I've been using the Link for throwing. Something about it doesn't feel quite right for putting. Maybe because of how shallow it is? Maybe it's because it's grippier than D and P line?

Yeah man. Switched from Wizards myself and the Link is just a more comfortable in the hand, longer in the air Wizard IMO. Just need to find a (likely premium plastic) variant that has also fade when the straight throw doesn quite cut it.

IDK if I just have smaller hands or what it is but from my first throw with the Link I could tell that the release is much cleaner than any other putter I have thrown. I have always been drawn to more grippy plastic so the exo is in the sweet spot for me. I honestly didn't expect to like the Link all that much but it is really hard to argue with results. Maybe just try to cycle it into a practice stack to try against others. I have been throwing it off the tee a little the last 2 rounds as well and it really surprised me there too. I really look forward to a premium Link for a thrower.

Well, that was entertaining.

Saw the Echo DD3s were available and since Im a sucker for trying just about anything new thought I might order a couple.

Wanted to get some lighter weights and every time Id stick one or two in my cart and try to check out it would tell me one of the discs wasnt available.

After several attempts I finally managed to get a 171 and 172 successfully added and paid for.

Ill be curious to see if they are noticeably less stable than my max weight Cloudbreakers.

Even though Simon says I have no business throwing drivers.

They are significantly less stable fresh out of the box. Mine turns more than the proto cloudbreaker I have been throwing since they first dropped.

The Lux Link is pure money. I joined Discmember just to get that disc and I snagged a few from the other people who don't throw DM. I can't wait until the public can get there hands on that disc. It's my favorite throwing putter I've found.
