    Z FLX and Z Nuke OS Best thumber disc ever made. It flies 40 more feet for me than any disc I've tried. Fast, overstable, and a super slow pan.
    Doss Ti, ESP and Z Force My go to sidearm disc in Z plastic if I need to go over 400 feet. Not as much distance as a Nuke, but more controllable. I use the ESP ones for backhands, and mid range thumbers. The Ti ones at lower elevations, and for sidearm rollers.
    Z Stalker My go to backhand disc. At lower elevations I release at a hyzer, let it flip up and fly. Flat release at elevation, will do whatever I want it to.
    X and Z Nuke The Nuke is my maximum distance disc for backhands and sidearms, as well as short range thumbers. I use a beat in X Nuke for very short range thumbers, it flips so fast it comes down at an opposite angle than normal overhand shots, and is really helpful it I need to go over something and drop fast.
    ESP and Z Crank
    My maximum distance disc above 6000 feet. So fast, so much glide, seems to find that max distance line more consistently than any disc.
    Z Machete Overstable and consistent. My go to sidearm disc for 400 feet and under.
    D Stratus Go to backhand roller disc. Even at high elevations, is easy to flip into the perfect roller line.
    In The Disc Golf Bag: Midrange
    Disc Comments
    Z Buzzz
    So straight, yet can handle plenty of torque. Go to backhand midrange disc, also use for dead straight shorter approaches.
    Z Comet Chuck it at a slight hyzer, watch it go straight as an arrow. Furthest flying disc down a mountain. Straightest flyer in my bag.
    Z Buzzz OS Shorter range sidearm drives, and longer/straighter approach shots. Compliments my Zones well.
    Z Wasp One of my favorite and most reliable discs! Stable with some glide so it goes pretty far! I use it for tight shots and open hyzers. Very reliable in all winds and just a great disc overall.

    Jawbreaker Challenger Plenty of stability for my aggressive putting style, feels great in the hand, flies straight!
    Z FLX Zone My go to approach disc for sidearms and shorter backhand hyzers. So overstable and consistent!
