Yeah, I'm having trouble telling the difference between it and my other neutron plastic so I'm going to assume it's the same deal.

I like plasma in the winter, it's my go to unless I can throw electron but I haven't thrown it much below -5 so I don't know how it would hold up.
Might put my plasma photon back in the bag to test then. Been hunting some solid winter plastics that have good grip and durable in dry cold weather. Have a GStar Teebird3 which is perfect for conditions here, along with FP and HP plastic from DareDevil.

Basically trying to round out a small bag for winter and want to get some grippy mids and fairways in there. Would love to have a grippy Servo or Inspire. Could just continue my method of warming the lock point with hand warmers haha.

C'mon MVP, run some more f'n Ohms already. Got mine from a used bin so I'd like to see how I like a fresh one. Put an Envy back in the bag since I have plenty of them and confirmed the Ohm just fits my game better.

In Hex news, I really dig it in the woods. Excellent for straight touch FH shots, still trying to dial it in BH but it's earned a spot in my bag.

So yeah, tried a couple rounds with Envy/Uplink and confirmed Ohm/Hex works better for me.

Just received a stack of Envies - mix of soft, regular, and firm Electron. I bagged the Envy before Electron plastic was available, so I am looking forward to tossing these once the ice melts.

I used to throw soft neutrons, plasmas, and protons. Found out I much prefer the feel of the electrons and switched to the firms.

They are generally a little less stable than their premium plastic counterparts so be prepared.

I bag an overstable putter (currently a Pig) so having a longer, straighter putter in the electron Envy is handy.

Yes, these feel very nice. I plan to put two regular, one soft, and one firm Electron in the car and see how they do on the course.

That would be perfect! Really icy here but they seemed to fly nice and straight on a couple of tosses in the yard.

Yes, I bag a medium Harp for OS duties.

Almost hit a 260’ ace yesterday with a firm electron Envy. It was tracking and I thought I had it but it dropped short and was under the basket against the pole. Sadly took the birdie and continued my lifelong streak of zero aces.

Bummer. Bunch of rounds at Beaver Ranch - Bluebird (clicky) should solve the ace drought.

Nah. Those don’t count. I made a post or thread here about anything under 200’ not really counting. Pretty sure not too many people agreed with me.

Its sort of a running joke with the guys I play with that when someone hits a short ace you congratulate them by saying “nice putt”.

F**k yo friends, and their couch. In is in. I play a short course all the time, it still pays. Call it what you want as long as it's not a cubby. I would demand ace restitution if I hit one with your friends.

Boohoo not long enough? Is your disc in? No well mine is! What do I mark on my scorecard? 1.5? I think not I Card a 1!

Have you hit one of those? They count, longer ones are even cooler.

So if all the baskets are 450'+ should everyone be denied an ace that doesn't throw 500+? Who's dumbass arbitrary idiot rule/length is that? What do you tell the kids? Bah!

Throw that envy again and hit it next time, just start running holes. If you are real hungry start blowing a relay or leopard on a laser. Disc up. Blow past, f it. Ace or nothing, if you really want an ace plan on 40' overshoot and you will putt even better!
