I've had two practice sessions with my Luna & I don't feel comfortable committing to it right now. Just keeps slipping out of my hand. Sticking with the JB Roach through the year.

I do hope that Discraft makes a fortune selling them. Glad to see them getting this attention from the McBeth move.

I think the Luna is more slick than McPro/Tour Series. I've been practicing with the Luna, Tour Aviar & Roach the last few days & Luna keeps slipping on me.

I bet this is why the disc is a prototype, Paul might be eventually using discs that are less slick more like his old McPro/the new Tour Series plastic when Discraft makes the main model.

This is interesting to hear, because my McBeth Prototype putter, which I'm guessing is the Luna(?) has that 'gritty' feel and is anything but slippery. Someone talked about tiny raised dots on theirs, and I think mine has that. Were there two runs of the putter mold?

Sounds like it from the way you talk about your disc as if there was two runs and with 10,000 discs made that might be the case.

DiscGolfNerd did a review of the Luna & described it having a 'crayon' feel to it. That's my feeling too. There are some raised bumps but overall just has an odd slick crayon texture. The shape of the mold & stability are on point but I'm still prefering the Roach.
