Slowest Putter in the World

Postby The Clergyman » Tue Aug 01, 2006 7:13 pm

I am looking for the slowest putter that ever was. I have read the reviews and consulted the chart and am leaning toward the Putt'r. But I would like to hear your opinions.
I'm not asking for the best, most stable or anything ... just slow. So slow you could make it to the basket before it does :wink:

rattler, super puppy and birdie are REAL slow putters. The putt'r is slow...but not as slow as those.

**EDIT....Yes...roc_n_roll is dead on in the post below!**

rattler is the slowest that is currently in production.

next slowest would probably be the #2 putter from lightning.

why do you want a slow putter? hehe

I can control a slower, more predicatable flight better. I was sort of reminded of it when I was tossing an ultimate disc the other day and realized that in golf I had either lost or was not using my ability to really slow drift and park the thing wherever I wanted. If I could do that with a golf disc I'd likely pick up a stroke here and there.

This is a bit off topic, but if you like the control of Ultimate disks, you might try using Snap's new disk the Whitler (sp?). It is not really so good for putting, imo, but is great to approach at 120 in. It is more like an Ultimate Frisbee than a disk golf disk and is a lot of fun to throw. And, of course, it is as slow as beans.

Please forgive the description if you already know this.

You might also try a Zephyr if you're looking for an ultimate-like disc

Ultimate disc for putting

Postby Barbikes » Wed Aug 02, 2006 1:34 pm

Or - You could just use an ultra star or super nova. They are both PDGA approved golf discs!

speed = accuracy.

stability = predictability.

a disc like a rattler is horribly unpredictable but quite accurate.

a disc like a wizard is both accurate and predictable.

That's sweet. I can put my super nova anywhere I want to. What a great catch disc. Problem: Does it help to be able to hit the chains every time if the disc won't go in the basket half the time? I would think not. On the other hand, I know people say the wizard is fast, but I can approach with it just like I would the super nova and float it right next to the basket from about 150 and in (I use it for everything 200 and in). It even goes in this way quite a bit.
