Default Zion Fairway Driver

Quote:
The Zion disc made by Latitude 64 was PDGA Approved on 10-8-2017.

"The Zion disc is an overstable fairway driver made in our overmold technology called 2K. With a good amount of speed and perfect balance in stability it will be a trusted control driver. The flat profile will suit forehand players well. This overmold disc has an Opto Line flight plate and a Gold Line rim." - by Latitude 64

Judging by the profile it’ should be what the Spark was originally intended to be, beefy but workable.

Don't understand why they are putting opto in the flightplate (and therefore the portion of the rim that your fingerprints grip). Why not put the plastic that is supposedly grippier in the flightplate and the more durable plastic in the rim?

I understand they're on record stating that this is for looks, not GYRO or anything like that, I just can't get over it. I mean you wouldn't put DX in the rim and champ in the flightplate!!

Maybe this will be the overstable fairway that they use to finally convince Ricky to get rid of his Felons in favor of a Latitude mold?

It looks like a moderate wing to be that OS but you could be right.

I was thinking the same thing.

The ONLY saving factor is. If you like an OS disc that wears in nicely to take a little of the bite off. So if you have a firebird that would beat in but still have a solid/sound flight plate to avoid major damage/loss of stability.? idk. I still agree. without gyro or durable rim its kinda weird. But, im sure itll be fine
