What kind of basket and normal putt is that? lol.... Something doesn't add up as mine don't have any gouges from 2-3 18+ hole rounds being the only putter I had in the bag.

DX when new doesn't grip remotely as good as electron plastic and ranges pretty wide in firmness/durability. Hitting some rocks was the worst damage yet but that was expected.

With how durable N/P plastic can be, at this point electron is great. Hopefully a firm version would be a touch more durable for mids or drivers. Soft ones would feel IMO.

Basket made of nails and broken glass

Just a DGA basket. It could have been a fluke for sure, but these have been less durable than DX in my experience. Like you said, that's not necessarily bad with the other blends available. I do think a firm would be useful though.

My reg Atoms have little dents along the edge, but no gouges, chunks missing, or hangnails. I've only used it for putting though, including about a 100 putts on a DGA(Mach Lite) practice basket.

yeah firm DX is actually more like neutron vs electron really. They don't even have much grip at first when new. Is R Pro plastic still a thing from innova? They definitely have that kind of a feel over the more "plastic" like baseline discs.

The only time my Atoms have had gouges taken out is from hitting the base of my Mach Lite Basket. I have hit a couple of trees and you can barely tell.

My new Atom arrived from DGC and the plate is kind of wavy/warped, not that big of a deal but kind of annoying. I'm going to try heating it and flattening it I think, maybe I can fix it.

Liking the Atom more and more as a putter, hits chains and drops. And that's not even the soft version. Getting long putts dialed in with it now too, not as much float, but good glide.
