This is a special version of the normal 86 Softie as far as I know..... The obvious difference is it is soft! Very soft - even softer than the recent versions of the Omega Supersoft. If you hold one like a driver, it will bend in your grip as well as hang downwards on the opposite edge to where you're holding it! It is a weird feeling! If you attempt to throw it really hard, it waggles around in your hand a bit. But once it has left you hand, the big rim flattens it out and it flies as straight and almost as far as the normal Softie (about the same as an Omega Supersoft). It took me a while to get the hang of this strange feel in the hand but it is worth it - on hitting the target, the SSBP folds up and flops onto the floor like a dead fish. I've never had one roll anywhere even when trying to make it roll. It just flops! I carry one for use in danger putts when a roll away could mean OB, a long long roll (and the several shots required to get back and putt out) or loss of a disc. Throw it straight at the centre of the chains and you (should) be safe. The SSBP is an even more specialised putter than the normal 86 Softie but if it saves a few shots here and there, it'll be worth having one! If nothing else, it worth trying one out for the sheer strangeness...... You can always use it for throw and catch if there's not a place in your bag/game for one!!!!
