Big Z Roach is a great thrower. Been bagging one for a few years now. People have been sleeping on them but watch Paul talk about it on his next ITB & it get super popular.

Valarie Jenkins Doss also used the Roach, but I don't remember Discraft ever using that to their advertising advantage. Anything that McBeast throws gets popular, but we'll see what kind of burst in popularity he brings to the Roach.

I have a TI roach and its more stable and a bit deeper than I was hoping. Still on the search for a perfect driving/approach putter. How different is the TI big z roach?

Big Z seems a little less deep than the Ti to me. I prefer the Big Z as a thrower.

Maybe I'll try one out. I love the way the nose/wing feels on the roach just don't like the deepness and stability. If not I think i may try and beat up a k1 reko, doesn't seem like K1 seasons well though.

yeah big z seems to mold up flatter. the first time I held my buddy's big z drone, I thought it was a different mold altogether it was so flat and shallow compared to the esp and z ones I have.

Dont miss this "putter round" video from Paul

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Uu_VITLAYY&t=268s

Fun to see him throw a Big-Z ROACH 360feet super straight, i have heard people call the ROACH US. . well Pauls throws shows thats not tru

Someone asked in the comments why he did not throw the LUNA. . Foundation DiscGolf responded

"Not Paul, but I think I can help. He only putts with his Luna and doesn’t throw it currently kind of like he used to with his mcpro aviars. The Luna seems to have less glide and be slightly more overstable then the roach when I’ve thrown it. I think the main reason is he likes to throw his putters in more premium plastic so he can really get to know the one in his bag before it gets too beat up. Hopefully that helped!"

Definitely sounds like McBeth's M.O. With Innova, he would only putt with McPro Aviars; I can't recall seeing him throw one on a drive or what would be considered an upshot and not a long putt. He would throw the Nova, and throw it very well, for those throws.

Looks like he has his Nova replacement, and it's the Roach.

I wonder if this means that the LUNA will not come out in premium plastics anytime soon

But its fun to see what he can do with only a ROACH and a ZONE. . and not so fun that he can outdrive my longest drive with a ROACH ?!! . .and makes it look SOO easy
