Similar to a Pig?

Postby NateTimmerman » Sun Apr 12, 2009 7:07 pm

I like throwing a pig sidearm but I wish it came in a more durable plastic. Is there a discraft disc that is pretty similar to the pig that comes in a more durable plastic than innova's pro plastic? (i know nothing about discraft discs)

ESP Zone I'd say.
I play the game, but I don't keep score. I can't win or lose.

I like the FLX Drone for shorter flick shots

esp zone is almost a perfect match to a pig. zone skips a little more, but flight wise i would say identical.

If you can find a FLX Drone, I think it would be better overall, but the Zone is a pretty spot on match. Drone would get a little more D and be a little more reliable in the wind.

I use both a Pig and a Zone, but they work better for different shots, pretty much complimenting each other. The Zone rules for short range slight turnover two fingers. I dont care for putting with the Zone.

Does the Drone have more fade at the end of its flight?...the thing i like about the Pig is I can throw it straight 215 feet with maybe 70%-80% effort and it holds a straight line and it comes almost straight down with barely any fade at all. The problem is when I try to throw the pig 240+ because I sometimes turn it over. Would the the 240+ be the situation where the Drone would be better than the Zone?

I throw the zone for any shot that is under 275 and needs to finish with fade. I also throw the flx drone for similar shots but for distances up to 320. both discs are killer for flex shots and wind fighting, short extreme hyzer chip shots, skip shots, side arm, you name a utility shot for an overstable disc. The zone seems more controlable for shorter shots. If you were to get both you would not be disappointed.

I picked up a zone about a month ago and I am definitely impressed with this disc. I think just today I used it for about every shot freburg listed. I would say it will definitely be staying in my bag for quite some time.
