The Zone's one of those discs that's hard to be "on the fence" about. Either you like 'em or you don't. They're a relatively popular mold, and a good segment of the crowd likes them, but many of us simply don't like that much overstability in a putter. It's really all about preference, but I wouldn't say it is "underrated" - it gets a lot of praise from the not insignificant # of players who throw them, but it's simply not a disc for the masses.

That being said, Almost any unpopular mold could be considered underrated by someone who regularly throws and likes it. In their eyes, they can't understand why that mold isn't as popular as a Valk, or a Wizard.
Don't think of it as a putter. I don't know anyone that actually putts with them unless into a big headwind. Think of it as an overstable mid or approach disc since that is pretty much what everyone uses them as.

Heck, I've never even seen one. And I have been in a LOT of disc golf shops. Including Matshall St.

They fly like a perfectly seasoned eagle and the plastic feels great...holds durability for a long time as well

Irony. I just started throwing a Surge FLX ESP in the past month and its fast becoming my go-to disc.

I have a Discmania Gremlin that I absolutely love. It fits right between my TL and my Lat 64 pain in my bag, and I've never seen anyone else throwing it at my local course. I picked it up randomly and it has had a permanent place in my bag since. I guess the gremlin used to be under the Innova heading and now their sister company has it, and I'm glad they do.

I throw a vote out there for the Diamond - most big arms wouldn't give it a look, disc for babies and senior cirtizens, but I've thrown it side by side with Rivers, and I'll take the Diamond every time. It has the insane Lat 64 glide and is so easy to throw. And the opto plastic takes a beating and the disc doesn't get uber flippy.

S-line TD. You can throw any line with it, it's great for longer holes in the woods. Very easy to control.
