Yeah, I got that bit. But if you look at my first set of pics, the ChallengerSS is an exact copy of a Challenger, just with it's bead shaved off. Comparing a Roach's profile to a regular Challenger should give you all the info you need.

Glad to see some variations of the Challenger being produced. Now let's see a......
Banger SS:
A beadless Banger GT would be incredible. Something in the .5 stability range. How is thing not happening?

Anyone able to compare Jawbreaker Roach vs Jawbreaker Challanger SS? Inbounds has their stabilities rated the same. Is it just a difference of feel?

My experience is that the CSS is faster and maybe less HSS? The JB Roach can and will do some amazing things, including late turn like few other discs I have ever thrown. CSS is to Buzzz SS as JB Roach is to Meteor. An overhead view might be similar, but the Roach will want more height, and also glide more. They do also feel different, with the Roach being a bit taller, IIRC.

I see your point. I am throwing a Roach, and putting with the Challenger SS. Just feels better to me. That might change in the advent that they release the CSS in a premium plastic.

^^^same. I'm on the fence about bagging the Challenger SS over the Roach. The SS in D and Jawbreaker, is as stable as my Roaches in BigZ and Ti, so if a premium SS came out, I'd probably like the range of stabilities in one mold. Putt a regular Challenger, approach and drive with the SS.

I prefer the feel of the Roach just a tad bit more for driving, though. That convex rim is such a comfortable shape for my power grip. I'm toying with the idea of putting JB Roaches, just to have some more conformity in the bag. Might do a trial period.
