For the time being at least, I will have to say that my Tangent also seems more stable then I was hoping for. I have a 173g Neutron, white and board flat. It just wants to fly dead straight with the slightest fade at the end for me.

I don't have a ton of power, hit 300' non-consistantly, so I don't know if that may play a part. I was hoping it would knock the Comets out of the bag but I'm just there yet. For the time being it's without a doubt overlaping with my beloved Axis. Hoping it just needs to hit some more trees. It's not coming out of the bag, but neither is my nicely seasoned x Comet.

I've said it before, as have others, MVP discs don't break in that quickly or that easily. My Tangents aren't as understable as a Comet...more like a Buzzz SS really. But it's a great disc that almost always finishes to the right (RHBH) for me. The only time mine goes straight is when I really power it down.

But I have OAT issues, so maybe I'm not the best judge of it.

Just threw my proton tangent for the first time. I'm a max 300 ft guy, but I only get that when I power down and throw smooth. The biggest problem for me is turn and burn with anything understable. I threw a teebird that had only seasoned a few rounds and it turned and burned like it got shot out of the sky.

But the tangent? Oh tangent! I hit it with too much power, new it would burn, but it held the most beautiful and long (only 230 pr so, but long for me) anhyzer! I was blown away! I am still learning how to get it to hyzer flip consistently, but as long as I throw it smooth, it is a point and shoot monster!

I felt similarly about my 178 Neutron at first although I still liked it. Now as it's beating in (much faster for me than almost anyone else with a rocky gravel fairway home course) it holds a better slight turnover/anny shot. I also just picked up a 170 Proton Tangent and it fits that Comet-like role fantastically right out of the box. I'll have more to say after next weekend playing a tournament on wooded courses, but the Tangent may be my current favorite.

Just played a round and used my Tangent for most of my mid-range shots. This disc definitely has the most forward-penetrating fade of any disc I have thrown. Out with the Buzzz, in with the Tangent!

Yup same for me, I'm a 330' thrower and it's filling a spot in the bag just because it's new and fun. Great for me downhill but I'm still more comfortable with a Anode for the annys. The Tangent is filling more of a stable putter and touch FH disc for me. I really like it for one disc rounds but redundant with a full (mostly) MVP bag. I kinda hoped some of the Vancouver guys would be throwing them at the tourney this weekend so I could see what more arm can do with them but sadly they found it too new to bag too.

My lovely original N Tangent now rests with the gators and cottonmouths...It was one of those shots that was flying hard anny, brushed into a little foliage and got redirected dramatically into a hyzer orientation taking it far out into the lake. It wasn't a great shot, but the punishment did not fit the crime...
