    Mid Range Floater???

    Is there such thing as a mid range floater?

    True dat.

    Fact is, the two times I've lost a disc on hole 11, the disc went almost exactly where I wanted. Both times took a freakish bounce off a tree and into the drink.

    4.) Throw the shot for the hole, if water is on the right, throw a naturally left fading shot and vice versa.

    1.) Choose to lay up, do not be overly agressive.

    2.) Take the path of least resistance (look for the shortest distance over the water.

    3.) throw hyzers with lots of extra speed and power (that way there is a minimal chance of skipping to the far side, anhyzers don't skip, they dive)

    4.) Throw the shot for the hole, if water is on the right, throw a naturally left fading shot and vice versa.

    We have made an art form out of getting back floating discs. Hydra will work, but it is a bit clunky. However, you shouldn't be needing floating approach discs or putters - you should be able to control your midranges enough that water shouldn't be an issue...

    Last time I was at Dabney, a friend hit a tree with his Lightning #2 Driver (a floater) and it dropped straight into the middle of the pond. We finished our round and checked back later, and the current and/or breeze had pushed it close enough to the edge that we could reach it with a stick. A non-floating disc would have been long gone.

    You know, I would have to agree but that would cut out like half of trojan and to be honest, I love that course.

    don't throw in the water, a disc that floats in the middle of the pond that you can see but can't get to will piss you off more than one at the bottom of the lake.

    Dragon's not a mid-range by any stretch though.

    Innova Dragon. The Hydra works good, too. I thought Odyssey by Gateway made several floating discs. Check out http://www.marshallstreetdiscgolf.com/. They have a big selection of floating discs. Apparently, a 150g PIG floats, too!

    However....in the interest of being thorough, you only mentioned some rather stable midrange discs. The following "midrange/multi-purpose" discs are about the same stability (or even less) than that of the honorable blowfly:

    Discraft Breeze
    Discraft Glide
    Innova Stingray

    I'll bet there are a few more out there that other's could add to that list...
    But do they float?

    Both the Blunt Gumputt and Blowfly (DGA) float and are actually quite stable in terms of putters.
