But it is sometimes hard to define. . Zone is called a 4-speed putter but Comet is a 4-speed mid. . why?
The Rattler and Putt'r are slow lids slower then the Magnet and yet Discraft and DGA do not call a single disc speed 1. Their are some putters from Discraft/DGA that should be speed 1 like other putters but they are not, this might send the whole Speeds of Discraft and DGA for some older discs up a speed from where they should be, example is the Avenger that should have been a 9 speed not 10. Zone Used to be 3.5 on the chart to keep it a Putter speed disc, like what Innova does with the Wedge still but in the new Flight chart made in 2018, the Zone became speed 4. Now take DGA, they have Speed 6 as a midrange and most other brands have 6 and the between midrange and fairway driver type disc, even a 5 speed disc from Discraft the Stratus is a fairway disc since mold has had from the beginning driver on the mold somewhere be it long range driver when it came out in 1990's and continuing into the 2000's or 2010's when the disc was changed to say fairway driver to reflect the modern era speed 9+ discs.
