If you can get a Discontinued Slammer before they’re gone (They are on the shelf at the DD store in Kansas City), might be worthwhile. It’s like a Pig with the lip on top.
You've never thrown a Sinus. Great OS putter, a favorite of Dave Feldberg.

I think Nikko is still using them too.

The Crown still has its gentle fade to it so it feels like a slightly worn in Shield, but a bit shallower with a little more of a bead.

Side note: I did win a share of an Ace/CTP at the Trilogy Challenge throwing the Crown which got me $100.

I bagged Crowns for a season. It's a great, underrated mold. I ultimately moved onto Judges because:
a) I wanted more plastic options and a more reliable inventory, and this was pre-Nikko so Crowns were only available in a couple plastics and were often sold out; and
b) I wanted something a little slower, more workable, and that would beat into understable.

From what you're describing, a couple Crowns in different plastic types would be perfect for you. I think of the Crown as a "Judge Pro" - similar hand feel and flies just a touch faster with more late-flight fade. Also a great putting putter on a breezy day if you like a bead.

Thank you for the heads up! My bad for only owning four trilogy putters and using flight numbers for comparison of the rest.

Great info, appreciate it!

One last question for you trilogy experts....if one wanted a trilogy disc that was closest to a champion rancho roc, what disc would that be? Maybe a bard? Wouldn’t mind finding something OS between my vip harp and my champ eagle

Edit: I throw the Harp and the champ Eagle. The Verdict is overstable with glide in between those two. Lucid-X is fantastic. After lots and lots of tree hits, the fade mellows just a hair.

Tournament Bard is very close. The Origio ones are super flat and good for FH but the TP ones are awesome as a champ Roc replacement. I got fed up with paying for USDGC rocs a few years ago and switched to Bards and never looked back.

Anchor could work too, but it’s got a funkier hand feel.

Ended up grabbing a stack of X out crowns for $6.99 a pop in Orgio plastic. These things feel and fly fantastic. Also, really impressed with Orgio...as a baseline plastic it does not get enough love. Feels like a better kc pro to me
