No worries, a lot of people didnt know about the initial 50 that released after her announcement, no one expected this that quickly including me.

Me.
I spin putt with 167g MVP Electron Spins.

They're very straight out to almost 50 feet and then barely fade. I found that heavier putters would fade out earlier and just not go as far with the same effort.

Yes, I play in lots of wind on big open courses here in Houston. I don't have a problem with wind.

I've got big hands and I'm currently researching the first putter that I hope I'll always putt with. Should I be avoiding shallow putters since they're more suited to smaller hands, or are there other potential advantages?

This all depends on how shallow you are talking, a Dart or Wedge disc in height might be too shallow for you but a slightly deeper mold like a Colt or Stud might work for putting. The advantages are this, one with big hands can then toss the disc a bit more with power and yet not need to putt as hard as with a deeper type putter.

Hey Titan037 thx for filling us in. The mechanics of the disc, pre-flight are looking/sounding all there so far, but man you got a nice color swirl combo there.

As to why buy a $20 proto? Am asking myself the same. I got a stack of Yeti Pro Aviars that Im loving and hitting more and longer putts than I ever have before, and theyre inexpensive to replace if the time comes. And my 04 Challenger is a nice second. So I dont need another putter.

But yeah the marketing hype ended up irresistibly fun, so Im going to throw 1 of the 2 of the unsigned I ordered just to see if all the buzz has some real zzs for me. I got two to have my choice of color combo swirl. I dont know what Ill do with the other one. Do I sell it at cost to a club member who wants to throw it? Or keep to see what the market does?

Titan037s again:

So for those of you have got your hands on one already, how does the plastic feel? Is it basically just normal jawbreaker?

Stiffer blend of jawbreaker but not as stiff as even the softer runs of Lunas that recently came out. The plastic itself is still experimental as well so it will be up to Paige to determine if this is the blend that her putters will be made in.
