I can definitely sympathize with everything you say about envies. I do have a couple fairly beat proton envies that are mellow enough for smooth putting. But they're only really grippy enough in perfect weather conditions.

I'm not using envies at the moment, but if I do try them again I'd likely try cycling electron envies. MVP seems to have finally saturated the market so you can buy as many of those as you like now. And hopefully the overmold would slow down the seasoning process enough to make them cost effective.

I enjoyed the bangers, especially in the jawbreaker plastic, but they seasoned pretty darn fast (I was using them for driving and putting). After a couple months of using a mix of four jawbreaker bangers, almost all of them had lost all of their fade. (I likely slam trees off the tee more than the average person...). With almost no fade they required more touch than I posses (especially for upshots).

I'm trying a mix of big-bead aviars at the moment (KC, JK, Yeti). I've never loved the deeper putters, but I have big enough hands that I'm forcing myself to try it. I do appreciate the plastic consistency (and the easy availability of all of KC/JK/Yeti), and what thus far seems to be the slow seasoning process. I got lucky and picked up a beat JK and a beat KC as well so I can understand what a really seasoned one feels and flies like.

First off nice bag. Looks pretty solid.

As far as envy's... Yeah man premium plastic takes forever to season in to straight I've got a stack of 167ish plasma pfn's and I've got maybe 3/8 that are straight at low speed. The proton is a little slick in the winter, plasma is slightly better, I enjoy the fade it generally helps me not over shoot the basket.

I picked up a 174 cosmic electron soft in the summer off an auction, I have decided to finally start an electron cycle. It putts pretty similar to its light plasma buddies, a little straighter. However it approaches way straighter with some great turns or laser straight precision. It started out more in the ohm/ anode kinda stability rather than envy. Banged two aces in a round with it and it's firmly itb. Beware of the extra glide, it's a rocket powered laser by comparison.

Love the RR's!! And the Comets!! I used to throw forces and the occasional pred... solid bag. Sad to see the relay didn't make the cut

I tried to love the envy, it is still the best disc for 150-200ft standstill approaches, but outside of that range, I couldn’t get dialed. The relay is great, but I have a few old fd’s that are my absolute babies. So it just didn’t have a spot, but I have it to a buddy and he is loving it.

The rr gets lots of work, so do the comets. What did you find that you like better than the force/pred?

Some proper formwork and getting old! Haha. I lost a lot of juice, just dumped my stock of FR esp forces, I kept my baby blue one that used to be wicked straight.

I use a 165 tesla/ wave in that slot these days. I really liked the esp forces especially when they broke in they were amazing.
