Threw it tonight. Way better than the Star version from last year, much more like the Pro Line Gremlin, but still not exactly the same.
The CFR versions feel thinner than the Pro Lines, if that makes sense. A slightly higher dome, I think it will beat into a flat top.
I always liked the Gremlin because it could handle extra torque and would hold on any line....these seem to be the same, but mine is a little beefy right now.
I did lay down a sweet forhand roller with it though, and that shot alone brought back fond memories of the original P. L. G.
