The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

With the talk of "Aviar Style" putters I thought it would be interesting to hear your opinions on the non-Aviar style putters and approach discs available. Now, I consider discs like the Wizard, Warlock, Omega, Challenger and Magnet to be in one class of P/A discs while discs such as the Super Puppy, Birdie and Sonic are in another class of P/A discs, a more ultimate friendly class if you will. I am looking into adding a more ultimate inspired approach disc to my bag, to have on hand for shots, that I may need a little more float in the air and I am wondering what you all are using and would suggest.

Rattler or Puttr
rattlers will float all day long, i used to use it if i was far out and couldnt really get any speed on my putt.
The Whitler!!! Seriously if thats what your looking for then this is the disc
Jared is correct. The Whitler from Snap Discsports is the way to go. It was inspired by disc golf and freestyle legend Glen “Whitler” Whitlock’s specifications. Here is ther website.


Another disc that you might like is INNOVA's Zephyr. They are making it in higher weights now for Super Class, however I am sure you can find the older lighter ones that are PDGA approved for disc golf play.

The Zephyr is a little bigger diameter, making it harder to stick in the basket, but it floats real nice.

In addition to the Whitler and Zephyr, my main putter is the CHING Juju. It is a 0 stability putter that floats with little effort.

It does not fit in the bag very well but I occasionally carry along a 175g Ultrastar (ultimate) disc with me. This is for courses that you may get into trouble and need that special shot that only an ultimate disc will provide.
I've heard good things about the Rattler. Forgot about the Whitler and I'll check out the Puttr. Thanks for the reminder, because I do need to consider the size of the disc so it can fit into my bag. The Whitler looks good but may be too over sized for my bag. But, that may be a good excuse to upgrade from my 15+ year old Wall City bag!!!

Thanks for the info and the links.
The Whitler is not that big. I keep it my putter pocket of my Revolution bag. I put a Aviar inside it and have my go to Juju in there as well. The Zephyr is a little bigger. It fits in the bag fine and if you want you can stick something inside it to reduce the amount of room taken up.
U can play w/ an actual Ultimat I think...lol, try taht
