Default Innova Pro Polecat. Any thoughts?

I've been looking into getting a very basic putter that is slow, and not too much glide. Just something good for those 'Go for it - wrist flicking putt's'

Anyone else actually use these????
I know a buddy of mine found or traded for a birdie once. Which is similar, and we both shot some good shots with it. I like it because it's so basic and it just floats straight/ how you release it.

I will use an Aviar, and a Discraft Focus, Zone.
So I think that a super basic cat may be good.

Just curious if anyone actually USES them.

Thanks in advance for responses.

I LOVE Polecats. I used to have one that I gave away to a buddy that was just starting out. My putting has been in such dire straits lately that Im thinking of picking one up again and giving it a go.

I played the Ice Bowl with a guy from NE Ohio that used a Birdie.. he is on the site but doesn't post much.

The Polecat is the perfect option for the shot you described.

Pro is good but I prefer the DX.
It comes down to whether you like stiffer putters (for loft putting) or softer putter (for spin putting).

The Polecat is the perfect option for the shot you described.

Here is a thread about the R-Pro Polecat if you'd like to read more.

Every time I think of a Polecat I think of Marmoset actually... Very strange..... But I digress. I actually keep one in my truck. They're insanely fun if nothing else. If for some reason I have nothing else, I could always play a round with it, or just play catch. It's a great point and shoot disc. I beat it senseless so it actually likes to turn right if thrown a little hard. But, that makes it all the more sweet.

I used one for a year. The go where you tell them. They are not very good outside of 15 feet for me. I recently switched to magics. The are really working out for me.

Ok, yeah I was actually set on getting a GW magic, then I decided to check these out. I am not close to playing anytime soon since I am out of the country, but the first thing I do when I get back is get all the discs I've researched. SO i appreciate the feedback

All I know about Polecat is that Gregg Hosfield use it and one of local player use Polecat for forehand putting that was amazing to watch! It works great for them

I actually use a Coyote for that shot. I have never liked the way lids felt from the FH or BH sides, so I don't carry them. I used to use a Birdie as a Turbo putter, but since I learned to straddle, I haven't missed it a bit. I can still use my Pig as a turbo.
