I can't say I am an Innova fan, but seriously the Polecat has to be their best mold. I have one back in my bag again.

I do not like DX plastic at all, yuck on the waxy feel, KC colorglow would be so much better.

Fyi, 3 acetone baths with vigorous scrubbing and light sanding in between bath, gets rid of quite a bit of that waxy feel. Only way I can bag DX.

Some runs feel better than others, but you are right the majority of newer dx is awful. I have never been a big fan of innova either, but I do love me some polekitty and teebirds.

So can some runs of the modern R-Pro, I saw at my local Walmart about 3 R-Pro Polecat in late 2016 that were almost as flexible as the DGA Special Steady Ed plastic used on the 3 Gumputt molds and Blowfly/II molds. Now how they sold I will never know, unless some disc golfer who is a snap spin putter is using them or a person is using those as a dog disc. They had a 4th R-Pro Polecat that was only about as good as modern 2010's R-Pro comes for anything other then the Wahoo that still seems to come most of the time in a stiff driver R-Pro.

I'll take just about any of these. A color glow Champ Polecat would be great, also. If the XT is the good XT like the Bullfrog is made of, I'll take a stack of those. And a Nexus Polecat would be awesome, as well.

TL;DR: Polecats are awesome.

This thread makes me remember the lovely time I had playing Winthrop gold with just a dx polecat. It was so stupidly fun. That was in 2016..

Polecat wouldn't be my first choice for a one disc round @ Winthrop Gold but you still probably shot pretty well i'd guess.

Rolling Polecats for distance is tough because they stand up VERY quickly.

I have two of the Christmas stamped XT Polecats and one of the Proshop stamp XTs.
They're....fine.

DX is in the bag.

Lately I've been having a lot of success with a lid-style, nose-up, floaty/spinny upshot technique in the 60-100' range. Drawing metal and occasionally draining one from a range that is normally layup territory.

Normally I just use a little lighter and beat-up Wizard for the shot, but on a whim I picked up a 156g DX Polecat the other day. This thing feels pretty great in the backyard putting test. How many putters is too many putters to carry? I'm not dropping a Wizard so this would make 6
