Sounds like I will have to pick up a couple APs to try. I've never really bonded with Aviars in any form, but I was always curious about the McP BBs. I just wasn't about to pay that much of a premium for them.

The bead helps it resist torque. This means you can flex it out and rely on the added fade. Or rip it on a flat hyzer, and watch it lock in perfectly. The P&A nose helps it push forward without dumping out. It is very WIZARD-like. It doesn't have the dump of something like a KC Pro Aviar or P2 where the fat nose causes it to DROP out early. The AP plastic gives it better glide. It really is to me, the perfect combination for a driving putter. Torque resistant, shape-able, and lots of glide.

the SS Big bead doesn't have as much glide as the AP BB, so I plan to use my SS Big bead as the upshot discs. Where the AP BB will usually see longer drives or teebox shots

Sounds good. I really wanted to know specifics like if it flexes out of an anny early or if it holds a hyzer well. It sounds sweet, though.

I was throwing it on 350-400ft golf lines for fun if that helps. I can do flex lines, power anhyzers, flip shots, long hyzers. Really anything with this putter. It is a real joy to throw.

Its a lot like a Wizard

I got some BBAP's in yesterday and am loving them for putting. I thought they'd be kinda slick but they have great grip and seem easier to release. Might just be in my head though. I have been putting with test run P2's and the BBAP seem to have a similar flight at putting speed with a touch more glide. Really interested to see your video ZJ gonna be hard to replace my Sirius Omegas for throwing haha.

its a very short DN video. 3 throws total

I would agree they are going to be similar to the test P-P2s. I used those as well, because I had always been searching for something in between the KC Avair and Omega. I finally found it with the BB AP/SS

I wish they would blend the too plastics! The SS is just too soft for me and i wish the AP were a little grippier i bet if they had a baby it would be incredible!
