Kind of fun, i had a small Discgolf tournament for 15 girls, age 18-23y and a brought a bunch of midranges for them to throw . .

Everyone wanted to throw my yellow Big-Z Comet. . .they all really liked that stamp. .. and they all hated my "no stamp" discs

Nice burst ( pink )and Tie-dye was popular. . but the Comet was by far the most popular. . . . the girls were VERY particular about how the discs looked. . .to get them to choose a disc was WAY harder than i thought it would be

Similar to the dudes around here that obsess over stamps.

I'm a visual person and a designer by trade, so bad stamps are a deal-breaker for me. You might find that silly, but to be perfectly honest with you, I don't really care.

Could I wipe them? Sure. Or I could just buy discs stamped with things that don't annoy me. And fortunately, most Big Z or Ti molds are produced in other plastics I like without terrible stamps.

Whhhhaaaaaaaaatttt?

Clearly I haven't been paying attention. (Goes out to supply of discs and examines differences between Luna and Roach)

They feel different even though they look so similar. Of course I've only held the putter blend Luna. The Luna is more shallow / that's the difference I always notice.

I prefer the flight & feel of the Roach over the Luna. I also identify with the Roach more. I too am ugly, resilient & scatter when the light hits me.

Yeah I was just joking but they are very similar. If you don't want to pay big z Luna prices right now a big z roach is a great alternative

It's noticeably different to me both with a power grip & fan. Luna always feels more low profile. Roach fills out my hand more.

When I put a power grip on my 'putter plastic' Luna my finger tips feel scrunched. Could be different with a Big Z Luna with the plastic being softer.
