Polecat for me, but recently I put an MPV Ion Electron in the bag to help extend the life of my Polecats (this was a newer random addition, but I'm really liking that disc). When I need something a bit beefier for my upshots or I want them to really stick I'll use a *Gator or 150g DX Rhino.

I was introduced to the Polecat as a 'get out of trouble' disc that had a surprising amount of glide with just a flick of the wrist. Lighter weight Polecats are superior for that.

But for 'throwing putters', i.e. putters that are good to be thrown off the tee or for relatively long approach shots, there are TONS of those out there. My own suggestions are the Mirage, which has a lot of glide but is very understable. The Deputy has pretty good glide, but is also on the understable side. And people above mentioned the Prodigy Pa4, which is excellent. I'll add the Pa3 as a beaded equivalent.

I was also going to say the Mirage. If the Mirage is too understable, the Wedge has a bit more fade. Both are fun glidey discs, but I prefer the Mirage in Star at 168.

I wish the Wedge had a bit more stability. I love the grip/feel of those discs and it was fine when I had a noodle arm years ago, but I can no longer throw these discs worth a damn. It's a shame cuz they had been in my bag for a long time. Because they are a little bit stiffer, they can be a bit temperamental for upshots. With the thin edge you get some odd roll aways on firmer surfaces.

Axiom PROXY - just trust me, best throwing putter - straight, glide, not too touchy, just laser straight. Plasma has great grip and looks nice - Neutron is a little firmer (but not firm) - and Neutron Soft is a lot like plasma just a different feel. 3/3/0/0.5 is kinda how I'd rate it. It can eventually work into 3/3/-1/0 but that takes a long time. OR Try an MVP Atom - similar but a touch faster and a touch less glide than a proxy and a lil more stable like 3.5/3/0/1 - electron is a nice baseline and works into floaty laser straight, Proton and Neutron are more stable in general but acts like a speed 3.5 Buzzz - great disc too.

PROXY, ATOM, ENVY, then more OS try a Streamline STABILIZER which is like 3/3/0/3 - of all the discs I've tried these throwing/approach putters are standouts as the best to me

^^^ This is the correct answer. Or use the super-beat baseline version as your putting putter, and approach with the fresh baseline putter. When it beats up enough it will be your putting putter.

I always like to have two of my putting putters in the bag in case I lose one.

Agree with this. I did a bit of searching for a S/US approach putter and found that a worn JB Roach works great. I putt with them so it's also my backup putter, saving bag space and reducing molds.
