Is anyone else finding their lighter Soft Envy's to already be an easier turning Envy? I have a 164 regular Neutron and its flight is pretty similar to my 174 Proton, but my 163 Soft has noticeably...

I'm a slow adopter of Clash - and the Volt for that matter. Once I started loving on the P Volt, I found I used my Crave less. Because of one hole on my local course that suited a fighting S-shot,...

I would suggest apparent overstability is relative to the thrower. I use(d) it as a predictably HSS, straight line driver. I have two copies, one is a lighter sparkle version that turns a bit...

Agree. Case in point, there is a hole at my local course (15 @ Thorncliffe for any Calgarians) where the tee is recessed at the downside of a low hill. OB all along the right and a patch of OB...

BAM. Truth. C-ya!




I'm not sure if it's the gyro, flat tops, shared cores or a combination, but my most US molds in all slots are not MVP/Axiom. I bag a Nova as my easy turn putter, a...

I wondered that too, but the Tursas and Warship are my longest mids for their respective stability. I would suspect the Theory might not have the same long range, but it will certainly challenge for...

I would concur. Envy is straight with power and the magic is the HSS can absorb a great deal of power. Powered down, it will fade. I'm not sure what I'd use a powered down Envy for, maybe......

Technically the Alias is the stable one, but with good snap, it's great for controlled right turns. I bag mine for dependable (not burn-y) straight/right lines.

Tangent is great for stability at...

I've thrown MVP for a couple years through winter here in Calgary with no issues. Aside from everything being hard and slick, including my softs.

And the Theory -

Had heard about this, but was waiting for the pics. 'Similar, comfortable feel as the Envy' is good, though I'll admit from the description I was thinking overmold lid. Looking forward to a profile.

I tend to bag by class. I have 5 putters, 6 mids and 4 or 5 each of FW and DDs and they vary by course. They way I throw, my mids sometimes overlap my slower FWs generally, so I tend to use slow...

Pro Destroyers have a tick less HSS and get good glide vs Champ/Star. That said I recently swapped my Pro Destroyers for a 400G D3. Very similar performance, but presumably longer lasting plastic.

As an example, I really appreciate after...
