If you want a stable approach disc try the new Innova Champion Invader Luster putter, it delivers. It's got a high torque resistance and it's not the overstable approach disc that the Pig is. This disc isn't about max distance, it's about straight flying control and not a dumping hyzer at the end.
Innova has created an awesome disc in the Invader. There's almost no glide when you're throwing this disc, with a rating of 2 and a flat topped flight plate, the Invader isn't about to go further than you want it to. When throwing the Invader, make sure you allow for the short distance and no glide. The 0 turn and 1 fade make the Invader's flight path almost perfectly straight with a little hyzer finish at the end. Disc golfers will enjoy the shallow rim with a small bead that works for either the sidearm or backhand throw. The Innova Invader works best off the tee or as an approach disc. It can be used as a putter but that's not what it's designed for. It wants to be thrown in tightly wooded or open places where it can get up and down for you to get a putt.
The Luster Invader is the newest in Innova's line of stable approach discs in the last couple of years. The flight path will be similar to the Bullfrog, also a flat topped approach disc but not as resistant to turnovers. The Innova Invader has a rim a little wider and is a little taller than the Bullfrog, so it's going to be a little more glidey than the Bullfrog but it will also not flip up and anhyzer.
The Luster plastic is a version of champion plastic that is slightly less see through and a hint more overstable. The Innova Invader has all the right makings of a straighter approach disc with less glide. Invaders will be flying wherever you're playing so grab yours today and go get some birdies!
