I honestly really like approaching with my proxy. But I FH my zone quite a bit too and don't really use proxy or Envy on anny much. I could see your point there

Or, if I like the Electron Proxy as my putter once that comes out. But the Serpent has just been great. Alas, not gyro but I was getting tired of how fast Electron plastic was changing the Pilots flight. Maybe the new Electron blend coming with the Electron Proxy will be longer lasting. Not sure about the feel though.
I have a pair of new E Anodes with that rubbery feel. Is it the same? If so, I absolutely love it! It's an incredible mix of decent firmness and tremendous grip. I'm hoping the E matrixes are that blend too.

No idea. New blend isn't out until the Proxies. The last run of Electron was the Winter Circuit. I have an Electron Entropy and that has stood up better than Electron in any of the other putter molds. Some colors were closer to soft and others closer to firm. Electron Stabilizers were super hard. It might bode well for the new Electron. We will have to wait and see.

I’ve been bagging two Envy’s for my throwing putters lately. An electron firm that is pretty much a dead straight flyer and holds anny lines very well and a neutron or neutron soft depending on the day for flights that need a little fade at the end or that will hold a hyzer without flipping up.

Ordered another Envy because finding white discs in the snow isn’t fun and since it doesn’t make sense to pay shipping for just one disc I added a Proxy to my order. Going to try it and see if it does similar things as my electron Envy and might try the Proxy/Envy combo for a bit just to see how I like it.

Ah man I should’ve waited for an electron! I bought the soft neutron proxy earlier this week. I still love it, but like my electron envy more feel wise.

I'm in the same boat. Should have several coming any day now.
this is a really exciting disc so it will get tested real quickly. I'll report back here after 1 round and 1 field practice. Maybe video too... depending on how busy I am.

Did MVP use the exact same mold for the Electron Proxy compared to all other plastics? I remember reading somewhere that the Electron Envy used a different mold than standard Envies (and I always felt the Electron Envy felt a little different, too).

Could anyone compare the Neutron Proxy & Big Z Roach as throwers?

Proxy is a little faster, not as floaty. Pretty similar line.
