This year's proto is unique and sweet, and we think you're going to love it!  It's the widest diameter putt and approach model Discraft has ever offered, so it can legally weigh in at a hefty 183 grams (subject to PDGA approval)... that's at least a full seven grams more than other putters!  The disc is obedient to its master and goes where you throw it, delivering directional precision and soft, flat landings.  The rim is beadless and feels great in your hand.  Think of it as a shorter, slower Comet that is hungry for chains. 

class: putt and approach
plastics: ESP and Pro D
width: 22.06 cm
max weight: 182 or 183, depending on PDGA ruling

Played the Ace Race at Westover Park in Harrisonburg, Virginia last Saturday. Hurricane Irene was barreling in on Virginia. Harrisonburg is about 90 miles west of my hometown and after checking the event was still on. Rain & wind all the way there. As the participants began checking in hard to misting rain was pelting everyone. It wasn't too windy but by the start time there was a constant wind with 30-40mph gusts. Throwing some practice shots I was able to get 200' straight shots when there was no wind. To get any long distance you had to throw it on a hard hyzer flip, but as soon a any wind came in it was any ones guess where it would go.

 

This prototype putter may be useful for some shots but not in any wind situation. This disc was pretty much useless. Supper flippy in to any kind of wind. The longest hole was 175', most were around 150'. I told my group that it wouldn't take much to win it and I was right. The winner manage 3 metal hits. I managed 1 about 1/2 way through the second round. I watched one guy throw a hard hyzer shot it flipped over to a roller, rolled around the basket and bumped in to pole for a hit. Out of my group of six players there were 5 total metal hits.

 

If this disc goes in to production it should be called the "Thud" from the sound it makes when it hits the ground flat. (Which it does, a lot)

Its more Stable than an aero, i think it is very similar to an oversized aviar. (I threw it, 1 ace 4 metals)

Sounds like an Aero. Looks like one too.

I love the Focus, wasn't going to participate this year, but that sure might change my mind.

I am STOKED to try this disc! Can't wait to ACE RACE it! So, if it is like a shorter, slower COMET, I am assuming its fairly understable then? For a Putter anyway???

Great, I might as well not go now. Unfortunately I'm not the pro caliber player that can throw an Ace run with a putter. If it was the "Discraft Putting Challenge" it would be perfect.

Thoughts on this new prototype disc? I am always looking for a reliable putter. I love the focus and have since it was the ace race dics - but I am willing to give others a test drive.
