It's not overstable by any means, but you can get it to hold a hyzer pretty well in a variety of wind conditions. I'm just getting a little more familar with it. I find the Pinnacle more overstable than the Icon in the Rival. All and all, it's great plastic, and a pretty solid disc.

Without knowing the difference of my Zone to the reportedly less OS Zones i still think the distance difference is going to be clear due to the speed difference and some although not much glide of the Suspect when the Zone has almost none.
JR wrote:Using the legs is fundamental to good putting. Check out how deeply the best players bend their knees in the beginning of a putt and where they end up in. Feldy teaches to use an athletic position basically meaning a wide enough possibly staggered stance to be able to putt from a steady base that is immune to the ground below and enables good powering of the leg push. Feldy taught people to jump up turn 90 degrees in the air and seeing how you land because that should be an athletic position. For me better results came from a wider and more staggered stance than came from jumping. Feldy seems to use a very deep stance too and i have too strong legs to bend down that deep
JR wrote:Climo under branches leaping forward onto his belly at EO 205 on youtube channel hyzernauttv i think was called frogger by the commentators That is way more lower than i use but there are good points being made. The arm needs to be at under 100 % effort for accuracy and consistency but the final acceleration for aiming and clean releases needs about 90 % acceleration to avoid getting the elbow straight which would flip the wrist right. While you can get way more power from the legs than most players do and some pros do it is not the only way to add power without pushing too hard with the arm. MAny top pros if not all of them shift their weight back to front. Pushing the pelvis forward starting bent forward like bowing down like the Japanese during greeting ending up upright adds tremendous power as well. They are not using leg power either so you are not creating inconsistencies there either by using the torso at a little under max power too. Legs+ shifting your weight back to front+using your torso muscles+arm is a totally different thing compared to the arm alone.
