You don't need to. But if you like good baseline plastic and beaded putters and mids, you'll likely like it.

It's a crappy knockoff zone that the King of China forces upon his people for "equality."

Is it the feel or the flight you don't like? Pro D or Jawbreaker Zones might be an option...

Newer OLFs are basically Thunderbirds, or are Thunderbirds depending on who you ask, and there is nothing wrong with a Thunderbird.

Baby Destroyer is a good descriptor. I like to think of them as Destroyers for people that have less than 400ft distance.

xcals feel like destroyers, but have no turn and more fade (more stable)
