MVP Disc Golf Putters
Hey there Precisioners!
We are excited to be back in producing content at regular intervals again moving into 2019!
I’ll start this year out with a bit that helps people learn a brand that many players only know at a topical level, MVP & Axiom discs (Streamline is their single mold brand, but as they come out with more molds and I have more experience I’ll cover that).
As my bag is currently all GYRO, I have spent almost a full season with their discs, and can help answer the most common questions people have when trying to explore their curiosity with this GYRO technology. We will start with the discs that are used the most in every round: Putters.
I will be talking about the discs I currently bag, and have thrown, however for the purposes of this article we will be looking at tee shots and approaches, not putting. The reason I don’t want to give opinion on putting putters is that I believe the most important part of choosing a putter is how it feels in the hand. Choosing a stability that suits your putting style is second most important, but for most people, finding a disc they feel comfortable holding and putting with, is the most important factor.
MVP Discs Putter: Axiom Envy
The first disc I want to talk about is the Axiom Envy. The Envy is likely the disc most of the people in my circle know about in the MVP/Axiom lineup. The flight numbers are 3/3/0/2, and in full disclosure I don’t put a lot of stock in flight numbers. I currently bag five of the Envy, and have also found that they have enough distance potential where I no longer bag any midrange discs. The Envy has great stability for strong backhand throws, and I use mine for shots all the way up to 350 feet! I use the Envy for tee shots, approaches, and putting. In the summer, I putt with the Electron firm plastic (very stiff) because I like a stiff baseline plastic feel putter. However, in the winter, I putt with both the Electron, and the Electron soft plastic (today it’s 8 degrees Fahrenheit in Minnesota, so the disc feels markedly harder than in warmer temperatures). My usual summer lineup looks like this:
1x Neturon soft Envy. This is one of the most reliably overstable plastic types for this mold. For hyzer and wind shots.
2x Electron Envy. Usually 1 nearly brand new and still fresh for very straight hyzer flip shots, and 1 pretty beat up for my turnover or understable putter needs.
1x Electron firm Envy. For putting (in the winter this changes to Electron soft).
1x Glow Eclipse Envy. The least glide and most overstable Envy I have is in this plastic. It’s the closest disc in the MVP/Axiom lineup to a Zone.
