Roach all the way.
Have you felt the premiums back to back? My BigZ Luna and BigZ Roach or my Ti/Cryztal/Z feel identical to me. (Agree the Rubber Blend and the First Run plastic definitely felt thinner in the hand.)

Swirl Z Lunas coming...https://www.instagram.com/p/B8za8CeA1q-/ Most of that new swirl Z is on the dark side, but I've seen some amazing Stalkers in it:

I haven't. I've got a bunch of premium Pa1's & they work so well as my OS compliment to the Roach.

Has anyone been able to tell a difference in grip between the colors on the stock rubber blend runs of lunas? I have 2 light purples and 2 blacks and they definitely have a different feeling to the plastic. I'm trying to figure out if they is a color that's generally more grippy than others.

Paul said in the Brodie "1st round" video that he would have a "Tour series Luna" at the "Meet the pros at Memorial"

Will this Tour Serie Luna be in the same plastic as the other 2020 Tour Series..Swirly Z?

EDIT missed the Swirly Z in post #561 . .that΄s one big stamp

I'm assuming these will be a limited release, then get sold on ebay for a premium?

Sometimes I just hate this game...

Also heard (was it on this thread?) the Big Z Luna is coming out later this year as a production disc.

Another question for all you Luna guys.
What is another disc with the same general feel and shape of the Luna/Roach that is very overstable?
Anything like the Zone or Pig or Gator overstable?

How stable is the PA1?

It looks like the LUNA is Pauls Tour Series disc for 2020 and the Z Swirl Tour Series should not be a limited release

Maybe a Luster Aviar X3 or a Jokeri

Hmmmm,
I have an Star Aviar X3 and I think I have a DX (base plastic) Jokeri.
Those actually are great suggestions.
I hadn't thought about the X3... It's flat, narrow profile and somewhat OS.

Thanks,

Also, excellent news if the Luna comes out in a premium plastic.
Been looking for one sine I got that one 5x Cryztal Luna for $25 and found I really liked it, but couldn't find another for less than $35. And the Big Z Lunas, forget it.

used the first run Luna today.

Pros, nice firm feel, clean release, makes far putts feel like nothing, made a hyzer putt around a tree into the basket from about 25 ft, made several other far putts.

Cons, it's so firm and slick that it spits out the chains easily, and if you miss a putt on a hill, man this thing will probably make you have a huge comeback putt.

Overall I might bag it as a far distance putter or to bend around obstacles when putting.
