Don’t know why, but I always yank a Harp to the left on forehands. No problems with a Slammer, Suspect, Zone, Mortar, or Gator. Something about the Harp just doesn’t do it for me. They also seem really short on backhands for me, which I don’t run into with the other discs mentioned- except maybe the Slammer, but that’s understandable since it’s slower than the rest of ‘em...

I go with the Zone. I like the feel a little better, and I haven't thrown a Harp that was as overstable as some puddle-top Zones. Meanwhile, the D Zone is very straight with a still healthy fade, and can work into a wicked quick hyzer-flip to flex disc.

I recently got both of these.
I did a short field session to compare them, and my initial impressions were more favorable towards the Zone. It felt better in my hand for the fan grip (I only throw backhands), I guess with it being beadless and not as deep. I had a cleaner release with it. Didn't notice a huge difference in the lines between the 2 of them. Going with Zone for the next 10 rounds or so and then will re-evaluate.

I probably voted in this years ago but I'll say zone again. Best fh putt/mid in the game.

Necrobump...

Which plastic blend for the Harp is going to give the most consistently OS flight? Bt Hard? Moonshine? Hybrid? VIP? I'm not going to include the VIP-X as its not easily accessible.

In my experience BT Soft. It will look like trash in a few rounds, but flies great and OS for years.

I'd say the premium plastics (meaning not the BT Hard/Medium/Soft). And they won't season in as quickly and lose fade.

My pool is limited, but I have been throwing VIP harps for 4 years at this point.
I had a medium once but it got to the point where its flight was similar to a fresh(er) marshal so I dropped it out and never bothered to get another.

My VIP harps all have a very similar flight including my VIP-X, I rotate between 4 main ones because I got a misprint pack years ago.
The most seasoned one is still at least a 0, 2 if not even 2.5-3 when it comes to fade.
Messing around with other peoples harps and just seeing the flights, VIP is not the most overstable out of the box, but I would say it holds the same flight for the longest.

Lastly, if you have an OAT-y putter flick these are not as reliable as there BT counterparts, but for smooth FH and BH approaches, they feel great.

Have you thrown a BT Soft? I agree with you on the medium and hard, but the soft ones typically puddle top with dings and it magically makes them hold stability. I have both a TP and a VIP and I think TP is also well OS, but the soft ones have some wizardry.
