Feels like cheating on my firebirds but man, this Raptor feels awesome. I’m guessing this will be a great sidearm disc. To balance it out I also snagged an Alex Geisinger color glow Firebird for 8 bucks somehow. A little domey but the plastic feels great.

Just ordered 2 Discraft First Run ESP Zeuses, 175 and 174 gm. I am currently throwing Fuzion Raiders and Bio Defenders. Looking for something that will flip a tad more than the Raider for mega-bombs. Currently throwing a 174 Fuzion Sheriff for my 450'+ it's-gotta-clear-this-water shot, but it has a tendency to flip a bit too much. Hoping the Zeus is the answer

I just ordered a Soft X Zone, and a Jawbreaker Zone from DGC.

I’ve been throwing my Champion Caiman a ton lately. Often I would prefer for it to hit and stick instead of skipping/bouncing. Zone seems like the best overstable approach option in a baseline plastic.

Hyzerbomb does make a Mortar in the Frontline-X or Frontline I forget which is the plastic that Innova later made and called its G-Star plastic and the Mortar is a same thing as a Cayman but without the intentional micro bead added to an Innova disc to replicate the mistake run of Mortar that had the micro bead. Another disc to think about if the Zone does not work out for you.

Last year after a few month playing, I bought 3 putters at a local store, Jawbreaker Ringer GT, Jawbreaker Zone and a Soft X Zone.

I have been using the Soft X Zone for my overstable upshots and putter drives since then. I added a Mcbeth Z recently because that Soft X Zone is now a lot straighter, still fade at the end but more forward left than dumping left. I also use it for windy putting day but right now I'm considering using it as my main putter.

I'm decent at putting but I always try to find the perfect match and I like to try new putters and plastic. Yesterday I received a Soft X Challenger and today I will go play some putters only rounds and I'll compare it to some others; Pro-D Banger GT, K3 Reko, and that Soft X Zone.

Yea I thought about that, but I was really going for a baseline or mid-grade plastic with better grip in wet/cold conditions. My next choice would probably be a 300 A2. If none of these work out then I'll check a Frontline X Mortar, or maybe some kind of FLX Zone.

So far I haven't liked any of the premium plastic Zones I've tried, Discraft plastic starts out too slick for me and I can't seem to get a good forehand grip.

I think you made the right call. Jawbreaker Zone really is a perfect slow, overstable, grippy, disc that will sit and stick. It's unfortunate that you don't like Discraft permium plastic, because a Titanium Zone + Jawbreaker Zone is a fantastic pairing.
