I don't think it's a node angle issue. My first Kitty was that R-Pro. When it got flippy, I switched to DX and immediately wondered where the fade came from.

When I used a DX for outside the circle putts I would snap it like crazy with nose up, and it would hold its line. Because it was so slow it still wouldn't run very far past the basket despite the spin.

The max weights Cats like to dump fade more noticeably when they slow down, I'd consider picking one up in the 160s as well.

The polecat has been lowering my score every round. I don't use it for driving or long upshots, just those shots that are outside of putting range to about 70 feet. I release with anhyzer and throw it high in the air so it straightens out and floats down to the basket. Occasionally I'll drain one but more importantly, my misses are always a short tap-in. About half of the baskets on my home course are on a slope, so rollaways are an issue. Not with the polecat.

Played 2 rounds tonight at a nearby short, wooded 9 hole course. I've been using this course to do one disc rounds with putters and mids. Tonight was a 17?g R-pro Polecat and a 168g FLX Buzzz. Holy cow! -2 with the Polecat tied my best at the course and was my best by 2 with one disc! Got a +1 with the Buzzz...it seems to like the trees. I wonder how my 150g DX Polecat will do?

I'm gonna have to give some more love to my Polecats!

So the R-Pro is straighter than the DX? Does that also mean it will turn over easier if I put some power into it? I've been searching for an approach disc that will hold straight even with a little bit of power unlike my current approach disc *cough* pure *cough*.

The Polecat is easy to turn over with any OAT. If it is clean, it will fly nicely.

If you want something, that flies straight, can take power and is fairly resistant to OAT check out the Serpent. It doesn't really glide though and when you first get it, you will probably leave things short.

It will handle power. It will not handle torque. Not sure what distances you're talking about, but if you're over 200' the Axiom Neutron Proxy is another excellent choice, as is the Nova. I was an Opto Pure thrower until I threw the Proxy.

Polecats surprise me how much power they can really handle.
