Those first run Electron Pilots are super sweet, lowered my score from circles edge and out, but get dog-eared quickly with normal putting and practice use. Went through four of them this year !!

Went back to my Wardens in classic blend for regular putting duties. These will last a full year of heavy use.

Keeping a newish Electron bagged for those long putts and approach uses. It just glides with little effort. Also have a Proton for more stable use and the Eclipse (Mostly Glowless!!)
for when the daylight escapes the course.

Anyone that grabbed a Plasma Pilot, is it as deep as the Proton Pilot? I have two Electron Pilots that feel shallower than my Proton Pilot and I’d be interested in throwing a shallower Pilot in something other than Electron.

All the premium plastics and Firm Electron have the same shoulder height and feel identical in the hand. I think the nature of the Medium and Soft Electron just cools differently out of the mold. The shoulder just doesn't seem as pronounced. All Electrons tend to get puddle topped when beaten in and depending on where you place your thumb gives the perception of a higher shoulder. So in a round about answer -- all premiums are identical. Cosmic Neutron is the only one that seems to fly a tick more OS than the rest. Electrons just because of the nature of the plastic feels a tad different in the hand when new.

I was on the road a few months back and picked up a used Electron at Hazy Shade for a couple quick rounds locally.
Great disc. Lots of glide and great accuracy, I really enjoyed this one and it reminds me a lot of a first run Reko.
Just picked up a great Santa Claws stamp neutron from Infinite, interested to see how they glide in neutron and if it might be worth holding onto as a driving putter.

Currently putting with K3 Rekos and throwing K1 and K1 Glow.
I have been trying out a Neutron Pilot as a thrower. The discs are very similar in hand feel with the Pilot being slightly more comfortable for me as a thrower. I like shallow discs. The Pilot is a hair longer with a tad more glide for me and has less fade. The Reko definitely has more finish at the end.

The Pilot is very straight but mine is pretty fresh. I am really enjoying it and may order an Electron version to see how it goes against my K3s. For now, I would number the Neutron Pilot as 3/4/-.5/1 and the K1 Reko as 3/3/0/1.5

Anyone compare the Reko in K3 to the various Electron plastics?

To me quite similar in feel to firm electron, K3 is just more durable.

LOL, thanks for the compliment

Today’s round had a grudge match between the Pilot, Envy, Ohm, proxy, and others. I used to be all about Pilots, especially the soft Electron. The Ohm is making a strong case against the Pilot though.

Morning folks! Hey I was looking at the eclipse proton pilot.. It's listed as 2/5/0/1 on the disc yet from what I read here it sounds like it might be the most neutral flyer.. Just curious what the word was, I'm essentially looking for a glow Ohm. Any comparisons?

Just picked up a glow recently, it is definitely less OS than cosmic N. Flies a tad bit more OS than a used Neutron I got. I think the glow and neutron would be fairly close when fresh.
