How do we all feel about Atoms? I was groping an electron one today and it felt nice in my hand. Been thinking about experimenting with putters. I currently putt (and throw) Anodes, but am thinking about something lower profile. I'm assuming the flight is approximately the same? Can anybody compare? If I recall, these things get a lot of love on here.

I putted with them for about a year and liked them well enough. I ultimately decided I didn't like electron plastic much.

They go far as hell for a putter, and can putt well if you use a spin or hybrid putt. Pure push putters would possibly not like the fade.

I like them a lot but have beef using a less stable putting putter recently.

Electron is heck of a lot better than DX or D plastic.

The Cosmic Electrons seems to fly a bit more stable than regular Electron.

The new Firm Cosmic Electon Atom was getting double duty of a thrower and a putter for me today. I was off with my Tui for some reason

What would you guys pair it with for a slightly more stable thrower? I currently go with an firm electron Anode for putting and throw a soft proton Anode. I pair that with an Ion and a particle. I'd likely keep the particle as a most os putter, but would like to slot something in the middle with a hand feel that's in the ballpark of similar

Was also thinking about trying a proxy envy combo.

Basically thinking about getting away from the deeper putters and seeing how that goes. I love the feel of my particle,and I really liked how that Atom felt in my hand.

Well I never got big into the Atom, sample size of 2.5, I have two HOC neutrons, only one I've thrown and a soft electron I gave away. If you had a neutron and a soft electron one they are pretty different. The soft electron in my limited experience was getting to Proxy stability out of the box and the Neutron was like a straighter Envy, less fade and workable tight S shots that were essentially straight.

I auditioned the Atom, Envy, Proxy and Anode for a month to see which putter to commit to for life. Haha. It was close with the Neutron Atom it could have kicked the plasma Envy.

I balled out so hard yesterday with MVP, AXIOM , Streamline that my buddy who has resisted for YEARS just bought a neutron Atom - because I always say "That ATOM brooo"

Got a hole in 1 with the Neutron Trace - underrated disc. 11/5/-1/2 such a great flight - also parked another hole with it. 2 throws led to -3 on the card
Also got MEGA D with the Delirium and parked a super hard hole. It was a solid day of Golf up north here.


cant wait for more streamline discs

Nicely done! Unfortunately, I hate playing in the snow, so my DG adventures will wait till the snow goes away. In Wisconsin, who knows when that'll be lol
