Relay as suggested will turn more reliably. I also prefer a light Crave within the same class to the Inspire for hyzer flips. 150 class is great, add weight to dial back the turn.

Also curious! I'd questioned how added dome might affect a Proxy earlier on some thread. Guess I'll know soon enough.

FWIW, I found the same with my Watermelon Envy's. Tiny dome, little more...
