Default Steady BL

Now that this disc has been released and we already had confusion in the Steady thread between the two I am starting this thread specifically for the BL (bead less) version.


I picked mine up earlier today and loved them in the circle. I push putt and they came out of the hand nice and clean. They flew nice and straight with a slight fade into the chains. I am going to clear water for vacation and will post some updates as to how these handle off the tee and on up shots.

I'm really quite interested in this disc. Beaded putters don't work for me anymore, even small bead like the challenger. Been browsing for a dga/discraft no bead putter for a while. Would love to hear comparisons

The BL is almost exactly like the Roach, in both shape and flight. The BL might have a slightly higher shoulder than the Roach, but they share the same flight characteristics out to 150'.

The BL is a straight putter with good glide and a touch of fade. It takes power without turning over, but needs a touch of hyzer to keep it on a straight line off the tee. The D-line blend feels good; fairly stiff with a little flex, so not KC firm but not floppy like the 1st run Steadys. I would've liked a more creative name, but otherwise the Steady BL is a solid putter.

Just got a pair of D-Line Steady BL and I’m pleasantly surprised by how low profile they are. I have a spush putt and the Steady BL feels and flies great. I’m looking forward to throwing these and seeing how they fly. Anybody else digging the Steady BL? I prefer beadless putters but I’m wondering if the regular Steady has a similar low profile feel?

Yes I am. I was reluctant to make the switch because I've thrown the Titanic more than any mold, and I had a few dialed in. But I kept missing short, and I found myself almost flexing to get it to the pole from 29'. So after 10 years putting with Titanics, they've finally hit the front cage iceberg and sunk out of my bag. They could return as a driving putter, but I'm exclusively Steady BLs now.

I'm bagging a Stone as my putting putter and a Proline Flex for power grip shots. The PL is a couple grams lighter and flies very similar. The Stone is swirly and has a nice grippy firm feel, but it's already nicked and one has a pretty serious gouge after just a couple backyard sessions. So it's just stiff base plastic with base plastic durability. The PL Flex blend has too much flex for a good putting release for me, but it's good for wooded lines, and it will help preserve the delicate D Line.

I'm really enjoying the extra glide. Where I used to feel like I needed to almost step through from 30', now I can get it there from a couple steps back without needing to step through. It feels like I added 10' to my putts. I'm still working on my aim and release angle, but I figured out my grip today, so it finally feels solid in my hand and clean coming out. I'm glad I've stuck with them and I'm excited to get them dialed in.

I definitely want a pair of stones for putting when the weather heats up! I think anyone who likes beadless Aviars would enjoy the Steady.

I wish Discraft would run Roaches in stone plastic. Is Stone equivalent to Crazy Tuff?

I believe Stone = Jawbreaker. If you like the Roach I think you would dig the beadless Steady, very similar shape.

No, the plastic isn't close. I putt and throw JB Roaches and the plastic is softer with more flex. I've felt some stone Steady BLs and the plastic is much more stiff. Pretty happy with the Roach, would like to try a stiffer putting plastic in hot weather though.

Good to know. I've never felt Crazy Tuff plastic so perhaps you're on to something... Hopefully someone else can chime in.
