What is the Best MVP/Axiom Putter?

Updated: Jan 20, 2023

If you've fallen into love with the look, feel, and uniqueness of MVP brand discs and are currently looking for a solid putter option for both putting, throwing, and both, then you're in the right place!

In this article, we're going to be giving you the rundown on all of the best, and most popular MVP and Axiom (manufactured by MVP) molds for you to add to your bag today.

If you're unfamiliar with MVP discs, you may be surprised to learn that they utilize a unique disc combination of 2 different plastics on all of their discs, one on the outside of the disc along the rim and for the core of the disc.

This is known as an overmold, and MVP specifically calls this their GYRO technology.

This method of disc manufacturing is said to positively affect the physics of how a disc flies through the air and in turn, allowing it to maintain these flight characteristics for a longer period of time.

In their own words, MVP states that a player throwing an MVP disc will "achieve straighter, longer, and more accurate results".

And who can argue with them, as their discs have become very popular.

Pro player James Conrad even recently won the world title with MVP discs in his first year sponsored by the brand.

Other brands have attempted to perfect this overmold technology, but none have done it as well as as MVP.

Even if you have never heard of MVP or Axiom as a brand, chances are you may have heard of the Envy.

And if you still don't know about the Envy, you may remember the iconic moment when James Conrad hit a 247 foot field ace to tie Paul McBeth in the 2021 World Championships.

Want to take a stab at which disc he used to accomplish this feat?

That's right, the Envy!

But the Envy was VERY popular even before this moment.

It is a slightly overstable putter that is primarily used for throwing whether off the tee or for approaches, but is extremely popular due to its consistency and versatility to hold just about any line it is put on.

When thrown with a flat release, the Envy will cruise out of the hand and hold nearly a straight flight the entire way before fading softly at the end.

The more beat in, the straighter this disc will fly, and the better it will hold the line you put it on.

You could say it gets better with age!

If you get a chance to try this awesome disc, do so!

Flight Ratings: 3, 3, 0, 1.5

If on the other hand, you're looking for a putting putter from MVP, then look no further than the Ion.

This very popular option will feel great in the hand of those who like beaded putters.

While it will make a good putting option, there are many players out there who bag this disc as their primary thrower, so it can be very versatile in that regard.

Some even say that it flies more understable than stable to overstable, making it a good choice for beginners with slower arm speed who are looking for a putting putter and throwing putter all in one.

Try it today!

Flight Ratings: 3, 3, 0, 0.5

#3 on our list of best and most popular MVP putters is the very straight flying Anode.

Like the Ion, this disc is used by many for their primary putting putter, but when thrown off the tee or from the fairway is also a great option when you need a disc that is going to fly reliably slow and straight when approaching the basket.

The tacky grip feels great in the hand and will allow the disc to grab chains from both close and far!

Flight Ratings: 3, 3, 0, 1

Utilizing the same core as the #1 disc on our list, the Envy, the Atom features a different overmold on the outside that enhances grip and allows this disc to fly a little bit straighter than the Envy.

It can be used as a putter or a thrower, but as it beats in, the gentle Fade of 1 that this disc will have out of the box will slowly wane and become less noticeable.

This makes the Atom an excellent, and extremely straight flying disc whether you decide to use it as your go to putting putter, or go to driving putter.

Although the Anode is also straight flying, the Atom will have just the slightest amount more of fade making it easier to rip on without turning over.

Regardless, it's a great option when straightness in the shot is key!

Flight Ratings: 3, 3, -1, 0.5

Like the Atom, the Proxy also utilizes the same core as the Envy, but unlike the slightly overstable Envy and the straight flying Atom, the Proxy allows a player to add a slightly understable option to their bag.

As this disc beats in, it will naturally become more understable, making it great for hyzer flips or shots that call for short turnover shots from the tee or fairway.

Being that it is slightly understable, it will favor beginners with slower arms or players who prefer to have a slightly less than stable disc to putt with.

If you like the Envy, and you like the Atom, then you need to grab yourself a Proxy!

Flight Ratings: 4, 3, 0, 3

Next up, we move on to the most overstable option on our list by far, the Entropy!

This 0 Turn, 3 Fade overstable putter is going to be a must have disc if you want to bag MVP discs exclusively.

It's no secret that the Zone by Discraft is one of the most popular overstable approach putters on the market, and the Entropy is going to challenge it as it is a great approach disc in its own right.

Some players have even been ditching their Zones and replacing them with the Entropy as they found it much more reliable!

On the surface, the flight ratings are that of other overstable putter options on the market, but you'll need to get your hands on one to truly appreciate what it can add to your disc golf game when out on the course.

With predictable overstability, the Entropy will fly relatively straight and fight headwinds extremely well before eventually finishing reliably to the left for RHBH throws.

It will be equally good for forehand approaches when needed.

Hyzer lines will be no problem and anhyzer lines will provide you with a great flex option to have in your bag of tricks.

All in all, be sure to give it a try!

Flight Ratings: 2, 4, 0, 1

Last but certainly not least on our list is one of the newer putters from MVP, the Nomad.

Despite being new to the lineup, it is quickly becoming one of the more popular putter molds that MVP offers and it would not surprise me at to see this disc near the top of the list for next year.

Offered under James Conrad's signature line, the Nomad is popular for a variety of players as both a throwing putter and a putting putter. The fade of 1 allows it to hold a nice straight flight path for max power drivers while also offering just a little bit of stability when using it for putts.

If you're looking for a new option to try out and use in a variety of situations, consider the Nomad!

And that concludes our list of the best MVP/Axiom Putters!
