly overstable, and it dies instantly when it hits the ground.

I've thrown a Z FLX Crank and Heat and liked both. Everything related to Nukes (Nuke, Nuke SS) that I've thrown in Z FLX stunk.
