This is easy. Throw Prodiscus JOKERi. Premium and Ultrium are more stable than basic ones. Do what Sarah Hokom does and flick the JOKERi and make the Finland great again.

It's a sharper rim configuration, but same height and rim depth of the Zone.

I have only thrown flat 400 A2s.. Learn the oven trick and makes ones if you cant find them.

All the questions seem to have been answered already but....

Speed: (fast) A2 , Zone , Harp (slower)

Overstability: (most OS) A2, Zone, Harp (not as OS)

Comfort: (this is personal) A2 is thinner, makes more dramatic cuts, for me personally I feel the Harp is easiest to predict/control - the A2 sometimes cuts and shoots more/harder than I'd want, and sometimes it sticks, so its less predictable FOR ME, its still a good disc but for the short range OS spot, I chose a Harp because I like the baseline plastic best and also the premium is nice, and the Harp is VERY available

I have 4 A2's all are about the same, I have several Harps many plastics VIP is most OS, then TP, then BT - hard,medium,soft are all similar but the Harps wear in nice and tend to lose LSS a lil quicker, but still great

idk, short answer is A2 is faster and more OS, Zone is a bit more aggressive, Harp has a mini bead

And then there's the AviarX3 to add to this mix... beadless, a bit more glidey than the Harp, smoother fade than the Zone. I haven't tried an A2, but from what I'm reading, the AvX3 is probably less OS...

Most approach shots I do with a putter. I throw PA2 for OS putter and PA4 (prodigy) for most short, approach, and putts. I just lost my 400s PA2, which was my more OS tee putter type disc. (when I say lost, read: I forgot to pick it up and it's gone).

I have about 5 Zones in ESP, DX, and Flex plastics at various states of beat. The zones are not much different than my PA2; I don't bag them so as not to confuse my hands. I do like the Zones fine, and used them for years as putter/approach, but would rather have a little less depth inside the rim for tee and power shots. I just don't like gripping/ripping the tall putter rims.


I'm considering getting an approach disc like the prodigy A2 for tee/utility/approach and maybe even putting.
talk me into it? out of it?

It must come down to individual perception, because the Zone is by no means a tall rimmed putter.

When high winds are beating your face on an approach or a 25 ft. putt, you will be very glad you have that A2. Today there were high winds on my course, and I was putting with my AviarX3, and it saved me at least three strokes in the 9 holes I played.

well, you talked me into it... ordered an A2 to try out. But that's the last disc I'm buying until summer! Maybe I can hold out until Fall! famous last words...
