Yeah, I dropped mids as well, no point in throwing a mid when the Envy and the Proxy can go so far. I almost had two aces today with the Proxy, it's so good at those straight with no fade shots. Spectacular disc

My experience with the Proxy/Envy is with the Neutron and Soft Neutron plastics.
What does Plasma do for stability/durability - and how would that affect roles you use?

I primarily putt with the Proxy and approach with the Envy

Not as flexy as soft but not as stiff as neutron.

It flies the same for me just good grip.

Roger that ranger, Proxy in plasma is awesome out of the box, super straight. I can't comment on the Envy but a plasma envy that's something I want to try, I don't like the Softs, I love the feel but not the flight, I like a proton Envy, plasma proxy.

The soft envy is weird or at least used to be. Mine are more OS than any other envy plastic.

well the plan was one more field work session, then start filming videos. looks like i'll be working on my lefty form the next few days haha.



Plasma Mayhem cracked the skin, then a Teleport ripped it open. Should have stopped after the Mayhem throw.

Guess I should get around to ordering one of those disc golf gloves...

I love the Plasma Proxy for a true understable throwing putter. It's definitely more US than any neutron I have. It putts well too, seems to hold an anny putt and catches fairly well. Durability great - no blemishes and I've used it for about 6 months.

Overall Plasma is grippier and flexier, and more understable (or just less stable) its great plastic tho,

I'll try one next time it happens. Finger is almost completely healed..putter rounds are no issue.

FWIW I haven't found plasma putters to be any more understable than MVP's other plastics. This goes for the Proxy, Envy, Ion and Anode. I've played multiple putter only rounds with all four molds in every available plastic. Don't notice much difference between them except Electron putters seem to want to fade a hair later when brand new. So even if some of the Plasma Proxies out there are more understable, I wouldn't necessarily bank on that when buying one.
