Anyone throw the 2019 glow k1 reko yet? How is it stability wise? Currently wanting to try the new neutron pilots and maybe a k1 reko again. I used to throw a k1 reko but it was just a bit too fast and stable for an approach putter.

Berg guy here but it should still apply. Fast as in flight or during the landing/skipping part? If it's the former then current run K1 Glow will be no different than the K1 you probably already own. Some K1s are gummier (for either mold, my buddy is a Reko lover) however neither of us have noticed any stability differences unless comparing to K3.

Hope that helps!

Got another K1 reko and man is that thing stable. Thrown 250-275 flat and it still has a decent fade at the end. Awesome driving putter but I can't approach with it worth a ****. Also picked up a gold line pure to test it against. I swear my search for a thrower/approach putter will never end.

You've probably answered this somewhere already, but what are you looking for in your throwing/approach putter?

Beadless,low ish profile, straight and glidey. The closest I've found is aviar pna or classic aviar but I'm looking for something in premium plastic. Those aviars beat in to turnover putters after just a couple rounds.

Have you tried a Warden? They used to be my putting putters until the Marshal came out. The Warden comes in premium plastics, and the Classic plastic is pretty durable as well. The Warden is beadless, has been said to be like the Aviars in feel, and definitely is straight and glidey. If you haven't tried the Warden, see if you can get ahold of one and give it a try.

K3's are a little less stable and available in lower weights. I have 5 in the mid sixties I was putting with for a bit. K3 is better than dx for sure but not sure if that is what you are looking for.

You must be playing in some serious woods to beat them in that fast. The pure is pretty much exactly what you've described though, so if it clicks with you that could be your winner.

If you're really looking to mix things up it's hard to get straighter/glidier than a polecat. It's not shallow, but I'd put it somewhere in the neighborhood of a PnA. Lids aren't everyone's cup of tea but they're a really fun option if they work for your style.

Is there a significant difference in stability between K1 & K3 when new?

Noticed that the K3 Kaxe starts out more overstable than the K1 (maybe because K3s are flatter and K1 has a dome) which is perfect for cycling. Just wondering if my K3 Reko cycle would benefit from including a K1 or if they are similar enough that I can stick to one plastic?

Speaking for my buddy.

He has four K1, two K2, and three K3 that he rotates/throws frequently. Of those all of the K3s are more understable than the six premiums he has. If you want a bit more beef that will stay that way longer for driving purposes/long approaches yes I recommend adding either a K1 or K2.

All this applies to the Berg as well for anyone curious.
