Just wondering if there is anything against using a PDGA approved Turbo Putt? I know it went back and forth on approval and I believe now it is Not Approved. But the one I own says PDGA Approved.

 

I'm guessing its a no no to use, what are your thoughts?

Not approved for PDGA Sanctioned tournaments. A favorite for casual players though!
Now I call it the "Turbo Trainer"

I think that the Turbo Putter is pretty much a gimmick. I have used the turbo putt a few times and I understand how to throw it. But I don't need any sort of special disc. I have also seen others throw a turbo putt and they also do it with regular discs. Should it be allowed? I don't know. I wouldn't use one.

If it came down to not using one, we'd big a dozen discs and wouldn't care about the other 300 models avaialble

 

The question I see is whether the 'rule' that pushed the turbo to the side thwarts tech development in the future?

I agree, I do not use one any longer and I turbo putt often! But for what good reason is it no longer allowed? Are there any PGDA/Innova Reps on here to help us understand?

I think the "good reason" was to keep the concept of "disc" in disc golf. 

 

As posted above, there was a flurry of oddities quite unlike the discs we're familiar with.  There are already guidelines as to what qualifies.  They were tightened to preclude not just the turbo putt & wheel, but to thwart other, even more radical products that someone might introduce.

you mean you all didnt run out and buy it 4yrs ago,shucks,well im sure a new putter will come out next week

ohhhh my, just saw picture of money putter,with big $ symbol on it,how many of you saw and bought that piece,,ohh my putts are gonna be money,,hahaha

 

ABCDiscs owner Dan P was promoting his discs & Company while playing various tourneys in different states.Two years ago he was in Sarasota,great bargin prices at the time for either single or the set.Money putter and the Flying Squirrel are 2 discs you just might want to try.Ten greenbacks per discs at the time. Dan also threw in the line to various winners that day.

Likewise,Rip Disc's Graboide and Relic were a great buy when Skipper was promoting his 2 discs,believe they were a great steal @ $12 for the pair including shipping.
