I haven't had as much time to play with school back in session, but I did sneak in a round. I'm still playing with the same bag listed above and I don't see that changing anytime soon. I did, however, try a new pair of putters, Nikko Wizards. They will be my next attempt to find successors for my pair of Organics. I was impressed, especially with the glide and grip.

I continue to play sparingly with a busy course load this semester. Here's how my bag is looking at the moment:

167 4x Star Destroyer

175 2018 Sexton Firebird
167 12x Champ Firebird
172 4x Champ Thunderbird
168 Holly Finley Star Roadrunner
167 GStar Sidewinder
170 AJ Star TeeBird

177 Glo Z Buzzz
176 12x KC Pro Roc

175 BT Hard Harp
175 Soft Wizard
172 Soft Wizard
175 Nikko Wizards (2)

I put the Buzzz I used last season back in the bag. I originally took it out because it overlapped with the Roc3 I'd had in the bag for several years. In its absence, it seems to make a lot of sense. It complements the beat KC Pro Roc well. So I return to the Buzzz/Roc tandem as I have many times.

Great! In Star Plastic the Roadrunner is more stable than my GStar Sidewinder. Really nice compliment to it. Basically exactly what you’d want in a step up from GStar to Star. I intend to use both molds going forward.

Is it a poptop *RR? Those things are pretty stable...but they glide very well.

It definitely has some pop to it. The dome is one of the selling points. I've picked up a couple more of the HFs. Most of the other Roadrunners and Sidewinders I see in premium plastic are flat. Thats why I decided jump on this run.

I really like my sample-of-one Holly Finley Roadrunner. I always liked the Champion Sidewinder and the Falchion, but the Sphinx replaced them. The HF RR is similar to the Sphinx (which is allegedly a Valkyrie top and RR bottom).

If I used a full bag in a tournament, the Pro Valk and HF RR would pair really well. In my limited core bag, I just bag yhe Sphinx.

My Barsby is similar I think...I like flat RR's for FH but the Barsby will just glide for days.
