It kicked the suspect out for me, it can hyzer a bit harder, and feels really good in hand. I HATED soft plastic, but this thing changed my mind.

Suspect was good, but anytime I put stink on it it just flew perfectly straight and laid down easy.

I really like the harp because it has low glide. I use it for a lot of approaches, it's very useful in the wind.

I HATED the rim on the Sinus so the Harp works perfect for me. I would say it's a little faster than a putter but definitely a slow slow mid if you want to call it one.

Nice predictable fade, plenty of HSS.

I got a Harp last week and threw it in a strong headwind. I threw it tailwind, crosswind. I threw it with max power and half power. I threw it lhbh and rhbh. I released it with hyzer and anhyzer. It always has the same flight path. No turn, no flip, going straight for a bit and have a nice but not crazy fade at the end. I couldn't get it on an anhyzer line without hurting myself though.

Sorry Sinus, you are out of the bag. The Sinus (fairly new disc) flipped in the headwind btw.

Tried the Harp toda in a round from red tee.
It is competing with the Zone in my bag but thats a tough spot to obtain.
Anyway this thing is different than the Zone. It not at low profile, shorter, less overstable and doesent skip at all.
Its a different beast and mayby it has its place in the bag beside the zone, but
theres just to much overlap between these two for me.
Great disc for approaches, spike hyzers and forhands but to soft in the current plastic, in my opinion.

I don't know why people keep saying its so fast and that it is a mid. It is definetly a putter. It feels like a putter. Flies like a putter. Flies slowly like a putter. Flies short like a putter. It's a putter.

Its not a Zone.

Took a couple tosses with a Harp today and was pleasantly surprised. Even though I don't have a big arm, it was still easy to work and quite reliable. The profile is really comfortable in the hand, too. I could definitely see using one of these off the tee on short holes, or for windy day approaches. If it comes out in higher end plastic, I'm betting it becomes a much hotter commodity.

i plan on subbing it in for my zone once i can get it in classic hard. in the wind i need a clean release; that soft plastic will wobble too much for my taste. the main selling point for me is the speed. if it's slower than a zone i'm all in. the classic hard will have more skip but i bet not compared to the zone.

How is it FH? Has anyone tried? I prefer lat64 to Diacraft but the Zone and Drone are both awesome FH discs.

It is no where near the zone or drone in terms of overstability. That being said, it's an amazing FH disc. I use it for FH upshots all the time.
