I have over 20 Zones and no idea why. It is one of the most used and least cycled discs in my bag.

Not with the zone. I use jb for my putting putters ringer gt. I've thrown the ringer gt in jb and for some reason I've grip locked too many throws to trust it.

Might be something to look into since jawbreaker is relatively cheap, it may be just what you’re looking for.

JB Zones are alright if you're looking for a stable disc that doesn't fly like a Zone.

It's just a straight, low glide putter. I'd never putt with it but it's decent for touch approaches that you don't want to skip. I'm not a huge fan of my JB Zone, I actually prefer the Pro D Zone that I used to have for this.

And yes, a JB Zone will turn over if you mash it forehand. It's not some magical no turn no fade disc.

My JB Zone flies pretty much the same as my other Zones. I think overstability with a Zone has more to do with the disc flatness (puddleness?) than the plastic type.

Will a JB Zone beat in to be pretty straight? I’m looking for a forehand disc that doesn’t fade too much.

Allegedly yes. I threw mine quite a bit throughout the summer last year, and it's still plenty overstable. Maybe everyone else is playing daily on heavily wooded parking lots.

I prefer to carry both a Ti Zone and a decently beat-in JB Zone, but get along just fine with only one or the other. A fresh JB seems to split the difference pretty well.

My first JB has been in the bag for probably 150 rounds or so. It's the disc I use the most for upshots, and for short overstable backhand drives. It holds straighter for longer compared to my Titanium, but I certainly wouldn't call it "pretty straight." It is still an overstable approach disc, just less so than premium Zones.

My Ti Zone still flies basically like new. I prefer it for that extra bit of wind-fighting stability and/or if I need to forehand something longer than 150'. The JB certainly has enough stability for flick shots too, but I'm very backhand dominant so my forehand is pretty ugly and torquey. The Ti neutralizes my bad form better than the JB.
