The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Tell me everything you know about Discraft's Z Glo discs.  I believe they only produce 3 discs with the Z Glo plastic, the Nuke, Stalker, and Buzzz.  Is that correct? 


Some other things I want to know are:


Does it glow bright and how long does it glow?

Do the Z Glo versions fly the same as the Z versions?

Is the Z Glo plastic as durable as the Z plastic?

Does the Z Glo plastic feel the same as the Z plastic?


Any other information you have to add is greatly appreciated.

z glo Buzzz SS as well!

I have all four and love them, stability seems right on with regular Z to me, glow seems a brighter than innova cfr too, feels just like regular Z.
Check for the Photon Glow stuff.
I have 1 photon glow disc I believe that I've never used...doesn't feel as durable as I would like so that's why I'm interested in the Z Glo. Does the photon glow last much longer? How long does the glow on the Z Glo last?
I have one Z Stalker. It seems just a bit more stable then the normal Z. If you have a black light, the disc will glow REALLY bright for a long time (enough to throw it and find it easily).

It feels like the other Z plastic to me.
Ok, so basically I'm gonna have to shine the light on it before every throw?
If you are playing at night it wouldn't hurt to light it up more before each throw.

I use mine for playing during the day. I just really like the way the glow stalker flies. It is a very helpful disc in the day when thrown into some dense trees. It glows right up and is easy to spot.
Z glo buzzz fly like first run buzzz
is there anything better about the glow stalker compared to the regular z one? (besides the fact that it glows)
The new Discraft glo is nothing like (no longer manufactured) Photon Glo...but is a tad better than the CFR glo. The best way to charge all glow discs is with a UV (blacklight) light source.
Go to Ebay and get yourself a UV led flash light... they are cheap and 100% better then reg LED! They are called "UV" or "Black light" I got two of them with 21 bulbs in them for around $15 with shipping! nothing better for charging up your disc!
Cool, guys...thanks for the info!
I have a Z Glo MRV that is a limited run from way back.... might be for sale if the price is right.... this was discrafts first try at Z glo. Never been thrown
