I agree hyzer is the angle whenever, not just at release. Of course, I have an acute feeling that all this talk of angles is just obtuse. Right?

When Axiom has a bigger line up or if Innova releases more overmolds, you could code for stability by rim colour and speed by flight plate colour (or vice-versa).
