Personally I have issues packing a disc for two or three holes though so I'm kinda split on that, I haven't really taken the Entropy in the bag for more than practice rounds.

Lately I rediscovered haha my soft electron Envy for driving on a dead straight line... the more familiar I'm getting with them after 5+ years the more tempted I am to pack three of them haha. Soft electron and plasma at 165g and neutron 172 for FH... but 3 Envy's in a 7 disc bag also seems weird.
yea so i bag 3 throwing envys to cover everything.. 1. original beat in neutron that has s little turn to it and just super straight that i use majority of the time. 2. soft neutron for when i want to crank on it or need it to stick. 3. proton envy that is noticeably more overstable than the rest and i use it rarely but when i need the extra fade and cannot risk turning over in wind its great

I use my Envys like a midrange though, regularly throw them off the tee for anything under 300ft

also putt with base plastic envy one stiff, one soft.. best disc all around i have found

As an example, I've watched Dave Greenwell do this very thing, time and time again.

It's all about technique, not about the plastic you throw.

BTW, I throw p2s over 350' on the regular, so I do practice what I preach.
I don't know about the whole crutch thing. I do know that a Zone or the like makes dicey approaches from the rough a lot less stressful.

Could I learn to nail these shots with a grid aviar (albeit with a lower % of success)? Would this challenge improve my game overall? Probably to both, but when it comes down to it and the wind is whipping and I'm in jail during a comp round, I'll take the Zone, thank you.

Honey, Devil hawk and whatever the War Spear is now. These three are somewhat fast but have very little to no glide.

One disc I can recommended is a Rhyno. Want no glide? then get a Champion. I do not know how a cousin uses that Champion plastic for his putting putter other then his putt must be a spinning putt.

Hi! I have pretty similar needs than OP. I want low glide, point and shoot putter that sits next to the basket. Currently I'm using Jokeris and Judges, but Jokeris are too fast and judges just glide a lot so It's pretty difficult to put those next to the basket. I like soft'ish putters. I might grab r-pro rhyno but what are the other options?

The Berg seems like a good option

How do Bergs beat in? Do they lose fade and how durable are the plastics?
