Yep. The 500 something caramel colored ones. Limited to about seven different special club or fundraiser stamps then about 120 of them released by DD in a big judge stamp. You can find them for sale sometimes. The limited availability makes them go up to sixty bucks sometimes. They were too hard to make in legal weights so it's a Moonshine lucid air plastic. I've got two unthrown and a thrower but not looking to sell. They feel ok. Fly alright. I still prefer dyemax Fuzion for throwing.

Finally got around to trying the Judge. I've played a couple one-disc rounds with it, and while i like the glide, I'm surprised how often it turns over on me. I've been using the Trilogy Challenge Shield a lot this winter, and haven't had the same issue.

Probably my form's fault; when I hit it just right, it gives a very nice long, straight flight.

Shield is a good bit more overstable. Judge can be very straight (stable) depending on how you throw it. Giving it more hyzer and a little less power usually lets it flip up flat and the disc do the work. The glide helps but it's certainly not the longest floating putter. It's a little prone to give bad results with any wrist roll. It's not the best in strong headwinds either. It can take some but anything a little stiffer for wind and it's going to flip fairly easy.

That's my experience, too: capable of some gorgeous straight flights, but not going to absorb user error or excess power. You definitely have to throw it like you're throwing a putter, if that makes sense.

The Lucid I tried was notably more stable, but I really disliked the flight.

Love me some Judge inside the circle, though.

Makes sense. You can power up a Shield pretty well. I like less is more discs, so I'll remember that next time.

It's deeper than the Swan and beaded, so it would take a while to dial in the putts. So far, not pretty.

Judge instantly clicked with me but I had been using Wizards and my only two complaints were the depth of it and how I needed a beat one to get the straighter putt flights I wanted. So that's exactly the difference in the judge, it's thinner and less overstable. I just didn't click with the soft plastic so I tried it, loved it, didn't care for the soft plastic and went back to wizards until the classic judge came out.


I like the lucid judge ok for a thrower but it's just not the same as a good fuzion dyemax judge with that little dome and super glide. I love them. I have moonshine, lucid, fluid and they just aren't as good to me as a nice dyemax fuzion. It's my ultimate upshot and driving putter.

I had a very similar experience. I finally resigned myself to give up the wizard due to its depth. In colder or wet conditions I could not hold on to it properly and was having many putts come out weak. I auditioned some soft judges but I could not click with them, despite really liking the feel, and went back to the wizards. I finally bought some blend judges and have been loving them for a while now. I will be testing out some prime judges soon and look forward to the results.
