Those damage pics caught me by surprise. While I actually bag very few of their discs anymore, i do own quite a few. I have ever had any rim damage and my biggest complaint has been-they are too damn durable. I have the worst time breaking in a mold that is supposed to have turn. My Inspire may as well be a Clash, even after too many tree hits to count, and about ten full speed encounters with a cinder block wall.

Hm, tough question. I have one that I throw all the time (SP breaker) and one that I absolutely love the flight of (gold-x pure)

All things being equal, I probably enjoy throwing the pure the most. The breaker feels more like a great tool that fits my needs.

Like a lot of others are saying I love throwing the Soft Neutron Envy. I do not putt with it but really like throwing it, it can take hits off trees and hold its shape just fine. I also throw and used to putt with Neutron Ions, actually still run it with the Ion from 60+.

The premium plastic from MVP might be my favorite.

I just threw new Sky God IV today, and they are more overstable than my Plasma Envy. Beefcakes with glide. Turnovers go really far for me.

If you can find a couple, buy them.

at first it was a p2 in g-line. Now I'm liking the metal flake glow alpacas.

If they made wide rimmed drivers in electron, I don’t think they would last a week.

Neutron Ions are still my favorite premium driving putters.

I putt and sometimes throw with Electron Soft pilots, and they do get nicked up very easily, however the plastic is so soft that it also melts easily as well. I've heat-treated my putting Pilots over my stove burner after every 5 rounds or so, and I manage to keep them looking and feeling like new even after several months of usage.

In the below picture, my two Pilots showed equal amounts of damage after several rounds of play, but the one on the right is after about 5-10 minutes of heat-treatment.

I have a PW wizard that’s been in the bag for probably 4 years. It looks better than the one on the left, what did you say? 5 months? If MVP would do the electron flight plate with the premium rims, I think it would help a lot. Call it electron+ or something. I can’t speak for the streamline baseline stuff.
