Review: This is one of my favorite discs. I really like the Buzz, and I
bought the Tracker because of reviews saying that it is a longer range Buzz.
I totally agree with this, for about the first 75% of its flight, but it
fades harder at the end. It is also good for long hyzers where you don't
want it to hyzer very hard too quickly, where a Buzz may tend to flip up to
straight and not hyzer as much as you wanted.
For me, it goes about 40 ft further than a Buzz. Very accurate disc.
I have the Players Cup edition, and have not thrown the regular run yet.
The rim feels a lot like a Champ Leopard to me, although slightly
wider, but it is a much more stable disc than a Leopard. With its
narrower rim I am constantly surprised how far this disc flies. Its
best characteristic - it isn't as nose-up sensitive as most wide rim
All in all, the Z Tracker is the best control driver I've used for
forehand. I debated all summer long about using only one driver and
one putter for a few rounds. I couldn't decide on a driver until I
tried the Z Tracker. I threw two rounds on windy days, and the
Tracker handled the wind very nicely - very surprising.
The Tracker does not have a "notch" like Eagle Xs, Gazelles or
Teebirds, but I feel it flies as well or better than any of those
discs, and is just as stable.
To me the Z Tracker is the perfect stable complement to the
understable Champ Leopard.

Review: I got a Z Tracker to hopefully replace my Star TL, since I
don't care for Star plastic - too slippery for me. I have been very
impressed with the Tracker. I don't have to be as careful not to
turn it over as I had to be with the TL - it handles as much forearm
snap as I can give it. Thrown slightly hyzer it will turn over a bit
to flat, then moderately fade. My Z Tracker does fade more than my
TL, but that fade isn't as far, since its glide is a bit less than a
TL's. My Champ Teebird fades far more than my Z Tracker.

Review: I bought one of the 2005 Player Cup edition Z-Trackers based
on a review I read claiming it had midrange like characteristics with
driver distance. The first day I used it on the course I was
instantly impressed. It is a very easy disc to throw and holds any
line you give it. I use it to throw straight at the basket on holes
I used to take the less dangerous hyzer route. I still use my CFR
Wraith for hole 400+ but the accuracy from the Tracker is unmatched
in my opinion.
I also threw my first ACE with this disc!
