I have lots of Zones in various plastics. 98.5% vary from puddle topped to a tiny bit of dome. The big exceptions are the 2018 ESP Supercolor ones with the Brian Allen mechazombie (my term for it) art. Those all have much more dome than the average Zone.

The PDGA has one:


Sorry...
I have seen other white ones in Z online, but my usual stops seem to be out of it right now.

DGA thread is typically very slow so I'll ask here:

I currently throw the hurricane for my main distance driver but looking for something a bit slower. How does the Rogue or Surge compare stability wise? For reference, I'm throwing mainly in the 375'-400' range with the hurricane. Just looking for something a tick slower so it's a little easier to get up to speed. I threw a surge years ago, and I remember it being more of an S-turn type flight (think slower nuke), and I'm looking for something that has a milder curve so I can hyzer flip it a bit without a huge fade.

My first zone was a pre swirly esp and it wasn't domey as such, but the area around the hotstamp had 'popped'. So it had a weird off centre dome and perfectly flat outside of the hotstamp.

Still an awesome disc.

I would try the undertow in SP. It was more along the lines of that type of shot. The Proline was too flippy for me, but the SP started nice and straight and beat nice turnover. I always felt the Undertow was the best neutral flying disc of the two companies and the Avenger SS the better US disc.

I have also heard good things about the Heat and Thrasher for that type of slot too.

Have you tried a Surge SS in Z?

I have an older ESP zone that is like this. Flat to almost thumbtrack along the rim, but then a pop up dome in the middle. It's my favorite zone. It actually flies very similar to a pro d zone, very straight and longer than fresh ESP, but then a sudden dumpy fade. It didn't start out that way, but has developed the shape over time.

Don't overlook domey zones. They cover that OS midrange slot really well.
