Just throw it like it is. Or trade it to someone for a flatter one.

Usually a puddle top is a good thing among Zones.

It was packed with other discs and a t-shirt and a pair o shorts in a small box and the apparel have pushed hard against the ZONE on a 2week shipping trip halfway around the world. . .so it´s VERY puddle top.
But it´s very soft so it might "go back to flat" after a few days out of the box

This is pretty normal. I have a cryZtal zone that came the exact same way. I think it must have something to do with how soft the plastic is, allowing the top to kinda “droop” into a natural puddle top. I love mine and it flies great.

If it's too extreme, you might not be able to get it flat, but you might improve it a bit. Turn it upside down on another upside down disc (I use a small sauce pan), and put boiling water and a small weight (2.5lb or 5lb plate). I perfectly flattened a few ESP and a Colorshift. Never FLX though.

It'll lose some dump at the end...but that's how I like them.

Z FLX is what I've settled on for my bag. Sticks a bit better than the Ti Zones I threw for a long time.

Did I hear somewhere that Discraft quit making FLX blends?

I hope not. I bag an old Ledgestone Z FLX and an ESP at all times. Z FLX just hits and sits, but I need the firmer ESP for forehands.

ESP FLX is gone I do believe, but my Z FLX Zone is pretty new, not new enough to have 5 flight numbers, but I think they are still making them.

2 of them would probably be a lifetime supply. Hard to lose because you know what to expect out of the flight, and largely impervious to wear.
