What's the deal with the Zero Soft available at Disc Golf Center? Is this is a new run of Zero Line? How soft is it? Does anyone else have it?

have you tried a Judge? It's probably the same as the Classic Soft plastic.

I thought they were keeping eze and calling it Zero firm or something like that.


Zero hard is an old plastic available in Spike for example but it is still a medium grade tops plastic. Softer and less durable than grip line Spikes. So Pro (Zero hard) vs Star (Grip) i'd say.
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.

Curious
What is it doing well now that it beat? Still a deep hyzer/headwind disc but more usable or something different?


Good S curve D that is very controllable.

Would you like to lock that question, or read again?

Got a couple of each eze and Zero Pures in the mail today from Marshall Street. The grip is the same but the stiffness is not, which I kind of expected. Wondering if the Zero I got was this Zero soft material.

I would imagine that they are Zero Soft. although the Zero Pure I have from a couple years ago is kinda soft in its own right.

Same grip? Must be pretty different zero mix than in the pures I owned a few years back, they were super rubbery and grippy, like nothing else I've ever held since.

No I have not unfortunately. I've never been a fan of Zero as I mainly push/lob, and the old Zero was too floppy to work for my style, especially when it was warm. Worked well for driving though, didn't matter if it rained, grip was awesome all the same.

For visual reference...

Eze

Zero

I know that some Soft Magnets taco with ease. The Zero plastic I have doesn't quite make it there.
