I got to pick through a stack of around 100. They had different feels to them. I found one that was pretty tacky and slightly gummy, but there were hard slick ones as well.

AND?!?!?!??

I just want to know how it compares distance-wise. If it has that sneaky glide dead straight forever flight of the jawbreaker blend, I'm sold even if it's a little more OS.

I still haven't thrown mine. With the way the market is for them, mine's too pretty to throw. The 5x Cryztals are very close to what you describe but have a bit more fade, while the POTY Fierces fly close to what you describe, but both are upwards of $35 just for a thrower right now, I paid 25 for the 5x Luna and 40 for the POTY Fierce I have. Both were worth it IMO.

Yeah, the Z runs are gorgeous. IMO that's the worst part of the jb blend lunas- they all look like their color scheme came from a 1990 hospital floor tile brochure.

Looking forward to hearing about the Zs, but honestly I'm kinda not because of how voracious the flip market has become. It's super annoying.

Y'all have at it while I'm happily throwing and putting JB Roaches. I got over the premium Luna after the first run of Big Z or ESP, whatever it was. Envy is a fine compliment to my Roaches.

Is my proto Luna worth anything? The one with the gritty plastic.

Yeah Proto Lunas are worth something. Would depend on the condition and stamp/color.

The newest run of Lunas seem to be softer than the earlier ones, and my Slomez stamped ones are money.

I was using roaches, but wasn't happy with the premium ones for driving and a plastic wasn't available that was stiff enough for summer. That led me back to the Luna. I have been liking it a lot. The rubber blend is stiff enough for hot summer days, but not as stiff as say a soft wizard. I like the current run better than the 5 protos I have collecting dust. I also really like the tour Z. It feels so much better in my hand than the premium roaches that are available. Nice low shoulder and some tackiness to it. You can throw them really hard without fear of it flipping over and a consistent mellow fade, 0/2 seems appropriate. They also go as far as my mids which is something. It sucks they cost more than your average disc, but I think I might be onboard for a bit.

This is my proto, threw it about 10 times, probably not an ideal color.

I've heard other folks on here complain about JB in the summer but I honestly don't notice much difference. Gets pretty hot here too. I'm fairly dialed in with them. I throw one that's fairly worn for straight/flippy approaches and compliment with an Envy.

Not the most ideal color (black, pink, white, etc.), but a cool stamp. I'd guess $30 if not more, depending on where and how you sell it.

Anyone else throw their Tour Series yet?

I bought a Proto, threw it a few times and was digging the effortless distance and accuracy. My Tour Series is all that, but with more glide I feel. Loving it.
