View Full Version : Magnet Question
08-17-2009, 02:02 AM
I got a 169g soft magnet a little over a month ago and for putting and approaching it can't be beat. However I have never seen a disc so beat in after only a month of use.
My question is in regard to driving with the magnet. As a result of all it's beating in, it has become considerably more understable. It will now hold an anhyzer line till death off the tee. I think i have one of the softer runs of the soft magnet now. Sooooo if I were to get another one to use for drives would it be better to get a stiffer run on the softie or just go ahead and get a regular magnet? Basically I need something more stable than a beat in soft-ass magnet.

I have gone with the stiffer versions of the soft magnet for a looong time, and still use them for everything within 50 ft. The softies have more glide than the standard magnet, so they get a little more distance for approaches, but they do also get nicked up a lot. I intend to get a DGA Titanic (magnet mold in plastic similar to ESP) for approach shots, and reserve my soft magnet for actual putts. There is another thread that will provide some more info on the magnets, and soft vs standard.

I must be loosing my touch, because I just found this thread. I guess I have been spending too much time at the Water Cooler.
As far as Soft Magnets go, they range from super soft , to quite stiff. The super soft ones tend to be more understable, and the harder ones you find, tend to be more overstable. They main one I use is kind of stiff, but not super stiff, and it goes straight as an arrow, now that its nice and beat in. I use it as my main approach for anything 120ft-30ft. Inside 30ft I use my Titanic. They are the toughest of the Magnets, and once you beat them in, they go super straight.
If you want to find a Soft Magnet to drive with, find one that is stiffer. For shorter shots and shots that stick to the ground, get a much softer Soft Magnet. I have a stupid super Soft Magnet that feels like a pancake, and I carry it when I am going to playing a course with hills or steep banks, when I need a putter to stick and not roll.
