I don't 'need' my Caiman, but I do reach for it a lot.

"I" do, depending on the conditions that day and the course that I am playing.

I carry a Fossil Scale and a Fossil Gila, so depending on the distance and line I am envisioning I "may" choose one of these if the best option requires that kind of line or if the wind is bad.

"I" would prefer to go with a neutral disc on a straighter line, but that may not be "my" best option...
And until recently in last few years with the Bullfrog, there was not really a neutral putter that was on the market with low enough glide for windy situations.

Do you need an overstable approach disc?

There is glut of these discs on the market. Stability is game, especially in this slot, and all brands seem to have good ones.

Berg was approved 5 years ago. It's low glide, neutral, and pretty immune to wind.

True, and I have a Zone for that shot too. I guess I was thinking about all the forehand flex shots I see my buddies try to throw. Haha

That Too, I forgot it existed

In same vain a broken in Soft X Putt'r with the mini concave top it gets at that point is also a good choice for this and has been around a lot longer.

However you still might need for the rather high winds past 30-35 mph a OS putter to fight the wind and run nearer to neutral.

I played a round yesterday with 25mph winds, my zone was flying more like my fierce when throwing into a head wind. I'm not sure there was any amount of hyzer I could've given the fierce yesterday to get it to land as close to the pin as my zone. So, I'd say yes, I do need an overstable approach disc.
