Breaker/Ringer (less known) and of course Zone are exceptional molds for the right people. I'll praise all three until the day I die.

Some people want a Berg though, it's a complete turd in the air and dies like none of the former three.

Funny how some people are asking why I need an overstable approach disc... Isn’t this a disc forum? I didn’t come here to get lectured about using what I have , thank you very much!
Besides, look at the pros throwing Rhynos,
Zones, harps etc... ect...

I love my Rekos for most of my short drives and appoaches, and don’t typically bag a TON of different molds. But I’d rather have more variety in my slower discs than my faster discs. So Ho-Hum.

Thanks for all the recommendations everyone else though! Much appreciated.

Same here. . i have 5 putter moulds ( and two of each ). . but only one driver mould.
I love to throw putters. . basicly everytime i go to the course i start to throw putters for a hour as warmup, SO fun . . i usually brings a few extra putters just to try out

Moi aussi. I've been discing down from the hi-speed drivers, but still bag several putters, approachers, and mids. And I throw everything in my core bag at least once when I play on my home course, so those slower discs are not leaving the bag any time soon.

Where does it fit in between all these options in HSS and LSS? A faster Berg?
Before I used the Harp, which I find amazing but slightly too fast for my taste.
The P3x isn't HSS enough for straight to fade forehand shots IMO. It has a touch more glide and a little less fade than an AviarX3 backhand. I love throwing it backhand, but I rarely find a use for it on the course now that I have the AviarX3/Rhyno combination in my bag.

I dunno if it is because the one I have is glow or not but my experience with a P3x makes me think of it as a deeper, no "tumbtrac" Breaker, both in feel and in stability, more than enough for forehand.

Slow, low glide, and OS, can't go wrong with a scale for that slot.

The Disc I recommended: is the Chef OS, but that is a very similar disc to the Hydra another disc I recommended.
