I never became a fan of the Arrow, I tried it and we just didn't mesh together.

Anyway, for me to putt downhill, I am usually guilty of going for it with my normal putting style (short arm with a little hyzer) since I am most confident with it. I feel that confidence is 80% of putting. If, for some reason, I don't feel confident over the putt I just take the floppiest putter I own and staddle putt it with the nose pretty down. That will stop no problem once it hits the ground.

i had a downhill putt yesterday and didnt have my 86 with me..shame on me...however i just use my E SS wiz...and held the disc more towards the front of the disc..rather than on the side for a snap put....i layed up about 3 feet from the basket..and the disc sank like a landed flat and gave a loud pop..

I liked arrows, when they werent in my hand. They are so uncomfortable for me to grip, especially for putting grips.

Yeah, the lip on the top side and the shallowness on the bottom really turn off a lot of people. I like the feel of this disc though for short aproaches and putting

If it doesn't feel comfortable with your putting grip, turn it upside down! Now the rim is like a slightly larger thumbtrac.
