Default Challenger SS

For those of you at Ledgestone, what's the deal with the Challenger SS? Does anybody have a profile picture of one? Is it simply a challenger without the microbead?

Less OS Challenger? Sounds VERY interesting!

If this is a beadless Challenger (Chally top w/straight SS style wing), I hope it gets released in ESP or Big Z right off the bat.

Rooting for less stable than a Roach. Would like to see a PA4 stability putter from them. Curiousity piqued.

What would the purpose of an SS be? I can take my crystal challenger and put it up on an anny and it holds all the way to the ground. Thrown flat and level and it is laser straight. I really don't think it shows any OS tendencies unless thrown high and given a chance to stall out.

Isn't a Roach a beadless Challenger? I am interested in a putter that is less stable at slow speeds for long putts.

You and I must have very different Challengers. My CryZtal Challenger is as overstable as any P2 I've thrown.

a roach is more of a beadless focus

If it's just a tick less stability, I was thinking I could use it for touch upshots, or on longer holes, hyzerflips to straight.

I agree, the Challenger is fairly neutral. The bead I like for putting, but doesn't feel great with a power grip. The Roach feels perfect for driving, but if I can get something for upshots with a nearly identical feel as my putting putter, it'll add some cohesion to my bag.
