I submitted my feedback on Facebook and tagged Paige. She was having the same durability issues and has acknowledged they are working to find a more durable blend. Needless to say just the acknowledgment makes me excited for the next run of this putter.
The fact that they released 1100 putters at +$20 with bad durability doesn’t look so good for Discraft
But it’s smart to let the customers be the beta testers

Everyone knew full well that night these that they are test flight putters with no names, and experimental plastic with a brand new mold. This wasn’t discrafts choice, this was her idea and pretty much everyone is ok with it including discraft. And let’s be real a lot of these will be collectors discs for quite a bit of people. I’m still going to be throwing all of mine when they come in as well as they will probably beat in quickly to nice turnover putters but I can’t use them as putting putters in this plastic.

I was impressed that you already threw one of the signed ones. That’s a rarity of another kind!

I wasn´t being ironic, I DO think its smart to let the customers be beta testers and use the feedback.
I guess a proto is next then a 1st Run..and finally a stock run

The last approved disc from Discraft was the Malta so that putter is not even in the pdga approved discs list yet.

Well yeah, it’s still in the test flight phase, it won’t be sent for approval until the disc including the plastic has been finalized

It wasn’t as pretty as my other one and it was also number 46 so based off that I rationalized you throw it and I’m glad I did.
