I've had some protege ghosts that started out really slick and ended up nice and grippy after a few rounds.

Yeah just put another round under it's belt and it already feels a lot nicer. Just need to get used to how deep it is then I'll be set. Really enjoy the flight.

So, I'm starting to putt with the Clutch again after a 2 year hiatus. When Legacy first ran protege Clutches they were stiff with some surface grip. Later runs of protege were not nearly as stiff.
What do current runs of the protege Clutch feel like? I noticed they have a new stamp.

My main putters are white protege (new stamp) clutches and they are pretty stiff, but slick at first. They break in nicely and have a lot more grip once beaten in a bit. I have a couple blues as well and they are ever so slightly softer with a tad more grip out of the box. Not a massive difference, though.

Thanks. I'll pick up a few and put them in the practice rotation. I'm thinking about trying a lighter weight clutch for outside the circle putts.

Ok, so I picked up a new white protoge clutch. It has a little more flex and a little more grip than my old protege clutches.
Does anyone carry a premium plastic clutch? I usually don't carry premium putters but if a premium clutch has some grip and isn't bloated I might give it a try.

I carry an Icon an it's no different in feel than the 20ish Gravity Clutches I have. Used to own a handful of Legends and those did feel slightly beefier in the hand but even those were barely noticeable.

I just switched to the Clutch from Pa4s. I feel like with the Clutch I am getting a very clean release. What I like is that it seems very easy for me to feel the center of mass of the disc in my grip which helps me be target oriented with a good firm putt. I'm a push putter and I really like the spring from the protege but I suspect that as the temps get colder in the pacific northwest, I'll like the increased grip and give off the gravity. Both are very solid offerings that suit my grip and putting some quite well.

I picked up a couple gravity clutches that I'm liking for tee shots and approaches. My local shop has a few Icons, I think I'll give one a try.

I carry a Legend Clutch that feels great, and I throw it when I want just a little extra stability over the Proteges. Honestly, though, the Proteges fly so well off the tee I sometimes wonder why I bag the Legend at all. In most cases the Proteges cover everything I need.
