Really? If I remember right, mid is a straight line, all ss has to do is wait until puppet gets close to the creeps and he runs up and drops hand one, puppet is scared and goes back, and hand two comes out, puppet runs to heal and bam hand 3!
Equal skill ? I ve play a lot with ss and the only hero ss fear is blood hunter . Puppet is squishy , 2 decent demon hand = fountain.
As much as I love puppet. I played SS yestrday against him and he was doing pretty goodfor first 2-3 levels, after that I started steam rollong the other team.

It was an interesting match. Really made me think since I consider a pretty good mid hero.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe it's easier for to aggro creeps than because of his attack range, which should let him keep the wave nearer to his tower. Demon Hands to farm also push the lane, so will remain safer near his tower.
A good player will know to sidestep rather than backpedal away from so that he has to constantly re-orient himself to land his nukes.
Don't we have any AngryTestie vs. Chu` playing and matchups for reference?
Puppet will win hands down, he can absolutely destroy soulstealer in lasthits, and once he's level 6 you can just give the old kill yourself combo.
Get AngryTestie mid with puppet vs Chu' as SS, should be fairly interesting!
Puppet has great harrasment with whiplash, and more base dmg than ss, ss is just overrated imo.
SS > PM
Fact is you need one damn skilled PM and probably even a decent amount of luck to really come out on top as PM in a PM vs SS lane, even with a DD rune at the start.
In a fair, equally skilled fight I'd have to give the upper hand to SS no questions asked.
