    Jet, I don't know what to tell you about the finger thing. Have you tried tape? I know people who do that as well as people who use a glove. Maybe the Rhyno isn't the right putter for you and you should be looking for a new putter that doesn't have that type of edge?

    It just seems to me that adding to your disc options on what is virtually a long putt is not the right idea when you could be using your putter a little differently than you are now to achieve the desired result.
    i use to have the same problem with my upshot discs, was using a different grip than my driving grip, now i use a combo of the two grips with my upshot disc and solved the problem.
    man i think i am mumbling hopefully this makes since to ya

      With the power that I have seen Jet throw her closer putts (way too much), I think she has plenty of power to use a putter at 50 or 60 ft as well. If the rim of the putter is causing your finger to get hurt, try switching putters. I have an XD you can try next time we play. A good midrange disc, and the know how of how to throw it never hurts as well.

        Rhyno works perfect for short lower power puts. But not so good on longer shots. I'll try a kite and a spider (please no more photos)

            That's part of it. I fan grip on the Rhyno - works great for close shots. Power gripping isn't too accurate (kinda dangerous for anyone not behind me) for my putting.

                  Yeah, but how boring. New discs are fun.

                      A putter may be the way to go for short approach shots, but it doesn't have to be the putter you're using now. I use a j/k aviar for everything <40' and just started using a Pig for >40' and <100".

                      That way, you still get a new disc!

                        Once you go Wizard or BB Aviar you will never want to use another disc for anything under 200ft. Apologies to Adam if that takes the fun out of it.

                          I like aviars but not as much as rhynos.
