I use power grip and to me grip is nice with MVP mids (Protons, Neutrons are on way even with damp ones (i.e. wet grass and I did not carry towel with me). However with fan grip, I would want dry ones to throw. I have not throw Rocs in long time but I believe you can throw MVP mids bit further than Roc, esp Axis. Testers here commented about flat Neutron Vector being faster/glider so it would be good one to have.

Honestly I've always struggled with the feel of premium plastic midranges but am again intrigued by MVP. I wonder if a lighter proton Axis or Vector would give me what I'm looking for in distance if the grip is nice. For reference I can get Rocs out around 280'.
I'm uncertain as to why, but all my early stiffer proton(FR Vector, FR Axis, first clear Ions) discs are slicker than new proton, and much slicker than Neutron. Maybe it's because they are a little stiffer? I'm not sure, but I think you would like Neutron, especially compared to that early proton. Quite honestly, get a lighter red neutron Vector...If it doesn't work for you I will buy it or trade you something for it.

Just purchased my first MVP disc ever! Neutron Anode, orange, 173g. Should get here in the next few days. Can't wait to try it out and see how it flys! Oh, and from all the great reviews I've been seeing on here, I thought I would pre-order a Volt while I was at it too

Sweet, now I know who to go to if I don't like mine.

Got a 171 Red Vector and a 174 White Axis headed my way. Here's hoping the weather clears up before they get here. I may be just a little excited.

Some brief thoughts...

N Axis - The moderate dome gives these a true 0 for high speed stability. Like discspeed noticed, I saw increased glide with no increased rate of turning over. Thrown with the tiniest bit of hyzer they will hold it the entire flight regardless of power. They hold a very beautiful anhyzer and hang in the air an impressive amount of time. Some straightish mids tend to want to drop out of the air a bit quick when thrown anny in my experience but the Axis doesn't. On a max power rip they flew straight 90% or so of the flight then gently faded as they slowed down. Ripped em in the 375-400' range consistently in mild winds with no accidental turnovers, and like I stated earlier if I threw them that hard with a bit of hyzer, they held it.

N Vector. The 173 N Vector, which is domier than the 173 P eclipse Vector I had bagged, exhibits similar glide but fades sooner. The heavier N Vector (176 sticker weight) is a touch beefier but the difference isn't huge. Both fade earlier and further laterally the the pancake flat P Vectors I've been throwing lately. The neat thing is though they have such good hang time that despite their overstable flight path they still get good D. When I was trying max d golf line throws with them and the Axis I'd toss the latter with a pinch of hyzer and the Vectors flat, and while the Vectors started fading earlier around 75-80% of their flight there was only 5' or so distance difference. These have a flight line similar to domier first run Vectors but with superior glide.

I was mostly driving with them but I threw about 20 fh approach shots with them and they're great. Vectors will hold the hyzer angle the entire way and the Axis would flatten out a bit from a hyzer flick and glide straighter for longer, then come back gently at the end.

All things considered I am quite impressed with MVP's ability to make a great disc even better. Both discs fly exactly how I want the respective molds to fly, have superb grip and are very easy to spot with their bright colors.

Great write-up Mike. When I saw your post I was hoping for a video to cure me of my boredom at work.

Anybody had any Neutron long enough to tell its wear-in rate, particularly compared to the Proton?

They've only been out for a little more than a month, I'm going to assume that there hasn't been enough time. Especially that it's only been putters so far. Give it a couple months with the mids and we'll have a better feeling for how they break in.
