Z Force- super over stable Opto Villain or VIP Giant

2x ESP Force - distance drivers Sword or Trespass
ESP Force - beat for turnover d Flow
3x Z Tracker - overstable/stable/turnover fairway drives Stag/Saint/Escape
Z Drone - over stable mid Pain
2x Z Buzzz - workhorse mid Also a weak point in the linup. I've done it with a Core but you have to find the right ones. you could also do it with max weight domey Opto Fuses. I haven't had enough time with the Warship or Fugitive to really say.
2x Z Comet - finesse mid Fuse
ESP Zone - utility xXx
2x Pro D Challenger - putter drives and putting Pure

What say you?

Thanks in advance.


yup! same thing.

They came out with two test materials at one point, TM1 and TM2...

Pretty sure TM2 was overwhelmingly more accepted by throwers than TM1... so they renamed it EZE.

And then they dropped eze and are just going with zero hard and zero soft. Unfortunately. I love my TM2 pures. Good thing I was able to pick up a bunch before they are all gone.


Why the hell would they drop EZE? Lame.

I think they only dropped the name. I think Zero Hard will be the same as EZE and Zero Soft will be closer to original Zero. Just my guess. We should be seeing these changes here soon.

When did they drop the Grip Pures? That was the only one I had that I liked. Zero didn't feel right to me, but I've not felt up the EZE stuff.

Grip got the ax about the time the Optos hit the street. I think it was the last disc they made in Grip. I kinda wish they had kept it around it was a good plastic. EZE is nice to me because it is stiff like KC Pro and the waxiness on the surface eventually wears away and I have an awesome disc. I would like to see some other discs made in EZE/Zero Hard.

Z Force- super over stable VIP Giant. Period. So good...
Z Force - overstable drives and forehands same as above but more Villain than Giant -Eh... Villains can be stupid overstable in opto, GL can be too understable so its a toss up. Halo maybe, I don't think they've got this disc slot on lock down yet. Plus I don't think Villains really go THAT far anyway
2x ESP Force - distance drivers Sword or Trespass Nailed. 90% of your drives will be here
ESP Force - beat for turnover d Worn in Havoc or Halo
3x Z Tracker - overstable/stable/turnover fairway drives Stag/Saint/Escape/River - Solid choices
Z Drone - over stable mid Pain It's really not a Drone replacement but damn is the Pain a well rounded mid
2x Z Buzzz - workhorse mid Also a weak point in the linup. I've done it with a Core but you have to find the right ones. you could also do it with max weight domey Opto Fuses. I haven't had enough time with the Warship or Fugitive to really say. Warship/worn in GL Pain/Mace(maybe)/"good" Core
2x Z Comet - finesse mid Fuse Yup, you won't look back.
ESP Zone - utility xXx/Trident
2x Pro D Challenger - putter drives and putting Pure/Mercy

What say you?


yep

I've only felt up EZE in store so I didn't know that feel went away. May have to pick one up. Thanks Keltik

My friend who threw one said his very quick, initial opinion on them was a wasp with a surprising amount of glide.

Sounds interesting especially if the flatness with micro bead means at least Wasp type speed or faster because the added glide should push it farther alone so if it is a double increase of distance from the speed too -nice. If i don't hear bad things about it i think i need to try it out.
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.

Have you thrown both?

Fuse grips like a Buzzz. Comet grips like a domey Roc.
