That is unfortunate. Both of my PM Zones have slight puddle tops and feel about as great as any good zone. I have a black one and a neon reddish pink.

Perhaps the day glo batch were anomalies? Are people noticing domey results in other colors outside of the day glo-like color?

Dark orange one is board flat, where as the lighter orange one has the very microdome to it. Both are max weight and bought from same shipment. One was stickered with weight and other was pen'd for whatever thats worth.

I don't like puddle tops, and haven't had any success trying to flatten them out...but it's easy to turn those puddles into slight domes. Just did it to a Colorshift over the weekend using the boiling water method.

Yeah I am the opposite, I love the way the flight plate starts to sink in after a few years of use. I just had some success fixing the weird dome on the worst Zone, and one of the others I’m trying to convert to a slight puddle. I just wish they’d have come that way, it feels dirty manipulating discs like that.

I love my esp puddle top zone. Super stable and that's what I I think we all love about the zone is it's overstability. I throw it on 90% of my upshots even when I don't need something that stable it just brings me joy when I throw it.

Boiling water and multiple cooling techniques aren’t working. They will hold for a while, but bounce right back as soon as the temperature changes. Aside from that disappointment, my weirdo Zone flies okay. A hearty fade, and just a hint of instability on torqued shots, exactly what I expected.

But who only wants to bag 2 throwing putters!?

I LOVE rolling with:
ESP Zone > Neutron Soft Envy > Neutron Envy > Neutron Soft Proxy

Winter golf short tees those 4 discs cover 90% of my tee shots. Have a teebird and a OS utility fairway in the bag too just in case, but putter shots all winter is the way to live.

I can maybe see wanting something between an ESP Zone and a N Soft Envy, but I find that the N Soft Envies have enough fade on them to hit most shots a N Envy is a little too straight for. Zone on the end of the cycle when you really need to throw a brick disguised as a frisbee.

You could use the oven method. It works much better than the boiling water. I just did one a few days ago and it is still perfect

Weird, my N Envy is actually a tick more stable than my N Soft Envy. I've only got one of each (plus an Eclipse Envy and a small stack of Electrons), so maybe one of mine is abnormal. All three of my premium plastic Envies fill basically the same slot in slightly different ways though, so I don't typically bag more than one of them. I kind of wish they were more different so that I had an excuse to bag more Envies!

That surprises me. I've had about 4 or 5 of each and all of the N Soft Envies fly more OS than my 4 or 5 N Envies. Could be weight parting line height causing the discrepancy.

My N Envies and N Soft Envies are definitely different enough from one another to justify carrying one of each plus a Proxy.
