The measurements provided by the PDGA suggested this would be a smaller rim sized Suspect. Harp is taller and feels beefier in the hand. I get a clean release from it but I was hoping for something more similar to a Suspect.

I am back to using my Suspects for what I was trying the Harp for. I am not that upset though, Suspects are my most thrown discs lately.

Thanks, that thing looks flat. Anyone got more pictures and comparisons to other discs?

This is an interesting disc. I know Westside Discs flight numbers are wierd as it is but.. 4 3 0 3 are same as suspect which is considered a short mid or 'tweener'. So this disc is a putter? I'm asking because I am looking for my shallow putter of choice. I would want to putt with a suspect but all I have is a fuzion. Haven't tried the hards. Aside from the fact that it isn't labeled putter messes with my OCD like tendencies.

I want to try a judge but the straight flight on them makes me think it wouldn't suit me. I like a slightly (very slightly) overstable putter. Ideally I would want one mold putter for putts, upshots, and drives off the tee. I felt a judge once and loved it.. Then read the almost zero fade part and it's got me turned off. I guess I could putt judges and throw suspects but.. Hmm.. Any recommendations?

Sorry to go off topic. First post btw

Also I prefer not to throw innova or Discraft except a select few which makes this choice even harder.

IMO the Harp is shallwer than the Judge and should be more OS. The ones I have in BT are much softer and more putter friendly. If and when the mediums or hards come out it could be a good all around putter. They are probably too OS for me, but if you beat in a BT for a bit it should straighten out.

I haven't been able to make myself throw the Hard prototype yet. I really want to try it, but it's one of a kind at this point and I'm hoping we'll get to see this disc in Tournament plastic soon.

You should just send that disc to me, and I will throw it. I am fearless. Plus I'll even pay for postage. I am a good guy.

For me, it's longer by just a bit, and more OS. I'll be keeping my Sinus in the bag to use as my OS putter, but the Harp will be replacing the Suspect. It's more along the line of what I wanted the Suspect to be. I won't be using it as a putter because it just doesn't feel like one in my hand. Kinda weird, but that's the way it is for me.

Can you explain why? What is this doing the suspect didn't and what is it you were looking for that the harp does instead? Thanks.
