I wouldn't use it. Cause you'll never get to use it in a tourament due to it's PDGA illegal as of Dec.
The turbo putt seems ideal because you are dropping the disc from above the top so it would seem to be easier to get it in the basket than a straight or 'lofted' putt. The only guy I knew who did it well was also very tall. So he was really dropping the disc in from above. He struggled if it was windy or too long a putt.
i use the turbo putt above all other putting stances. it is deadly accurate when practiced.i put my thumb in the middle of the disc. i then set the rim in the first joint of the fingers.when comming forward with the disc be sure to spin it fast as you can. i can throw a turbo putt upwards of 100feet and more.i hit accuratly (7-9 out of 10) from 30 feet. the most important thing is practice.i wouldnt recomend this put for a new player.its a utility throw like a tomahawk or thumber.its good to have in case you need it but not for every putt.watch the pros and see how often the top flight players throw one.
And which disc is your favorite for this? I have tried using a standard putter but am beginning to feel the midrange Roc or Buzz has been getting better distance and is a little more cofortable
