I think discraft has the worst baseline plastic. I used to putt with only their putters but got away from them


Pro-D sucks, Jawbreaker isn't really better
I haven't really tried eveyone's baseline (no experience with Prodigy or MVP baselines) but I like Pro D over Soft/ Medium from Trilogy. I find it about equal to DX or Prime.

I don't like Jawbreaker but I like their other "baseline", Elite X, over any of the baselines from Trilogy though.

I really wish they would release more discs in Elite X.

It's a thumbtrack, not a groove top. The ones I felt were soft like Gateway ssss soft.

It felt much more shallow. I like Gateways low profile putters so maybe that's why I thought it felt nice.
If the thumbtrack adds stability think the Ringer gt will be a winner.

Based on durability?
If so, you're mistaken. I bought a stack last year (pic of Disc Golf Center purchase history attached) when they first came out, and that first stack is still in rotation. Wearing in in at the same rate as my Zero Mercys I used to bag.

If it's based on feel?
Well...that's like...your opinion, man. It would make me question your credibility though, because Zero Medium (and at the height of my Mercy putting days, I had around 15 Mediums mixing it up with the Hards) feels damn close to Jawbreaker.

I echo Civic's sentiments: Elite X is one of the best base plastics. 300 isn't durable and too rubbery, I prefer the more rigid 350. Firm Electron is awesome!

Back to the subject of the OP: MJ is putting Soft X Ringers...I wonder if he had any influence on this version of the mold?

I haven't had good experiences with any Discraft baselines. I didn't use them all THAT much, but from checking things out now, new baselines are far better.

Some sort of updated Pro-D and a Firm would open up possibilities...

I can definitely see MJ putting with these. He used to putt with a Rhyno and if I remember correctly it took him a while to find a putter he liked that was close to a Rhyno after he switched to Discraft.

the hard pro-d is ok the softer is crap jaw-breaker is money IMO on the Magnet with thin bottom rim the jaw-breaker still beat to fast for my liking bur since i switched to putting with the roach i love the jaw-breaker plastic. I haven't tried the the ringer in jaw-breaker but i am a huge fan of the dga breaker so hopefully i will soon.

Is the breaker a renamed Ringer? Just curious because I love my Ledgestone sparkle z Ringer's but can't find anymore in premium plastic. If anyone has any in premium plastic, lmk.

I'm pretty sure that the Breaker is a Ringer in different plastics.
