The lightweight neutron vectors have been described as the fastest and most workable.

I also remember having a bit of OAT issue early the first day when I threw the Axis (BH). After just one round, I had gotten it dialed in and got the great straight flights out of it. The Vector on the other hand, I had it down from the first throw. Maybe getting an Axis first helped with that though.
Makes sense... I'll keep at it. It's one of my only glow discs at the moment so I'll likely get a lot of use out of it this winter!

Out of the Vectors in my collection the Protons are all around more overstable. The Neutrons are faster, take less power to hold their line, and fade later. The Neutrons also seem much flatter in general. I know there are flat protons, but moderately domey seems to be the norm. The Neutrons on the other hand seem primarily flat. The lighter flat Neutron Vectors have a surprising about of glide and are my personal favs for most conditions. The one in my bag is fire-orange and 174.

The neutron vectors are $$$

I was just about as impressed with them as I was with the Volt

The neutron was more roc, whole the early protons were more sentinel or hornet

Yeah, I can't believe how much more usable those Neutron Vectors are out of the box. The lighter ones really boom as well...It's like Sentinel speed with Roc stability...In fact I've been pulling some shots off that I don't remember executing since I had an old seasoned yellow Q-sent in my bag (anhyzer shots that hold their line for half the flight and then come all the way back out). It's going to be really nice to have a Proton on the bookend of stability and a couple of Neutrons of different stabilities alongside it.

If you have not grabbed one of the yellow or red 176 flat N Axis you absolutely must...Really special mid for all things line holding.

Zach, I plan on hitting DN this weekend to try out just that disc. ....and the Volt. Hope you have some lighter N Vectors in the shop.

Hope we have them for ya. Not sure there is anything under low 170s. I'll be doing my best out at Players Cup, so it's not my fault if we are out haha

No worries. 172 was what I was after anyway. Just want to fling one to be completely sure I will like it. Already pretty sure I will.

Tear em up at the PC.
