I agree with others...the Rattler is a cool disc, but NOT a primary putter.

Maybe a Magic if you like that style of super-straight putter?

I'm not a big fan of not carrying a more neutral, modern style putter but if you're happy with how you putts, upshots and drives are with the Rattlers then you're probably OK with them, too.

I like the bag otherwise.
My sentiments exactly.

What plastic is the Eagle X in? I'd say keep a beefy one on hand for windy days and overstable duties.

If you are looking for a more conventional putter with sick glide and straightness in spades, try an APX/Reef, Dart, Ion, or the Magic again.

Really solid bag though once you figure the putting thing out.

I have taken you all's advice.
I have removed the Sonic (because I couldn't get a consistant release and because I broke it on tree) and added a Magic. I like it a lot. I still putt with my Rattlers and love them for upshots.

My eagle X is 168 Star and I have kept it in the bag and it has performed well. I have been experimenting with other discs because I am between tourneys and tend to mess around and then get my bag constant a few weeks before I have to play a serious round.
Here are my experimental discs right now:

Assassin (I have 2 and they are VERY long for me... sometimes)

Cyclone (not sure if I like this better than leopard, but I love the old T-pro plastic. Its an old misprint and has a cool ufo stamp on it)

Cyclone 2 (really liking this! I seem to throw it like a long roc, nother sweet plastic misprint)

I love the feedback I get here. Thanks!

I have no idea why a Rattler is "NOT a primary putter" to quote a previous post. I will agree that it is NOT a popular choice for primary putting but that shouldn't mean anything.
If you know how and when to use it and if you are aware of its proficiencies and limitations then you should be golden. Other discs will fill-in for the Rattler's weaknesses.

Magics are fun, especially in 150 class. I have a bunch of Magics ranging from 145g-175+ and the lightest ones are my favorites. The lighter discs emphasize the best qualities of the mold. It's worth noting that I might be a little biased because I throw all 150 class.

Do you keep the Cyclone and the Leopard in the bag at the same time?

I actually took the leopards when I put in the cyclone. They seem to fit a lot of the same holes, even if they don't fly on the exact same lines.

Can you (or anyone) compare a Champ Leopard to an X-Cyclone?

I can't. I only have one cyclone, its the old tourney plastic (I think) and I've only thrown it a few times.
