Yep you're the only one....lol.

I use them for wind, low glide & hyzer putts though.

Shot +7 on my home course's longest configuration. Neither the Scale nor my Wiz was hitting first try. Still managed 2 birds, including the longest hole, but it was my drive and 2 upshots that put me 10' from the basket on a par 5. I missed 3 straight par putts into the cage. Left at least 5 strokes on the course, probably closer to 10.

The Scale was my primary putter for a little while; I was using it so much as a crutch to fall back on when the Warlocks were not working that I just started using them all the time. I mean it was dumb; I'd miss three or four putts, switch to the Scale and start making them. Why not just start out with the Scale and start making the first three or four putts?

I hurt my arm and had to go with an understable bag; I switched to the APX and the Scale went back to being the wind/utility putter. If it wasn't for that I'd probably still be using Scales as my main putter. It's such a good disc. RDG has had a several discs I really liked, but IMO the Scale is far and away their best disc.

I’m really excited to see more armor runs out there. Stegos seem like a no brainer since everyone throws them super hard and they hit the ground like a meteor.

My armor scale is unreal good, and if they were available I’d buy a stack of armor Serpents in a heartbeat. It’s a fantastic plastic and I hope to see more and more of it.

The Scale is great, but I think the Serpent is underrated. A disc that hard core resists turn, but doesn’t really fade? Pretty unique.

They are one of the best putters of all time. I have a few chalk pit serps but I would be powerless against armor versions. 100% at their mercy.

Scale is my most thrown mold, and has been for a long time.

Two in the bag--one is fresher and one has been in for 3+ years (it is dead straight with no real LSF left on it, although it will finish with hyzer if I start it with more than few degrees hyzer it can do just about anything except a touchy trailing anny). I putt with the beat one often, mostly because it is on the ground within a few feet of the basket already.

But Wizards are still my putters.

This is what beat Scales are for.

I have a thrashed Tar Pit from the first run. I’ll have to go throw it and see if it’s lost it’s fade. My Fossil one still fades hard.

We're celebrating Worlds this week! Use promo code WORLDS at checkout to get 15% off your order! Also, I'll be talking to Dave to try and get some Armor/Amber Scales made. We've made a small batch in the past but they always came out super pop top. He's made a lot of great strides in his Diamond plastic to a point that I believe we can finally achieve a flatter Premium plastic Scale.
