Gateway has many blends of wonderful baseline plastics.
MVPs Electron in soft and firm are both awesome. Electron Firm feels very much like Gateway Eraser.

Westside Origio is good. Best of the trilogy plastics...including their so called premium.

Prodiscus base feels good, if you don't mind clover tops.

Prodigy 300 feels good...but...meh... better than DX anyway.

But the best putter plastic is RPM Hard Magma. As firm as IF Pro but textured more like Gateway. It's amazing stuff.

Only if you like pitting with waxy crayons.

Gateway makes great baseline plastic no doubt. Never held 300 plastic or anything prodiscus or RPM...so no opinion on that...But if you think DX and KC Pro/McPro sucks, how the hell can you like origio and electron? Surely not for the durability.

Gateway has several dozen variations of the same plastic.

Innova has the best baseline... too bad they quit making it.

I think the best base lines are prodigy 300 and gateway sure grip. I think these 2 baselines are closest to the midgrade plastics like the pro, bt, jawbreaker, etc. Granted all companies are hit or miss so I try not to buy discs without feeling them first.

I love Discraft and Innova, but ill be the first to say they are lagging behind on the low tier plastic realm (most of it feels good in hand, but i'm talking about durability).

Electron soft is super durable. I have an Atom that has over 2 years on it in the bag and it's still a 8/10. It had over a year as my primary putter.

Electron Firm is also durable, but there can be a bit of rim warping on a solid hit. It can be straightened out though. All firm baselines warp on hard hits.

Notice I left out Electron Medium. If that is what you have experience with...yeah, I understand you not liking it. Waffle top city, baby! More useless than DX.

Oh I thought Simon and Eagle were getting married and touring together as a couple since it was Valentine's Day. I guess y'all's speculation makes more sense than mine.

I’ve tried the firm and medium. They felt great but beat up quickly in my brief trial with a pair of ions. I’ll agree that the firm was much better than medium. I wouldn’t consider either in an upgrade on DX durability wise though.

Literally any other company - I think Innova is THE WORST for baseline - which is odd since they are the leaders in most other areas - but Trilogy has great baseline with 3 firmness choices, same with MVP and Prodigy being good as well. Discraft kinda sucks but theyre trying - Innova has been the worst without a doubt - their putters are slippery, warp, don't have good grip, break in the cold, slip out of chains - the only thing is when they are worn in nicely they are good for weather 55-75 degrees. and that's it. Too cold, they suck, too hot? they suck

Innova Baseline SUCKS! - Fight me!!!
