Any news on this being released in a premium plastic? This would be an awesome disc in titanium or swirly esp. The roach just doesn't work out for me comfort wise, and the Luna goes too far for a throwing putter. It could replace my buzzz.

Just wanted to bump this and see if I could get some more discussion going. I picked one of these up yesterday and I’m testing it out as a putting putter. The feel in hand is phenomenal. Beadless, shallow and round. It reminds me a lot of a more shallow roach, a reko, or a pure with a round nose. So far it seems to be putting better than the reko for me. Straighter, more glide and a bit slower.

Highly recommend at least trying one out if your looking for a shallow beadless putter.

Also this would probably make an excellent throwing putter in premium plastic.

So the SS is more shallow than the LUNA or ROACH? hmm sounds interesting, i have tried most of Discrafts putter lineup but not the SS or OS for some reason

comparison of challenger SS and jawbreaker roach. Roach on the left challenger on the right.

also if someone could help me figure out image tags that would be great.

Seriously though, the challenger SS has got to be one of the most comfortable,shallow beadless putters I've felt.

Normaly you can just open the picture in Chrome and "right click" on it then chose "copy picture adress" ( or what it says in English, i have Swedish Chrome ) and the paste it here. . .but your picture was very large so i did it like this.

Open the picture, copy paste it to paint and then save it as large as you like.
chose attach pic and upload the pic

Then open the pic here, right clic on it and copy picture adress




Then paste the pic in the forum, and it will look like this:

Love the Chally SS it’s my putting and throwing putter. I was using the Luna m for a while and recently switched back. Hand feel is perfect and the flight is so damn straight.

Preach! I wish it would be more popular. I’m worried it will go OOP. Also would love to see a premium plastic version. Apparently Austin hannum bags them. Maybe if some more pros would bag this it would get more popular.

Same. I've been putting with one since they came out, and I was switching putters monthly before. I would love a plastic that holds up in the woods. I feel like discraft is just going to let this one die out unfortunately. They haven't released any premium plastics or made any marketing pushes. It's a shame because it flies so similar to the roach, it just has much better name, and a better hand feel for me.

Yep, in a stiffer plastic this would hands down be my favorite putting putter. It’s a shame that will never happen.

Never know, they still make the Putt'r in Soft X despite the plastic the mold is in being very unpopular. I do not think this mold will end up OOP if Discraft has not yet made OOP the Putt'r in its current single production plastic. They did a Pro D Putt'r one time in 2000's when the mold first came out, but after that nope only Soft X save for that one limited run in Z/Crystal Z.
