So for a putter lineup im thinking Atom/Envy/Entropy. Seems like that should cover all putt and approach in all conditions? Also all will have a similar enough rim feel?

Am i off base with this?
The Atom spin putts awesome; it is a little more dumpy(on pure push putt lines) than Ions or Envys and needs that extra spin to keep it stable.

The Envy spins and pop putts well and has more glide than the Atom; it is also one of the greatest driving putters ever made.

The Entropy feels like a beadless Harp and is a brick.

Yeah, between those, you have most bases covered. I am a putter w**** though, I usually have 5 or 6 different molds in my bag. Right now I have a Pure in the place of the Atom.

Basically the difference, is the nose is a hair higher on the top side of envy's rim and the angle of the bottom edge is slightly more vertical than the atom. They both have the "square" corner to inner side of the rim.

Ions get a lot less brickish with less weight but keep their stability well. A bit lighter Ion for long putts might work as well. I started learning to spin putt with a 150s Plasma Ion and it's very zippy.

Axiom pyro

Im not sure why, but i wasnt expecting this type of rim. It looks fast and feels comfortably chunky in my hand. Forehand grip feels great too. Which is great. I havent messed with a ton of midranges, but i have never had one with this type of rim.

I only have a matrix to compare. I will try and get some throws in tomoro.

Yea, it looks a lot like the Deflector which also looks almost more like a fairway type rim than a mid.

Just threw the pyro about 10 times. I would say its a slightly more glidey version of the deflector. It finds the hyzer very quickly out of the hand. Fights out of an anny very quickly. I would also still consider it dumpy, just not as dumpy as the deflector.
Not what i was looking for.
Im at 2300ft asl, maybe its better at sea level.

I don't understand how in the world an ion is ever "brickish"? Explain? I throw a Max weight proton and a 170 plasma, and they are a far cry from a brick.
