Picked one up Saturday night, haven't thrown it yet but have putted with it about 50 times. For putting, nearly identical to the judge, for my style at least. Seems like a nice putter.

(No, I am not suggesting it looked like a mid, so don't get all weird on me DGCR)

A good comparison in terms of how it flies is a Judge. Similar feel with the bead, similar stable flight. Maybe a touch faster/glidier.

This is definitely more OS than the judge. Has a good amount of glide and some healthy fade.. Slightly less than the shield. I really like it to compliment by broken in judges I think. Handles power very well. It actually kind of reminds me of a deeper depth PA3. Most likely will get one in tournament plastic.

I have two medium Crowns that I've been testing for a couple of days. IMO Crown fits exactly in between of the Judge and the Shield. It feels slightly deeper than Judge and it flies just a bit more stable / overstable. I get zero turn on a full power drive and a very gentle fade at the end. On a similar throw a fresh Shield has much more fade to it. I could easily replace my beat-in Shields with the Crown as a driving putter, but it seems slightly too overstable for my putting style. I think I'll stick with the Judge, at least for now.

The Crown is probably my favorite off the tee putter ever. Judges were too straight (weird problem to have but they almost never actually hyzer) and the shield was too overstable and lacked glide. The crown sits perfectly between those two, able to hold a nice hyzer or power up a little for a straighter but predictable finish.

Not really the kind of feel I'd want for a putting putter, but for drives it's pretty amazing.
