Some Z's (FR, Opaques, and Glos) hold a slight turn really well while holding their altitude and gliding very nice. I usually prefer controlling these type of line holding turnover shots rather than throwing shots that flip. That being said, there are a lot of times where you need a shot to actually flip and glide. For these, it is honestly near impossible to ever get a Z (or even an ESP for that matter) truly understable. I remember a buddy of mine who was a little eccentric (but one hell of a golfer) showed up to doubles one night with an ESP Buzzz that he had taken some sort of rotary tool to. It was hilariously jacked up...but it actually flew sweet...when thrown at moderate speeds it would flip slowly and continuously throughout the flight. Anyway, we're not allowed to do this to our discs (if you play PDGAs), so for that reason I recommend an X. I would say a pro-D, but that plastic sucks (although I know a good old school player that uses them, and I can no longer claim they don't glide well). The X Buzzz will still take a year of heavy normal use to actually be flippy, but you can always accelerate the wear period (which I'm about to do with my X Buzzz).
