How does the Gravity Ghost break in compared to the Protoge?

It has been a while

Protege Clozer x2 - the most confident I have ever been with a putter. I put in a ton of practice to learn how it flies and it paid off.
Omega SS big bead 2.2 - turnover/touch approaches
Envy Proton - Drives off the box

Ghost Gravity - turnover mid
Ghost Pinnacle
Alias Neutron

Patriot Icon x3 - different weights/stabilities
Rival Icon - 166
QOLF - longer than Rival
Firebird Star x2 - different stabilities

Scorpius Sirius x2 - one beefy, one straight
Scorpius Quantum - 167g, easy to work
Omega - QMS - MD2 - QJLS - OLF/S - DD - Scorpius

I think I saw someone on FB say the 168g Pinn Ghosts were some of the best out there (maybe it was you, not sure), have you thrown them? And if so, how do they compare to the other runs? I throw a first run Pink (173g) and a Orange Excel (177g).
I would like your X-Wasps, please.

Yeah that is the ghost I use. It reminds me of a fresh excel Ghost that never breaks in. Nice even dome/shoulder.

Probably going to change up my bag a bit more here soon. Going to try out a Servo/QOLF combo in place of the Rivals. Also want to pair a Tangent with the Alias

Back to what I know...the original Trilogy...

Omega AP 1.8 x2 - putters
Omega SS big bead - touch approach
Omega AP 1.12 - driving

QMS x2 - 1 CE, 1 opaque orange
CMD2
CMD3 Glow

QJLS x2
QOLF x3 - 2 1.2 orange, 1 1.3 sparkle
Firebird Star x2

GStar Krait - really like this disc in this plastic. I find the 175g ones have considerably more LSS.
S-Scorpius x2
Q-Scorpius

Went 9 months or so trying out some other companies. Going back to the bread and butter. Pretty happy with results and confidence it has brought back. I was playing 990+ golf with this set up and when I tried out the new stuff I saw a 20-30 point drop. My game was built on the LF/JLS so its nice to go back to it

I have a stack of 10 blank ones :o

Still throwing the first one I ever picked up. It was used then and hasn't changed much in over 3 years

I like the usage of less molds. I'm currently doing that myself as well. Trying to cover many areas but use what I'm more familiar with in different stages of wear and weights.

I really like the bag zj. :thumbup:

Trying out some hyzer bomb stuff to flesh out the bag. Switched up the putters as usual. Been going between the D-P2 and the McPro Big Beads as my main putters. Picked up a few Tanks and newer runs of Omega SS Big Bead.

McPro Aviar Big Bead x2 - putting only
Omega SS
Omega SS Big Bead
Tank

QMS x2
MD2
MD3
Mortar Recon - this disc is surprising awesome. More stable than the old beadless gators

QJLS x2
S-FD - this is one of the old DGR proto testers. Forgot I had it
Firebird Star x2 - 1 stable, 1 beat to shit
QOLF x2 - opaque 1.2 and pearly/domey 1.2

S-Scorpius x2
Q-Scorpius - flippy
GStar Krait
Omega - QMS - MD2 - QJLS - OLF/S - DD - Scorpius

I lost my beadless gator and will be picking up an HB Mortar shortly. Is it the same mold as the beadless gator or completely different? I have heard they are flatter but I am sure that will change from run to run.

The Mortar already seems to have a few different variations. I have seen some with microbead bottoms(like old "beadless" gators), and some that have the no-bead flat bottom wing(recon is like this). I think all the newer runs of frontline and recon I have seen are being made with the no-bead wing.

The frontline-x(gummy star) are the flat ones I think, Frontline(star) has more dome, and all the Recons are fairly domey. I actually like the domey Recon the more I have thrown it. I was always a fan of the flat beadless gators, and didn't really want to mess with the domey Recon until I threw it. The Recon is definitely pure beef.

Yeah legacy stuff is just too damn good

Clozer Protege x2 - putting
Clozer Gravity - turnover drives
Clozer Icon - straight drives
Clutch Icon - stable drives

Ghost Excel - beat up for hyzer flips
Gauge Icon
Ghost Pinnacle - stock, straight
Ghost Pinnacle - first run blue, got some beef

Patriot Icon - flips and rollers
Patriot Legend - main fairway driver
Rival Pinnacle - 1st run, 169g, straight
Rival Legend - purple, stable
QOLF 1.2 - opaque orange, flippy
QOLF 1.2 - pearly 1.2 run w/ wraith top. stable and longer than Rival
Firebird Star - forehand mainly

Scorpius Sirius x2 - 1 beefy, 1 stable
Scorpius Quantum - flippy distance
Krait G-Star - control, best used on flat lines that track right and then need fade.

I'll be adding a Legend Gauge, but I am not sure what it will kick out. I also have 2-3 other Patriots(Pinnacle and Icon) I rotate into the bag depending on the course when I need a variety of stability
