For those of you that got the Graboide, how do you feel about the disc? Do you like the huge bead?
I know the weight is to low on the prototype run... and I sent out a few with some flashing problems on the bottom. That'll be cleaned up on the next run as well. For now you can take a X-ACTO knife and do a small cut, then pill it away. Sorry about that.
What I really want to know is, how does it fly for you, putter shots and mid-range shots? How does it feel in the hand? I was told the soft rubber lip should hold up pretty well, give me feedback down the road on how well the lip is holding up! And anything else you think could help.
Next run I am adding just a little more of the grippy plastic to the Flight plate, it well still be hard as I want it to remain that way, but should have a little better grip. And weight well be up where it should be. Glad you like them so far... let me know how they work for you with more time! I'll send them into the PDGA once I do the heavier set as they approve by weight as well... dont want to pay and only have max weight at 165g :)
keep in toutch
Feedback. I took my Graboide and Relic out to Saturday leagues and arrived early to warm-up with them. The Graboide made my bag, the Relic did not. As a putter (finger on rim) or even an upshot (finger under rim), the Graboide feels great in my hand. The Relic feels nice too, but just not as a putter for me. It could be an upshot in my bag, but the problem is the weight. At 157 grams, my Relic flips with very little effort.
Even though my Graboide is only 155 grams, I am quite impressed. It feels nice and as Mr Ed noted, it does grab chains. I was a little nervous about the light weight since it wouldn't impact the chains quite as hard, but I decided to keep it in my bag for the league round. I used it twice and made the putt both times, both around 30 feet. I can't wait to get a heavier version. It just may replace my primary putter!
