Default Axiom Envy vs. Proxy

I have an Axiom envy on the way. But after doing more research, Im wondering what the noticeable differences are between the proxy and the envy? The proxy sounds stable enough to handle most situations...does that mean the envy has a healthy fade compared to it or whats the deal?

The envy is just a proxy with more fade and a small bead. Proxy is true 0 LSS while envy is more like 2

Thats all. Just like anode and ion. Very similar outside of slight feel and LSS.

Yup the first 90% of the flights are identical. The envy will fade the proxy won't. The proxy also can handle anny lines a little better, but if thrown nose up or with enough height you can evoke some pull out of anny lines. One of my favorite proxy shots.

I plan on picking up the proxy at some point. I can see the benefit. I just wish they had the proxy in soft plastic.

The Envy is also available in Proton, while the Proxy is not.

True but if you can get your hands on a Watermelon Proxy, it's proton and I love it. It has held its HSS for longer than my neutron did.

I'll let you know his thoughts... He doesn't like the disc, but he also hasn't thrown it.

Edit: on topic- So a proxy has the same HSS as an Envy but no fade? Sounds Berg like, unique flight... Does the Proxy glide well?
