I prefer the Proto but the 1st run are fine, good stability, firm but grippy. All around a nice putter
I was talking $&!+ about the Luna earlier on this thread but it's really good with a pitch putt. I had been using it with a pure spin putt & it wasn't working. Been trying to get back to a pitch & the Luna works really well. I still don't like the proto (crayon) blend so I will definitely get my hands on a 1st run.

I had the same experience as you. I was pitch putting with Wizards, switched to the Roach, and developed more of a spin putt. Tried the Luna with my same spin putt as the Roach and I was having a terrible time. Revisited the Luna using the same putt pitch putt I used with my wizard and I'm putting just as well, if not better, than I ever have. It's like a wizard that I can putt straight at the basket outside of 25' instead of playing the fade.

First a Proto, then the large 1st run at a big permium. . when will we see a "normal" run o LUNAs ?

Not surpriced if we soon will see a premium plastic 1st run at $20 a piece.

Discraft is really milking the "1st run" thing at the moment. . . i wonder how many runs of "1st run" they have made?

agreed, they were overpriced....bigtime. A new electron putter cost like $12 and they were getting 20$ for these. sadly I still got a bunch haha. but I really like the luna so.....alright I guess

I'm really glad I gave the Luna another shot for putting. Using the old style I used with my Wizards I'm putting better than I ever have. Such a clean release.

I made some huge putts last round from outside the circle and circles edge. Unfortunately they were all par saves.

How is the Luna for loft putting (that is the closest I can describe the horror that I call my putting style)?

This is my putt style but from between the legs instead of off to the side. I played this game my entire life but on slate boards (PA slate belt). It worked out well for me with the wizard, works even better with the Luna.

Hahaha, and I remember when we all talked about how overpriced Electron was at $12 for its (lack of) durability. Honestly, buying any baseline plastic for more than $10 just seems kind of ridiculous to me. But whatever; I'm not going to tell anyone not to spend their money on whatever makes them happy (and makes them putt well). Putting is a mental game, so if spending $20 per putter gives you the confidence to make putts, then more power to you. I'll just make mine a whole lot cheaper.
