The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I keep teetering on the line of buying a SLOW SPEED Approach disc. I am still only a few months into my DG Career. I am still working on every aspect of my game daily. One aspect I have not practiced NEAR as much is my putting (hoping to remedy this if I get a basket for Father's Day). But, as it stands, my comfort zone for putting is about 15ft. I pretty well know I'll hit it at least 85% of the time from there. Past that, I am a trainwreck. Past 30ft, I still try and putt, but mostly a jump putt upshot. Past 40ft, I wont even try and putt anymore. It is just not productive for me at this point. So, with out being able to make the distance I hope for, especially on 350ft+ holes, I end up throwing A LOT of approach shots from 40-60ft out. For some reason, I have started to HIT more and more of these approach shots, or AT LEAST leave my self a drop in. The times I don't hit it, I of course end up with a long clean up putt because I carried it to far trying to grab chains.


Does anyone have any experience with the REALLY SLOW Innova approach discs? As in the Innova Polecat, Sonic, Birdie, Etc.... Are you regularly using them as approach discs and how do you feel they work for you? I would like to look at something that won't fly by so far when I take a run at the chains and miss. One of my 1st discs was a DX Birdie, and I remember not liking it much. May change now that I have thrown more, but if you throw a polecat or Sonic, Please speak into the Microphone!! Please and Thank You.

So for the disc choice, Rhyno Pro plastic.  Very dedicated and controllable finish, its similar to the birdie in shape but much easier to use all around.  I use mine off the tee for shot that need to fade and stop, down hill to the bucket.  The disc is tacky and soft, seldom does the disc hit and roll skip or move.  The disc hits the ground and stops.  Also very useful for a putter.  This is a disc you should try.  I never threw one until seeing what 1 could do the hands of a pro.  Very good disc to use and learn from, a Pro Rhyno will always be in me bag.  Also if you could find a Champion Edition Classic Roc, then enough said.  I have one but there arent may around so mine hardly come out of the box.  Hope this helps.  Its a little long though.
