I'm curious how many of you throw the CryZtal Bangers and how you like them.

I rocked Bangers for a couple of years...Soft Pro-D 2 years ago and then a regular Pro-D last year. I liked them, but ultimately moved on to Wizards this year to see what all the hype was about.

I have 2 bangers is the bag. both for driving duties. 1 velvety blue for straight to turn over duties and an ESP for straight with a fade. I always had a hard time driving with putters until I found the banger. The higher profile of putters felt like it was rolling out of my hands. I wish they made banger with no bead so it would turn over more. I putted with them for a while but put a beat omega back in the bag for the added glide.

I usually hate when people get all sappy about how much they love a disc so I won't go there, but I will say the Banger is the only disc I have ever purchased that immediately took strokes off my rounds. I lost my main putter that will remain nameless due to the fan boy aspect. I went looking for a new putter and wanted to find a disc that fit exactly what I was looking. Did not go out and start buying names, instead made a list of what I wanted out of a putter and searched for a while for discs that fit. The Banger was the first one on the list I tried and d*** the first day I had it I could tell it wasn't leaving my bag. I will say it is not a disc for everybody. You have to be looking for a disc like it, some people will hate it. It fits my style perfectly. Here is what I wanted from a putter:

Overstable so I could throw it and putt with it.

Medium to stiff plastic (D Banger)

Relatively shallow because deep putters release terrible for me.

Low glide putter- I putt pretty hard and low glide putters give me less of a come back putt if I miss a long putt. It may just be my style but I also find they fall in more when hitting odd spots on the chains because they do not have the glide to keep them going when they stop spinning.

A putter I liked to throw and putt with to reduce molds

Something easy to replace if I lose it- unlike my original disc that sent me on the hunt to begin with.

For driving, yes; for putting, not so much.

Great putter.
When new it has enough stability (Don't start what that means discussion) to handle wind. A great all around putter.

Ive seen a few people using them.. I even started with one lol. Picked one up recently and it felt pretty decent in the hand, but I have no complaints with my judges so they are staying.

It's nice to see some others with the appreciation of a Banger! I don't want to sound sappy about it but I just don't ever see people playing with them or talking about them. I wish there were some pros out there that tossed Bangers, it needs to be represented!

When I learned how to disc golf a few years ago, my friend who taught me would play entire rounds with just his Banger. I didn't realize it at the time but when I think back it was very impressive for the course we were playing. He's the reason I got caught up on the disc.. maybe I should thank him sometime.
