While the Tactic is listed in the putt & approach category, the first and foremost purpose of the Tactic is to act as a reliable approach disc. It has low glide and a very reliable fade to ensure reliability in all conditions. The Tactic excels on approaches and short drives from both backhand and sidearm, but when the headwind picks up, you may very well be finding yourself putting with the Tactic as well.
