What RPM say: The Tākapu (or Gannet in English) is a stable putt and approach disc. In the wild it has bold colours, rakish lines and a wing span of almost two metres. Tākapu are not only among the most elegant of birds but are also masters of the wind and attack their prey with deadly precision.
The RPM Tākapu has a slow and very stable flight with a gentle late fade. The beadless rim and rounded nose fits perfectly into your hand and helps eliminate wobble. When thrown with high power they will hold their line like a laser beam.
The Tākapu is molded in 5 standard plastic types and with many effects. The Magma and Strata varieties feel grippy and silky and come in three grades of stiffness. Cosmic (translucent) and Atomic (solid colour) are super-grippy ultra-durable premium TPUs - Thermo-Plasticised Urethanes.

Takapu (Magma Soft)
Tākapu is a stable driving and putting putter inspired by the Aviar Putt & Approach mold, and flies like a P2. Rated: 2 3 0 2.
Tākapu is a beadless putter which may appeal to those who find the Ruru a fraction deep and/or a little large. It is slightly shallower, and slightly larger at 212mm in diameter.
Magma Soft is an ultra-grippy solid-colour plastic in a wide range of colours. Not floppy by any means, but certainly not a stiff disc. Fabulous grip in the wet.
When dirty, wipe clean with methylated spirits to rejuvenate the grip level.
