I also am not in love as much as I thought I would be with my tangent so far. After all the hype I was expecting to fall in love with this disc but it just doesn't behave for me the way others have stated. I'll be the first to admit this is probably because of my form/technique rather than the disc itself. I've had a few really sweet long sweep anhyzers with it in the last few rounds but I don't find it as easy to control as I thought. However I'm not gonna give up on it yet.

Since my Proton Vector is a blank, it's hard for me to know if it's a first run or not, but mine is overstable. Fades out of any anny, powered down a little, it starts fading real quick...it's what I was looking for.

Just got in N Shock (2nd run,) N Vector, and N Ion (black), looking to try them after "work."

The one thing I'd say is don't look for big, line-burning shots from the tangent (if that makes sense). In my experience its a really, really slow and deliberate shot-making disc. It's not going to get there quickly but it sure is going to get there soundly and accurately if thrown appropriately.

It's like when it leaves your hand it says "Here's my line. Watch me fly."

Since your Proton Vector is a blank, it cannot be a first run.

Here's what I was wondering. I've seen videos where pros explain how more dome on a disc generally makes it more understable due to the increased air friction. However, on here, I've heard tons of people saying their domey MVP discs act more overstable. I know PLH makes a bigger difference than domeyness, but anyone have an idea about this contradiction in the disc golf community?

Perhaps the dome raises the PLH?

There may not be a contradiction. Flatness and dominess affect different makes and models of discs differently. With MVP in particular, dome tends to make them stable. I know that flat-topping different Innova discs has made them more stable (in my experience).

I agree with this 100%, especially the emboldened part. I'm really digging mine. It's the most interesting new disc I've thrown in a good while, possibly ever.

Its more valuable to an experienced thrower in my opinion because it goes on any line you put it on. So if you can't control the line your putting a disc on your not going to be able to control a neutral disc well
