Well Discraft does not use speed 1 and the Rattler and Putt'er are speed 1 discs as they are slow like Innova Lid putters and Sonic speed discs.

I use a Discraft Z Putt’r in that slot. Unfortunately it is only currently produced in X Soft which beats in quickly. It has a beefier rim than the traditional lids but I find it much more comfortable in the hand. I personally feel it’s too deep for putting but if you want to give it a safe bid from outside you’re putting range it’s hard to beat a slow floater.

It is but is so deep I have trouble using the mold, I wanted a disc with a rounded edge but in a Pole Cat height disc. I was never a fan of the corner that the Pole Cat had from top to edge.

Yes they did make for first Run, a regular modern Pro D then after that they made a First Run Soft X as that came out as a putter plastic at the time.

Yeah the Soft X is odd for such a disc, I had found the closest disc to a rounded nose low profile lid is not a lid but flies like one for me is the Magnet mold in plastics Pro D and Jawbreaker at max weight, or near that. However I use a different putt style with the Magnet then I do with the lid type discs with Index finger, other then that the putting is the same.

Oh, I thought it was a danger putt type disc or a longer beyond 30 feet approach putting disc. As a catch disc in lighter weights 165 grams and under the Rattler works well for that, however I used to keep a 155 gram Wham-O Disc the Pro Jr in my bag for such a use. The Pro Jr is the old 50-55 mold discs or something like that from Wham-O as the mold is PDGA approved. I had a hard time finding molds outside of Innova Millennium in the 2000's in my town (I was not 18 yet till late 2006 so buying online was hard) except the Walmart had Wham-O toy discs and this mold was most popular along with the big ultimate mold though they did have Max-Flight discs that just sat there until they sold them finally just before Walmart got Innova discs. Odd disc the Max-Flight is.

I love me some UltraStars and other superclass discs. Hugely underrated for woods play! In the open? Meh, not so much.

I bag a Polecat... but not because I consider it necessary to have a Speed 1 disc in the bag. Go with what works best for you.
