I agree with this. Seems to me, the harder I throw them, the closer they get in flight.

Powered down shots is where the Envy's fade really shows itself over the Proxy's. On a full power drive,...

^Maybe so...? Yeah, neither of them flies any different. And actually, both "gouges" were easily "repaired" with a few seconds and a bic lighter.

Played 5 tourney rounds this weekend with the Phase in the bag and the Motion out. I love the Motion, but even @ max wt, my older one broke into a "just OS" driver relatively quickly.

Exactly. Which is fine, and fun, for casual rounds, but playing in a few tourneys this summer has made me realize that in that scenario, it can be a liability, the revolving door bag.

Anybody else's bag shifted around much with all the driver releases? So many of these drivers I like, but there's enough overlap, it was causing crowding and over-decision-making. So I'm trying and...

I've found the Proxy to handle light breezes like ^^^ just fine. Takes more than 5mph to make it flip, it's really not that touchy.

Yeah, I don't think too many throwers are going to find the Phase "workable" OS. I find it to be about bone-in rib eye on the beef spectrum.



Totally. It might be a Motion-killer for me. Once...

Which is it? Do all putters hit/stick because of "rim design?" Or is it a matter of having pro-caliber skills like yours?

Not really sure what this even means. Are you trying to say that soft Envies and regular Envies act the same on landing? That's simply false.

I've got one of the bigger MVP ones. It's pretty sweet, not so heavy that it bothers me in my pocket, but I think I could kill someone with it with a good thumber to the head.

174 N: No turn, pretty beefy fade
164 F: No turn, later, softer fade than ^. More workable, but it still...
