Ancient thread bump, but one of the 2016 Ledgestone discs is the Crazy Tough Magnet with 4 chain stamp. I wonder how it'll fly.

Second this, the glide is insane. Beat soft magnets for jump putts all day.

I just noticed the Magnet all of them from the 2000's onward have a miro bead on the odd lip part of rim.

Yep and as of 2017 August, I have loved the Magnets in Jawbraker. I warped a softer Hard Pro D Magent from 2006 hitting a tree in early July 2017 on a putt and had to get a new set of them, Labeled the one I beat in more Approach and the other Putter. I also added the ring of stamp from the newer magnet for thumb placement on both Jawbreaker. I have the old pre 2006 stiff Magnet. All of them are or were 173-174 grams.

I used Magnets a lot in the 90's. It was really the only legit option for a putter other than an Aviar. This was my primary Magnet:





I'm thinking there must have been a point in time where I wasn't loving it.

One I have is like that but big logo from 2005 I forget the month, bother got it originally so I never payed attention. It is red stamp with blue was 174-173 grams. I picked it up after buying one of the last hard Magnets in a store in 2007. It was burnt red/maroon disc with red stamp that I lost in the tournament in the same town, color was a dumb choice but I had no choice. The other from 2006 or 2007 was Macaroni orange and red stamp that I had until August 2017. Then what I have now from early August 2017.

I can think of a few options out in the 1990's that were a amazing putting putter other then the Aviar or Magent. Aero and counterpart from Lighting Rubber putter were not bad and probably the most used option, with the Aero being the more used option as it was more easily found.

The good think about Soft Magnets is they never really changed unlike the Pro D Magnet that was Stiff as allowed by PDGA and then in 2006 sometime was a little bit more flexible.
