  • Speedi 2

    The first number is the speed of the disc. It can range from 1-14. Putters are rated 1-3 and are designed to function at low speeds any player can use. Mid range discs are 4-5 and require more speed when thrown to achieve their desired results. A fairway driver will be speed 6-8, these discs fly mostly straight. Discs that are speed 9 and above are classified as distance drivers. Throwing a distance driver takes a significant amount of power to get up to speed, players are rewarded with additional distance if they learn to control these discs. New players are cautioned that speed does not equal distance. Due to the difficulty of controlling higher speed discs, a beginner could find that a light weight disc with a speed of 6 or 7 could fly farther for them than a max distance driver with a speed of 13. In fact most new players should learn by throwing putters only so they can develop the proper form. After a few weeks they'll begin to get reliable results and are ready ×

  • glidei 4

    This second rating is numbered 1 – 6. Glide describes a disc’s ability to remain in flight. Discs with higher glide ratings will fly further than discs rated lower in this category. A high glide rating is good when the goal is distance, but can have the wrong effect for putts and approach shots. Sometimes overshooting the basket can be worse than not making it far enough. Low glide ratings such as 1 or 2 are popular with upshot putters because they don't fly for distance but for a little extra control. Glide is different for different kinds of discs as well. A putter with a glide of 4 will stay airborne much longer than distance drivers with a glide of 4 ×

  • Turni 0

    Third in Innova’s flight rating system is turn. Turn is rated from 1 to -5?, with -5 being the most understable. The lower the numer, the more striking turn will result. A newer, slower-throwing disc golfer using an understable disc with a ‘high’ negative turn rating will enjoy great distance, as the disc isn’t going to fade as quickly. Also, players whose farthest throw is 200 feet or less probably won’t notice any turn in the flightpath. Once a player gets more speed and power, they will see their understable discs start turning to the right at the beginning of the flight before fading to the left at the end. Discs rated -4 or -5 are popularly used for rollover or roller throws by experienced players. Some discs have 0 turn which means that they'll start to fade when they run out of speed during the flight and at no point will they turn. It's important to carry at least one disc with a high turn rating in your bag for rounds. ×

  • Fadei 1

    This last rating category ranges from 0 to 5; with a disc rated 0 being the straightest finishing, while a disc rated 5 fading the most during the last portion of the flight. Even discs rated lowest in turn will still ‘fade’ as the disc slows at the end of the flight. A disc with a higher fade rating is useful for a hole with a dogleg. Straight finishing discs are great for control, discs with little fade are normal. If you're a Right-hand backhand thrower you'll find that almost every disc wants to fade to the left at the end of your flight. Discs with a 4 or 5 fade rating are excellent in heavy winds. They sacrifice a little of the distance but make sure that the disc won't do anything unexpected. Discs with a low fade are more susceptible to being affected by the wind. ×

Product Description

The Discraft Putter Line Soft Roach Disc Golf Putter is a floppy disc that is perfect for sniping chains with. As a thrower it's good for slow turnovers but you're going to love this disc inside 100 feet for its chain banging potential. It's beadless and the top is flat to a slight puddle top.

The Roach was originally the 2015 Ace Race disc, so it was designed to hunt chains from short distances. If you're looking to throw this as an approach disc it's very glidey and has a very neutral flight. You can expect it to hold whatever line you put it on whether that's hyzer, flat, or anhyzer. The Roach will carry and is accurate within up to 200 feet.

As a putting putter it's that solid combination of high glide and a little stability at the end of the flight. Aim straight for the basket and you don't have to move where you're aiming to the side very much at all. This is an excellent choice for players of all skill levels from beginner to touring pro.

Putter line plastic from Discraft was made specifically for putters to be soft. It offers the best grip possible and those little dings you get from hitting metal will only increase your grip on the disc and improve your chain catching chances. This plastic varies a little but it's generally soft and feels like a jawbreaker plastic that's been left in your car on a summer day. In the cold weather this plastic is perfect for not getting overstable.

The Roach is made to be your putting putter. Inside 100 foot range of the basket it's quite good at snagging chains. As an approach disc it's a great control choice for all your high glide needs. Snag this disc and be shocked at how superb your shots are.
