Neither really resonated with me but the R Pro Pig works great. Also the new Tar Pit Stego I just picked up has been an absolute joy for spike hyzer a I want to splat into a puddle on contact.

Sorry for the thread drift, I can’t stop myself.

I generally don't like softer plastics, like the BT Soft, GStar, and Discraft's X plastic, so while I may try a softer disc here and there, I tend to not buy them.

More to your question: I have a couple of BT Hard and TP Harps, and a VIP one somewhere that I never used much. So I'll take your word about the performance of the BT Softs.

I don't have a Harp or Zone, but my soft Suspect is quite a bit more os than my other Suspects. Coincidence? Probably.

Neither. I would go with a Classic ROC if they made the disc in a plastic other then Star as well, I want a disc mold I can use for wind putting as well as a driving putter/approach. I went with the Shark in 2014 for the Approach to very short midrange slot as well as driving putter slot having used an old DX for long long approach shots in the 2000's just using a non deep Wizard for approach at the time. Currently I have a Star and a Pro in my bag with back up Star when 2019 the oop mold was getting hard to find at 175 grams +/-- 2 grams. I have now 2 backup star and a messed up almost G-Star Shark at the weights I want, the Almost G-Star will be a replacement for the Pro Shark when that disc goes from nearly neutral to a true US.

All the ones you mentioned serve a different purpose. The Harp and Zone are better for forehands, late fading shots, flex lines and spike approaches.

Classic Roc and Shark are much straighter and don’t manipulate on the same lines. The grips are not ideal for FH either.

I will stick with the Harp here.

No but the Cassic ROC and Shark both when thrown slower for approach shots will hook up for late fade shots on an apporach and the Shark will do for some shots a flex line if thrown with a little anyhzer the way a Harp/Zone is done. If I had to chose a disc like the Harp/Zone it would be a Sinus as those are a Pig type flight yet have better feel in the hands, not as deep.

My BT soft harp looked like a dog ate it, and still maintained the stability like day 1.

What is it about the BT Soft plastic that makes them look so ugly so fast? Seems like it warps and absorbs dirt or something. Not that it affects the flight, thankfully

Maybe we should reset this poll to include a couple others that have come out in this class?

I think the AviarX3, maybe the P3X, the razorclaw, and the A1 (or 2) can fit this category (somewhat fast overstable putters that still have a little glide to them).

Personally, although discs like the rhybo or pig may serve the same kind of purpose, they are built so differently!

My two cents. Zone ftw, either way.

I mean, this thread was made five years ago. Hopefully the original poster has made a decision by now.
