Review: I love the Upshot. It goes right where you want it to. I've been throwing all sorts of discs and I'm finding I reach for the Upshot more and more. The plastic is 'grippy' and I just like the way the disc feels in my hand. I've been using an Upshot for mid-range all the way up to putts. So far, it's been outstanding. One caveat. The plastic is rather soft - not pliable soft, but rather durability soft. It nicks easily. After a few rounds, my Upshot was pretty torn up. Threw fine, but looked worn. Still, it's a great disc.

Review: First off, I'm relatively new to the game...so feel free to competely dismiss this review. OK, with that said, I am pretty familiar with discs. I come from an ultimate background with a little freestyle. I am fairly accurate with drives, but need a bit of work with putting.

The #2 upshot is a very forgiving disc. It is a nice grippy/gummy disc that is very easy to control. My local course is everything BUT flat. There are numerous opportunities for upshots. This disc, while I have only had it a short time, has already given me lower scores. My puts are better controlled and this disc even acts as a decent mid-range approach disc. Nice flat flight with a gentle hyzer. Very predictable...which is exactly what I need in a putter. This little guy will be in my bag for a while.

My name is Bob Hayett. I've been playing disc golf for about six years and have been running the disc golf league at Prairie Center Park in Olathe, Kansas for the Kansas City Flying Disc Club. I would classify myself as an intermediate masters player. Since I don't throw long I pride my game on accuracy, especially upshots.

My current favorite putter. The U2 flies very straight, is easy to control , and soft enough to catch chains and fall in the basket. When thrown flat, the wind has little effect on the flight. I use it for short approach and all putts. My favorite weight is 170 grams.
