Default VIP Harp vs Tournment Harp

I have both and I think the VIP is a lot more overstable, and the TP is straighter a bit faster and has more glide. What are your thoughts?

I have found my TP to be faster but more OS, VIP has a dumpier fade but not as much hook.

Necro bump after Ricky Wisocky won the World Championship in no small part due to the Harp. Can y'all elaborate on the VIP and Tournament plastics and how the Harp acts in these plastics. TIA.

I had high hopes for the premium plastics, but both VIP and Tournament aren't as OS as I would've liked and both are too domey compared to the BT plastics.

Verdict: meh.

How do the premium plastics feel to you? What other plastics do they resemble?

I prefer the BT medium to VIP. It's a bit more workable for me.

The BT Soft is the one that I find myself reaching for most often.

The TP is in the bag now and the increased glide and gummier feel make it a favorite over my VIP. Also the top on my TP is flatter than my VIP. Which makes it a bit more OS despite the added glide.

VIP is still really good but I often use a Harp where I'd like it to hit and stick so the BT Soft is often in my hand. I think even though they look like death, it may be more OS than most other versions.

Quoted for truth. I've never had a TP but I do have a VIP. It feels more bulky in my hand than the soft and doesn't quite fly as well and as reliably.

The plastics are on par with the standard Trilogy premium plastics. Both are nice and grippy, with the TP being just a touch more stiff. Neither flew as OS as the BT Softs, which are awesome. As mentioned, they get super beat up and haggard, but still continue to fly/fade reliably.

Honestly, I wouldn't recommend the premium plastic versions of the Harp to someone who was looking to see what the mold was all about. I'd be in the BT Soft or Hard camp for sure.
