I got mine in the mail the other day
I love how the swirly eraser plastic shaped up - it’s the perfect combination of grit/grip and stiffness for my taste!
I can’t wait to throw them!!

Got in - Wow, not only do they look great, but the feel is going to be excellent for the colder months - and I was able to do a quick field test. THEY ARE STABLE - like nice and HSS - I gave it all I had and it just went straight then sat right down. 2/2/0/1 is kinda how it flew but a TRUE 0 turn - Really great feel look and flight - super happy. This disc is awesome.

Got a little more work in - Definitely the most stable to slight OS serpent I've used other than the very early runs of Rock hard Fossil Whites, so suckers were really stable. Overall this is THE perfect upshot disc and windy putter. Definitely run these again

Hit a MONDO putt with the Eraser Serpent yesterday - (well one of a handful) I usually only bust out the serpent on Putts when its windy or there's a certain advantage to the slow low glide. It was cold and windy - I had a solid drive but was 50 feet out shooting uphill with a tree on elevated basket- Basically I was thinking layup immediately (windy) But I see my cardmates all over the place and knew I needed to get something going as I was 3-4 strokes back. I went for it straight flat loft putt the Serpent held in the wind and sank like a 3-point shot in the bucket! My cardmates shot 4,5,and 7 - so I swung right back into the mix. I ended up playing decent - we had a 45 hole touney on a tough 2 courses. It all came down to the LAST HOLE with 2 Players Tied and myself 1 stroke back. I got a birdie and tied one for the lead but my buddy hit his last put to steal it by 1 - it was a good time.

Finally pulled the trigger on a chalk pit serpent. Kind of surprised to see first runs still readily available.

Scale/serpent one two punch is now in full effect!

The more I throw this serpent the more I like it. Fits perfectly in the hand and flies straight as an arrow. This is the start of a long, beautiful relationship.

yeah I grew to really like the serpent - I just got the new Halloween runs and they are by far my favorites - really great discs - I see myself using it more and more. Great for runs at the basket for a throw in without going too far past

Yeah it just has a really perfect balance for me. The combination of low glide, low speed and super direct flight just flat out fits my style to a T. The fact that the subtle thumb groove and chalkpit plastic jive perfectly with my grip is just a bonus. I am really looking forward to trying all the plastic variations now, what a great disc.
