It's was supposed to be a replica of the 1st run Magnet. The story I heard is that Steve Rico nagged Discraft for years and years about making another run like the 1st run Magnet, and they never listened. So he got fed up, quit Discraft, and made his own.
The Clutch is thinner in profile and therefore is faster and less floaty than other Magnet-family molds (particularly the ones made with spacers). I like it for its smaller rim depth (vastly better release mechanics for my fingers), ability to push through hyzer, and ease with which I can manipulate touch shots. It isn't good for underhand/lob-style putting, you have to make it fly.
