Yay! I can't wait to press one of these into service. With the heat picking up, my uncomfortable bag is getting rough on my fatness on those 2+ round saturdays

clearly this is discrimination against those of us with good taste who ordered orange ones.

I couldn't agree more. They just hate us because we're so pretty.

Let's back up....I have resisted the Jokeri because I am still in a relationship with my LE D zones....they are not at all as stable as the ESPs obviously, but very nIce.....I generally use them when thechalle ger just doesn't seem stable enough....now I've gone back and read many pages on the Jokeri....let's revisit this disc, I am attracted to the thin depth and it's general description. Are you still throwing them consistently? How are the sweet ones?

They're all sweet as far as I know :)
Basics beat first in to straight (no turn, little fade) and then in to somewhat understable. Haven't seen anyone with a flippy one yet altho they can become quite deformed. My most beaten Jokeri works for reliable anhyzers as well. I've only been using white basic Jokeris myself. I've fondled colored ones and they felt more rubbery or something. Seemed to fly similarly tho. I also have one white basic with tiny little blue dots that is close to premium overstable. I've been trying to avoid hitting any trees and such with it.
The premiums are quite different. With a strong straight throw they'll fly straight and fade somewhat hard at the end. Given enough height they'll also go a lot to the left (right handed backhand). I usually use premiums for long hyzers as they seem to like keeping pretty much the same angle the whole flight in hyzer.

Both the basics and premiums don't really mind strong winds either as long as you don't try anything stupid with them (maybe this high hyzer will get me there...).

Oh and I use Jokeris strictly for approaches and such. I have other stuff for putting.

Flight path of the Jokeri is about halfway in between the Challenger and the D Zone regular version when broken in a little but longer than both. It ain't as fast as the Zone but not much slower either but it won't fade out. I like both but the roles are different.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Never owned any Zones so can't really comment on those. Zone and Jokeri do have quite similar profiles (and similar feel) don't they? Jokeri maybe a bit taller?

Especially for FH the much lower profile of the Zone helps but out of taller (midway to KC Aviars) Jokeri FHs great especially in premium plastic. The difference shape wise is also the bulk of the wing which is thicker in the Jokeri. For a fairly hefty driving capable (excelling really) putter the Jokeri has a remarkably friendly grip that is a problem mostly for those with small hands and short fingers. I have borderline M/L hand with borderline S to M (har har) finger length. That reality describing pun is more appropriate than you know because in Finnish Finnish championship is abbreviated SM :-) It is the same in Swedish for Swedish championship too.

I have seen beat to hell and back Basic JOKERis that are dented to a point where any normal disc would be quickly disposed off. However none of these have been understable, and could be thrown hard into a headwind with only a smidgen of hyzer.

The ability of the JOKERi to hold on to it's HSS is mind boggling. Add that to the fact that even when new it isn't a meathook like most discs that are as HSS, and that it gets even straighter with use, and you've got one of my favorite discs ever.
