The Magnet is a slow, slightly overstable putt and approach disc. The Magnet has a very high profile and the plastic is stiff and slightly grippy, but overall is fairly smooth. This disc best compares to the other stable to slightly overstable approach discs on the market such as the Big Bead/KC Aviar, the Wizard, and the Rhyno. Stability-wise the Magnet is high-speed stable, similar to the Wizard and KC Aviar but is also more low speed overstable with slightly more fade and an earlier bite. This disc doesn't have a lot of lift or float and this can be both a good and bad thing. The positive side is that the disc won't blow too far past but it's also a little less conducive to finesse and touch shots as it will fall out of the air quickly as it runs out of gas. The Magnet is similar distance-wise with the other approach discs but it will require a bit more height to get the same amount of carry. It's also versatile enough to be used on sweeping anhyzers, strong hyzers and straight shots that finish slight left.
As a putter, the Magnet will hold a tight line and will have slight fade when it slows down, mainly on longer putts. The disc also drops quickly so it requires a bit more height on longer putts or if you putt with a loft/pitch, but this can be advantageous as running longer putts don't fly by as far if you miss. The plastic is grippy enough to grab some chain but not overly soft or sticky. Overall, the Magnet is a solid and versatile approach and putt disc that should find its way into your bag if you don't throw Aviars, Wizards, or Rhynos.

I love this disc. I use it mainly for putting. I didn't like it as a short mid range though, try a hawk. The heavier weights feel a little more accurate although you can also blow them by the basket a little easier if you aren't careful.

The Magnet is a slightly overstable putter in the same shape as the Soft Magnet. I'm quite a fan of the Soft Magnet so it seem logical to investigate its harder brother for use as a putt/approach disc at longer ranges than I'd use the Soft Magnets for. And it works! Flightwise, the disc is the same as the soft version, straight with a slightly overstable fade but unlike the soft version, you can throw it quite hard and it will not bend in your hand. And you can putt with it just as well as a Soft Magnet (although its chain sticking abilities may not be quite as good..... but then again, if you putt correctly, you don't need the plastic to help anyway!). I've tried quite a lot of putters and am currently trying to reduce the number of different types I carry - for me, the Magnet can be used in place of the Innova Avair putter and as anyone who has used an Avair can tell you, that's quite high praise indeed.
