Yeah, no idea. I've only seen one of the new ones and I wouldn't be surprised if there was a lot of variance too, like all manufacturers.

Anyone compare the stock stamp McBeth Z Zones with the first run yet?

Guys, I have a 2018 Color shift Z Zone that is one of my favorite discs and I rely on it heavily. I like it so much that I want to try out the Zone in other plastics too. Does anyone have any input as to which is their favorite plastic for a Zone?

ESP. Find one with a puddle top and you got a shorter "firebird." Flat ones are great straight to fade. Got at least one ITB every round and a few on the shelf as backups/rotation.

If you've already got a Z Zone, then I'd also pick up a Jawbreaker Zone. Natural pairing, as that Z will stay OS for a long while, but the JB will season in nicely and fairly quickly. I typically pair a Ti and JB Zone.

Your Colorshift has the slightest puddle top, yeah? Mine did and it was as beefy as any puddled Zone. Only flat zones I've thrown with the same fade were some 2015(?) Ledgestone Cryztal FLX. That said, I prefer a flat Zone, and I used the hot water method to flatten my Colorshift. I think flats have more than enough fade. I've never had a throw that turned or stayed straight too long with a flat top.

Yeah, it has a little bit of a puddle. I love how reliable it is though. I’ve never messed with JB plastic but I’ve read that it’s not very durable. I was thinking of trying an ESP or Ti. I’m not big on beating in discs...

I haven't thrown the color shift Z style you have....don't actually know what that looks like. But I have thrown a few Z and a few ESP and they are in the same realm of shots. I like ESP because I like that feel. Been my go to for a few seasons and still has all the stability I need.

So if you want a different line, then Jawbreaker is a good bet for holding straighter but still being reliable as a thrower. It will definitely wear in but it will be a different shot from your Z. But if you just want to try another with a different feel, I can say ESP are good too.

The new Ti and ESP are nice, I have one of each. Both are slightly puddle and maybe a hair less stable than the older run Ti. Never dabbled in Z Zones since most Zones fly like Zones and I have plenty.
