Review: Okay, wow, this disc is a ridiculous piece o' crap. I've thrown plenty of Aerobie products before and always thought they were well designed. Such is not the case with this one. It would be a fine putter if all of your putts were no more than 10' away; after that, forget it. High speed, low speed, doesn't matter, it's so overstable (for a putter) that it's hard to be accurate with it. I tried a 100' approach with it and it (RHFH) and it turned over, hit the ground and rolled like crazy. (something that would have never happened with my Warlock) So I tried to make the 35' putt I was left with, and it fades so hard at the end that it seemed like it was trying to avoid the basket! I'll keep it for rollers, since that seems like that's the only thing it will do well, otherwise, it stays at the back of the bag. (or maybe on the wall) Do not buy!

Review: The Aerobie sharpshooter #3 putt and approach disc has the same thick flight plate, copper color, float-ablity, and squared-off leading edge as the other sharpshooter discs. The sharpshooters in general do not have much glide, tend not to skip when they hit the ground, fly very straight at first then rapidly lose speed and fade hard. If you have a really good feel for distances, this might work as a putter because if you are outside of 30 feet, you will absolutely have to take the fade into account. It was watching a pro bowler's shot hook into the pocket when I got it right, and that was cool, but I'm not consistent enough make that happen nearly often enough. I would say this is not a beginner friendly disc due to the fade factor.
