I thought the Luna was ok but I liked the roach better in just about every way and I have gone back to the P2 because I think it is a better mold than either of them. The Luna just didn't ever feel right in my hands. I feel like it is a little bit too shallow and it was extremely slippery and I like stiff putters. It had a texture to it but I had so many slips putting or throwing it. I think damn near any decent putter mold flies the same in the circle but on edge of the circle putts and longer it took more to get it there compared to a roach. Driving with it was ok too. It went pretty straight with a mild fade. Being flat and shallow it went pretty quick for a putter but didn't glide like what you see in a normal putter flight. I personally enjoyed the roach once again more than the Luna for driving because of the extra glide. You can just perform more shots especially the touchy ones with a disc with more glide to it. I'm glad some of you found your dream putter but I think it is a slightly faster, little more shallow, little less glide, roach. Overall, meh.

Spot on. I would be interested in a premium Luna as a thrower.

Luna is plenty stiff. Unless you're comparing it to KC/McPro/CT, all of which are much slicker though. My D and JB Roaches are tackier, but still, the Luna didn't slip on me once. I like Aviars...dislike P2s.

I haven't had any slippage problems with my McBeth prototype putter through two full rounds of putting with it. But I would say the Luna is not as firm as Classic/ZeroHard/BTHard, at least mine is not. Not as firm as a Supersoft Wizard, either...

Huh, you really that sold without even trying one? Watching videos of people throwing the Luna, it looks significantly more stable than a baseline Pure. I guess maybe you could work a Luna in for a while to cover the same lines eventually, but I wouldn't away put your worked in Pures just yet...

No, I am not jumping the boat, just excited about getting OOP discs out of my bag. Admittedly, I would like a tic more stability. I would get a 170 to compliment the 175; jump putts and such...

It's really more about feel in the hand. I used to putt with XDs, so I like the low profile for my release.

Ill probably never putt with these. But i am so excited to throw them. The videos look great and the mold feels sooooo good. Also interested to see how the plastic blend holds up
