Default Z-Magnets

Anyone know why the heck these were discontinued?

I picked up 2 used ones a few weeks ago and they are a great addition to the other 2 Magnets in my bag. A bit more overstable.

Any thoughts?

I have one and I never throw it. They don't stick to the chains very well, and I find them hard to control. They also tend to roll when they hit the ground.

I personally am not a fan of champ/z plastic for putts or approaches in general. Like midnight said, they just don't seem to stay in the basket, and they're way more likely to skip/roll.

Anything within 200' is my soft magnet range, but more than that where I don't want to throw a mid, the Z has been working very well for me.

If you want a Magnet in good plastic that will stick to the chains, invest in a Titanic. Its the Magnet in ESP plastic.

Totally, I got a Z Magnet too and it rolls and doesnt stick but it looks cool. But I throw the Titanic now too and I love it. Still throw my Soft APX's though for turnovers and putts and I got my challenger flx still. I feel like I dont need three different kinds of putter but I just like to cover the whole spectrum. I got the Challenger for overstable(which you could argue is a putter/midrange hybrid), my Titanic for stable, and my APX's for turnovers.

Midnightbiker's posts just sound a little wiser now that he has experienced the Buzzz. It's just natural to be on the Buzzz and Magnet bandwagons.

I think the Buzz/Magnet/Titanic makes a great combination.
