You have not lived until you have forehanded a broken-in Z Force.

Is throwing on groups in front of you still the best way to break in Forces?

Maybe if you hit them, but I would not know that. The best way to break in a Force is to go to a grassy field, throw it vertically as high as you can, and let it crash into the grassy ground. Repeat as necessary.

Other way that works is to drape a thick blanket over a chainlink fence. Throw the Force at the blanketed fence with conviction. Repeat as necessary.

I love to beat my forces in the old fashion way. Hitting the tree I'm flirting with to get that perfect tunnel shot. I've got a green 174 Z force that I have been throwing for 4 years now. I have wadded into nasty ponds and lost everything I originally threw except for that disc. Easily the one mold I could never replace and should probably take an insurance policy out on. I would suggest that everyone get a chance to throw it forehand. I have converted everyone in my group to bag a force. I just with they would mold it in Big Z already.

Perhaps the ponds wouldn't be so nasty is you stopped wadding into them.

Bwahahahaha

It makes me giggle when people compare Champ Destroyers to Z Forces. Even the most FAF high shouldered/PLH'd Destroyer does not hold a candle to the Force. Comparable molds include a proper 400 D1 (very rare haha), Champion XCal, Champion Ape, C PD2, things of that nature. Of course, there is really no substitute for a Force.

Hey that's mean ... but seriously I haven't found a disc that will hold a straight line on a forhand drive the way a force does. The beat in ones have a slow drift with a solid fade, but the brand new ones, especially yellow and pink from my findings, are one a rope the first 325ft then start a long fade.

It takes a couple of seasons to knock any negative HSS into a Z Force. But it is a beautiful thing once it gets there.
