Interesting. Puts them more in the Zero/Pro/300 price range. Probably a decent indication of how they'll feel.

If I could get an Envy that feels like Prodigy 300 plastic? Yes, please.

With the limited run, I.I.think they'll have 1000 testers haha. Pretty cool concept. I didn't think about it at first.

Granted some people will hoard them to collect, but enough people will throw them that MVP (one of the few companies who listens to their fans on the Internet) can get a good gauge of how the plastic holds up and is recieved. And you know they will make any tweaks necessary until it is totally perfect. These dudes are smart.

with larger retail orders pricing around $10 could be possible at times for them to offer sales etc.

I really hope its like the old latitude GRIP line plastic and definitely more on the higher end vs some of the candle wax baseline blends out there....

Had 'em for a couple months. I only designated 1 firm and 2 soft as throwers, so I was ginger with them at first. But recently I took them to a porous limestone shred-your-disc course and they held up really well. Feel and durability is like Sure-grip from Gateway, which I love. The two blends are on point. I'd say Formula 1 is like a nice firm Soft Wiz feel, and Formula 2 is like a nice SSS Wiz on the firmish side of SSS, but not quite as firm as SS. I'm tuned into Gateway's baseline flavor and these made me immensely happy. Couple Innova/Legacy/Gateway nerds who felt them up were equally impressed.

can you comment on the overall shape retention? Some baseline discs completely lose shape upon "tuning" or a few tree hits.. Always found MVP to be better than others in that sense and hope its true with these.

I've been loving the Envy I have, so a slightly less OS version in baseline would be an awesome putter; also dig the baseline plastic idea.
