I just ordered a Leo Piironen Luster PD2. I'll give it a shot. Thanks for the help!

So guys, I love the PD2. The feel in the hand is super comfortable to me... I bag one luster to be my xtra OS distance driver alongside a cycle of Scorpius’s. But I just looked back and read that the flat glow PD2’s can be great all around distance drivers. Could I replace my Scorp’s with some glow PD2’s?

Glow PD2s are pretty flippy for a PD2 but they do go far!

a pd2 could do it, but something like a stiletto or x1 would probably be better. i do not know what current runs of PD2 are available that are flat and also overstable enough to your liking. perhaps someone else could chime in.

the pd2 is more like something that would replace a beeftastic (for the mold, anyway) star destroyer. i haven't thrown an enforcer except once or twice; not something i remember well. i have no problem throwing my PPD2 into 20 mph headwinds, but it seems you have more power and more wind to contend with.

i can send you a couple from my stacks for testing whenever you'd like. just PM me if you want to give them a shot.
Are the beefiest PD2s, beefier than a 1at run McBeth Destroyer? I have one that is like a Stego as a driver. It seeks the ground before it has left my hand.

Do they have turn straight out of the box? I throw 1.8 Sirius Scorps and for my arm (about 450 max D) a fresh one won’t turn. Just rides straight and fades. That’s how I like my fresh go-to distance drivers to fly.

I think esp with your power yes they will turn.

Similar, given my limited exposure to mcbeth destroyers.

Can you (or anyone else) compare Glow to G-line in terms of stability?

Definitely more OS. To me, the glow felt like a beat in SPD2. The G felt like a gently used PPD2.

The glow definitely won't "turn" out of the box, but if you crank over on it, it may not come back.

for reference, I have roughly 375-400 distance on FH and BH on open holes, probably shorter on golf lines
