I've almost bought one from the factory store since they've dropped them to $20, so...

JB Pipelines are just PL Pipelines with a cool stamp

Not really. The plastic seems different. In my opinion, this mix should replace the current proline mix.

Ive contemplated picking up a couple more at $20 a piece, but with them being such a limited run, I dont want to get attached to them.

Is the JB blend more like the gummy First Flight blend or the stiffer 2nd run?

The sig pipeline is the flexiest out of the group that I have. It's also got a tick more high speed turn when new compared to SP and PL of the same weight.

Unfortunately I lost it in some very tall grass yesterday. Going out this morning to see if I can find it. If I can't I don't know if I'll order any more tour series this season. Bought 4 hurricanes, since they are a bit more overstable than stock PL/SP. Might just work on beating in the FF and PL pipelines I have instead. I try not to get attached to limited runs also (but I do love some jawbreaker wasps)

Theyre more firm. Its almost like the DGA soapy runs...only its a little translucent. The mix is kind of hard to explain. Its a good mix though.

How's the stability spectrum on these, generally speaking? The 169 PL I have is quite a bit more flippy than the Sig PL.

In my limited experience, it seems from least stable to most stable:
PL > Sig PL > First Flight > SP

I don't have very many specimens of each to base this off of though. My 169 PL is like a flippy mantis

The SP's definitely have the most stability. As for the prolines(non-sig), it depends. I have a couple of non-FF's that fly just like FF's. I've also hada couple of non-FF's that fly less stable than the new Sig lines...but have only seen a couple that were like that.

I did speak with Sylvia at the DGA warehouse this morning about the JB Pipelines. She stated that they're definitely not like any other Pipelines and we probably won't see them run in that plastic mix ever again
