i have a super flat (i mean flat as a CE Eagle) white rim green vector and it flies more overstable than my other 6 vectors

Disc to disc differing weight distribution? Honestly I believe that the domier (more air friction) a disc is the more overstable it will be. MVP=more or less unknown in my hands. Perhaps the gyroscopity of the rim adds another variable.

All my domey MVP discs are more OS than the flatter ones, even after breaking them in some.

I like it because I have a worn flat Axis for zero fade shots, mild turnovers, anhyzers that hold the entire flight etc and a domey one for a straight with mild fade flight, slight headwinds etc.

I also own discs that prove this rule by their exception.

I'm guessing you've never thrown a Flick, flat top Pred, or flat top Firebird before.

Pred, no. The other two, yes (Esp150 and an 11x). Exceptions proving the rule. also id guess that the weight distribution of these discs is the reason for their stability.

"The process of transferring mass away from the axis of rotation increases the discís moment of inertia at parabolic proportions."


Anyhow, I wouldn't mind a moment of inertia boost on my drivers so I can't wait to hold a Volt!
I recently got my eclipse axis with the dgcr stamp. I haven't got to throw it much yet due to some back issues. The little bit I did throw, I flipped about half of them over. But I'm really not very good yet, so it's very likely me. I've got a vector and an anode on the way, so I'll give them a shot. I probably wouldn't have ever tried mvp if it weren't for dgcr.

gonna give the axis and vector a better longer look this time to see how they do after cleaning up my form and adding some distance. Looking forward to going out with my mvp mid line up this week and seeing once again what the hype is all about. its actually like i am throwing new discs again because I feel that my game is in a better place now. that is all.

Forgive if it's been asked/answered, but is white going to be an option for Neutron plastic? I like my putters to be white, and I'd love to get some white Anodes to go with my stormtrooper Ions.

Also, I really like the simple stamp for the Neutron line. Looks more "professional", if you will.

They've only said bright fluorescent colors, nothing specific, but I'm sure they'll do white also. They know how much people loved to dye on the opaque proton.
