Trying to adjust from a Judge as well. Time will tell.

Did some outside testing with these toaday.

The grip is fantastic but man are these easy to damage. Anyone who wants an electron volt may as well just carve one out of frozen butter.

That's why mine will be used strictly for putting. Pick another MVP/Axiom putter plastic for throwing, IMO.

Electron normal is pretty soft, I'm hoping for Electron Hard if they make driver/mid molds in that plastic. I still think it handles tree hits pretty well though, better than DX and Innova makes everything in DX it seems like.

I just got two more Atoms. Same weight, one feels flatter. I'm guessing that will be the thrower and the domey one will be the putter. I could see carrying three atoms and an envy.

The 2 reg electron Atoms I got are both slightly concave. And both with the bubble, that seems to be disappearing...which I didn't sweat anyway for putting with.

Make one a thrower for a month and then see if your opinion changes.

My thrower looks like garbage but still flies fantastically.

I think it would be different for a driver but I could be wrong, but that's kinda the case with most base line plastic.

So far it hasn't been more durable than dx in my testing. I very easily put a deep gouge in the rim on a normal putt for example.


I'm not saying this is bad or good though. Just my observations.

But how is it affecting stability? DX gets thrashed looking and becomes flippy. Haven't seen the same with Electron yet.

I'm about to go spend an hour with an Atom and a chain link backstop.
