Default Zone vs. Suspect for forehands in the 250 range

Go! I tried reading through pages on a suspect thread but couldn't find what I want to know. Looking for a nice reliable mid range and approach fh disc.

I love both these discs for the short flick approach slot. I usually have one or the other bagged for it. I am using them in the 100'-200' range mostly, though.

I've found the Suspect to go straighter, slightly further, less fade than the zone.

Not sure how that makes either fit into your game, but there ya go.

Does the suspect get flippy on longer forehands?

Zone. Most reliable FH approach disc in the world. The only disc I trust more to come back is a nuke OS but that is a hole nother monster.

Not if you have decent form. A torque-tastic forehand would flip a suspect, but it'd be forgiving with decent technique.

Edit: my response was to SH.

My Zone is my go-to, get out of trouble, FH approach disc. The single disc in my bag that I never change out for something else.

I LOVE my Zone! The lack of the bead makes it easier to release and it is more overstable than a suspect as well but not so much that it is going to die out too quickly. I have found it to be much more predictable than a suspect for forehands because of the over stability. As MindBody said the suspect will fly straighter and glide a little more but that was not what I personally wanted in a sidearm disc.

On a side note throwing a zone on a high flick anhyzer is a beautiful thing. It is overstable enough that it will pan back out and land flat but not overstable enough to flex. It is an amazing get out of trouble shot as you don't need much space to pull it off.

In my experience with a First run Max weight

More than a zone. It is also more susceptible to OAT

The suspect is way more workable than the zone.
