Review: What an awsome disc!! I dont really use it for putting at all. Its become an awsome approch disc, its flys so straight and always lands flat...stays put too! I find myself picking it up when im 50 ft out or more, and i know i can go at the pin and not worry!!! In the right hands it will be a great putter, but i feel im better with a more driver like putter....anyone will lower there score with this disc....A+

Review: I have both the older stiff DX and new rubbery Polecats. I have been using the rubbery one for approach shots when I really mess up a drive, and it does miracles not only in it's flight, but it lands like it's gluey. I putt with the stiff DX one by balancing the disc on my right thumb in the center of the disc and pushing it with a spin with four fingers and it goes like a sniper's shot. They both have improved my scores.Two thumbs up for both.

Review: Call it dumb luck maybe, but upon throwing my Polecat from all practice positions in my back yard to my DiscCatcher I was hitting them like crazy! Even throwing in the dark I made 13 twenty footers in a row. Though I've only owned it for a day I'm already convinced that I've found my new putter of choice.

The Polecat has a nice rubbery feel to the flightplate, it's soft and grippy. The rim is big and flat almost like a catch disc. I really didn't think I'd like it but throwing it changed all that.

I've never been one to believe a certain disc could change your game all that much but I'm starting to believe in the Polecat. I'm used to Aviar's and Wizards which are fine but never gave me the success ratio in a single day like the Polecat has.

I'll report back in a month and tell you if it was just dumb luck or not. Something about this disc just feels right.

In one round this disc has drastically increased my putting ability. It literally seems to get sucked into the chains with its soft rubbery feel. The biggest difference I have found with this disc is that it does exactly what you tell it to do (unlike an older versionI have). Its especially nice on downhill putts. You can lob it up and straight and it will drop right in! Because it is soft it has very little bounce on mishits and sometimes will play in your favor. I would highly recommend this disc to anyone that wants to instantly feel more control in their putting.

My polecat is a 175 gram disc. This disc resembles more of a catch disc than a golf disc with it's deep rim and rounded edges. This disc can do anything except drive, it will go right if you turn your wrist right, stay straight if your wrist stays straight (RHBH) etc. This disc can even be a main putter with it's very rubberish feel and it sticks to the chains just as well as an Aviar putter(Innova) in my opinion.
