Ditto. I enjoyed the Warship some - very long for a mid - but found the HSS somewhat sensitive to accidental turn-overs. I now bag three mids (Theory/Axis/Tensor), down from 5, but use them only...

I agree with this analysis. As pointed out, I sometimes bag both Suspect and Zone for their differences, but the Zone is the key piece. If you're an all Trilogy guy, at least you have something...

Perhaps the most informed sounding response - your feeling is that Gyro does affect propensity roll, but only at a certain high speed. This is also what is advertised by MVP on their flight charts...

He seemed to suggest he grabbed some plastic from the box, tried it out and that it stuck, I thought.

That said, Theory is not a push over HSS wise, nothing like a Tursas, for example. It's a...

Definitely upshot to a favorable angle, that's my first play. But, when I'm attempting a long putt on a slope, I'm not a fool to think I'll make all of my shots - so I wondered if/how other players...

MVP Gyro and throwing/putting on slopes.

So, a friend and fellow DG'er with whom I regularly play has a theory that due to Gyro, MVP/Axiom discs have a penchant to roll more often than non-gyro discs when landing on a slope.

All...

Mine is a little bit tricky to get discs in and out of, but not too much that it bothers me. I felt that was the price of admission so that they never fall out. I've never adjusted mine so I've...

I can turn my bag upside down and the discs don't come out. The metal frame is just tight enough to make it simple to turn a disc in, but impossible for it to fall out. I wonder if your frame is...

Depends if you need it to roll in a specific way. Discs follow a similar line on the ground as they do in the air. Heavier weight discs are less prone to being knocked around by pebbles and grass...

I have a 144 F Photon that turns a little more than my 166 Wave but fights outs harder as it slows. 153 Photon turns a little less than the Wave, 163 a little less again, but can still be shaped. I...

I thought that too. After the Inspire, supposedly the most US of the class, I felt maybe 'flippy' wasn't in the cards.

Wave was marketed as a longer Inertia, a good description. Sometimes I think it turns a bit more than that, but then I'll put one out there that doesn't turn as much as I wanted. I've seen some...

Yeah, just to add to the data, its a 170 class of mine that's the softest. Medium blue with a pink rim. I know MVP/Axiom has a lot on their plates, but I think Soft and Super Soft has been a proven...

Yes, yes they can and will. Even the mighty Gyro cannot overcome the effect of a super light disc in a high wind. I put a lot of trust in my 144 at first, but had an extreme wind burn on a sky anny...

No need to wait, try a 150 class. It will fly like a worn in 160, and a 140 like a worn in 150. Nice to have the range of options and predicable performance.

I'm in the 350-75 range.

I carry 18 discs in all - 6 putters, 3 mids, 4 fairway and 5 DDs. I find the DDs, while used least are more prone to proper disc selection, hence the number. I have two...
