Not to mention, with GGGT, check out the ebay page instead of the website, they actually individually list everything with a picture and weight so you can see exactly what you are getting.

Yes my dad uses the #3 hyizer and the Rubber Putter as an approach disc. These are the newer versions of the disc used with DuPont in the plastic.

I know I use the U-2 as it feels and throws like a Old Pro Rhyno without the thumbtack rim.

I know I use the pro style U-2 as it feels and throws like a Old Pro Rhyno without the thumbtack rim. I did use a #2 driver till lost it on water because the disc only floats for 15-20 minutes. I now use a Z and a ESP XL and it throws like a #2 driver would. My first putter was a Rubber Putter pre DuPont but I stopped using it and gave the though If I still had it I would use it as an approach disc, I now use a Stingray if i need a domed disc. I found eventually a better putter after going through 2 other putters one of them I tried to force on myself because I won the disc at a tournament stupid Elite-X Putt'r. I now use 2 magnets one was my brothers old one, a stiffer D one that I wish they made the newer D ones like. I Do know my dad has a #2 or #3 Hyzer disc that he uses or used to use. He also has a newer DuPont Rubber Putter becsue he uses the disc the way I would, an approach disc.

Was at GGGT yesterday and they had a decent amount of these for daaaa looow! Picked up a rubber putter and another heavy upshot 1. The 114g ive been messing with is fun but the heavy actually handles a little juice.

Only tossed the rubber putter around yard but am intrigued.. Seems faster and stable at 150' and in but larger diameter with nice glide. I had a really hard time with the driver/mid selection though. So many of the molds feel very shallow and/or have large bead like bottoms.

Where does one start when it comes to building up a lightning bag? Is there a mid/driver to be able to clycle like rocs/pds? Without any true premium like plastics it seems possible to do fairly easily. HELP?!

I went on a road trip four years ago where the first leg I was with just my young son. I was going to hit numerous small courses along the way, hopefully as many as possible, and I decided that I was going to get on and get off those courses. The best way to do that was to throw discs that I would have no issues walking away from if I lost them. I ended up playing with just a Rubber Putter #2 and a #1 Flyer. The putter was rather stable, especially in their glow plastic, and could handle everything for me 200 feet and less. The #1 Flyer surprised me by how well it flew, reminding me a lot of a Stalker or Gazelle. It was not going to win any distance competitions, but it was very accurate with a stable flight. Since I was playing the courses simply to play the course, those two covered everything I needed and I did not lose anything. I had an MX-1 as well, but that was an unpredictable flip machine, especially after its first gouge.

If you can get a #3 Hyzer and a #1 Helix those work pretty well. Those start out like a Roc and an Eagle(maybe a touch shorter), and of course beat into a good cycle. Never liked anything they made that was faster than the Helix though.

Thanks Aim for the information. We ended up ordering (9) of the lightest glow Prostyle D1's and (3) of the glow base plastic D1's (not sure what it's called) it should last her a life time .
