i threw zones for years before moving to an all Prodigy bag- imo both the A1 and A2 are more OS than a zone. The A3 is a bit less OS than a new zone but flies much more like on beaten into the sweet spot.

Slammer feels nothing like a Zone but flies somewhat similar.

The a2 as well? Wow.

Yeah, i threw the puddls top esp zones for a bit. They're incredibly overstable but they aren't complete bricks since they're tweeners.

Mortar, A1,A2, Harp. Credo, oh yeah and a ZONE

I like the VIP Harp for most OS and durable, BT Hard for approaches/putts BT Medium best putting I think Soft is ok, I don't like super soft discs tho, but I have one.
TP is solid too but not as OS as VIP, its not SUPER OS either, it will however hold straight on a power shot and not really turn at all, except BT's that are worked in. Pretty fast and thin, flat. good disc, I think the Zone is probably more OS though.

A1-A2 are REALLY OS, but faster discs and cut sharper, so not really more 'to the left' but more 'to the ground' if RHBH.

Mortar I think is closer to a mid, but has low glide so, looks like a nice disc, but ive never used one

Closest to a Zone in all aspects would be the Prodigy 400 A2. They are beadless and flat-topped (like a Zone) Fast for a putter with decent glide (like a Zone) and have dumps like a truck (like an ESP Zone)

As far as truly matching the flight, there are plenty of options. The Harp, Cheif OS, and to a lesser extent, the Hyzerbomb Tank are all pretty damn close to a Zone's flight, but I'd say the Harp and A2 really take the cake for matching the feel and flight of a Zone the closest.

I'm looking at any other companies.

From what I know, some include the sinus, suspect, and maybe verdict? (mid)

anything else as of late?
Why are you dropping Zones? The Z-FLX's they're running are "the bizness."

Anyway, P3 is a pop top Zone.

The Discmania P3? I have a C-Line P3 and a Glow C-Line P3. Neither are nearly as overstable as my Harp, which appears to be in the Zone's zone (pun intended).

My P3s are also not as overstable as my S-Line P2s nor my Star Aviar3s. The P3's lack of overstability was a major disappointment to me when I tried the P3.

Someone mentioned the DGA Breaker, can anyone share more light on the comparison between it and the Zone?

Wow! that profile looks just like a zone. Does the dome give it added glide but less speed then the zone? Possible more distance?
