Default Which lid?

I'd like to add a lid or lid-like disc to the bag. What do y'all suggest? Also, weight—light, heavy, or in between? I know the poll above is Innova-heavy, but I have no manufacturer preference.

For what it's worth, my currently bagged putters are a Pure and a Gauntlet, both 174. The Pure is for approaches and spin putts outside of about 20 ft., and the Gauntlet is for push putts inside of 20 ft.

Kitty. Whatever weight you like. Great for drives, approaches, and sometimes I use it for long putts.

I would have voted Polecat because that's the only one listed that I've used

I ultimately voted "other" because I use the RDG Serpent (175g ChalkPit) for those lay-ups and approaches I used to use the Polecat for - it's freaking money. It's not quite as much of a true "lid" as the Polecat (or Birdie, which I've also used in this slot) but you'll love it.

Birdie!

If you want glide, Polecat.

The Aero is a fun one disc round disc, but I don't bag it; too unpredictable.

I bag a 175gr Birdie because it just stops flying and drops flat. I use it as sort of a utility type upshot disc.

Condor.

It's a fun catch / warm up disc. Big enough to hold another disc inside it.

Zepher, the bomb. Yup it's big, but it is an awesome disc. It's a putter, nope a driver, well on 200 foot holes. Second choice is the Condor. Now at 200g grams that thing is a beast. Nothing stops a heavy disc, not trees, rodents, rocks or the basket. They take a little practice but man are they worth the 9 bucks in DX.

Condors are fun, but I wouldn't consider them lids. More like a big, dumb, slow, beat in Roc.

Ive bagged Polecats off and on and am currently running the G Star Polecat. I liked the Champs they ran awhile back but they were a little too much on the stable side and actually had less glide than most 'Cats.

GStars are durable and glidey. Still a little stable but I like them.

^ this.

Or death putts. My mixed bag includes a 175 and a 145 Birdie. Wanting to add the Zepher soon, just because of the chatter it gets here.
