Can anyone verify if they changed the mold on the new sms? I am wanting to know if it has the super stingray bottom wing or the old stingray bottom.

The Quasar should fade less weight for weight which instantly drops power requirement and adds average glide across the whole flight=should help in D versus the Scorpius.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

I know that there is a Buy/Sell/Trade for buying, selling, and trading, but there so many new posts every day that my small request is bound to be lost.

I really, really, really need an old type Q plastic, slightly gummier QMEGA. Better two. And they should be yellow. I will pay a very good $$.

I bought the latest run, but the plastic is just awful IMHO.

I know where a clear one is. Not quite qms gummy but not bad either. Are you handy with dye?

JR, you have more power than me but I threw a seasoned 138 B-Boss for my "S" distance driver. For me, it would go about 350'. I have a 145 ZG Quasar that I consistantly put out to 375 - 400' and it's not quite beat in enough. I need to give it just a touch of anny. Maybe I got a freak but it just bombs. For your power you might try 150 - 155.

The MS uses the stingray bottom/wing. The old stingray/ms bottom did not have a bead and was concave, like what you find on the QMS/SMS. However when they changed the stingray wing they added a micro bead and made the wing flatter. The last run of Aurora MS had this micro bead from the new stingray. So he was curious if the new SMS had the new bottom with the micro bead.

OK, here goes. The 1.2 SMS does have a concave wing. There is no micro-bead but it does have some wicked flashing. It's overstable when comparing it to any other MS, IMHO.

Hope that helps.

BB Omega SS.

This is overstable compared to the Omega SS and even the CE Omega's I have. The BB was obviously brand new and my CE Omega is probably a 9/10. But I'm very happy with this overstable putter for upshots. It went the same D as the CE but was a bit shorter than the SS. I prefer the grippier SS plastic. It's just easier for me to throw.

My Boss 138 went 417' on an s-curve both low and high lines with skips yesterday in rear wind. In calm weather i still get it over 400 with low line drives with skips. Don't know how far exactly but it fades too early and hard for me so i do have an eye out for light Scorpius and a heavier Quasar and Blizz DD2.

Steady what weight BB Omega?

I'm throwing a 172 and it isn't what I consider overstable.

I have a 175g but I want to stash it for now

175 and it's red, not that that should matter... It is more overstable than any other Omega. (SS, CE, Q, S)

This, I believe, is what Steve is describing. The two QMEGAs started as clear. Now they both have are a shade of "blood red". The one you see here is not as dark as it looks. And the second one is (now) lighter than that. The point is this. I was using Rose Pink dye. On the Sirius and M plastic, the dye works to a light/medium pink. On the Q plastic, it gets a little darker.

I can send you instructions on how I dye whole discs. But I am not sure how a yellow dye would look on a Q disc.
