looks like the Atom is a hybrid of my two favorite putters, the Pure and the Envy (or as I call it, my pure envy combo).

I want to like this disc...but I need a firm putter.

Its definitely one of the cloest discs ive thrown to a pure in flight and feel when brand new. Agree 10000000x on a firm/hard electron.

My Pure's are fadeless, while my Atom has fade, though it can easily be mitigated by release angle. I'm talking about longer putts and approach shots.

Still want a premium Atom. So much awesome for upshots, just want it to last longer.

isn't that the envy pretty much? Yes I know it has a bigger bead and not exactly the same but VERY similar.

are we talking drives? I could see the desire for premium atoms. The envy is different enough when new.

This. I find the Envy just doesn't feel the same in the hand, and it is more overstable on powered-down upshots. For my second most-used disc in my bag, I want a feel I can be confident in.

That said, I've done fine with the Electron Atom, so premium isn't really a need. Just a want.

I found the atom to have plenty of LSS when new considering it is a baseline disc too and yes on drives. Lighter weight envys are not quite as LSS off the shelf and come in plethora of premium plastics. I would easily bag both if I didn't rock the do it all 1 trick pony, ion.

I do have a proxy on the way with my order to toy around with a little. kind of miss that beat-in pure like disc even though the ions do work it might fit in my smaller bag very well.
