Ever feel the need for something meatier in, well, each category??

Feel like the verdict is missing in your mids! Love me the truth/verdict combo!

Is the rim width an OCD tendency?? If so, I get
It... go through phases like that all the time...

I used to throw meatier stuff, but it was hiding bad form. So I've intentionally tried to go with more neutral molds. Longbowman and Suspect are overstable, particularly in VIP/Lucid (I have a VIP Longbowman for windier days), but I'm mostly in the woods where wind isn't a factor. Would the Verdict overlap with the Suspect?

The rim width has become an OCD thing. It started with wanting something in between my Buzzzes (1.2 cm) and Teebirds (1.7). Now it's about consistency. I don't want to have to adjust for different feeling fairway drivers, for example. And the non-negotiable width is 1.8 for the fairway slot. That's perfect for my hands. Not so big that it starts to feel like a distance driver, not so small that I might snap it too much.

The Verdict is a little less glidey and more fade truth. Not a meathook, but useful if you want more fade or have a headwind. As far as overlapping with the suspect, I guess that is power dependent. The Verdict is a fast mid and the suspect is a tweener, so I'd think it wouldn't.

I get the width thing, don't get me wrong. I have the same OCD tendency for the spread of my primary throwers, with an almost consistent difference of 0.4mm between each area:
1.1 Envy
1.5 Truth
1.9 Undertaker
2.2 Destroyer*

* the gap here isn't 0.4 from Undy to DS, but distance difference is enough!

So I get where you're coming from. I dig the bag, though! Could definitely go to the corse with it and would have a good idea of what to throw.

I throw the EMac Truth in the 275-325 range and the Suspect in the 210-260 range.

The other setups I've envisioned are Prodigy putters (1.0) and MDs/MD3s (1.4)instead Suspect/Theory and the Truths. That would be 0.4 until distance drivers.

I've also considered using Envy/Proxy (1.1) instead of Suspect/Theory.

Envy is an awesome disc. Great stability. I rock a beat neutron envy in the proxy spot, but it's a great combo!

How understable is the Proxy?

I've owned a couple. The proxy is not understable. It's stable. Good HSS, maybe a hair of turn, and very minimal LSS, maybe a hair of fade. Essentially a true point-n-shoot Putter. I've only driven with it, so no putting experience.

The Envy has true 0 HSS, with maybe a 1.5-2 fade. A premium Teebird of putters. I like to have fade on my discs, as I feel it increases predictability for me, so I really like the envy.

Love the Pipelines and the EMac. I bag both. I made space in my bag for another OS putter, the Caltrop, by getting rid of my Verdict, as I found that for most things the EMac would suffice. Only if it's a really windy day do I miss the Verdict. If you feel the need to bridge the gap between Pipeline and Truth, maybe a River. I would really recommend the Archer but that isn't the rim width you're looking for.

That was my fear on the Proxy. It's hard to find an understable putter that is a bit longer, comes in premium plastic, and has a stable-overstable complement.
