I recently picked up a pig and really like how it feels in the hand. That being said, after it leaves said hand it's a little less lovable. It IS good for what it's made for (spike hyzers) and for short putts with a tree you need to cut around tightly, but outside of that the overstability makes it a bit difficult. I haven't done much with the Zone myself, but I know folks who can make them do crazy things and would say it's probably the better call.

The zone is one of the best discs around in my opinion cause you can do so much with it. It is amazing into a headwind i was playing 2 days ago and throwing into a 20mph wind and it still flew perfect for my 200ft upshot and i parked the hole. I think the one downfall is the skip. I also started putting with the zone with or without wind and i love it, its such a predictable disc you know how hard you have to throw and which way its gonna go everytime

I have to agree with Wolfman, the zone is arguable one of the best discs that has been released in the past 3-4 years. It is very predictable, good in the windy conditions, feels good in hand and after release. Its a great disc all around and its a disc that won't let you down. Now if Discraft would only release it in Z plastic...........

the only difference between the two is that the zone has a lower profile than the pig. I LOVE MY ZONE!!!!

I have been using my XD's as my only putters lately and that lead to me wanting a something more overstable, but with a similar feel in the hands. So I went out and bought a D Zone. I almost bought a Ringer instead, but I'm glad I got the Zone. First day out with it I made about a 120' birdie with it! I also found it really good for a utility/get out of trouble disc, throwing it on short flex shots. I could toss it anny up and over or around things, and still get a fade back to the right.

I've been trying to make an ESP Zone work for me but I find it to be almost too stable.

^^^...yeah with you only playing for a year so far it way be a lil much..if you dont like it now i would put it away for a lil bit and then break it back out down the road...they are super overstable but they are great for any approaches and short drives that have to go left and nice shot flick shots

The Zone is a great disc in D plastic as well. Breaks in quite nicely. Had the same one in the bag for a year now and it's starting to lose some fade on flat shots but remains really stable and is doing some new tricks that a fresh ESP doesn't do.
