Anyone hear anything about whether or not DC is going to be able to step up production anytime soon? Getting real tough to find discs I want - especially non-tour discs.

I just asked the same thing over in the MVP thread. Discs everywhere are tough to find. Should be picking up soon. I hope.

Well I just picked up a misprint box off of their site last week. So I'm guessing they are producing more product right now it seems.

More importantly, the Zone is like the Swiss army knife of discs. It can be used for a multitude of purposes. I found it most useful for tee shots on short holes. Before, I would try to throw mids at like 60% power or a putter at 100%. That led to inconsistency. I would tend to underthrow the mids, and overthrow the putter. The Zone solved this problem. I throw the Zone at 100% power and it does the same thing every time. Horrible glide (perfect), no turn (also perfect), and it lands softly and stops. No skipping or bad rolls.

Today was the first time I'd ever thrown a Zone, and it immediately passed the initial tryout and became a member of my bag. Very consistent mid/putter that can be smashed hard and not even show a hint of high speed turn. It glides poorly, so it won't float off on you. Very consistent overstability. All I was doing was hammering the Zone right of the hole and it would fade reliably back every time.

The Zone works poorly for putting. I don't recommend using it for that. The disc is too overstable and glideless for putting, and everything I tried kept coming up short.

Great disc. In the hand it feels like a putter, but it throws like a mid. I will bag the Zone for the foreseeable future.

I'm curious how many black Z Zones Discraft would have to make before they stopped selling like hotcakes. I can't think of any particular disc and color combination that would be more desirable to the masses.

The next thing Paul and Brodie throw. Magenta Hawks? Put a dark horse stamp on it and it's a done deal.

Hmmm. I wonder if I can get them to throw an X Wasp... as long as I get 25 before they release to the masses. Also didn't Paul try this with the Krait when he was with Innova? Seriously want to get ahold of Bob and see if this works.

It΄s funny and strange that so many Discraft pros use black Zones..why?

Paul, Paige and Hailey all used black Zones. . .why create a market for something you can΄t buy?

An X Wasp sounds good! But you and I and others on here, you know, throw them, not flip em. Discraft is starting to irrate me.

Yes even Paul Ulibarri uses a black Zone in Z FLX or if not I forget the plastic version in black. Even some longtime Discraft sponsored Pro players were given the McBeast Pro discs that use the Zone and most took a black disc in Z FLX or if not they used a different plastic the took black due to what color Paul Mc uses and the discs are hard to find in that color since before the Corona Virus. The Discraft Company is having a hard time keeping up with discs due to the huge demand for Discraft during the period they could not manufacture due to state laws.

All I want is another Max weight or at least 173-174 gram Jawbreaker Magnet if not one in the 172-173 gram set that weights 173 grams.
