Will one of these work haha... actually the rounded inner core shared between the Ion and Spin caused me to get a little finicky when I first got the Spin so I got a Proxy or three.. But they couldn't do what the Spin can. (For me) I enjoy the Proxy I think it is most awesome but I got a wicked one two punch with the Envy / Spin.

One minor hole in my theory is the lack of downhill glide on the Spin it gets more glide flat or uphill than most MVP putters but downhill 45 degrees I have to aim higher than I would with a Tangent..

My proton 166 is very neutral out to 150' I threw a few yesterday as flat as I could and other than a 2' track left lhbh it flew pretty straight. 100' and in definitely neutral. 150'+ is generally getting into Comet territory for me where it has enough power to do what I want out to maybe 250'. The space between where the Spin comes in is 100' straight tunnels or any short anhyzer I think I can get it out to 200' if I use some height and hyzer and still get a very straight shot.

Hmmm methinks you haven't thrown the Spin you can vote for multiples on that poll..

Just for fun went to GGGT and grabbed some flight ratings the APX had a weird rating without glide...

Comet 4 5 -2 1
APX 1 X -2 0
Spin 2.5 4 -2 0
Anode 2.5 3 0 0
Polecat 1 2 0 0
C Aviar 2 3 0 0
Envy. 3 3 0 2

Speed Glide HSS LSS

I've thrown MVP discs. Ion, Aonde, Envy, Vector, Tangent...none of them had any glide and were really speed sensitive. They fly their best when thrown hard - the comet flies very well across a much wider range of speed. Maybe they have some things in the lineup that are similar now, I don't know.

I stand by my first statement though - the classic aviar is the closest thing to a comet I have thrown as a putter.

One of the things I like about the Spin is that it's responsive across a wide range of speeds, whether I'm carving a line around trees 60' out or 200' out. So, no, no need to throw it hard to get it to fly.

Some of those numbers above are crazy wrong. The Polecat has lots of glide.

I agree with the titles statement, and for me just flippy enough to to be useful and a touch awkward in the hand.

I should probably get my hands on an electron one and a light spin one of these days.. I'd like to find a 155 proton to mess with. I imagine the electron has sweet glide. I bought way too many discs this month though..

If someone doubled up and had a couple I will trade.. Got lots of goodies for those of you that dont love it haha.

Hey I had a look at mvp team bag.. Looks like most of them have one ITB and they list it for ranges under 150'..

The Electron I got from the circuit event reminded me of a slower Theory. I've been tempted to pick up a Proton, to range better than my Proxy, but I really only ever play with my 6 disc bag anymore and can't imagine dropping any of my current discs for it.

I don't think the Spin has enough HSS to be considered a slower Comet.

I'd nominate a seasoned Proxy for that description before a Spin.

Yeah I can see where you and Thomas Orion are coming from with the Proxy love it is a sweet disc especially if you have extra power. It is still awesome for lower armspeed too don't get me wrong... I don't get the same glide as the Spin but I'm also using it at less than 200'. I love it for straight flights it's almost like cheating..
