Review: I think the swirl is the best putter out there. I feel the disc to be very predictable when putting anhyzers or straight at the chains. On drives or long upshots it becomes a hard anhyzer, perfect for getting around trees and into gaps. The swirl plastic is very grippy, sticking chains from 30-60ft when your on the money. Great glide and very predictable. I would recommend sending all your swirls to me. Thank you!

Review: I putt and approach with both the APX Swirl and the Soft Magnet. The APX thrown forehand up to 150 feet will get you the distance with less predictability because it has more glide. So I would have to say that I prefer the Magnet for accuracy.

My Review:
The Swirl APX is a small diameter stable to understable putt and approach disc. The Swirl version is run in a softer, grippier plastic than the regular Elite version. The plastic isn't as durable as the Elite line but it grips the chain a little better. Flightwise, I find the same troubles with the Swirl APX as with other APX variations, it's fine up to about 150', but outside of that it turns over too easily and dives off to the right. On shorter approaches it will hold almost any line you give it but don't count on it for long hyzers as it won't fade very much if at all. I do feel the softer plastic has more fade than the stiffer Elite plastic but it is a very straight flyer nonetheless and it will drop very straight on putts. Overall, I feel the APX is a great putter and very easy to throw but not very good for longer approaches and short drives due to its inconsistency in the wind.
