Review: I have recently switched over to all challengers. I generally tend to be very hard on my drivers, on shorter holes that need more accuracy i drive with them. The challenger doesnt seem to beat in as fast as other putters i have used (juju, aviar, rhyno) all those discs went flippy after about 2 weeks of use. Granted i play 5+ rounds a week, the challenger stands up to my beating. Yet i still get a new one every month at least. I have putting with the challenger for about 2 months now, and the last two tournaments i placed 2nd in my division. I must say it has helped so far, so im gonna stick with it.

Review: Up until this year I only used this disc for putting (and love it for that), but this year I've unlocked even more potential using it for short drives as well.

As a putter it has the best feel over the other lines, but you have to make sure you don't get one of the stiff ones that compares more to a kc plastic. It makes a great putter as it really doesn't float (and get pushed around by wind). It really is like throwing a weight in a bucket rather than floating a disc. I thus find greater consistency.

As I driver I've found I really love having a "spectrum" of this disc. I can snap a new one as hard as I can and it will fly dead sraight and finish with a hyzer. A medium beat one goes straight all the way. A very beat one will turnover and not come back. I'm trying to get two in this state. I park 90% of all shots 220 and in with my very beat challenger usually thrown 10%hyzer angle with decent snap and watch it flip up and go dead straight the rest of the way. I can throw this thing around 300, but at that range, why not "club-down" and throw an identical shot with my identical "spectrum" of dx rocs. All in all throwing this at a short driver has lowered my agerage score by 2 strokes.

I picked up a Pro-D Challenger after playing with a Elite-X Challenger for a couple of weeks. I think the Challenger mold is very versatile, with many uses, but I'll just talk about what I like to use my Pro-D for. First the Pro-D is softer than the Elite, but no so much that it's floppy, just enough to stick to the chains, and that what I use this disc for; long putts. When I have a long putt, that I need a good, overstable and predictable path, I reach for the Challenger. I can put a lot more "ummph" on the disc with out the worry of getting an erratic flight or sending the disc way too high up. I've also notice that the Challengers seem heavier than the weight says. I usually like a putter that is > 174 , but with my Pro-D Challenger, I found the 170-172 easier to handle. All in all I really enjoy this disc, and with a Pro-D price, a very welcome edition to my bag.
