I had to order a couple of these Envy's - Halloween Envy rules - but also need the same for Proxy so it can be a combo

Where do you suggest I go based on those results? I like the Opaque plastics for locating discs on the course (Plasma, Neutron). Haven't thrown Plasma and have no idea how it handles compared to Fission / Neutron. Prior to this lot, the last disc I bought was like 2008.
I'm old (which means I'm accustomed to hyzer-flipping damn near everything) and recently come to throwing primarily MVP, so I might be able to help. I throw discs primarily 163g - 169g.

This is what I carry and throw:

I putt with an Omega SS, still.

Approach/Mids -- Electron Spin and Atom, Streamline Pilot. (Also, Vibram Ibex.)
The Atom is for straightish shots where I want to avoid sailing long. The Pilot is for longer shots where I want carry and throwing long isn't a worry. The Spin is for anything I have to shape with a lot of turnover. (The Ibex is the only true mid and it gets the longer shots and hook shot duty.)

Fairways -- Neutron Signal, Switch, Relay, Volt. The Relay and Volt get most of the work. The Signal is working in as a roller.

Control Drivers -- Neutron Inertia and Impulse. I used to have a Tesla and just never used it much.

Plasma feels better in the hand, to me. I don't have any of it currently because I've not been able to get the color/weight combos that I want. It's just easier to load up on the Neutron for the longer discs.

So is mvp bringing awareness to or in support of illuminati? The latter would be disappointing to me. I have no desire to contribute to that in any way.

Here's where I'm at:

Distance:
2 N Teslas - Mid-160s
1 F Tesla - 163

Looking at Inertia, Motion, Fireball, Wrath, Insanity - What would you fill in here with? Plasma? Neutron?

Roller? - Virus? Impulse? Insanity? Inertia? Other?

Fairway:
1 N Resistor 168

Do I need a Volt? Crave? Amp? Clash? etc? Plasma? Neutron?

Midrange:
1 N Vector -178
1 N Axis - 176
1 N Vertex - 178

I'm throwing the Axis a lot. It feels like an improved Discraft Nebula. Thinking Vector / Vertex will be OS / US Axis. I like the Matrix but transparent's a no go for me.

Putt / Approach:
2 Pl Envys - Mid-170s
1 E Atom - 174

I'm thinking the Envy's will eventually replace Atom in circle. Do I need a N Envy for more OS approach putter?

Teslas are basically longer Volts. Plasma Insanity pairs well with either.

What would mvps or axioms closest thing to a ringer be. Also would you say the envy is faster then the labeled 2 speed, I prefer faster upshot putters.

Envy stole most of my mid work as I grew comfortable with it. Proxy and Envy, great companions and great short drivers.

Envy has a 10mm rim (not unlike many putters, typically either 0.9 or 1.0 cm), but I'd consider the Envy a 3/4/0/2. MVP/Axiom don't list flight numbers in the Innova model, so the 2 you saw was an arbitrary take. Because it is slightly lower profile than a traditional deep dish putter (if the diameter was smaller, Envy would literally fit inside a wizard based on disc height and inside rim height values) and typically has a nice flat top, it can pass for a mid on a glance and in high speed stability.

I'd recommend a Soft Neutron for wooded courses to absorb tree hits and drop in place.

Whoever gets the LE Envy / Tesla's in first should post some pictures and give a little review. Interested to see how the Envy's turn out. I know that my other Plasma Envy is not as OS as my Neutron ones of the same weight. Which is ok for the envy as its straight regardless. Hope the plastic is grippy for the cooler weather we have now and winter soon

PS: How does Plasma hold up in Winter? does it firm up solid or is it still pliable?
