Default Underrated discs

With so many options in discs its very hard to throw them all. Especially since they fly differently once broken in.

My questions is pretty basic; what disc that doesn't get a ton of love by the masses gets plenty of use in your rounds?

For me I would say the Trident. I don't hear of alot of people that use this disc yet it's my quintessential driver for 300 and shorter holes. What I'm really looking for is a disc and a description of why you use it versus another more popular disc. For example, I used to throw Orcs all the time, I thought it was a great disc, but it never gets a ton of love. Unfortunately, when i threw Orcs I knew very little about disc golf, so I don't know it's real purpose or utility if you will.

A second disc that is still in my opinion completely underrated is the Zone. A ton of people throw the zone, but to me its still underrated because its use is immense! Total game changer and I can't understand why its not in everyone's bag.

Just to add...a ton of local players around here throw the Flying Squirrel and the Gateway Scout. But why?! I don't know. Seems like maybe I'm more fascinated with relatively obscure used discs.

LOL of course, as i was typing that you responded FLying Squirrel? Why does that disc work for you? Why do you reach for that instead of a Roc or Buzzz for example?

Innova Beast. I used to throw it as my main driver, and it's still the farthest-flying thing I own.

Little to no effort involved with throwing one. Doesn't take a ton of snap, don't need a big arm. With a hyzer flip it stays low and straight, thrown flat, it slowly drops off to the right. It was awesome when I was learning backhand and getting my flick back.

I think the River is an underrated disc in that many people don't give it a fair chance. Lots of people hear how great they are from those of us that throw them, then try them only to give one about a round worth of messing around. It's a tough disc to learn but an amazing disc to have in your bag if you can pin it down.
