SPOTLIGHT ON: Soft Banger GT putter stability (plastic): 1.0 (X) best for: improved putting grip, drives
Banger is a little weird and a lot of putter. GT stands for Groove Top, and has proven itself to be a player favorite on a couple of different levels. Many love it for the added confidence the groove offers for gripping and releasing, and any added confidence is a good thing when it comes to putting. Then there are players who carry Banger for drives up to 300 feet; the 1.0 stability helps to keep Banger nice and straight on hard rips without threat of turning over. Choose the soft X version over the hard D version if you prefer the grip and give of a soft putter.
In stores now: ask your disc golf retailer for the Discraft Crank performance tee.
Happy spring. Time to throw farther than we did last year.
SPOTLIGHT ON: Hornet midrange stability (plastic): 2.0 (Z) best for: moderate winds and hyzer approaches
It’s important to have a range of stability in your bag, and keeping a hive full of killer bees is an easy way to accomplish that goal with your mids. The Hornet is perfect to reach for when you’re faced with moderate winds, need a predictable hyzer finish or you’re looking for a smart skip on the landing. Rip it hard and it won’t get flippy, so throw your Hornet with confidence.
