Default Firmer alternative to K3 Reko?

Love my K3 Rekos, playing in the Texas summer though they've gotten too soft for my push putt. Anyone have some recommendations with similar shape/flight available in firmer plastic?

The Reko is basically a streamlined Gateway Voodoo. If you can handle a little more depth and shoulder, check them out as they're available in all kinds of rigidity.

Another option is the Pilot but Streamline. They're not identical but are close in depth, flight, etc.

I too am a Reko fiend, maybe one of the the biggest. I also talk with the Kastaplast owners occasionally so know that I'm trying to convince them to make a new blend (K4) that is firmer than K3.

If I had more money for RDG I would 100% try to have a Fossil run of Reko produced.

But in what plastic? I suspect if the OP finds the K3 too soft, the Jawbreaker won't be much better.

What would it take to make this happen?! I have been wanting stiffer K3 for a while. I love my Rekos, but I also enjoy tossing my Scales around too. I like the plastic, I like the flight, but I don't like the big bead.

Just wanted to follow up and say the Voodoo was a great recommendation. I've picked up a couple now in Soft and it's been working really well.

That said, if you ever do a run of Fossil Rekos.....$$$
