There are many shots that a putter cannot replicate a mids flight. Here are but a few:

1. Being pinched off and forced to throw standstill from akward footing. Even if one has a good forehand, sometimes the line requires a backhand. Being in awkward footing will sap the amount of power one is able to generate. A mid can get more distance without sacrificing accuracy. Comets and Rocs both are excellent for this shot.

2. Downhill low ceiling bending shots. A putter won't have the glide to make both the bend and the distance whilst drivers will stall out. The lower stall speed of the mids allow for the shot to be shaped more.

There are plenty more, including ones already mentioned, but those highlight why nagging mids make playing heavy woods courses easier.

The issue I, and most others that have tried to use MVP mids in my area, is that they have high stall speeds. The Matrix and Alais being the exceptions. The Matrix I have not found in firm plastic. The Alais is closer to being a putter anyway; if the Enthropy is a putter, so is the Alais.
