If I were going to give credit to a disc for Paul's win, I'd credit the Anyx before I'd credit the Luna.

I got some Protos, I snagged some first runs (the original first run--they later made more labeled first run but they came out softer, now the current stock run of 'baseline' Lunas has a much softer feel than any of the earlier ones I've used. I REALLY like it though (going to be WAY better in colder weather) Its very similar to Prodigy 300 for tackiness and firmness. In between trilogy medium and hard putters - not as flexy as medium (but close) - seem to stick chains better but I did notice it wasn't as OS as any of the others, this newer run of softer lunas is like 3/3/0/0 (calling it a fade of 3 is just a lie) - as weather is approaching the cooler months in the fall I'm glad to see that the Luna now has a couple firmess to choose from and now Big Z as a thrower and hopefully a Z Glow for the fall to make a more OS version, all around the Luna has been good for me.

Nah, he'd have thrown a Nova on some of the shots and beat in Roc3's on others. Putting is putting and all in your head and technique. Having a disc you trust in your hand can help with the mental part though.

However, he clearly likes the Luna a lot as this is the most I've ever seen him throw a putter compared to reaching for mids in so many situations. So clearly he has a ton of confidence in the disc.

McBeth is the reason McBeth won.

I think the move in it self had a big part in his win, the move made him practise a new bag in the of season . . . he really had to put the hours in to learn the new discs.. . that helps

And just "something new" may have given him a "fresh start" . . . but i thing he could have changed to any brand and still win.

His putter was not that hot in the start of the year. . it΄s not the LUNA that has gotten better, it΄s Paul

Not at all. Archer not the arrow. Paul is proof positive of that. He won with Innova, he is winning with Discraft and he'd win with Trilogy, MVP and heck even Prodigy.

Default Luna types

Can anyone compare/contrast the different Luna runs...I have a few promos and the big Z..I’m curious about how the first runs and current stock runs feel and fly. Thanks

Not sure. There is a limit to the its the archer not the arrow argument obviously. It'd be a safe bet though that he'd beat 99% of the DGer's in the world with that brand. I do know that he'd still beat me like a drum with a stack of paper plates. Of course if you've seen me play you'd know that's not saying much lol

just look up a few posts --- but basically : Proto: lil bumpy hard rubbery feel - fly straight with slight fade, First Run: Harder and Slicker, slightly different hand-feel, Overall same flight-maybe tiny more fade, but not much - Current Run: Softer, smooth, grippier than any of the others, flies straighter, less fade.

I have used all 3 versions so that's my take

I have not used a Big Z - but I hope they make more in other plastics to be a more Stable/OS thrower.
