I partook in the evils of Facebook.... Managed to hit an auction so you are looking at the proud owner of an Owlenstein

Pretty good, but the picture is a little small

I have been using Firm E Atom for putting for year or so now, but started to test out Medium E Pilot week ago at Tyyni 2019. Feels more glidey, but didn't really fit that well to my hand at least initially. I then putted one round with Lat64 Keystone I got from Trilogy Challenge, and that felt amazing. But as wanted to give MVP change to fight back I bought two Electron Anodes as I though they would be closest to Keystone in terms of depth.

Yesterday I coded my own putting game, and today I started my personal Putting Battle 2019 where Atom, Anode, Pilot, and Keystone will fight for the place in my bag. Today was straddle putt day in gusty winds, and Keystone performed slightly better than others. But overall bad putting. I will explain the game later (probably separate topic), but essentially below the numbers on the lines tell the putting distance, and the lines track the cumulative scores over 10 rounds of 2 putts.

I think he wishes he had never put that garbage all over it and ruined an expensive disc...

It might be a mockup but it's not a prototype, not at least of anything that got made. The overmold is just painted on.

If it is a mockup, that might be even cooler though

I think that pic is a closeup of the stamp on the disc.

Good thought.. I will ask him next time we're chatting. If that's true it blew my mind!
