This has been exactly my experience with the Theory. Not quite point and shoot (except for low-powered approaches), but more like "point slightly left of the target and shoot." I think of it as a gun...

I could see the Hatchet being very useful for a lefty. My usual course has a good mix of "lefty holes" so as a righty I use the Hatchet frequently.

Insanity, eh? If the disc flies the way I hope,...

Sorta. I threw a 157 Tesla a few times without warming up properly on a cold, windy day. Not really a fair tryout. Initial impression: Tesla seems like a very sweet disc for someone who throws...

I throw similar distance so I appreciate your comparison, thank you. Sounds like the Inertia, and/or the next-more-stable Axiom DD is what I am looking for.



Love the Hatchet, looking for a...

Thank you for the comparison.

You are right - "longer Valk" is probably a misnomer. Valks do need some height to get their distance, though, and there are many ceiling-limited holes that I can...

Yes, I prefer around 160 for distance drivers and 166 for fairways. I used to throw all 150s for drivers so I am pretty comfortable with lighter discs.



Impulse is a possibility but I am set...

Spring 2015 seems like a long way away. I really want to throw every 2.0 cm Axion/MVP driver more understable than the Tesla until I find my perfect distance driver(s). Major kudos to MVP / Axiom for...

You sir, need to find some trees.:) Preferably lots of them, with gaps in between that seem ridiculously small. With practice, those gaps will seem to get bigger and bigger.

Thanks, BroD, much appreciated. I used to have a bag full of understable discs and hyzer-flipped everything, but now I am getting more comfortable with flat and flex shots.

Sounds pretty similar to my typical minimal bag - Clutch, Clutch, Truth, Hatchet, FD, Teebird, Tern. I expect to work some MVP/Axiom into that mix pretty soon.

Thank you, I appreciate the hands-on review. The flight sounds similar to a VIP Stag in the low 160s, with maybe a bit more HSS.



I like the sound of that! If the Clash does what I hope (a hint...

I have always liked the idea of an Eagle – reliable fade, works curved lines – more than the reality. For me, Eagles never wanted to “go”. In contrast, I have always clicked with Teebirds once the...

Local doubles gives two options: 1) Pay once, get a mulligan per hole; 2) Pay twice, get two throws per lie. The better players love the second option.
