Using a ZFlx zone for some flick upshots and loving it. How do the other plastics compare with ZFlx with regards to stability?

Mine lost a little fade at a time and then one day just started flipping wildly under any power. It never lost its fade entirely though.

Beat pro-D Zones have an odd, yet beautiful flight. Kind of like a beat DX Firebird

The ProD Zones break in to lose as much fade as they will. They become more of a mellow fading disc, then they just gain turn after that. I use beat ProD Zones for more technical forehands from those that go straight to ones that turn at the end. I really like then for those shots myself

Z-FLX and cryZtal are the most OS zones out there. Puddle tops always help dictate stability too. ESP, x soft, pro d are slightly less stable as you go down the ladder closer to baseline plastics.

The bigger plastic difference I have found is that my ESP will skip, Z-FLX will not and I know people who carry both for this reason. Stability for me is about the same in all plastics minus Jawbreaker.

I find Z-FLX doesn't like to fly at all. It's very dumpy - you can throw it to the point in the sky and once it runs out of steam it will just dump straight to the ground. The other premium plastic Zones I've thrown (ESP/Z/Glow Z) tend to continue to fly forward as they fade so they get a little more distance/skip. The only other Zone I've thrown that lacked glide as much as the Z-FLX is the Ti Zone from last year.

I'm using a Big Z Zone right now. I don't have a Z Zone, but the Big Z is about the same as my Titanium Zone and ESP Zone. Maybe slightly less brickish OS, just a wee tad, but no real difference for me.

New it's not much at all but beats in real fast and loses some of the dump at the end.
