Wink What is the best Putt/Approach disc?

What is the best Putt / Approach in your opinion, I know there are different variables, but which is the best disc overall. Secondly, out of the Innova Polecat and the Innova Aviar, which is the better disc? My disc budy and I are having a debate on the two, I say the Polecat is for children and Aviar is clearly better ... thanks!!

"Better?" "Best?" Hmmm... Must be troll.

Champ Boss for approaching (FH obviously), and Champ Boss for putting.

A nice Z Nuke would also suffice.

This is about the most difficult thing to quantify in the game. What makes a disc better than another? Why is this disc the best?

The best disc for me might clearly be a poor disc for you due to differing play styles and pier levels. Harps are my favorite approach disc, but I like a shallow more neutral disc as my putter, like an Atom.

You may like a more neutral disc to approch, and hugely deep putter, and that's fine too.

There is no best putter out there, just what is best for you.

But if I was asked to bag a Polecat or Aviar, I don't use either a ton, but find that the Polecat is a better approach disc and can die more due to its floaty nauture, but the Aviar is a better in the circle putter.

I'm partial to upside down Glow Firebirds, but this is solid advice.

If you actually consider the Polecat a kids' disc, your friend is right and needs to make better choices in friends.

You guys are overthinking this.

Champ Aviars of various varieties (Tanks, P&A, BB in that order) are the best approach putters.
Aviars are better than Polecats for golfing. Polecats are cooler than Aviars if you can throw them well.

I use Aviar variants for all putting and upshots(except my sonic), so FOR ME, it's the aviar. I never really liked the polecat. But what works for me might not work for you. Just a matter of preference

You're going to get a TON of answers...the real answer is "Which disc you throw the best" BUT ....the REAL real answer is

approach discs

Slower Speed/Lower Glide
RDG Serpent - stable 2/2/0/1
Element Lithium - slightly overstable 2/2/0/2
RDG Scale - overstable 2/2/0/2.5

Avg speed/Avg Glide
A billion putters....any normal putter that is stable (not over or under stable)

Faster putter/Decent glide
Axiom Proxy - slightly understable
MVP Atom - stable
Axiom Envy - slightly overstable
Westside Hard - overstable
Prodiscus Jokeri - overstable
Discraft Zone - overstable (less glide)
