Just bought a z flx zone 169 pink concave to flat, slightly gummy

Pretty sweet zone. Flies more overstable than I thought since it's kinda gummy

Solid mid or approach disc

Thanks Earhart for the video on the Z FLX Zone. I find them to be as perfect as he described.

Looking for a “not so OS” Zone, and the best i have found in my stack is a domey Pro-D...but it’s black and I hate to throw black discs.
But how rare is domey Pro-D? Mine have a “heartbeat” dome

Or should I go for a Soft-X and beat it to hell?

Soft x or jawbreaker will beat in pretty quick. I have an x soft that flies very straight then has a delayed dump out at the end.

Just a matter of preference!

I only have one JB and it’s super puddle top...of all my Zones the JB is my biggest puddle top and the Pro-D the most domey (by a large margin) ..the difference between the two is insane.

Are most X Soft flat?

Could always try a ringer GT or breaker for that type of shot. I like the breaker for most approaches better, I can throw it a little more pure and not anhyzer it as much (especially FH). I have drones that quickly took the slot where I had been using a zone.

In terms of zones, jawbreaker are pretty flat and will beat in fast enough.

I do have a Flex and SB Breaker in the bag today..and a CryZtal Zone...but in a way it would be easier to just go with a few zones together with my Lunas

All of my proD zones start off poptoppy and break in fast. I have a beat puddle topped TI that is just like what you are looking for. I really like my straight, small fade zones as well. I could never get the jawbreakers work and they waffle so fast.

Honestly the thing I would suggest is either beat the tar out of an esp or try a different disc. The best disc I found for that is a soft cheif-os from gateway. The 300 A2 works well but takes minor breaking in. I currently use a newish proD zone for that slot (225-275) but for shorter shots (100-250) I use a beat bt hard harp, both are straight with little to no fade, forehand.
