I am so creeped out right now. We were making jokes in the office and I was doing a goofy "staying alive" dance routine... 3 minutes later I look at this thread and go to the MVP site, where I see this image..... CREEPY

Tbird is correct. It's stable, not understable.
So who is lying?

It's stamped -1, but it's not understable. It has just barely less HSS than the Envy


EDIT: BTW, when did MVP start stamping flight numbers on their discs?

After throwing a Neutron Proxy for a season, I would describe it as very neutral... but will tun a tiny bit if you REALLY get on it.
If they asked me, I would have suggested 0.5 instead of -1.

The funny part is... it says straight-stable right underneath where it gives it a -1 turn...

It has more glide than 3, too. I know all flight ratings are subjective (and glide the most subjective of all) but there's no way the Proxy can go as far as it does with only 3 glide. It is the longest putter I've ever thrown.

My Proxy flight ratings: 3/4/0/0.5

Perhaps it is so hard to accurately rate because it is such a unique disc. 0 turn and <1 fade is a bizarre combo. I can't think of any other discs that are as HSS as a Proxy while also having essentially no fade.

I get it, but it's not the first disc to have questionable flight numbers.
It shouldn't be labeled -1. It's a stable disc.

The arrow points to "Straight-Stable". I think nobody is lying.

They should have just rated it for what it is, no turn, zero fade:

3 | 4 | 0 | 0

The only problem I see with that is that a lot of people will think "oh, so it's like a Mako but a putter." And the Proxy is nothing like a Mako. Makos only fly straight with clean form and zero wind. Proxies fly straight even with a moderate breeze, and can overcome a fair amount of OAT.
