Congrats on the first mold it sounds and looks great. If you are interested in testers once you reach that point I would be interested.

im going to retract my statement of 2 2 0 3 and say its 2 1 0 3

it really does not float like my aviars at all. however im still digging it a ton. predictable drop for my hyzer putts when that shot is needed. great approaches. very predictable. im loving it more and more i throw it. im glad i kept it in my bag.

im wishing for heavy winds soon just so i can see how it holds up on windy days

Mike: how do you like the a Fossil plastic?!
It feels very nice. Its stiffer than I personally want.in a putting putter, but I think it feels great in a driving grip. The texture is nice, solid grip without being so tacky it wants to stick my to hand. I think it will offer a good combination of grip and consistency. Excited to throw it this week.

This is becoming the calling card for the Scale. It's a projectile like flight. You won't win any distance competitions with it but I'd bet you can place a shot in a small circle more consistently than someone using a glidier putter. The Scale is going to be an attractive option for people who rely heavily on their OS PnA for woods and placement shots.

I keep checking this thread and waiting. seriously, the more posted the better they're sounding.

This so much... Hahaha. I have tried 3 different Rhynos and only one was a straight to OS fade disc... The Asia Open one I own is like a Comet in that if I throw it flat, it will finish fairly flat/ straight ahead. The good one is good, and has a great skip if you want it, but is also a late run zipper top so I'm sure I will never find an exact replacement. My OS putter slot is essentially going to be the Scale or the VIP Harp when they are put into production.

Wow. That's it's almost surreal to see that someone is that excited for our disc.
I'm confident that the Scale won't let you down. I've thrown one from every proto run and they're all 0 turn/hard fade machines. That is going to be the major plus about bagging Scales.
