Outta curiosity, by that do you mean the Theory is the only MVP/Axiom disc with that level of glide, or that the Theory is the only disc in that range that you want to use?

mvp do seem glideless, minus the 150 discs, and maybe the tangent.

A few weeks ago I took an "all-MVP/Axiom" bag to the course for the first time in a long time. I had become used to glidey approach discs, such as the Warden, the Aviar3, the Mirage, the Star Colt, etc. The Proxy and the Envy, while excellent and accurate discs, had no glide.

So for longer approaches, I ended up using MVP mids, the Vector, Axis, and Tangent where with Innova and Trilogy discs I was approaching with putt & approach discs. No big deal, but it showed me the relatively glideless nature of MVP/Axiom discs. That's not a complaint, just an observation.

Any love for this putter?

I bought some recently, 2 XT and one GStar and I like them. It's like the shallowness of the Ringer and the neutral flight of the Pure but with a bead and smooth rim.

I have been putting with XT Colts for about five years. Also use Colts for approaches and short drives that need to drift gently right.

Stud is a slightly more stable variant on the Colt. Feels the same in hand but works better for FH approaches. Putts nearly identically in the circle.

Harp for OS putter duties.

Several of the top FPOs putt with Colts.

Madison Walker is one of them. She talks about the Colt in her recent ITB video.

I haven't really putted with the Colt (nor Stud), but I could. They're fast for putting, but accurate.

As discussed in the past, the Colt and Stud did not mold up as well in premium plastics as they did in DX and XT, but I find that my Star Stud is a useful throwing/approach disc between the Harp and Mirage. The Star Colt is relatively flippy/understable.

I've only ever owned one star Colt, but I throw it all the time. Maybe I have a weird one but it flies straight even if I power it to 275-300 ft.

My XT on the other hand flips over on anything over 150 ft, but it's been very beaten in.
