Review: I bought a bulldog 2 years ago at a tournament, because it was the only one they had and it just felt great in my hand. I used it for a while then loaned it to a friend who was just starting out. I just got the disc back about a month ago, and it will never be taken out of my bag again. 1 tournament and 3-4 rec rounds and my bulldog has been my approach disc almost every hole. It's a little overstable, it's slower than a midrange, and it sits better than a putter. It won't ever replace my Wizard, but it's my go to approach disc from 75-150' out The wind doesn't hurt it at all, I've yet to see it roll down a hill. It just drops to the ground and sits.

Review: The first time I witnessed the power of the Bulldog was at a Zboaz A-tier event. Barry Schultz set the course record putting with the one. When I saw what he was using I began the headscratch, and pondered the debate over soft putters verses hard. At the time I was using Omeaga Super Soft but the Bulldog was hard as a rock. How does it stick so well in the chains? First of all it helps to be Barry, but after I got a Bulldog I started to see the advantages of a firm putter. The small diameter combined with great DX plastic and dead weight thickness make for an awesome weapon. It feels comfortable in my hand and works great with the finger spring technique. I bought a stack of ten and after months of practice sessions they have stayed the same. The disc just doesn't change. If you are stuck on the soft putters because you think they grab the chains better get a Bulldog and compare. Barry and the Bulldog have changed my game.

I have had this bad boy in my bag for well over 2 months now, and 'oooh, baby.' I LOVE this disc for 3 main reasons: windy days, steep uphill putts, and the grenade! the bulldog feels like nothing else; short, fat, stocky, and very comfortable. the bulldog laughs at wind. when most folks talk about a wind-proof disc, what they mean is it works great because it straightens out into the wind. with the bulldog, the wind simply does NOT affect its flight. it's a very consistent short-to-mid disc for all weather. another great benefit to the bulldog is it's ability to nail the chains in uphill putting. as an extra benefit, the bulldog almost never rolls, thuis uphill approaches and putts are safer than usual. in fact, anything under 60ft uphill is within safe and easy range for the bulldog. finally, and this is my favorite, the grenade. for those not in the know, a grenade is thrown backhand with the disc upside down and thumb inside the rim. the disc flies out and up until, BAM, it drops straight down and slams into the ground/basket. the bulldog has transformed the grenade from a simple show-off shot to a valued member of my competition throws. bad drive parked you 40-60' behind a grove with no clear view? forget throwing wide, flip the bulldog over and bang that bad boy into the target.

in fairness, the bulldog has limited range and will not replace your favorite putter in most conditions, nor will it replace your roc like some have suggested. the bulldog is unique, and in my humble opinion, the best new disc to come out in a long time. i am also not a huge an of innova's cheap pro plastics, but this hardly maters as no matter how much my bulldog gets chewed up, it still seems to fly just as it ever did.

thanks Innova!

bugged the local supplier until they got the new bulldog --- quick review --- slow overstable flyer when used as a driver, no distance records with this one --- the interesting thing about this disc is the grip, the rim is overly wide on the underside giving a very sure, solid feel --- which brings us to putting --- the disc resembles a big rim aviar, and putts similarly; which is to say kind of quick, with good stability, but the bulldog doesn't seem to have quite the touch, although it was nice for straight out chain-crushing. again, the grip is interesting --- and the name fits the disc....
