Yeah, I might not go that far. But I do see the Breaker as a shallower, and therefore slightly faster, Rhyno. Not quite midrange fast though. I guess it's kind of a tweener. Flight is about halfway between a champ rhyno and a zone. OS for sure, can handle my torque-ey sidearm.

The one I'm using is a Worlds stamp orange P line. I like how firm the plastic is. Doesn't wobble at all in your hand.

i have to say i'm diggin' it as well. it felt slick at first in my hand, but now that i've used it a bit more there is some tack to it which i like. kind of a weird combo feel of dx and star. i can't compare it to other discs since my experience is limited, but essentially use it as mentioned by others - shorter mid shots/drives and approaches, and it actually gets some good skips around obstacles too!

been using the ringer a lot more lately, but both of mine are beating in so quick they're getting understable.

>>anyone think that there is a space for the breaker in between a beat ringer and my cryztal z zone? our local courses are pretty short and rocky, the utility approach shot gets used ALL the time. good spot to dial in the bag.

I don't know much about the Ringer, but I can tell you the Breaker is an OS disc, but not nearly as OS as a Zone. It's also as long, if not slightly longer, than a Zone if you're throwing it off the tee or for those longer approaches.

Don't know how familiar you are with Innova, but I could compare (in flight, not in feel or speed or any of that) Zone to Breaker as a Pig to Rhyno.

I carry a lot of putters, but here's my set-up in that department:

3 Wizards-Eraser for upshots, Medium and Soft for putting
Jokeri-Driving
Breaker-Short mid-range shots, long approaches, off the tee when it needs to be lower in height than my Jokeri

So if I can make all those OS putters fit in the bag, I'm sure a Breaker will work out for you as well. Love it.

The Breaker is more or less a Ringer clone [in premium plastic].

The Ringer is only 1mm taller than a Breaker and its rim is also only wider/bulkier than the Breaker as well. Inside rim diameter is 2mm off from the +1mm rim width, but if you fondled both in your hands I doubt you could tell much if any of a difference.

There is certainly room for the three IMO. Zone/Breaker will be more similar in flight than the Ringer/Breaker due to the plastic types.

Zone will be more Firebird-y, while the Breaker will seem more Banshee-ish. Rough analogy, don't everyone get their panties in a bunch

I know they are, but I made that mistake with the Magnet/Titanic and would rather just keep it simple. Thanks though!

i use mine on pretty much any shot under 280 that needs to go left at the very end, for hyzer spikes, following the disc's natural fade, or for flex approaches/skip shots. pretty much a "disc x for hole and shot y" type thing. always know where i'm going to use it.

so far i'm lovin' it.

I have been looking for a good driving putter that can handle some wind. I gave the Breaker a shot with some other popular molds over the last few days. Breaker, Ringer, Suspect, Rhyno, and the Zone. I already throw a Zone. I just want something with a touch less fade. I threw it with the others so I would have a good understanding of how much fade and resistance to turning they have. Throwing in 10-20 mph swirling wind.
Compared to the Breaker-
Ringer- Same distance - slight turn into the wind.
Rhyno- Shorter. Same amount of fade.
Suspect- Longer. Less fade.
Zone- Shorter. More fade.

Looking forward to throwing it some more. Of the 5, I liked the Breaker the most. Easy to throw. I had consistent shots all day with it. I'm thinking that a broke in Breaker will start to fly like the Ringers. That I can live with. The Suspect is a nice disc. I just think its a bit long for what I wanted. It is a true Mid range. The Rhyno was very consistent. The rim was not nearly as comfortable as the Breaker though.
Anyways, my thoughts on the Breaker. Nice disc from DGA.

I know this is a Breaker thread but try the Prodiscus JOKERi. That said, the Breaker was a fantastic disc, the little I've thrown it.
