You may be disappointed though cause the k3 berg flys much like a k1/k2 berg.

I like how my berg flies, I just don't like premium plastic for putters. Could be a mental thing. I also have read the flight plate is flatter in the k3. Is that the case in your experience?

100% yes. I was pretty disappointed by the hand feel when I got my K2 Berg, both in terms of the floppiness of the plastic and the weird volcano shape of the flight plate. Also, I didn't notice any magical extra grip in my one wet round with it. It still felt slick, like every other premium plastic does when wet.

K3 Berg feels way better to me. It's a nice firm putter plastic, and the flight plate is much flatter. It's basically a traditional thumbtrack in K3, not a volcano at all. Feels like an entirely different disc compared to my K2.

Absolutely. They are akwardly flat. I like putting berg as well though I am a K2 berg guy.

K3 berg is flatter than k2 (or really more of a pure puddle than K2 with the mound in the middle), I find the K3 is easier to grip comfortably and i have more consistent releases with it. Only time i prefer K2 is wet rounds because i find dirt & mud stick to the k3.

K3 also beats in to have less fade, and makes a better putting putter for headwinds or precarious landings. K3 berg plate firmer than K3 Reko.

I gave K3 rekos a run for a few months as primary putter, have moved onto stiff Yetis. Still use K3 Berg for situational putting and controlled upshots.

I only use my K1 Berg for FH's. I never liked the BH grip. For FH's, the grip is great & it performs really well. The FH roller with the K1 Berg is so useful if you play in the woods.

What's so great about the FH roller with a K1 Berg in the woods? Does it have tree root avoidance capabilities?

K1 Berg does have excellent off-road handling. When I do FH roll into an unseen root the Berg often pops up over it & continues to roll. Due to the flat edge.

When obnoxious roots don't ruin the fun the Berg will FH roll through most any tight cluster of woodsy trouble.

Just bought a K1 Glow Berg with some funny money from a recent tournament. What should I expect compared to my Glimmer-X Harps?

I've never thrown a Harp but I assure you the Berg will impress with it's sluggish, dependable & unique flight. I dare you to find a short range FH P&A that is as easy to park in front of the basket. It's the one mold I would have a terrible time trying to duplicate from another company.

I'd have to argue a scale in fossil flex just this just as well. Though I have a personal preference for beaded approach discs. Do I ever wish there was a beaded berg... give us a Berg-x!

It flies very different than a harp though, and won't skip at all.
