Default Element Discs Plutonium PDGA Approved and Now Available!

The Plutonium is now PDGA approved and available - this was the original proto2 disc.

Speed: 3 / Glide: 3 / Turn: 0 / Fade: 1

Element Discs is proud to introduce its second disc to the market, the PDGA-approved Plutonium.

This stable putt and approach is a versatile putter that holds the line it is put on. When thrown flat, the Plutonium will resist turn at high speeds but also has a slow gentle fade with a soft finish. No need to worry about skipping by the basket, as the Plutonium sits down just like the Iridium. This disc is a little faster than most putters so it is perfect for those shots in between putter and mid. Also finds a place in the putting game with a slightly shallow rim with small bead, which some find more comfortable in the hand.


It's available here - http://www.elementdiscs.com/store/p3...FIRST_RUN.html

For those who like the voodoo, or maybe want a straighter scale this is worth checking out.

Had mine for about a month now. It is a good straight flier you can put some juice on with a drive. Nice full feeling in the hand for those who like deep putters. The plastic is very firm and grippy.

I've done a good amount of field and course work with the Pu and there was very little time required to get it flying some great lines.

The Plutonium features the RDG thumb contoured top which adds a hefty dose of familiarity in terms of feel. It also provides a heaping dose of HSS to the flight. The broad top combined with the Voodoo's completely rounded wing gives the Pu one of the most "chunky" grips of any putter I've held. If you like to power grip putters you'll probably like the feel the Plutonium.

The stability of this PnA is reminiscent of the RDG Serpent. Great HSS with a gentle fade. Where the Pu differs from the Serp however is that is has about one notch more of fade. You can throw some dead straight shots with zero turn and a very gentle fade. I think the Pu really shines as an approach disc. The wing sits nicely in a fan grip and you can throw the disc with confidence knowing both that the HSS is going to prevent it from getting squireely but the subdued fade isn't going to put you too far off track.

Overall, the Plutonium is a fantastic disc for anyone that wants a pretty great all around PnA disc. I can now say with 100% confidence that the RDG top translates incredibly across Gateway's four putter wings. Distinctly different flights with a very familiar feel.
Wizard = Scale
Warlock = Iridium
Voodoo = Plutonium
Magic = Serpent

Threw this weekend. The nearest thing I could come up with is that for those of you who like the dagger, or gauntlet you may will like the Pu. Especially if you like the zero hard plastics. The black plastic on these has some nice grip and excellent rigidity. In the limited experience I have with the dagger and gauntlet this may feel a bit shallower and be a hair faster with a tick less glide because of it. I give those two as a reference, because they are what first came to mind when I picked the disc up. A very full hand feeling and nice top.

Element has some sick stamps as well, probably my favorite naming convention in all of DG right now.

As always, thanks for the nice, clear information you share out to folks about our discs...

And I have to agree - our stamps and naming convention are real nice

New plastics here:http://www.elementdiscs.com/store/c3...ent_Discs.html

These were run before the latest batch of RDG, Keith says ss to sss in feel. I ordered some teals to be a nice compliment to my seafoam scales. For those of you who liked the OG sss blend these may be right up your alley. I will give further thoughts when I get them in hand.
