I just don't have the space to test its glide or overstability, as from that distance all putts are generally going straight to the basket. Looking forward to putting it through the paces but it is going to take a very good performance to knock the Myth out of the bag. Myth's are very much point and shoot for me and can handle some torque. I am hoping for the same from the Scarab but with an extra bit of distance.
Thanks for the response, and I'm looking forward to hearing more after you work the Scarab out.

I always thought the Myth/Whale was a V-Aviar already, so I wonder if it's another top on the Scarab?

Could be, I am def not an expert on mold pieces. The top on the Scarab is more curved on the top shoulder and nose than I find the the Myth to be. I have been comparing it with the Aviars that I have and it looks close but it could be something else entirely.

Played a couple rounds with the Scarab in the Myth's bag spot this weekend and I would say that this disc lives up to the description of being a Myth with more glide. Nice and floaty on the touch upsots that need to sit. Not a ton of fade but stable enough to throw the straight lines I can put the Myth on without turning on me. Point and shoot from the get go. It can hold anhyzer and hyzer lines much like the Myth. I only had one or two throws where the nose got up on me and the glide took over making the shot higher than intended and only over threw a few by a few feet because of that added glide. I found that the extra glide was easy to adjust to after a couple of throws. The difference in the top mold pieces had no effect on the felling in my hand or how I would throw the shots needed. I could bag the Scarab no problem if my Myth goes missing and not miss a beat.

Got a Scarab in the mail today, and took it to the course for a workout.

1. The sidewall is a bit taller on the Scarab than the Myth. Whereas the Myth is a V-AvairP&A, the Scarab may be a V-ClassicAviar or a V-Avair3 top, but I'm not sure, even after a comparison to a Classic Aviar and an Aviar3. The Scarab top feels a bit flatter than the Myth; indeed, my Scarab was a bit puddle-topped. However, the Scarab does not really feel any more shallow than the Myth, and it's not more shallow. But it felt fine in regard to my putting grip.

2. My Scarab is in X-blend. When I opened the box, I thought it was I-blend, then thought it felt a lot like P-blend/Pro plastic more than X-blend/XT. Felt pretty good, but not great for what I like for putting; YMMV on that.

3. "They" say that the Scarab was meant to fly like a Whale but with a bit more glide. So I thought the Scarab might be to the Myth/Whale what the Warden or Marshal is to the Wizard... glidier. I'm not sure happened vis-a-vis the Scarab/Myth.

On putts, I didn't feel like there was much more glide to the Scarab. But on longer (outside-the-circle) putts and throws, the Scarab did show some really good glide. The Scarab has a slightly-understable flight when putting; it's not as dead-straight as some other putters. On throws it's pretty straight, though, neither turning nor fading hardly at all during its flight. It generally held the lines I threw it on. I could see bagging the Scarab as an approach disc.

4. All-in-all, the Scarab is a pretty good disc, and people who like putting with Trilogy high-glide discs might like the Scarab.
