Figured you would. Good disc in any plastic.

Did any softs make it out to testers? I was curious if they threw as per regular N's. Also, since I received 1 extra soft N Tesla in an order (softer than my Soft Envy's), I hoped future soft releases might be found in a range of softness.

Got my tester Soft Proxy in today. Haven't had a chance to throw it yet, but it feels a little different than the Soft Envy I had. This one feels more like flexible plastic with a sheen, whereas the Envy felt a bit more rubbery, if that makes sense. Looking forward to tossing it alongside my N and Watermelon Proxies and reporting back.

Hmmm. Interesting. Wonder if they are still trying to figure out the plastic blend?

I don't think sheen sounds to desirable?

Got my tester Soft Proxy in as well. It has a little bit of a pop top. It's very slight, but compared to the Envy, Atom, Ion, and Anode, it's noticeable. All of those are flat, even concave. This is not. I don't have my regular N Proxy anymore, so I have nothing to compare it to. Not sure if it's common for the mold.

Here's a pic.


You can see how the center is popped up a bit and the sides slope down. Not used to seeing that on an MVP disc. Maybe all Proxies are like that, but it doesn't ring a bell.

I won't get a chance to throw it until Wednesday, but I wanted to comment that the plastic is not quite as soft and pliable as the Soft Envy I have for a tester. Still nice plastic though. Flexy and grippy at room temps, and ran it under some cold water and it still has nice bend and grip. Almost a little tacky when I dried it. Good stuff.
