I really dig the proton plastic!
There's no reason for them not to play around with LE type discs. I want a Soft Neutron Eclipse Axis.

I have a feeling Mike's sparkle shots aren't flying as far as usual....

I was just out in the warehouse throwing Nano catch with ZJ -- FUN FUN FUN. The Nano snaps real nice, has a little bit of an overstable flight. I was getting a consistent flex, very manageable, like a golf disc. I'm talking high round-the-corner steep anny pan-out shots. Easy to angle it a little and get a laserbeam flex.

The Tangent has the same diameter as the Drone at 21.5. So, I guess I'm wrong about the Tensor? It's not on the PDGA approved list yet.

The Zone is 21.1

The same is true for all stable discs.

Throw them with good form, straight and true, and they'll fly the same way.
^ I absolutely agree. For me I have a tendency to overthrow when I attempt a lower line with the Axis, which often leads to OAT I know it's me, but I just haven't really clicked with it yet...

I have to ask based on my other post....Why would you be afraid of a Drone or a Zone?? These two discs have to be some of the best overstable discs ever made by any disc manufacturer. They have been so money for so many players over the years including myself.

Yeah I have to agree with Joner. This disc could be one of those discs that a lot of players build OS portion of their bag around. I can't wait to beat one in.......

You know this might not mean much but if you compare the disc profile of the Tensor to the Wasp, Hornet, and Drone on Discraft's website, it is the closest to a Hornet's profile. I really don't think it will be as stable as a Drone.

What do you say testers??

I think for now it's because they are focused on new molds.
