    Disc Comments
    Z Lite and Z Avenger SS
    Z - Great distance driver that can be thrown hard and still go straight with a little fade at the end. On a course I play quite often, I was never able to clear the creek right in front of the basket. With this disc, not only did I clear the creek for the first time, I parked it right under the basket for my first birdie on that hole. This disc gives me the confidence I need to go for it.

    Z Lite - Great understable disc for turnover shots with a nice long fade. Throw it flat and hard, and watch it go the opposite direction of all other stable to overstable discs.
    Z Lite and Z Mantis
    Z Lite - This lightweight disc is my go-to distance driver. It's ability to fly perfectly straight with a consistent fade at the end has earned spot in my bag. Due to the lighter weight, I am able to get a little more distance out of it. It's not a very forgiving disc, but throw it perfectly flat, and fall in love with the results.

    Z - Great S shot disc that gives the ability to navigate through wooded courses. The ability to generate a nice S shot also means longer flight for more distance.
    Z Lite Crank SS This is a dependable lightweight driver that won't turnover. Nice straight flight with a sharp fade at the end to cut those corners. The lighter weight allows for more distance. Definitely more overstable than the regular Z plastic.
    Glo Z Undertaker Great, dependable disc that I know will always fade at the end, despite how hard it is thrown or what angle it is thrown at. Generally used for when I need a fairway shot with a harder fade at the end.
    Z Heat
    Dependable straight or slight turnover based on how hard it is thrown. Great for straight shots with a small fade at the end. My go-to disc for straighter fairway shots. This disc is the sole reason I scored my first 900+ rated round in my first FPO tournament.
    In The Disc Golf Bag: Midrange
    Disc Comments
    ESP FLX Meteor Confident and dependable disc. Throw it hard or soft and it will always have a dependable fade. A great approach disc to throw in any type of wind and a wide range of distances. This is my go-to over water disc because I am confident in its dependable flight path, and I haven't lost it yet.
    Z FLX and Z Buzzz SS Z FLX - This is my straight disc. One of the hardest shots in disc golf is throwing a straight shot. With this disc, I am finally able to throw a confident midrange straight shot. I love the feel and the results of the Z FLX plastic.

    Z - This is a great disc for its ability to go straight or a slight turnover or anhyzer shot. A must have utility disc. This is a dependable disc because I know I can throw it hard for turnover shots and not live in fear that it will cut roll.
    In The Disc Golf Bag: Putt and Approach
    Disc Comments
    X Soft Zone My go-to disc for the majority of my up shots. I can throw it as hard or as soft as I need and I will always be able to trust its dependable fade. It can also make a nice S shot, to help wind between trees and get out of trouble. Being a primarily forehand thrower, I never threw a lot of midranges or putters because I didn't like how the rim felt. The Zone feels great in my hand and has had a primary spot in my bag since the first day a Team Discraft member introduced it to me.
    X Soft Roach My one and only putter for seeking the chains. The softness grips the chains and deadens bounces. Also a great straight thrower. I love the soft grippy plastic. I have dry skin and find most putters too slick to grip properly. The X Soft Roach gives me a great grip, every time, especially in the winter.
