Default DGA Titanic VS soft magnet.

I picked up a DGA Titanic today to use for approach shots and putter drives, and just looking to hear some more input on them vs the soft magnet. I have been putting with a soft magnet since I started playing and have no intention of switching over for an actual putt (it just feels like what a putter should feel like to me after this long), but thought that getting a disc from the same mold in a more durable plastic for approach shots and shorter drives would help minimize some of the damage my putters were taking. I threw it a couple of times at the course today, and the only shot I noticed a difference in flight on was a 100 ft anhyzer shot I took in which the titanic didn't hold the anhyzer line like my soft magnet would have. It actually faded out like a more overstable disc. I am mostly wondering if this is just a 'new disc' characteristic of the titanic, or if it is indeed more overstable than the magnet. Any other thoughts on the differences would be appreciated.

you'll just have to beat it in, i went through the sam process as you, the titanics take a while before they get the real "magnet" flight but they will get there

I feel somewhat responsible for Midnight's love of Titanics since I was the one who told him about them. But as far as the differences between it and the Magnet. It really comes down to the Titanic being a better approach disc and being made in better plastic and the Magnet sticking when it hits since its soft.

Anyone have any experience with how long the DGA plastic takes to beat in? It feels similar to the ESP, but perhaps a bit stiffer. I'm guess that it will take a little longer than ESP to beat in by the feel of it.

The titanic still can't hold the anhyzer line, but it is getting closer. Been giving it extra work on my practice pin to speed up the breaking in process.
