So I would say fresh, deflashed 158 G* RR is similar to a 2-month old 166 Tournament Hatchet.
The 157-8 Starlite I have would make a nice stable complement to your G*. I believe they are generally all like that. If you were ever in the hunt for such a thing.

Cool, thanks. I have tried 157-8 Star RRs, not sure if all RRs that light are Starlite, but I'm pretty set on Plasma Insanity for the turn-and-fade fairway slot.

And yeah, I'm probably throwing even shorter now than last time we played.

If we ever manage to catch a round together again, we'll likely be looking in the same places for our discs then.

So is anyone buying the Barsby RRs?

I've been to two different Dick's recently and there have been a lot of his disc at each location. Just wondering/hoping the best for him regarding the sales.

2018 and 2019 were the most stable version of the Roadrunner until the Halos came out. I absolutely adore the Halos, so the Barsbys have been put in storage. If and when the Halos season in, and when they become less stable than my Barsby, then they still may see the light of day beyond just fun rounds.

With that, before Halos came out, I tried stocking up on Barsbys so I could slow the seasoning across all of them. However, the 2020 version is incredibly flippy out of the box with zero (negative if possible) low-speed stability. If they flipped over, there was zero chance of them coming out of it. To make matters worse, they had no glide. I absolutely hated the 2020 run. Do not get me wrong - I love the flippy ones - I have a 15-year-old PFN Star, a seasoned GStar, and a newer Champion Glow that flip immediately out of the hand, but they have enough stability on the low end that once the flip is complete, they will hold and fly forever. During calm conditions, I usually try to use them as my big bombers.

157 G* RR has been my woodsy fairway jam lately. I'd like to keep beating it up until it develops a late turn, which is a shot I've been missing for a while. I even toss it sidearm from time to time.

I've been throwing a star RR with a little Barsby logo on it. Never tried the tour series. I've been getting back into RR's recently. I forgot how nice they are.
