Looking for some recommendations for a disc to fill the void between my putters and my Buzzz. I guess I'll try to explain what I am looking for, and if anyone has any advice that would be awesome. Btw, this gap in my bag is most apparent in the 100-150 foot range.
I love the flight of my Challengers. They are nice and slow, and just kind of float until they run out of gas and stick right where they hit the ground. However, I've tried and tried and just can't stand how uncomfortable it is to throw a precision shot with a putter rim. Maybe it's my hands being the size of a ten year old girl's, but it feels terrible.
I love the Buzzz but for me it's too fast for this particular range. I've gotten used to powering it down but if I want to make a run at the basket 125' out the Buzzz likes to glide or skip way beyond the basket. So usually, I'm forced to layup short and let it dance around until it stops near the basket. I use it because its super comfortable compared to a putter, power or fork grip no prob.
So basically, does anyone have any recommendations for a disc that is slow and sticky like a putter but with a design that's beefier and easier to grip? Thanks in advance for anyone that responds!
If all you want is a shallow rimmed disc without big glide then there are many options: Ringer, Zone, XD, Classic Roc, etc.
It is also possible a putter will work. Your discomfort may be diminished or eliminated with a Challenger (or any putter) with a concave top. A putter with a higher top (slightly domey) will feel very different than one which bows down. Of course with age many putters dip inward. I have relatively small hands and have no problem with concave putters but strongly dislike domey ones.
Even a putter with a deeper rim like a Rattler fits well so long as it is concave.
Since you already like the flight of a Challenger, find an old beat up one and see if it fits better in your hand. A beat up putter may be easier to control for straight shots or annys. Personally, an overstable disc is seldom my choice for short upshots.
