The XD has a low profile, thin rim which promotes a secure grip and an easy, natural release. These features combined with straight flight characteristics make the XD an easy to throw and control disc. It is the most driver-like putter we have and is useful for putts, drives and approach shots. Good disc for developing a “touch” around the basket.
My main driver at the Worlds in 85. Great for long straight shots. When longer drivers came along, I started using the XD for mid-range shots.
I throw the XD in almost every round I play, as well use heavily as a teaching tool for beginners. The XD's low profile lends itself well for approach shots and even off the tee. I use the XD more as an approach disc than a putter, as it is a great turnover disc with a lot of glide. The XD's tremendous glide and straight flying nature help ease newer players into the sport with an easy-to-throw disc.
