Z Zone is my preferred approach disc. I lean on my forehand a lot with a zone for almost all approaches under 175'

Remember when Reptilian Disc Golf freaking OWNED this forum? The Scale is a great low glide, overstable approach disc. But they haven't been as active as they were 3-4 years ago...

I bag the Harp. It's an excellent mold, though the Harp is not as OS and is more glidey than the Zone and other molds mentioned in this thread. My Harps are in BT Hard (Classic Hard) and Tournament (Fuzion) plastics. The main difference for me is that the TP plastic skips more than the BT Hard.

Isn't this the very definition of a Stego?

I drive with the VIP. I think it is more OS and less glide than the other plastics. Really use it more like a mid than a putter/approach. It has crazy ground play at times.

I use the BT soft for a majority of second shots. It grabs the ground well and really beat up has maintained its OS. It also doesn't have much glide.

BT hard I don't normally have in my bag, it is straighter than the VIP with more glide, doesn't skip like the VIP. I think it has more glide than the soft but will finish harder. One of the courses near me with quite a few open short holes but lots of elevation and wind this is the disc I use.

Dont know how "slow" you really consider the Gator, but the puddle topped Scott Withers color glows.... man, I've never thrown a disc so opposed to being in the air before.

a better suggestion from MVP/Axiom would be a powered down motion, but people on DGCR may be offended by the fact i'm suggesting a fast disc when the OP was looking for something slow... (because, you know, no frolfer can ever use the same disc for multiple purposes...)
A powered down OS fairway is great until it skips off the hard pan into the bushes

I think, especially for newish players, it just adds one more decision to the mix. I prefer to keep things as simple as possible.

Harp for putter speeds and zone for slightly more. Zone is between aviar-ish and roc-ish speeds
