The Ringer

For some reason I have issues with releasing a putter off of the tee correctly. However when i started to throw the pro-rhyno or the pro-pig it released nicely from my hand and flew how I wanted it to fly. I also use it as my putter.

I have started to throw more discraft plastic and I want to eventually switch my bag completely over to discraft. The only thing I have issues finding is that putter I can use off of the tee. I like my soft challengers for putting but I don't like how they feel when I try to throw them off of the teepad.

One of my friends told me that the closest thing to the rhyno in discraft plastic is the ringer and/or banger-gt. I have felt a banger-gt but did not like how it felt.

So I am wondering who has thrown the ringer and how does it fly? I know it only comes in d-plastic but is it grippy like the pro plastic is?

Agree. Use the best discs for you, no matter who makes them. Most people have mixed bags for a reason.

To me, the Ringer feels like a grippy version of the Innova Aviar. It is a really nice disc, however I would not change my whole bag to discraft because of it. There are alot of companies that make great disc...Putters: Gateway and Vibram. Midrange: Innova, Dismania, Discraft. Drivers: Too many to list here. However It's good that you are willing to try the other brands, giving you a better open mind and ultimately helping your game get even better.

Well I am not changing my whole bag just because of a putter. I would just like to start using a company that is a little more consistant and not insistant on changing their molds once they are developed. For example, when you talk about a beast, you also have to tell the person if it is pre-remake or post-remake.

I see. Sorta like a "FR" or "2FR" or "normal" Buzzz?

Ironcially, the discs from the one Flash mold probably have as much flight variation as the discs from both Beast molds put together.

Unfortunately, you aren't going to get away from manufacturers doing that tweaking and having run to run inconsistancies right now.

Well normally when someone throws a buzzz if they don't mention it is a first run, then i just assume is a regular production. But the mold technically didn't change unlike the beast or even starfire mold
