Default Caltrop [Putter]

This has been touched on in some of the other Latitude threads, but I thought it deserved a thread of its own.

Production runs were released last week, with a few promos being out for over a month now. I got mine in the mail yesterday, and got to throw it a little bit.

The disc has a comfortable thumb trac, much like the the one on a rhyno. In the medium plastic, it felt really good in the hand, and I hope there will be premium plastics coming.

Thrown flat with 200 ft. of power, the disc will stay flat for almost the whole flight, only fading at the very end, only about ten feet to the left.

On an anhyzer with the same power, the disc flew on that angle for about a quarter of the flight, flipped to flat, and then faded out a little less than that of the flat release.

When thrown on a hyzer, this disc was money. It held the hyzer all 200 ft. of the flight, and was not a dump fade at all. It flew on a direct line the whole time, almost as if it was a magnet to the eventual landing point.

Hope this review was helpful. Anybody else try it out yet?

I have not tried it yet, and look forward to more reviews. It sounds like it might be a good driving putter. TWT (Time will tell).

Looks like the Thumtrac patent ran out, que the shameless Pig/Rhyno ripoffs.

I have three, all close to max weight, Hard, Medium and Megasoft. Haven't been able to throw them much yet aside from some backyard putts but it flies pretty well for those. I don't have classes on Friday so will probably get out and toss them around the local short course. Haven't made a Hucking Aces video in awhile, so might give that a shot.

For me the Hard and Medium Caltrops feel exactly like the old Ching Tanks. The Megasoft is a little different just because it is soooooooo floppy. I don't even know if I could get a good drive with it, but it putts nice.

as far as driving putters go, (ones you can really rip on and not get flippy) which ones would the caltrop compare to?

Pig/Rhyno/ pa2 , etc?

Sounds similar to how my Fossil Serpent flies.
