I doubt anyone would spend $50 a disc on these for a thrower, that's usually reserved for people who are already addicted to old school Innova mold/plastic combos that they believe they can't replace any other way.

Especially since I could just throw a Big Z Roach for $14.00.

Please Discraft give us a 5X Premium LUNA in 2019. . . this is Discrafts "most wanted" disc so why not just MAKE them?

They called them warehouse finds, didn't look like they had very many.

So they say, I'd like to find a Big Z Luna for $15 to see if it is a bit more OS than the Roach.

From what I could tell, they are so close that at my skill level there is no difference at all. They feel the same in the hand, they fly just about the same. If you wipe the stamp I'm 100% that I would not be able to tell the difference. Once there are multiple runs of Luna's out there they are going to overlap just in normal run variance i.e. a particularly stable run of Roach will be slightly more OS than a less stable run of Luna.

So yeah, no way in Hell I'm buying a Luna when a Roach is cheaper. I mean I'm a disc golfer, fer God's sake! I don't know who these people paying $50 for a Luna are, but they are unlike any disc golfer I know.

I putt and throw JB Roaches, tried a proto Luna to see if I liked the plastic but the more I've thrown the JB, the more I like it. No way I'm paying $20 for mid grade plastic putters either.

I've tried Big Z and Ti but I need something a bit more OS for Okie winds, short of my Zone. Thus, I'd like to try a Big Z Luna. Maybe I'll find one for $10 in a used bin, until then the Envy stays in the bag.
