Clozer

Just got one and its VERY BB Aviar esque. That's all I've got for now.

Actually, it's got a lower nose and slightly lower profile and a BB. Putts really nice. Fits my had and putting style better than a clutch. Haven't thrown it yet though.

I wish is was in a different color plastic. The white feels cheat and easily damagable. (like my new word?) I've had black, red, and green clutches and they all felt higher quality.

I thought it looked very similar to a KC aviar when I saw the profile. Interesting that it's lower profile, since they did the same thing with the clutch compared to the magnet (from what I can tell, haven't held a magnet in years) Big Beaded putters aren't very comfortable in my hand, so I probably won't bother to try it, but if it is as good as the clutch it will be worth a look for people who do like the big bead.

Legacy is looking pretty ambitious so far, can't wait to see the ghost when it comes out.

Its less lower profile from the BB than the Clutch is from the magnet.

Eek. Its looking rough after about an hour of putting and a couple approaches. Flies a helluva like the Clutch with a bit more fade.

Similar, but slows down faster. I haven't drove with them yet, just 100-120ft approaches

Loved the clutches I've had, this white though, just feels so damn cheap.

I've been tossing an icon Clozer lately. It's weird. Less hss than the protégé. Ok glide, not great. I was wanting an overstable putter, but that's not what I got.

Does the Icon plastic used for the putters feel like all the other Icon plastic?
Is it as flat as a Protege Clozer?
I've never gotten into premium plastic putters but I was kind of hoping these would be more hss than the protege/excel platics.

Note that the earliest white protege plastic was a different blend, they don't make it any longer, but it was the best they ever made (tacky even in a downpouring rain). I've been collecting Clutches in that plastic.

I spent about an hour in the backyard throwing my Icon and Excel Clozers along with an Excel Clutch. First off I've been using the Excel clutch for awhile now and in my opinion the clutch is 2/3/-.5/1.
My Excel Clozer is close to the numbers as shown on the disc as 2/3/0/2, maybe the fade should be a 1.5. I've only got 200' between my baskets and at that distance the Excel Clutch is dead straight with a small fade at the end.
The Icon clozer probably is a 2/3/0/2 as marked on the disc, the one I have is blue and feels like a slightly stiffer star plastic. On a 200' shot thrown flat the fade was kicking in at about 180' it does not pull out of an anhyzer and holds hyzer angles very well.
FWIW it's 30 degrees here today and we have snow on the ground, I'll take these to a local pitch and putt in the next few days and give them a better workout. After they got cold all of these discs had very little grip.

How stiff is the protege plastic for these Legacy putters? Perhaps in comparison to current Pro-D Challenger or current KC Pro plastic if possible.

And has anyone tried these in light to moderate headwinds?
