Nikko thinks the Zephyr is the best disc made ever. It was fun seeing him do ace runs at the Scandinavian Open 2010 course at nights. Because i have issues releasing cleanly each time at power i would use putters for accuracy events. I've never been in all round events nor practiced them so i don't know how the Zephyr would work there for me.
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.

Discs with a rim configuration of <75 (including all modern, non-lid "putters") are not legal for accuracy. Lids are legal, as are Zephyrs up to 161.47g. Even an archaic lid putter such as a Polecat would only be legal if <=142.71g.

How does accuracy work? I'd had expected a disc good for accuracy be at least viable for putting/approaches.

Accuracy has no penalty for blowbys. Putting/approaching does.

Ah, so it's basically hitting a gap. Gotcha. I'd assumed a landing area was included, makes sense now.

150g Blizzard Zephyr flight impressions: a touch flippier than accuracy (160g DX) Zephyrs. Too much arm prompts a crash-&-burn, but a snappy wrist flip yields an extremely straight flight after the flip-to-flat and with more natural lift and tons of straight-as-a-string glide on accuracy shots. Good for anny-all-the-way FH accuracy shots, as well. Not yet tested for power hyzerhucks.

I've got to track down a couple more so I can use them for accuracy at VA States this weekend.
