Are Rattlers discontinued?
I putted with them for years and am trying to return to the sport after a 6 year break to play soccer in my 40s. That inevitably ended at the same time as my ACL.
From what I am reading, polecat is a possible replacement?

(I have time to figure this out, but if I have to change putters, I'm gonna need that time.)

Why did you bump a Birdie thread to ask about the Rattler, only to consider settling on the Polecat?

Wat do?

Rattlers were posted on InfiniteDiscs as recently as two weeks ago. If you want some old ones PM me...but yeah I'd suggest posting in a Rattler thread

I think he ment to finish his thought and say, how does the Birdie Compare to the Rattler. If it were me, the company Lighting Discs has a Upshot that is a Putter like the Rattler. Get it in the modern baseline plastic, with the DuPont added to the plastic. Old Baseline was not durable at all.

I don’t care that this thread is old, I’m just thrilled to see the birdie being discussed in any capacity.

See my post above to help with your choice, Gotta Go Gotta throw Sells the Lighting discs, bought the discs, the molds and plastic pellets after the original owner died. Still uses Lighting's Website though to sell the discs for a very cheep price, the Upshot is not that popular of a Lighting mold, those go to the Rubber Putter and #2 Upshot for discs.

I asked for a Birdie for Christmas as a clean up putting disc, but kept putting with my Nova. Now, I use the birdie for drives 200 feet or less. It's a lot easier than controlling a higher speed disc.
