I putt with a Zone. But only if it’s stupid windy. Normal conditions I much prefer a more traditional putter.

I do the same. Zones work good in the wind. What plastic do you use?

I was using jawbreaker. I only bag one Zone though and it is currently a Crystal Z FLX sparkle or whatever they call it. Kind of a flexible, squishy plastic with some glitter in it.

I think my Maiden and zoke feel similar in hand. Much less stable too.

That's what I'm bagging too. Works well. It is invisible though, luckily I don't throw it very far.

Yeah, mines black. You almost have to be standing on top of it to see it sometimes.

P3s are nowhere as overstable as Zones. They also do have a different feel. Both are shallow, but the Zone top is flat, whereas the P3 has a dome ... but more important for putting feel (for me) is the underside of the flight plate. There the Zone has pretty much a rectangular angle between flight plate and rim, whereas the P3 has some upwards curve (even when the top is flat). This is the reason the Zone feels awkward for putting for me. Otherwise I would probably putt with a really beat in JB Zone.

This is what I suggest. As you seem to like the Zone for putting, beat one of your JB Zones a lot to make it straighter. Then use that one for the longer putts.

Besides, longer putts are more a putting technique topic, as you need to transfer more energy into your disc. Maybe that's more the problem. Although good technique lets your putts fly farther, it doesn't remove the fade and hyzer landing angle or the need for anny releases to compensate that.
