I like the Toro (Tour Series) paired with a beat-in Exo Hard Tactic for my OS approach pair. The Tactic is a tad more straight than the Toro for backhand approaches.

There were a few comparisons in this thread, but I'm curious: how does the Toro compare to the other OS approach putters/mids that are already in the Innova line up? Thinking about the Gator, Caiman, Ax3, and Rhyno in particular. I've been throwing DX P&As with JK Aviars and have been loving it, but I'm definitely missing the OS approach slot (always trying different plastic, so I'm working on a new, all Innova bag). The Toro sounds great, but a little too beefy for me.

I was just out throwing star toros, luster ax3 and sparkle flx zone. I have thrown caiman in the past. toro is the beefiest, followed closely by the zone, then the ax3. The ax3 flight is different, and like a slower caiman. They fly straight, then gentle reliable fade, resist turning over. The toro wants to fade but thrown hard enough, especially fh, it will fly straight then fade pretty hard for a slow disc. It doesnt fade hard like a champ fb thrown slowly however. The toro is a great FH driving putter, shape flex lines well, very reliable fade. The zone is a slightly mellow version of this. I will snag champ and/or luster toro when it drops and i bet it dials up the OS a half notch.

after today, bh approach discs are a3, or ax3 depending, then if absolutely called for. FH approach disc and driving putter will be the toro. my main bh driving putter is the a3.

This is exactly what I am bagging until Innova releases the Toro in a baseline plastic like Nexus.

The TS glow champ one I got is definitely in the extra OS approach slot. Slower and more torque resistant than the ROG Champ Gator I've been using for a long time (basically a Gator3) and the Recon Mortar (basically a Champ Caiman). Closest other Innova molded is probably the RhynoX (the fresh DX ones were pretty OS), C-blend Infinite Ruin, or a domey Luster Champ Rhyno. AviarX3 and Rhyno are more useable stability in their normal plastics.

Star Rat has been the straight complement for me and the Toro is close to the same feel but 2-3 ticks more OS.

It is kinda funny to see how short of distance it goes on full rips though Kinda has a max range of ~250 ft for me.

Yup! I can’t wait for a DX, Nexus or (stiff) Pro run of Toros. And for that matter a run in Champion as well. Love this disc. Have 7 already (4 Star and 3 Color Glow)

Oh god, KC Pro Toros would be so perfect. It’s like what Zone lovers have been asking for for years.

Beat to a little straight with the healthy finish to pair with the premium plastic, more OS ones. <drool>
