Mids in Electron, to go with the Atom that's on its way.

Hold them each in a power grip. That alone should show you they're different, much less my photo that clearly proves it.

Neutron is the best I've thrown.

Depends on where you live and what you like. Only choices for Proxy plastic are Neutron (+soft) or Plasma. Here in the PacNW, I use Neutrons when it is dry and Plasma when damp or wet due to the extra 'grip' I perceive. I actually like Protron/Electron best, when available.

That post was from awhile back...the one showing photos of the 2 from way too far away(?) and the suspect "matching" overlay that was conjured up. Oh well...

Kansas, so some rain but grip isn't too big an issue. I always carry a towel. Leaning towards N with the bomber stamp, but wanted to make sure there wasn't an overriding reason to go with Plasma for driving duties.

For most people the Atom should get you by until an Electron Proxy is released. It's not misinformation to say they are extremely close. They also pair up pretty well especially when the Atom breaks in and starts having high speed turn while the Proxy remains dead straight.

Just my opinion but there are other gaps that need filling before an Electron Proxy is out in the wild.

As much as I would love an electron Proxy for putting, I agree with this. I would love to see the 17 and 16mm classes filled out more, in addition to the ever-mystical OS mid and putter.

I'm still confused as to why MVP's Wrath-speed class and above are so well filled out and the lower speeds just aren't. I won't complain though, still the best stuff on the market
