So, my stock run Brodie Zone arrived today.

This particular one is very puddle topped. My other Zones are all pretty much just flat. I’ll be curious to see how this thing throws.

Anyone know how a puddle top Zone compares to the usual flat ones?

I haven't seen Brodie popping up on social much lately, Youtube in particular. Not that he's not putting it out there, but the algorithm is typically pretty smart about showing me what I would be interested in.
He has probably been putting in practice rounds on that course in Vegas he's playing this weekend... Didn't do great today though, just under his rating at 989

I've had a few different molds from DC with puddles over the years(Chally, Buzzz, Wasp, Hornet) but not a Zone. It usually made the other discs a bit more OS and have less glide.

Did you see James Proctor's score? He's 10 ahead of Brodie at -14 which ended up rated at 1081!!!

Normally puddle top = more stable.

The puddle top zone I lost flew pretty nice. If I had to compare it I’d say a touch more OS and weirdly a bit more glide than my just-a-hint-of-dome one.

idk i had a factory puddle top pro d buzz that was super flippy

zones (like every other mold) need to be measured by plh

dome or not plh is the defining factor

throw it and report back

Proctor is no joke on the course. He’s pretty focused on other things but if he dropped everything and only played disc, he would be very well known.

This is my first time seeing the stamp up close, looks great. I can see why these are selling well regardless if you're a fan of Brodie or not. But I am surprised they don't have his name on it. Does he have any stamp with his name on it?
