Once I read your addendum, I too thought Vibram VP. They're nigh invincible, and have quite the reliable fade.

I'm a 300'-325' thrower and I get them out to the distances you're talking.

The new DGA breaker is, imo, a great disc for this slot. even lower profile than the zone and nicely overstable. Its the same mold as the ringer nut now DGA has released in nice plastic

Another vote for the VP. It is the heart and soul of my approach and putt game, easily my favorite mold. Try one out. Better yet, 2: A firm and a medium or soft (Or even better, all 3!)

Sinus and Jokeri are both perfect for this slot

I've thrown just about everything available in this category.

Zones in ESP are great. The mold itself is as beefy as its flight so they stay like new forever. If you want the beefiest of the beefy, look for a concave one.

The Sinus is not low profile. I don't even think it's anywhere near as beefy as the Zone either.

The Breaker (Rhyno too) is beaded so it's out. It's not any beefier than the Sinus.

The Jokeri, in Premi, is the closest thing to a Zone but isn't as overstable. It even skips similarly. The plastic is probably the best I've felt.

The Pig is another choice. Haven't thrown this one, but it sounds like it could work too. The thing that's different about the Pig is that it isn't supposed to skip. I don't think it's as low profile either.

Vibram interests me. I've never seen or touched anything from them besides shoe outsoles. Which of their rubbers matches closest to Let's zero hard? After seeing their disc online here I do have concerns ordering online that the disc I may receive may not be the most vibrant color. I play almost exclusively in heavy woods so easy to spot disc are mandatory.

None of them are real close to Zero Hard. Firm might be, but I like the grip of medium, personally.

As for the color concerns, if you order from Community, Disc Golf Center, or Marshall Street, you get to see a photo of the disc in question. They are getting more and more vibrant with each run.
