Lightbulb Driving Putters Kicking Out Mids

Lately I have been using Driving Putters instead of Mids on teepads and approaches alike. I used

3 Wizards/2 Fuses/3 Rocs/1 Roc3.

Then I grabbed an Opto Pure and Axiom Envy...

Now I bag:
3 Wizards
2 Opto Pures
2 Soft Neutron Envy's
2 Proton Envy's
1 X Comet
1 Neutron Theory
1 Champ Roc3

Anyone else throwing Putters more than Mids?

Envy's are really quick to be labeled putters. The 1.1 rim plus 21.0 size = 18.8 inside diameter. A Roc's inside diameter is 19.3 little sharper nose though.

Really the Envy is about a speed 4 mid, I throw Envy's further then my Suspects which are legit speed 4 also.

3,2,1, and the MVP fanboys will jump on me for saying the Envy is a mid.

I voted 6. Although I rarely have that many in the bag at the same time, I have at least six that I will use on a regular basis depending on the course. Mids are key on the cramped, wooded courses in New England. Although I can throw putters almost as far in a field, they need a lot more space to get that distance. With mids, I can hit a tight line under a low ceiling much more easily.

That's a lot of throwing putters...do any of the Envy's fly different? Nine putters is a lot of space in the bag

I used to carry 3 mids, now I'm down to one (but i did just order another one to try).

I rarely use the mids these days. There is about a 50 foot window between my putters and my slowest fairway drivers where I pull out the mid ranges. I use a recycled Pure, or a Sinus for most of it.

I carry four mids: 3 Rocs and a Comet
I carry five or six putters: 2 Wizards, 1 Sole, 1 Pig, and lately a Birdie and a Polecat. Sometimes a floppy R-Pro Dart. And sometimes an Envy. I like throwing putters. But I still need my Rocs.

4 mids for me. Two M4's and two Roc3's

Right now im using the pa4 and p2 for driving putters and they definitely aren't kicking out my mids.

I have 7 mids but only two molds in my bag: Z Drone, Champ Roc3, GStar Roc3, Pro Roc3, and two flat-top Rancho Rocs. I only really throw two of the rocs at a time, but like to have seasoned in back-ups in the bag.
