I love my Z zone, it has a puddle top and is very OS. But my ESP zone is nowhere near as OS. Is there anything I can do to puddle top the ESP zone? Or make it more OS?

I had a older run puddle top esp zone that would be what you're looking for. The new swirly esp zone are flatter and not as stiff as the older runs.

Most times, messing with the dome of discs doesn't change the flight as much as the feel. There are puddle topped ESPs out there. I'd recommend looking for one of those.

Curious as to how understand a Pro-D Zone can get. Mine has had enough use to just have a bit of fade at the end. Could it replace my Z Sol at some point?

I don't think it will ever have the glide that the Sol does. The Sol will always be faster and longer imo.

To answer your question, I don't know.

But it is worth noting I have thrown the same Pro D Zone for most of the past 5 years. It was very beat up when I got it. It is not understable even now. That leads me to believe that unless very warped our seriously thrashed, a Pro D Zone will never be understable. For reference, mine flies like a fresh Neutron Envy, which is to say very resistant to turn but little fade, especially when thrown hard.

I beat in one Jawbreaker Zone, lost it, and am now beating another. The first one never gained any glide but lost a lot of the hookup at the end, was a useful upshot disc that flew where you threw it but still had that Zone doesn't fly flight dropping out of the air characteristic.

My Jawbreaker Zone experience is similar to mshelton's above. I'm RHBH dominant, with a very sloppy forehand that is used exclusively for upshots. I like the beat JB Zone better than a premium/fresher Zone for backhand shots, but the premium Zone covers up my FH shortcomings much better. As such, my Titanium Zone is a mandatory disc to carry for me, whereas the JB Zone is a 'nice to have' disc. On short courses I like to have more driving putter options, so the JB Zone goes in the bag. Or in wet conditions when I need the added grippiness of JB vice Ti. But on longer courses with normal weather conditions, I'm finding myself swapping out the JB Zone in favor of an extra driver.
