Stinger
Flight Rating Category Value What Ching says:
FAIRWAY APPROACH: The STINGER should be your first choice in ground-to-air combat on the course. Developed for Pros who need a short/mid-range 'turnover' disc, this model is also perfect for training novice players. You'll know you are ready for a higher stability level when you are able to make this disc break to the right (clockwise release).
If you already have the snap and arm speed to control the turnover, you can let it rip for low canopy rollers or release with 'hyzer' for finesse approaches. The profile fills the gap between a putter and mid-range, which means you can use it for putting or short drives as you build your arsenal and earn technique.

The Stinger is a short to medium range, slightly understable, Thumbtrac'd disc. It doesn't really fit in to any one category as a putter or an approach disc - personnally, I feel it lies between the two. Thrown hard and flat (RHBH), it will turn slightly right, level out before fading very slightly back to the left again. At lower speeds, it flies straight then fades left. Ching say the disc is a fairway approach disc - this seems to be a reasonable description. It's is fairly short ranged (less than an approach disc but a more than a soft putter) and flies quite slowly. The plastic is good and tough so I tend to use mine as a "get out of jail" disc for when I've mucked up an approach/drive and need to get out of trouble and onto the green but maybe need to go around the obsticles. Certainly, it lends itself to any throw you try, be it forehand, backhand, hammer etc. Without wanting to sound like a Ching salesman, I'd just say that if you are looking for that odd disc somewhere between a Roc type disc and a putter, try a Stinger and see what you can do with it - it may be what you're looking for.
