This is the reason I still have Patriots lying around, but I've been forcing myself to use leopards because I wanted something more replaceable. I never wanted to lose my Pats and pay too much for them in legend plastic.

I've dabbled with Leopards, but I simply hate the way they feel in my hand. Plus, I'm not looking for an understable disc of that speed.

Champion Leopards are OK. They're stable enough to hold a flat line on a pretty hard rip. Any other plastic Leopards flip over and never come back.

Disc I did not like but now I do, is the Magnet. I though the disc when I first saw them would be awkward and slow so I never tried the disc as a putter. Slow is right but in a good way a smooth and slow. Now I have 2 Jawbreaker Magnets both main Magnets while still having a old Pro D hard Magnet pre 2005 stiff disc in my bag. Instead I used a Rubber Putter 166 grams but that was given to me by an uncle as first disc, then a G9i Wizard 172 grams, and last a Soft X Putt'r 173-174 grams I won from a tournament in 2005. I liked the Putt'r best but the Soft X plastic concaved on the flight plate making the disc fly without glide so I had to putt harder to get the disc to fly, often going past the basket. The Rubber Putter was too domed for the high winds of South Dakota though I think weight had more to do with that but the glide was too much for the Rubber Putter.

All Magnets I use are 174-175 grams.

Relay. I really hated that disc after the first day playing Mt Airy during the circuit. Having to use that disc on a somewhat windy day playing a long hilly course... ugh

As the weeks went on, and it starting serving the role it was intended to, I realized what an awesome disc it is...




...I didn't even bother doing the circuit the year the Signal came out. I knew all that would happen that day was me getting really mad.

Took me a long time to learn to throw a roc (or any mid) well.

Comets - They just didn't feel good, and now the grip/feel aren't a problem.

All beaded putters - I used to prefer McPro Aviars but now KC Pros and Wizards are the ones that get used during rounds.

I feel like I have more examples of discs I liked that I grew out of, or that were just duds (or maybe just haven't won me over yet?)

Inspire. Bought it for an US slot. Didn't work. Once I realized it was just a seasoned Clash, I found lots of uses for it.

I thought all putters had to fade. Then I used my daughters Swan 2 in a pinch. Now I putt with Swan 2s...

KC Aviar. It was my first putter, and I never got used to how the bead felt in my hand for putting. Then I started throwing putters off the tee, and what do you know, it's great for that.
