I have a few,

I've noticed the flight of the Tour Series Z Swirl is very, very close to that of the 4X run. They are flat to slight puddle top, amazing throwers

Looks like I’m joining team zone. Found this at piag for $7. I’ve never fondled this z flx plastic but man it’s the perfect flex for an approach disc imo. Not thrilled that this thing is the color of dirt and grass but whatever.

Question for you zone throwers - is there a low profile, neutral / us approach disc you pair with the zone that comes in this fantastic z flx plastic?

Unfortunately there isn't. Besides the zone the only putters I know of that come in the zflx are Challenger and ringer gt. While the ringer gt is low profile but it's on the os side of things. For what's it worth I pair my z zone with a pro d zone. Over time the pro d will work in to a low profile us disc.

So tell me the differences between Rubber Blend, Putter Blend, Crazy Tough, Jawbreaker, Pro-D and D-Line.

Not sure about the plastic... but the Gateway Chief is pretty straight neutral and feels similar to a zone and the Gateway Shaman is quite flippy and feels zone-esque. You may be able to call or email Gateway and them have a similar plastic option.

Asking you zone experts; How does the stability of regular ESP compare to the 2018 Tour Series Swirl? Is there much difference flight wise?

A fisherman gave me a flat M5, glow 2019 European Open! Anyone compared one of these to a flat Z Zone? They are very similar but the M5 has a better feel. Yes, the M5 is a midrange on paper...

M1? Maybe MD5.

I'm guessing it's a Discmania MD5 which is similar to a Gator. I've only throw a Gator not an MD5. Flight will be similar to a Zone if you like the feel go for it.

Except that Gators have longer distance potential. They float further and aren't as easy to range at shorter distances.

Agreed, I know plenty of people who throw MD5's and Gators though. Not a bad disc just a bit different. I honestly like the feel of the Zone way more though. Whatever, different strokes.
