I've been puzzled as to why more discs like this don't exist. Straight (not overstable) low glide putt and approach discs. Currently the Berg is the only thing out there like this. Lots of folks are happy with Zone type discs but if you play with lots of elevation and side slopes you have to be able to match the angle of the slope to avoid rollaways. Zones/Harps/Pigs/etc are tricky to do that with their fade.

The Innova Bullfrog is listed as 3 | 1 | 0 | 1 but it has that putter rim where it curves back inside and catches on your fingers when you try to forehand it. If this has a flat rim like a midrange I'm probably bagging it. If it's just a slower Bullfrog with a thumbtrack I will keep my Berg, it does forehand clean.

Default Low glide but straight

Bullfrog, Invader, and now Animal.

I bag the bullfrog but it is only in XT.
Invader is in DX, Luster, and Star.
Animal is in Nexus.

I think I’ll try the Invader due to more premium plastics but def won’t want to use the animal due to the nexus plastic ding up very fast think it’s supposed to be a putting putter.

The way Innova described the flight it sounds like the 2011 Ace Race disc.

RDG Serpent is a dead straight low glide putt and approach disc.

As are the Birdie, Gopher, and several Rhynos.

Those are the discs I was thinking of as well.

I love the Bullfrog and it's my main putter. I really liked the two Invaders I had, but a slightly more glidey Bullfrog wasn't what I was looking for. I'll definitely try the Animal since it seems to be hitting the same area as the BF and Invader.

I've been puzzled how the Tank has been around for decades but people don't know about it.

I still maintain this is the laziest disc name I've ever heard.
