Interesting to hear. I plan to give the Proxy a shot as my putting putter this weekend. I'm using soft electron Ions and I love them, but playing one disc rounds with my soft neutron proxy has shown me its a competent putting disc for my style.

Which plastic were you using? I'm hoping the soft electron version shows good enough glide for me to consider going back to two putter molds.

Does the Soft Electron Proxy feel any deeper or more shallow than Neutron?

On my soft cosmic the depth feels the same as soft neutron or plasma, though it has a touch more dome.

After a great round with my medium Electron Proxy, I have mixed feelings about it.

It goes really far. The glide is real. The plastic feels awesome. Everything is mostly great.

There were three main things I struggled with:
1 - I couldn’t get a feel for when the turn would kick in. Sometimes it would hold a hyzer, sometimes it would stand up and glide straight for days when I wanted it to hold the hyzer.

2 - speaking of glide, I found this disc harder to range than my Neutron Proxy. I flew past the basket a few times.

3 - the soft Electron Proxy was only marginally softer than the medium. I was hoping for a really soft plastic like on my soft Pilots.

All in all, it’s good and I’m looking forward to more rounds.

Any idea on how the soft electron beats in? Mine (172g) is only a touch less stable than my 172g neutron, which is deadly straight.

I took it out for a dog walk/field session today; got some really nice rips. It worked surprisingly well in a mild headwind; flipped up to flat and hyzered out at 280-300'. Flat release in the same wind got a late turn and finished to the right a couple times at 310-320'. Tailwinds it flew super straight with an elevator finish just slightly left. Between the electron and neutron I might be using my mids less often.

If you want a longer proxy check out an alias, they are OOP tho.

I second this. I love the Proxy though. I'll go for 10' shorter and more accuracy with my Proxy though. I replaced my Buzzz SS with my Proxy. The distance is near the same but I just feel much more accurate with the putter.

How many putt putt with a Proxy?

I see comment above about how it isn't a putting putter but I started using it as such about a month ago and putting better than ever. Granted I'm also playing more than ever before so that could just be getting in more rounds too, lol. Or maybe it is style?

I putt with mine but I'm switching to the Envy for a bit more stability.
