This thread got me motivated to find a disc comparable to a chally ss in flight and hand feel, but in premium plastic. I ended up picking up a neutron MVP Spin and it fills the spot nicely. It feels familiar in the hand, and it flies almost identical lines when compared to my worn pro d Challenger SS. So I guess I'm content if discraft never produces this mold in a premium plastic.

Picked up one of these in Jawbreaker recently, I was looking for something to replace my Swan 1 Reborn as an US throwing putter, I like the Swan but it's getting to be too US.

Was really surprised by the Challenger SS, I throw Pures in gold line plastic (ESP or Star equiv) and the Challenger SS was a touch more stable then them. Lines and throws where the Pures will move right and stay on that path the Challenger SS just rode straight and faded out, really surprised me, wondering if I have an oddball one, thought it may be a misstamped regular Challenger at first but it doesn't have the bead.

Trying now to work it into the bag as I really like the Jawbreaker feel over the Gold Line plastic in the colder months for short touch shots, interested also in seeing how it breaks in.

Yep, I never noticed a difference in stability between the challenger and the SS version.

Wondering if there's much difference in the OS from the normal version or if it's just a big bead and same flight.

Kind of remind me of that video of Mcbeth trying a Challenger SS

I even though at first that the Luna was a rebranded Challenger SS in a different plastic. They feel very similar, same depth feel but the nose is a little different now that I have one of each to compare.

I've got a Pro-D OS and an X Soft and Cryztal Chally and the OS is more OS than my Cryztal and X Soft regular Challys. I kind of want an SS now, especially if it might be a bargain Luna option.

I felt the Challenger SS was actually more stable than a normal Challenger. I would often turn over a regular Chally, but the SS would hold straight every time. Had them both in Jawbreaker. OS (only had in D) had more dump.

That'd be the Roach.

The chally ss definitely starts off more stable than expected. It is basically a Luna with a little less distance potential. Where I really love it is after 6 months or so of putting, they beat in to hyzer-flip, slow turning throwing putters. I've been cycling them for a few years now. The first couple I got were in a firm pro d plastic, but I feel the plastic has become softer with the more recent runs.
