It floats, it flies pretty straight and its pretty. The #2 putter is a tall rim putting disc with a stable fight pattern, similar in some ways to a Discraft APX. That means that it flies straight and easy and pretty slow, and is fine for non-wind shorter approach shots. Long approaches don't work real well with this disc - it tends to peak out and doesn't have that much distance potential, at least for my throwing style. It's OK as far as chain sticking goes, about like the APX. It has more glide at the end of it's run than an APX, but less than an Aviar. Personally I use APX for 75 foot approaches where I want to take a whack at the chains and then a flatter, softer disc for close up precision puts - so this disc is not part of my regular game. It works in water though and is a straight flyer.
