Review: The "Turbo Putt" is, as far as I know, the only disc ever designed for the style of putt it is named after. By QuestAT, Its got nubbins on the edge all the way around similar to a bicycle handle grip and a 1/2" raised swirl on the bottom that will accommodate hands of all sizes. Its rubbery as a blowfly that stops dead at whatever it hits. This thing is as radical in appearance and design as Aerobie's Epic. It has a flight pattern similar to an Innova Monster. It will fly predictably from any throw up to 200'. It dives like mad as soon as it slows down. My flight rating: Speed 5 Glide 2 high speed Turn 0 fade 5 What is interesting is the controversy surrounding the PDGA approval of this disc. It was approved on 6/4/07, then dissapproved shortly thereafter? Marshall Street has an interesting take on it. Apparrently the disc "grabs" chains better than anything else on the market with its little hand grip nubbins. So the "big" dollar disc companies got all scared and pressured the PDGA to revoke its approval of the "turbo putt". Collector's Item then? I think it is worth getting one just to throw.
