Dynamic Discs Eco Classic Emac Judge - Trilogy Challenge 2021
If you love the flight of the Judge but wish it had less of a bead and a bit less fade, you're in good company with 2010 World Champion, Eric McCabe. In the quest for his go-to putter, Eric approached Jeremy Rusco and Latitude 64 about creating a putter that sits in between the Judge and the Warden, and the EMAC Judge is the result.
The EMAC Judge features an incredible feel in your hand with a microbead that ensures a smooth release. Disc golfers using the EMAC Judge for approach shots will love the neutral stability with a subtle finish, and those putting with it will find a consistent flight with less diving fade than the original Judge. Eric is known for his world-class putting, so if you're looking for a putter that will take your game to the next level, look no further than the EMAC Judge!
Maybe it is because of the inherent textural variability of recycled plastic, or that I was introduced to it on a very wet day of golf, but the EM Judge just felt weird in my hands. Before you dismiss this as a subjective opinion held by a party of one, everyone on my card (except, ahem, Olli) was vocally in agreement that the EM Judge was not a disc they wanted to putt with. Granted, the advertorial blurb paints it more as a throwing putter for straight approaches than a putter for the basket, but why does the plastic have to feel so much like a budget children's toy from Mothercare? To give it its due, it is a good thrower. Flies stable and straight, hyzer flips on a mid-strength 50m+ throw nicely, and has glide for days on a flat-to-anny line that does not fade back. It absolutely has some game. But I cannot get over how little touch I get off the disc. It gives me no joy to give this a 3 star rating, but it was as "meh" a disc as I have thrown in a while. Saying that, if you happen to throw a DGUK Baron, and you like that plastic (!), and would like a less overstable version of it, then this may be the disc you have been looking for!
