Yep. I was throwing 3 of them off a tee and each time i wanted the line the disc worked. Slow hyzer, Flat lazer straight and slow right turn... it was almost like it knew what i was thinking lol very impressed with this mid the more and more i use it.

at this point id almost rather see a lid like disc if that was going to be the case b/c like you said a beat tangent is going to be up there with the best of US mids and mine are getting better every round. A touch disc would be nice b/c Ions anodes and the tangent all still need some good speed to hold a anny or put on that line. A beaded deep super glidey anode/tangent kind of disc would be great or a truly understable fairway driver as well before a actual US mid like a stingray or something.

After a few months I'm still learning my tangent but I've come to the conclusion that the big difference between it and my Axis for me is it's a lot slower than my Axis and therefore a lot easier to control. The more beat in it gets the better it gets but it's not there yet.

Last week I had a 200 foot up shot up a slight hill and I had to anhyzer it slightly around some trees. Three-quarters of the way through the throw I got a ton of awwws and wows from my group. Then it bailed out on me at the end. We all thought it was going to hit chains, it just didn't hold the line.

I think the disc is awesome, it just has some user errors to work out.

dear tangent:

i love you.

pulled the tangent back in the back after using the comet for a while. the bead has been messing with me, though. i have to agree with those of you that say this flies like a slightly faster putter/slower mid. it's been amazing for standstill driving off the tee. in the summer i drive with putters a lot since runups are easier - now i've been discing up to the tangent. bye-bye, comet. you'll always be great in my book.

I feel you. It responds so well to different angles and speeds. Its a versatile mid for sure.

I still have my original eclipse proton in the bag and it's only gotten better. I love laser beam hyzer flips with it. It was funny today because I threw one of those hyzer flips off the pad and outshot the basket about 265' away by 10' or so. Anyways he asks me what I threw and I told him a tangent and he pulls out a proton green tangent and was super surprised. He wasn't getting much distance until I gave him a brief explanation of snap and it's necessity when throwing MVP. After that he was hitting some nice lines, but he's also much more forehand dominant with a touch of OAT, which the tangent won't respond to. The tangent is so versatile for newer and more advanced players which is one of the biggest reasons it's so great.

How long did it take you guys until your tangents turned genuinely understable?

the round after I rubbed the top of the flight plate on some tees and bottom as well with small rocks inside shaking it. I cant stand the gloss on neutron and am no longer bagging a proton one so no help there but took a while for my very first proton to really get workable and believe that's just due to it being a slight faster plastic overall like champ vs star (which neutron is much more comparable to once broken-in like the nice gummy star that slowly wears similar to a vibram but even added durability)

mk. i found a proton with a majorly high PLH compared to all the others in the store and a little more dome too. maybe i'll take my older no-stamp proton to the woodshed.
