The Discraft Big Z Roach Disc Golf Putter is straight, stable, and looks and feels like a smaller frisbee. It's very floaty, and is easily manipulated on hyzers, anhyzers, and straight shots.
The Roach is everything you love in a putter. It's domey and has a rim that's not wide but is deep. When you release it you can throw straight at the basket from inside 33 feet and expect a nice straight putt from it. Those outside circle 1 putts need to allow a little hyzer at the end but that's pretty typical for any putter. If you're looking for an upshot disc or a driving putter the Roach is excellent. It was made for long glide shots and it's stable enough at 100 feet but will start to turn if you throw much further than that. The Roach can be in your bag as an approach disc or your putting putter, it's versatile and is used by pro players and amateurs alike.
Big Z Plastic is a premium blend that's got lots of durability. It's similar to Z blend, but it has more grip, more flex, and is a little more glidey and less stable. It's great for the Roach because it really gives this disc a little bit extra grip and helps it fly like a beat in z plastic disc from the first throw.
If you want smooth putts, and a cool bug stamp, with straight flight, you've found it in the Roach. Try this disc today and see how well it fits in your bag.
