The midrange that is not technically a OS midrange but a OS putter is the Gator. If you look at a Stud an OS putter, it looks like it is based off a Gator. I have a hard time calling a Gator a midrange since you see Innova pros using a Gator as a windy day putter and as an approach disc/short midrange both areas for me that I use a slow midrange for. Gator is a putter shape and can be in the DX and Star can be used as a putter very well once beat to fly straighter. Metal Flake is defiantly a midrange in terms of glide the disc has.

Ryan Bretell is deadly with Pigs.
Nice! I love the stiff pro pigs too! A week after I first got one, I went back to the Factory Store and got a back up. I had swapped out for the R-pro late last year as I was finding that the stiff pig laser beamed a bit on some forehand approaches for me as it beat in. Sometimes this is a good thing, sometimes not at all and I think it just got in my head. I saw your comment last weekend and it inspired me to re-bag it. I had a great round in which the stiff pig performed like a champ! It is fun when you pull a disc off the bench and it shows you why you should throw it more often. Now I am also bagging a stiff pro and a R-Pro.

Sorry for necro-ing this post - but can we all just agree that the "best is subjective" point has been made as many times as these types of threads have been posted? Can we just infer that these polls contain the following disclaimer:

"all else held equal and in full appreciation of the subjectivity of disc golf and the term 'best' itself, which of these discs are best for the following type of shot..."

Just cut the crap - what's the point of even browsing a forum if "it's all subjective, man!" Also, I appreciate the tongue-in-cheekedness of the quoted post, it just made me think.

Disagree.

Harps are objectively superior.

Nothing. They sort of meet in the middle. The more power or more fade, the more likely I’ll move up to a Harp.

I agree, the Wizard is overstable but it is more like a Ryhno or Challenger flight then anything else at least that type of overstabilty. Wizard's like the other discs I mentioned are that not that overstable for a putter disc. Thus when one powers up on the Wizard it flies more neutral in flight.

However Do not lump all Challengers togther the way pros do at first before they get into the discs in there in the bags. A OS Challger is a different disc and or mold from a Challenger and the SS which is a different disc and or mold as well.
