Blowflys or Gumbputts. 225ft standstill, with an easy catch motion. Of course, not for everybody...well...mostly nobody. But if you give them a chance, you'll see they've got massive glide. The rubbery grip I think helps generate some high rpms, because these things stay up in the air longer than they should, given the power you put into them.

For dead straight approaches 150'-200', I like the EMac Mercy. It's definitely not something I would have picked out normally, but I got one as a birthday gift and decided to give it a go. Think shorter Comet. A Proxy works well in this role too.

Also for shorter (100-150') approaches, try a lid. I bag a GG Star Sonic for that and love it.

Thanks for the feedback!
Just out of curiosity, why do you want an approach putter with a lot of glide?

Is it more for a get out of trouble shot?

I hade a fuzion Warden for that spot.. .but it had TO much glide, was kind of hard to predict how far it would go.

I like low glide discs for approach shots, like the BERG

I really like my Bullfrog for low glide situations and a soft magnet for when I need more glide.

I always like to have two of my putting putters in the bag in case I lose one.
I do this, but I also carry a polecat. It does things a super beat wizard can't

This exactly. I carry wizards for driving and putting but approach with a polecat or berg. Speed control of a 1 speed disc is something many people would benifit from.

I have also not seen anything other than a lid make tight turns in short distances on the green. Putting around a tree in the circle sure why not.

If you find any 150 class (150-159g) Serpents (or Scales) I would love to know (PM please) if they are Fossil or Fossil Fuel ( I would love it if they were Fossil Flex though).

And the colors (I am partial to black serpents though)

The Fossil Flex I have remind me of some really old Wizards I got probably back
in like '04-'06 with the Overstable,com stamp.

Thanks!

I use a taller Profile Magnet, Titanic in Proline for putting and longer putts as well as a Magent in Jawbreaker for most putting when weather is not too hot over ~93-95 F on up and when I need a more stright putter, Jawbreker gets beat up quick with putter practice. The Titanic mold flies slower then a new Magnet on the same line though both are speed 2 as Discraft will not have molds go to speed 1 like other companies. I love the control the slower putter has, plus the Titanic feels like the older Magnets made in the early 2000's up till 2006 when the Pro D plastic changed.
