Flight Rating Category Value What Discraft says:
The Challenger is an amazin, overstable putter. It can get around trouble for those long hyzer putts and is overstable enough to take a good amount of snap on approaches.

Review: Did not see any reviews for the CryZtal Challenger (Challenger in less opaqe Elite Z), so this must be the first.

Love at First "Ching!" I had been using Magnets then APXa and had just started dabling with an Omega SS. But this. . . this disc. Man. My putting game has never been better. I liked the Z Challenger so much I scoured the net for three more. They can be difficult to get since they are only for special events.

The Mold A previous reviewer claims the mould is identical to Aviar, but I really do not see it and I definitely do not feel it. It is not the same. If I had to make a comparison to Innova these would be more similar to the Rhyno-- without the thumbtrac, of course. The rim is standard putter depth and there no dome to speak of.

The Flight This is an overstable putter, the Z plastic making it a wee bit more so, but that is ok. It starts out as fast as any disc in its class but it seems to loose speed more quickly and drop fast, i.e. no glide and very little low speed fade. While the disc is fairly forgiving with horizontal error, one of the main weaknesses with this disc are its tendancy to float if thrown nose up and fall very quickly if thrown nose down. This disc is also not very wind resitant. The final caveat with this disc is, since it is a stiff mould, it has a good chance to bounce off chains. However, those weaknesses aside, the CryZtal Challenger is very much a "I meant to do that" kind of disc. Amaze your friends and annoy your competitors.
