Not if it doesn't come in zero hard/retro. I keep hoping that something will come somewhat close to a Roc or Ghost in terms of flight and feel - I'd gladly throw a trilogy version of one. I tried the zero hard mace and it was not that close to a roc in flight imo. maybe the 3 I had were freak overstable but I could throw them in a headwind with no turn and significant fade.

I would really like to see a BT Bard in the USA to try out, but I don't see that happening anytime soon at all. No one seems to have an answer about when it will have a production release over here and has only had limited runs in EU if I'm not mistaken.

What about the Mace? It is very Rocish tick faster. Heck we can even get it in Zero Hard hint hint Westside! Great glide decent fade. Extremely stable when thown hard. The Zero hard are even flat tops. If u where into KC flat tops like me I highly recommend a hard Mace. Honestly I love rocs but never felt comfortable with a Roc3. Maces are what I wanted the R3 to be.

Haven't thrown a Bard but just starting throwing/bagging Opto Mace. Flies just like a Wasp but with less fade at the end. Was hoping for Wasp fade, but the Mace is a nice flying midrange.

Finally tried a Bard out and it's not quite as overstable as I thought it would be. I was afraid it would be Drone beefy but it's actually really workable. Like a great Champ Roc.

Completely accurate. I have a 177 VIP for beefy champ Roc shots a 175 TP that is straight to fade and an Origio I’m beating into a turnover.

It’s a very good mold. I’ve got one backup for each slot too should the woods and water claim one.

I think a lot of Roc guys would really dig it if they tried one.

I'm just hoping that we see some bt hard and medium Bards eventually. I was expecting the acquisition to speed this up.

Origio Burst Bards are hitting retail shelves next Friday, FWIW.

The acquisition opened up the US market for the full line of Westside products (when some had been restricted to Finland or Europe only) but I don't think production overall has been increased over what it had been. It's not like the manufacturing facilities changed with the buyout. The BTs probably aren't too far away, but they don't appear to be a priority.

I got a beat up TP Bard out of the used bin yesterday and threw it a ton today. Super good midrange, very straight. It really tried to do everything I wanted it to do. Straight tunnels, baby flexes, sweeping hyzers with some intentional roll under, etc. If you're a Roc guy (especially like KC Pro Roc flight/stability) and you want to dabble in some Swedish plastic it's worth trying out. I can definitely see why Bard guys want some BT Bards for cycling.

I agree that it is the best Premium Roc style mid out there, and the beat angle makes it better to FH.

My TP Bard is not as beat in, so it still has some fade. I'd say it's like a RocX3 now, and will beat in to a straighter-throwing disc. The Bard is a good mold, and I second the suggestion to try it out.

Side note: cyclers can try the Origios if BT is not available. Might even be better than BT...
