I never understood the hate for +molds or V-tech either. I feel like both have their advantages.

Agreed. I never disliked Plus mold discs, but didn't see them as being anything really special, either. But I did and do like a number of V-tech discs. The Stud,Colt, and Tomb are really good approach discs. I tried a Champion FR VRoc, and it flew very nicely. The VCobra is a sneaky long disc and very good in the woods, and I'd probably still be bagging it if mids were a more important part of my bag. The Wombat3 is not a bad disc, and the Whale is a good, straight-flying putter.

I guess some people just don't like new and innovative ideas, no matter how good the results are....

I've played two rounds with mine so far, and I like it. I've been searching for a putter that clicks with me, and I think this is it. I want a putter I can putt and throw, and I've never had good luck with throwing Aviars. I was using a Cro for awhile, and liked how it threw and putted, but the Bullfrog just feels better leaving my hand. Fingers crossed.

I want to experiment with putting them as well. I like the shallow blunt feel.

Does it really have as little glide as advertised? I could see that being useful in the circle on windy days.

I'll have a Bullfrog review ready in the next day or two, but in the meantime, here's some rim comparisons for yall.

Thanks for these pics. It’s really blunt, but has a micro bead. I’m getting away from beaded putters.

The L-molds are decent, some of the "3" molds are good, but I just can't stand the convex rim of V-Tech molds. The RR has a convex rim for a driver, and I'm fine with that, but I like to put my index finger along the rim of my putters and mids, and prefer both to be beaded, due to that tendency. My first putter that I really clicked with was a Rhyno, then the JK Aviars, then I was bouncing around from putter to putter, only to wind up back with Rhynos. The concave rim and bead make the perfect place to put my index finger, and muscle memory is hard to overcome. The same reason I have for hating the feel of the Buzzz goes with almost every beadless mid (I can throw beadless putters, but putting with them is a dumpster fire), or convex mid/putter.
