Seeing this thread also made me question if you really needed a super understable midrange. And I came to a crazy conclusion too. I don't need one of them either. I use my Wedge for Short shots and if it's longer I just use my Diamond. And yes I do know i have a Fuse in my bag,it's more on the Neutral/slightly stable side for me.

But yeah this was a really cool thing to try out and it really made me look at my bag a bit closer
Well the Zone is basically a midrange and the Trident is too! Though if you were to specifically ask me where they both fit I would call a Zone an overstable Mid and a Trident a FWY but only just. Yeah you shouldn't have much distance gap there.

OS mids ability to handle not only wind but OAT makes them far from pointless

A hornet tossed on a hard hyzer works better for an awesome and reliable fade than a fresh z buzzz for me..... i will throw a zone much shorter and a firebird much longer.... its still just all personal preference and this thread to me is still beating a dead horse It all depends on how much lateral movement i want.

Things I use my Zone for: Windy upshots, thumbers that need to go left, short forehand rollers, forehand approaches, high panning anhyzers, spike hyzers that stick, and scoobies that slide to the basket in mega headwinds.

I throw it a lot.
