Is their a need for a zone and gator? Maybe 30ish ft in distance ...

I find I get closer to 50' difference between my Zone and Malta. I can throw the Malta on hyzer and get it over 225' whereas I struggle to get the Zone to 175' under the same conditions. I also find the Malta to be more comfortable both BH and FH tham the Zone. If Paul thinks he needs both, both can live in the same bag.

Paul also makes a zone look a lot different from when I throw one, so take that for what it's worth.

Oh, my Zone throws look exactly like Paul's... just maybe 1/3 to 1/2 the distance.

And its always the same exact zone. I've never seen him throw any other color zone but that purple one, unless he's using multiple, but I think it really is the same disc.

I believe he has a couple of black Zones, but I haven't seen the other one in a while.

I just put a drone in my bag to slot between the zone and predator. It definitely fills a role, it's a very short predator flight, and is more wind/torque resistant than a zone (I don't have the cleanest forehand when I power it up)

OMG this is the disc I was looking for my whole life!! A more stable spider/cro!!

I wanted to ditch Rocs for a smaller diameter replacement but could never find one. And now that I have fallen in love with the DX Roc3x, I can keep those in the bag and fit these Malta's in below them!

Super excited
