Electron Envy - C1 putting
Beat Electron Envy - C2 putting and US approaches
Neutron Soft Envy - driving putter and stable approaches
That's good to know. I might look into buying one of each kind of envy and see what works best for me.

Thanks for all the helpful comments guys. I feel like that answers my questions.

But generally the Envy is a bit low profile and stable for a putter. So I can see it working fine if you are a spin putter and line drive the basket with the disc.

So I can see the Envy working fine for people with a specific putting style that is very spin dominant and they trust the disc to hold the line, but for lots of people it's kind of the opposite end of characteristics they want for a putting putter. But that makes it so good for throwing.
Honestly at circle putting distances, the Envy really isn't all that stable for a push putt. I don't notice a difference in stability when putting it versus and Aviar, Ion, or even the Spin when pure push putting. I do think the lower profile definitely changes how you push put though. It's not as chunky in the hand to get that solid push with your palm. I personally don't like thick putters, even though I have big hands, so I put the Envy. I don't mind driving with a deeper rim, so for my driving and Ion is more comfortable than putting it.

To the OP. Electron Envies make great putters, but nothing stops rollaway other than making the putt.

I think the Envy is a lot more stable inside the circle than for example the Aviar and even the P2. There's a very marked difference, the Envy doesnt float like a speed 2 putter and it fades out earlier as well. I'm using a low spin spush, perhaps it has less fade if you have a spin style of putting

Yeah I get that...I can putt with pretty much anything in the circle. I mean I'll putt my Firebird that's sitting on the ground after I miss my putter and it works. I normally putt Anodes but I also throw Ions, so when I warm up before rounds I putt with both and there is zero difference within any reasonable range, but when thrown they are noticeably different. At a certain point though the stability does matter but I agree inside the circle it really doesn't. The lower profile factor for hand feel in push putt does affect me though from all ranges, but that's a personal thing and what I'm used to. I prefer the deeper putters and the glide/loft, then I trust that loft with less fade as I get out farther.
