Beaded putters are often too deep feeling, I'm on a beadless tear right now. The only beaded disc in my bag is the tiny bead on the Harp.

I've been looking for a putter to replace my Mako for short approaches. Picked up an Electron Atom the other day to compare to a couple of other models. Threw it today several times in direct comparison to the other discs and decided to bag it. It's the designated disc for short approaches, now. I like the feel of the low profile for approach shots and it holds lines for me like the Mako does, without any worry about wind causing it to glide long past the pin.

I reckon it's a regular, as it feels like a base plastic and doesn't have any markings to indicate a soft blend. I'm still learning MVP plastics. It's a bit lighter than what I usually throw (159g) and still held to lines well in the wind today.

If it doesn't say soft under Electron then it's a regular. I have a reg 160g Atom and it is a blast to throw

I prefer the Atom in this thread. The one in the other thread is garbage

Agreed.

I enjoyed putting with the Atom I tested. Wasn't going to challenge my current putters but liked the very neutral flight. Little too shallow of a rim for me, but good putter none the less.

Eclipses have white rims, but not very many molds available in the plastic.
