It will be interesting to see how the LUNA moulds up in ESP or Z. . IF they make one ( crazy if they dont )

I think it would make a great reliable stable to overstable putter in TI. I would definitely want one in that blend or ESP. Traditional jawbreaker would be nice to have as well.

Anyone else see the numbers on the NEW luna?? it said 3/3/0/3????? really? with 1.0 DC stability

proto was 2/4/0/2 with 0.0 - I feel it really flies 3/3/0/1 I just hope the next run is darn close to the Proto because I really like it, I hit a sweet 60 footer with it - made almost all my putts which NEVER happens - so ill say I like it a lot. hope the feel is still similar, I like the GRIT! and firmness

I agree with your 3/3/0/1 numbers from my sample of one. Have you tried a Roach? They booted your beloved Atom from my bag as a putter and S/US thrower.

Except I didn't agree that the Atom rules all. Roach seems to glide a little better for me and the Atom is a touch faster.

On topic, guy at my shop expects a shipment today from Discraft with the new production Luna.

Totally agree. 3,3,0,1 sounds exactly right for the Proto. I also like the firmness and GRIT of the Proto. I fear that they've changed it for the Luna.

I hope its not too much different - from what I gathered on my post on facebook someone said they feel/look the same just not the grit - so, should be the same exact disc basically - which is hopeful

Both are great discs - To me I prefer Proxy for throwing because of the plastic and overall flight in the throw. The Luna to me is a great all around putter but I would only Putt with it since I wouldn't want to damage the disc on a tree hit - where the Proxy handles that like a champ

If I'm going numbers (and yes its specific as hell) --PROXY: 3/3.5/-0.25/0.75 DC: 0.0
---------------------- -----------------------------------LUNA : 3/3/0/1 DC: 0.25

I dunno... that pebbly, gritty feel was a really important reason why I liked the McBeth Proto so much (that, and it kept going in the basket! ). I'll wait a while for the hoopla and prices to settle down before seeing about trying a production Luna...
