^^^Only came across flat ones in person, but look hard enough, and you can find all variations in a run (had a production run domey Z-FLX once, and I actually liked it.) I buy my Zones in person or from a site that describes the profile (OTB, Disc Baron), or message the seller. It's easy to find your preferred profile.

It's not just the puddle/flat top... it seems the shoulders have gotten a slight bit taller too. That said, I'm talking an extremely small sample size that I've felt up lately.

Maybe I'm just turning into one of those long-in-the-tooth, old "back in my day discs used to be _________" sorta guys. Maybe probably.

My local PIAS has all new 5x Zones and all of them had domes. Puddle tops are so hard to find now.

Yeah, I retract my previous statement. Looking around online, and it looks like flat to domey is the spectrum for the 5x. Puddle top throwers are going to have to skip this run.

Discraft is generally peak quality, but how do you mess up Zones? I've met very few people who want a Zone to be anything other than board flat, and the ones who don't want them board flat want them puddled.

Nobody wants a domey Zone. I wonder if Paul's black on black run is domey

I don't know much about the manufacturing process, but maybe cooling too fast results in more shrinkage, popping the flight plate up? LE runs have been known to produce some outliers. All I know is production Z-FLX is still on point, and that's my prefered blend of Zones, so I'm happy.

Yeah Discraft did this with the ESP discs and they had only ESP FLX for 2008 as from 2007 Ace Race to end of the year ESP was FLX. In 2008 regular ESP was hard to find, then when ESP came back in 2009 to 2019, 10 years was a less durable product then old ESP. It was like the ESP got rushed or the plastic from the suplier had changed for a year when they then found in 2009 ESP like plastic in the pellets ran off the old ESP/ESP FLX while making ESP at the same time.
