I mean a putter (challenger, aviar, magnet) at minimum can be a touch disc.

I mean we are talking about birdies and pole cats and 86 softies.
Yeah I know it's not really a "touch" disc thats prob why it always goes waaaay past the basket. lol. Is the Birdie really in that class? I throw my friends at the practice basket sometimes and that thing drops like a stone. Also what weight would be best for a "touch"?

APX is another pretty good touch disc.

You can't really get a feel for how a disc flies by taking a few putts with it. Putts are more about how it falls, honestly. You need to try it on some approaches and drives before you can really tell how it works best.

Would my Magic count as a touch disc?

Been liking it as a putter and about every approach I can think of. I've been using it for all my touch shots and putts and when its off, it pretty much tells me that I am what is off because theres no drop, no fade and only turns as much as I want it to.

I would say the magic would fall into that category.

Default Thoughts on the Sonic

So I really like the Innova Sonic but I can't keep one because of a design flaw that makes them split along the thumb track as soon as you hit a tree. Are there any sturdier discs that fly similarly? I know there are "better" general putters out there (Aviar, Magnet, Wizard, etc.) so no need to point out their superiority. I'm looking for similar putters to the Sonic. Also has anyone else had the problem with fragile sonics? Thanks!

I think a polecat, birdie, or rattler would be similar to a sonic

It has a comfortable feel, but I hated it. My dad uses one occasionally. He replaced his with a magic, and a Hydra but they are not a close comparison.

Have you thought about the Aerobie Arrow? the disc is thought of as a joke, but so is the sonic. They feel similar.

What are you trying to replace, the grip/feel or flight pattern? As far as flight nothing is as flippy as the sonic except for an ultimate disc, lol. Birdies have a thumbtrac or Discraft's Banger GT has a groove for the thumb if that's what you want for feel. As far as flight, well by the charts a Wedge might be almost as flippy but a bit faster. A lightweight Magic might also work.
