    i am going to go on a putter quest for a while
    because my short game sucks
    i want to learn to drive with one ect.
    Sinus, Rhyno, or maybe a Pig would be my suggestion. I throw all latitude except my Upshot/driving putter is the Rhyno. I can snap the Rhyno hard and it will always come back. Lately I have been using a Zero Sinus and it is really close to the Rhyno. The Sinus has a shallow rim, Rhyno is a much deeper rim. They feel different, but fly similar. I do not own a Pig.

    Flight #s according to each Manufacturer are identical:

    Innova - Rhyno: Speed 2, Glide 1, Turn 0, Fade 3

    Latitude 64 - Sinus: Speed 2, Glide 1, Turn 0, Fade 3

      shallow rim good
      deep rim bad
      i use magics, so i am more used to a shallow putter

        Sinus is exactly what you described. Where's Big Red when you need him? I think he's got four or five aces with Sinus's now.

          When I throw it correctly its beautiful, when I don't, it sure let's me know!


          Now I am going to try a GL Fuse, I have a Pro-D Buzzz that I have been trying to beat into understable, but im impatient and afraid that, once I get it perfect, I will lose it.

            Hey Matt, a perfectly beat in Buzzz is called a METEOR

            in all seriousness, you should try one.

                actually, the disc i am after is more Comet like
                i am looking for instant beat in Pro-D Buzzz
                (or Buzzz SS, for numbers purposes)
                the numbers can be seen here

                the disc i use for Meteor type shots, is a Glide.
                its has a little less HSS and has less fade also.
                and those numbers can be seen here

                  I have 4-GL Fuses. 178 - 180g is Stable when thrown smooth. But my favorite is 175-177g which will turn nice with clean snap and just keep going right due to the amazing glide of this disc. If stuck in tight woods and no run up I like the straight glide this disc gives me when thrown smooth and soft. I personally prefer the Goldline plastic.

                  The GL Core and Pro D Buzz are hard for me to tell the difference. I carry both currently and they fly nearly the same for me. The Pro D Buzz has held the Anny line a few feet longer before becoming stable. But I'm not sure if that was throwing technique, plastic tackiness, or disc design?

                    Fuse = Comet

                    Core = Buzz

                    Pain = Very Stable Rancho Roc/Roc3 or Hornet

                      I would like to try the Core, but all my regular (Z, ESP, FLX) buzzzs treat me so well, I am pretty happy with them.
                      It was just that Understable slot I was using the Pro-D Buzzz in, I want to replace.

                      I like the idea of just buying a new disc if I lose one, or having multiple of the same disc, without having to "season" them to perfection.

                        Interested to hear your opinion about it.
                        First I thought it was supposed to be between th core and pain.
                        Now it sounds like its more stable than the pain.
                        More like a wasp/roc

                        I am about to take my wasp out of my bag because I always use my new hornet

                          i got a GL 172 fuse (my normal mid weight) only got to throw it a dozen times
                          it was holding any line i put it on (some good, some bad) now i just need to learn how to be more accurate in my throwing.
                          i am very happy so far

                            ok so this may be old(ish) news for people but its new to me and super exciting! i dont keep up on everything in disc golf like i used to so i was super suprised today when i came accross something saying Dave Feldberg switched over to team Latitude.

                            i went and checked it out and sure enough it was true. WOW just wow, i would have never imagined him leaving Innova. it is really cool to see him throwing discs from Latitude/Westside/Dynamic now!

                            here is a "in the bag" video that shows what he is carying now.
                            http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=0QMdrQ3ZdPQ

                            sorry if this is old news, but i havent seen it posted here and its news to me.

                              Westside's Underworld is a new understable disc that has flight numbers (-3/1) that match the fuse, though it's a speed seven. So, you know, if you feel the need for speed ...

                              (As you probably know, Westside is a Finnish company that uses Lat 64's production facilities.)

                              I really like the stamp ... Scroll down to Skulboy's post (#10)
