I'm guessing Aviar3/P3x type disc. Should be pretty nice. P3x has a large bead, Aviar3 has no bead. Maybe something in between.

As long as they don't phase out the Zone, I won't complain about having another overstable putter in the lineup. They've already replaced the overstable mids I like (Drone) for an "OS" version of a more popular mold (Buzzz OS), and I'd throw a fit if the Zone went away.

Do they have anything, stability-wise, in between a Zone and a Challenger? Is the Ringer? Also consider the speed difference between the Zone and Challenger. There appears to be plenty of room for another overstable option in their putter lineup.

the ringer would be between the the zone and challenger. I know MJ is an amazing ringer putter, but most people have trouble putting with them and us them more as an approach disc.

What a time to be alive.
Except for Nukes in place of your Surges, and a utility disc here and there, we'll almost have identical bags.

Though I agree with tbird888. The Challenger OS likely won't replace my Zone. Maybe Just windy day putting.

I'm guessing you're right - they have had a habit of phasing out less popular molds, and in this vein phasing out some stuff between the chally and zone with a flat topped chally would make sense.

I imagine it will be a flat topped disc, with a bead, with the stability in line with some popular driving putters and low glide. The zone will not go anywhere (I hope).

To me the focus compared to the challenger is what the magic is to the warlock. Also the Zone takes the position of a utility disc for a lot of people, not so much used for putting. But it is popular. I don't think there is a hole in Discraft's lineup for this, but I think there is a place for the Chal OS if it is a wizard like thrower.

Sunking put them up for pre-order with this description:

The Challenger OS™ is a slightly modified Challenger that features a "big bead" bottom rather than the small "bead" that typically adornes the bottom of the rim.

So big bead and flatter top.
