What's wrong with trying new discs?

It was part of the Trilogy Challenge. Oops! Narrative blown. Do you really not know what task means? :lol:

I've been trying a BT Soft for about 2 weeks now. First of all, IMO the BT Soft is way too soft for me. I thought it might be good for cool westher, but it is like rubber. Second, the above reviews were very close to what I have noticed. It is glideless and kinda dumpy. Decent low speed fade, but not a total meathook like a Zone. In BT Medium it may be better. I've got 2 softs and they are going to be traded or given to the kids next door. My Envy's are better approach and driving discs, and my Swan simply works better for me inside the circle.

Played yesterday using the Harp for putting and approach shots. The VIPs are great for drives and approaches. I was surprised at the distance potential of this disc. I really enjoyed putting with the med Harps. I have a vision problem with my right eye and have a tendency to pull putts to the right. The fade on my putts helped with this issue. I also like the shallow profile and how this disc comes out of the hand faster than my Pure. Not going to drop my regular putter just yet but the results are positive so its worth some additional practice with the Harp. VIP will stay in the bag its just a great disc.

I am very ashamed of myself for this error. I thought I had grabbed the harp thread then chased my three year old around the house trying to take away the squirt bottle that he was using to torment the cats with. Needless to say I missed my chance to edit my post. As punishment I did not post in another thread for most of the day.

I've actually enjoyed it as a moderately OS putter, even if it's not in the bag anymore. I actually found it had more glide than the Envy in the circle, and it was quite predictable to drive with. Would I call it anything revolutionary? No. But it's a solid addition to the Westside lineup.

comparable to a kc aviar is kinda what it sounds like to me. i know the shape is different, but flightwise. i like the way it feels too.

if i could have a kc aviar in bt soft, medium and hard that'd be pretty sweet.

Haven't thrown a KC...those are the beaded Aviars right? I have tossed a Yeti. I'd say the plastic is closer in feel to old Yetis, but I wasn't using those for driving. Anyway...

You can probably find some Shields on the cheap here on the MP. I am not sure why a lot of people didn't like it, other than the fact that putters are very personal. I liked its flight more than its feel, so it didn't stick. But the shape is relatively innocuous and the flight is reliable. Good mold on the whole, even if it is a little deeper than I prefer.

What are you putting with these days? Is it something in danger of being kicked out?
