The Discraft Challenger is an amazing overstable putter, and very popular with advanced players. It can get around trouble for those long hyzer putts and is overstable enough to take a good amount of snap on approaches. Z FLX plastic adds flexibility for all-weather super grip and fewer skips, kicks and bounce-outs.

Each Discraft disc is rated for stability. At the far end of this scale is a stability rating of 3.0, which indicates a very overstable and difficult to control disc, such as thePredator driver, which has a rating of 2.5. Discs with a high stability rating will have a tendancy to 'hyzer,' and you may find it challenging to keep them flying straight.
At the opposite end of the stability scale is a rating of
-3.0, which indicates a very understable disc. These are much more easy to control, especially when the discs are new. Nearly all discs become somewhat less overstable as they wear.
The bottom line for your needs regarding stability is this:look for discs with a lower stability rating. Any Discraft disc with a stability rating at or below 1.0 will be more suited for your game.
The weight of a disc can also affect its stability. The rule of thumb is: a heavier version of any given disc will tend to be slightly more overstable than a lighter version of the same disc. Many of the pro golfers on Team Discraft throw the heaviest discs available. That's fine for pros, but you will want to start with some lighter weights such as 166 grams.
Some Discraft discs are also available in a special lightweight class known as '150 Class.' These discs all weigh 150 grams or less, and are generally the lightest golf discs available. They can be very easy to throw, and will go a country mile! Give one a try.
