Had the same experience, but with the Wizard.

Other would be the Explorer. Helped me come to the realization I'm not ready for a speed 11 + distance driver.

The obvious answer for me is the Z Comet. I never really understood how to throw a disc until I got really good with Comets.

My other answer is the Zone. Exclusively for forehand approaches. I have learned really good finesse and speed/angle control with it and will use it for almost any upshot from 70-150'. I rely heavily on my ability to approach the basket using a zone forehand shot. It's one of the actual strong points of my game.

Paul uses a signature Ti Zone now. Not seeing how that would be the disc. Comet Paul does not use. What is the other ROC like shaped disc Not the Wasp from Discraft Hawk or Meteor?

I don't care what Paul throws and it has no bearing on the topic at hand

I reckon it was when the Stingray was released. It immediately added some distance to our throws. More importanly, we learned a great deal more about shaping lines and controlling hyzerflips with those.

Just to correct any misunderstanding: Paul has only thrown a Z Zone in any video I've ever seen...

But a Zone is pretty solid as a forehand approach disc, and was a similar experience for me as it was for VictorB. (The one that I first started using, coincidentally, was Ti.)

Well some of the Pros may have said wrong plastic on Video Commentary. When it is a Discraft player commenting they will have the Z and Z FLX plastics for the most part.

An Aviar way back in the day. I was a one disc chucker, didn't think putters were important. Somebody gave me one. Putts were easier. Started shaving strokes. Began beating my friends. Disc golf became much more fun.
