Default You throw Swans

Would you want to buy a VIP Swan? BT feels great but durability is terrible. So?

I actually pawed quite a few Swans last week. Felt nice, but I didn't pull the trigger. My putters are set, I was pretty much looking for a shorter, neutral woods approach disc and ended up buying a Fluid Judge instead.

Scale, Wizard, Swan is a great putter pairing. Been loving that setup.

I think even more awesome would be driving set-

VIP Harp, Opto Pure, VIP Swan

I putt with a Medium Swan but would love one that was durable for turnover drives. The disc just feels awesome in my hands and releases clean. Perfect disc.

I like swans but the rim feels odd to me. I would think about it as an understable Harp compliment, but then again the VIP harp is much more understable than a BT anyhow.

Don't throw the Swan anymore but I'd snag a VIP for fun.

Interesting that you feel that way, I've had really the opposite experience with my Harps. My fairly beat BT medium Harp is wonderfully glidey and gives me easy distance on a slow throw with a bit of turn and a reliable fade. My VIP Harp on the other hand I have to really put some power into to keep above the ground and moving straight before dumping off real hard!

Back on topic, yeah I might give a VIP Swan a try, but would be even more interested in an Elasto Swan. That would be sweet!

Dang how could I forget about Elasto? No doubt Elasto is even sweeter!!!

I'd buy a stack, Swans rule.

Elasto would be money. Better yet Moonshine Elasto.
