I've had a couple of firm E for 6 months or so. Found them at a local shop.

If you want to THROW an atom, just get a neutron or Proton. Its worth it, its like a different disc, all around short to mid-range throws it flies a solid straight line - don't miss out.
I guess I should have been smart enough to include that information in my original post (but I wasn't):

I will only being using the Atom for putts!

Is there a big grip or stiffness difference between the Medium Electron and the Neutron or Proton?

I have an understable Star Mirage and a Lucid Judge I love for my approaches...but I might just have to take a look at the Atom for one of those spots as well

Thanks for all the input!

Medium is firmer than proton, but it is very fragile. Soft has the same rim firmness, but the plate is soft and does not wrinkle like the med.

For putting only duties, I would recomend staying away from the medium if wrinkles bother you.

If strictly putting, definitely use Electron - it grips the chains so well, for real.
And honestly, Atom is THE approach disc, you should really try it in a premium plastic for that. Not to push it , but Atom in premium is the nicest short range thrower I've ever used. I don't primarily putt with the atom - I truly feel it shines as a short mid-range approach disc. It has incredible High speed stability and just lasers straight, its so comfortable in the hand and so simple with a perfect predictable flight....its the shixzzle-- I'll leave it at that.

How would Proton or Neutron work as a putting only plastic?

Also, does the Atom have a feel (as far as shape) that resembles the Pure in any way? I like the feel of the Pure in hand but never found a plastic I gelled with.

Thanks!

What do you putt with? I completely agree on its potential as a mid / approach putter I honestly have only thrown my one for a few days but I see the potential.. If I was a little more confident on my 30-40' putts I could run with the Atom a lot more I love the hss that's what was missing with the Proxy for me.

Feels very similar to a Pure, but slightly smaller dia.

I used to putt with a Pure and Envy, now it is an Atom and Envy.

That's great to hear!!!

I loved the stiffness of the Zero Medium Pure but found it a little too slick. Tried the Opto Pure which gave me too much grip...I had problems with the disc leaving my hand cleanly on putts.

Hopefully I can find an Atom plastic that gives me the best of both!

Thanks for the help!

Thank you for this....I thought I was going crazy yesterday. I have a Zero Medium Pure (I used to use for putting) and an Opto Pure (currently using for approaches)...I was putting with both yesterday and the Opto felt entirely different (larger) in my hand than the Zero. I definitely preferred the feel in hand of the Zero but it was a bit too slick for my liking to putt with, tried going to the Opto for putting but it was too grippy.

Currently trying to figure out which Electron Plastic will give me the stiffness of the Zero Medium with a bit more tack (but not Opto tack).

Anyway, I'm glad I read your post today...makes me think I'm not quite as crazy as I thought I was yesterday!

It's tough to say how you'll prefer things, with my experience with Trilogy medium plastics it is similar to Electron Medium - but still I'd say get a Firm and a Medium just to see for sure, then stock up on a few.
