Sold out in minutes here in Sweden, see if i can get a few from Finland when they drop tomorrow
Would be nice to get one in 167g one in 171g and a 175g one to try out

Hope to get a disc that is more US than my ESP Lunas. .similar to my beat in 1st run Luna in flight

The test flight putter that I have does not fly like an Aviar or Warlock. It is similar in high speed stability, but does not have as much low speed fade, making it a very straight putter overall.

Ok just got done with the first hour long putting session with two of my protos. The durability problem has indeed been fixed from the test flight. They are dinging up as base plastic usually does, but not nearly as badly as before. Hit pan and belt quite a few times since I haven’t putted in a couple months and there are no chunks and no delam problems (peeling). Putters feel great, fly great, and all I can say is I want some with just the new Paige Pierce logo, simple and clean. Other than that, these have officially kicked my roaches out of the bag.

Another disc this is just a copy of almost, is a Steady BL. The profile on the Steady BL is taller but given how in the DGA flight chart the Steady is a straighter flight disc.

I think Streets was meaning the Classic Grid Avair. The others all have a big bead or small bead that makes them more OS.

No, I meant this disc is just an overpriced, straight stable putter and the only thing really unique about it is PP's name on it.

So you’re judging a disc you haven’t thrown before? Got it.

Thanks for the feedback. Have you noticed any difference in the stiffness? For example, I feel that lighter plastics like white or yellow tend to be softer than the darker. It looks like you have a few whiteish examples. What say you?

I’m compared my blue test flight to the white ones you see there as well as my other protos. All the protos have the same stiffness no matter the color.it looks like. The test flight feels just a hair stiffer. Like I said I can dig into the proto a bit more and feels slightly grippier, like there’s a little more rubber in the blend but it isn’t a huge difference at all. They didn’t change the mold, the flight, really anything. Paige said they would work on getting the durability fixed and that’s really the main thing they changed.

I felt up some Fierces a few days ago at a store & they were definitely more firm than Jawbreaker.
