I love them for putting. I am accumulating them quickly to use as practice putters.... So far, I have been using the X-Soft mostly, I like a little softer putter for actual putting. I have a JB I just got and a Z-FLX that I will try out for approaches.

As soon as I held one of these the first time, I was impressed with how comfortable it was. Between the Wasp, Comet, and Ringer GT, I am now contemplating a whole Discraft bag......
The jawbreaker plastic breaks in to be really nice. The ringer gt is definitely shallower than a caltrop.

I need to tryout a z ringer gt.

A shallower Caltrop, a consistently flat and OS Rhyno in ZFlx, a slower Zone... sheesh, I might need to try one of these. Can anyone comment on their performance for dicey forehand upshots? Looking for something brickish and comfy for FH. I don't think the bead would bother me much as long as it's flat.

Could find no video review or footage of FH upshots with the RGT - anyone have a link?

EDIT: Also the Slammer would be a fine option if I could find a flat one in premium plastic.

I don’t think this disc gets enough love. I originally got it to use as a forehand approach disc, and it is perfect for that it’s plenty stable and sits right where it hits. I like it in both z flx and x-soft for that spot, but one round I forgot my aviars in my practice bag, so I had to use them as my putter One round and I don’t think I’m going back.

I have a splush putt, maybe a little more on the spin, but definitely not putting on a rope. It comes out so clean and is not too overstable for anything inside the circle, plus my long bids never went flying past the basket.

After three rounds with them my c1 putting is markedly better and feeling much more confident. Anyone else use this as their putter?

I had a similar experience. A buddy bought a Discraft basket, and it came with 10 misprint putters. When I held the Ringer GT, it just felt right. I made the switch from Caltrops a little later and have never looked back.

I use X Soft for putting, and a Jawbreaker (some Ledgestone special) for longer putts/approaches. I have a Z-FLX but I don't use it that much.

Love the Ringer GT for approach shots. I have 3 discs for approaches. The Proxy is for anything close to straight, a Zflx Zone is for anything that needs a hard fade, my JB Ringer GT spits the difference on these perfectly - anything that needs a moderate fade approach either FH or BH.

I actually used to use an Envy is this slot and it is a great disc. Problem was that the Envy and Proxy were too close to need both. the Ringer GT has just a bit more fade giving it some separation from the Proxy.

Z-FLX everything is usually more stable + less glide, even moreso than regular Z.

I’ve got one and it’s more stable than a champ rhyno for sure.

So a Z-FLX is quite close to "Zone stable" then?

The only truly odd Z-FLX disc i have is the Challenger. . super US disc, by far my most US Challenger

Most of the Z-FLX are quite stable, i agree. .but my BUZZZes are a hair less stable than my ESP, Ti and Glow

I have both and the Z-FLX is WAY more overstable than the JB - flies like a completely different disc. The Z-FLX Ringer GT is pretty much a Zone.

The only one I have tried is the X-Soft. Can anyone tell me how the X-Soft compares to JB?

I usually prefer the DGA flex or SB Breaker over the Ringer/Ringer GT. . .but the FLX one sounds interesting..and easier to find than the DGA Breaker here in Sweden
