They're close enough to call them the same mold, but whether it's the way different plastics settle, or a variation on the original mold, the soft X and D Ringers, are a hair lower than the Breaker. I personally think it's a variation and a whole new mold was made, because when the Breaker came out it had zippered flight plate. Only word I've heard on it from someone associated with Discraft was here:

https://youtu.be/0hhSA97miOs?t=44s

As to those Ledgestone Ringers, from Declarkus: "I wish I took a pic, b/c this isn't the first time this has been questioned. Except last time, it was something about the shoulder being different. Side by side, I couldn't see any difference in shape, height, depth or PLH.

All that said, you still might be right. The Cryztal FLX Ringer flew straighter out of the box than a 8/10 SP Breaker, and the SP, Glow and Flex Breakers I have all fly the same."

Original Ringers were definitely shallower than the Breakers I am familiar with, but it has been quite a while since I went looking for either. Perhaps something has changed in that time.

New on the Discraft website:
Jawbreaker Ringer GT
Soft X Ringer GT
Both are stability 1.7

Wondering if the JB Ringer GT could challenge my DD Suspect as an approach disc.

Any people putting Ringers, making the switch?

I'm still hoping for a good ol' fashion Groove Track on a beadless putter, and that they don't drop their og GT design in favor of the Thumtrac.

I just picked a couple up and took one on a trip yesterday. For all intents and purposes...it's a Rhyno. Great for FH/BH shots, is somewhat workable on flex lines, great for woods golf.

I pretty much agree with this^^^^

I'm a Rhyno thrower, tried the Ringer GT for a while, similar to a Rhyno, Just a bit too shallow for me. Went back to the Rhyno.

Word...I think I actually dig the little extra shallowness on it. It's going to hang around as my approach putter...might give it a shot for putting too...make things simpler.
