Am I alone in feeling like the Theory is the Envy's partner, rather than part of the mid class? Understable tweenerish?

Also, this conversation is very pleasant.

I'd agree on this. It seems where the Envy is a long putter, the Theory is a short mid, so they work well together. All depends on your power level, I suppose, but they do make a pretty solid approach team.

I'd also say that's something else that makes the Theory unique. Where many tweeners in this speed range are utility overstable (Harp, Suspect, Zone), the Theory stands out.

I thought it felt more like a putter from the get go.

I should have said, if the Proxy or Ptorotypes beat into a disc that flies like the theory.

Agreed! When I think "understable midrange," I expect glide! I also expect to be able to get them out almost as far as my fairway drivers.

When I throw the Theory next to my Envy, they go about the same distance but completely different lines.

I'm much more comfortable thinking of the Theory as a fast putter... which makes me even more excited for the Proxy.

I'm stuffed, but patiently waiting on a Soft Theory, Soft Proton Envy, Soft Proxy, a midrange in soft, heck even a soft driver would be nice to try.

Concur. I too gained a sense of a mid behaving like a fast/long putter. I originally felt this way about the Tangent on first release, but Theory blurs the line a little more. Wants to be treated a little more like a lady than any other MVP and she shines on lower powered control. I've been meaning to try Theory out on long putts, out of curiosity. I'd certainly entertain the notion of base plastic or a soft/light theory.
