But one odd thing. . I feel like my JB Roach has less glide then the LUNA. . . .I feel that the ROACH want to hit the ground faster where the LUNA likes to gilde and stay in the air

I've got a Proto Luna & it is floatier than my JB Roaches. JB Roach is straighter but less glide.

Even though they look so similar they really feel different. The Luna is good for pitch putt style but feels so thin it just wants to slip out of hand when I release. Maybe it's just the proto plastic that I don't like?

Still hoping to see some CT Roaches. I wonder if DC would back away from that because it would hurt Luna sales? Being so close in shape a CT Roach is basically what we all want the Luna to be.

Just received my big Z Roach today. I recently decided to switch my whole bag over to discraft and a driving putter was my last addition. Love the feel of it already. Hopefully it's a workable driving putter that I can put on different angles.

It's exactly that. Stable & workable. It reminds a lot of an ESP Buzzz. Requires snap to go dead straight but if you finesse it you'll get some hyzer. The Roach has the most comfortable rim for a power grip of any putter mold I've used.

It works really well for big anhyzer shots. The stability keeps it from burning & it will just keep holding the line without hyzering out.

The stamp is whatever. I like to wipe mine with acetone.

I have seen a guy Disc Golf Nerd on Youtube who uses the Big Z right now testing to see if it makes his bag as replacing the lucid Caltrop for driving putter and no the Caltrop is more consistent, however he had to wipe the stamp on the Big Z Roach, tried for only the picture but the wording and Big Z part came off by mistake as well.

DGN does however like the Jawbreaker Roach for his putter as much as the Jawbreaker Magnet for putting. He might use the Jawbreaker Roach for longer putting/approach when the soft Caltrop he has for the current approach gets to US to work for an approach disc as the Soft plastic that Latitude 64 made is OOP and was as soon has DGN got his soft Caltrop. He likes that with the Roach on approach shots he can do his regular putt run with the Jawbreaker Roach disc with approach distance in unlike the Soft Caltrop he has to do an OS approach putt with. Disc Golf Nerd is thinking whether or not to use the Roach for a putting putter as well, probably just get another Magnet from his big Soft Pro D Magnet stash (DGN stocked up right before the mold got hard to find because he figured the mold was on its way out), since that is what he uses right now for his other non OS throwing putter and was also his putter mold before Jawbreaker Magnet came out. Jawbreaker breaks in too quick for the Magnet for him and I kind of agree.

The TI Roach is without a doubt one of the best, if not the best, driving putter I have ever thrown. It just goes straight and far, like a slower ESP Buzzz. I love throwing it in the woods.

I needed to show off my new pearly white Roach. This is the first white Big Z disc I've had. The red on white looks pretty good but I always wipe the stamps on my Roaches.

Should the stamp stay or go?

I've always thought the Big Z Roach stamps were kinda humorous. Never felt the need to wipe mine.

Stay so you do not need to mark up the disc for winter use. The Stamp actually looks good on this disc being the stamp is a color that works on the disc.

It should go. Then use a red Sharpie to make your unique marking on it, and you're set...
