Review: The Discraft Challenger FLX makes a fantastic driving and approaching putter. I am a big fan of the flx plastic due to its long life of its flexibility and durability. The plastic is very grippy and you can really snap the disc without out it getting all upset. Some say its overstable, however in my experience it is simply very stable, it wont flip but it wont hyzer out of an annie or straight either. I highly recomend this as a controll driver for all levels,

Its a brilliant controll disc.

Review: I have a 170 fairly beat Challenger FLX. Even with months of use it still remains very stable to a little overstable. I think this is a good disc for both putting and short drives. In regard to putting, the thing I like most about it is it has good grip which provides consistent release on all putts. It is predictable and glides well on putts as well with a little fade at the end (new will have more fade). I really like this disc for short drives as it resists turning over and usually goes a little farther than I planned dropping pretty straight at the end. I have to release it anhyzer for an S-curve 200' and under. The only negative aspect about this disc is that the wind can catch this FLX disc on short drives and throw it off a little. Bottom line, I would recommend this to someone looking for a good solid putter and a straight approach disc (when broken in) with a comfortable grip.

Review: My first impression of the FLX challenger is WOW. I've been looking for a good consistent putter for a while now and thought I had it in the Aviar P&A, but the aviar never felt 100% right (it is a great disc though). Now I don't know if the FLX challenger is 100% or not but after only throwing it for 2 rounds I am thinking of taking the aviar out. I still like the aviar better for anything inside 10 ft., but outside 10 ft. the flx challenger does an amazing job. This disc is an amazing approach and long putting disc. also it is my understanding that the flx challenger is a little less overstable than the other versions allowing it to fly dead straight when needed. another bonus of this disc is it is a great catch disc if you need to warm up or just feel like playing catch.

Review: Great this plastic stick to your hand and to the chains ! Slightly overstable so it allows long approach with straight flight or left turns

Have nice flights !
