Not sure about CT, but I'd compare it to KC Pro stiffness with a bit more grip. And I'll just say from my experience (1 D Roach and 3 D SBLs putting in the back yard and power gripping out to 140') the Roach and the SBL fly very similar. They really are almost the same disc.

I agree that stone is closer to a velvety KC Pro, or maybe a S Wizard.

If you want CT plastic for a steady, try to find jawbreaker granite plastic. Don't know if BL is available in that though

I think Granite is the one I was thinking of that’s the same as Jawbreaker. I’ve yet to come across any Granite Steadys though.

Marshall street has some JB Granite Steadys. They are basically identical to CT JB.

I haven't seen it. You can still find the BL in the LE run of Swirly Flex online.

I'd love to see a run of premium plastic Steady BL to use as a driving putter. I'm actually liking the Reefs just as much for putting, but for stable drives the Steady is where it's at.

wow wow wooooow. I went out for a round today with 2 Steady BL's that I just got. Made all but 1 putt from as far as a few feet outside the circle. They dont feel as tall/deep in the hand as the warlocks I have been throwing for a while. Buying a few more immediately.

I got a couple LE Proline Flex BLs, and they're... flexy. Maybe a little too much for me. I prefer a stiffer putting putter, but I've been dabbling with these as my driving putter. They're just the tiniest bit more OS than my Stone BLs.

I've gotten to that comfort zone where I'm no longer thinking about how to putt it differently than my old putter. Now I'm just throwing at the pole with confidence. And the extra glide has really helped me with low putts. Now I laugh as it clanks off the top.

I've mentioned the Roach similarity, but I've also noticed it's very much like the Discmania P2, both in feel and flight.

Default Ice Steady BL

Our prayers have been answered and I'm honestly surprised it's happening this quickly! In case any of you haven't seen it yet:
