I've never pre-ordered a disc. Until now. Whether it makes the bag or not, I have faith that this disc will be worth throwing Stoked!

This, this and more this. I love my Fuse for turnovers in no wind, and straight shots in a tailwind. So i don't see this kicking my Fuse out. But where is the OS plastic from MVP. Vector was a tick OS, but I want Wasp/Drone OS

Last time I checked, a bunch of people were clamoring for an understable mid from MVP. Now that they are releasing one, there is a bunch of complaining? I really don't get it.

MVP - or any company - doesn't make discs just for us. They have a much larger market to cater to, and an understable, easy to throw mid that looks cool will probably broaden their customer base more than an OS utility meathook mid. It's business, people.

That's what I'm hoping for!!

I wonder where on the spectrum of understability it will fall. Sounds like a fun mid, when it comes out Ill throw it alongside meteor and coyote, see how she does.

I'm going to guess it'll be more like a cryztal meteor than the ESP meteor. But I'd hope it's more like the ESP cause the cryztal's were very stable in comparison.

Sweet,"Tangent" is my video game moniker for Windows. I'm special. Forget you.

I'll be excited if this will knock out the Comet.

I have a First Run Eclipse Orange Axis that i can throw flat and turns, then holds a turn all the way to the end.. i have had it forever and its seasoned, but even when it was new i was able to put it on anny lines and it would ride it 90% and then flatten out nice at the end and just stick right where i wanted without rolls/skips.

I do however have some new Axis Neutron that is more overstable and fades out of anny lines quickly, but the new Orange Eclipse Axis i just got is holding dead straight lines with ease and almost no fade. I still use my old one for anny lines, but the new eclipse is sexy! I dont know why, but the Orange Eclipse plastic just works best for me.

This Tangent looks to have a slight bead, but it bevels off right away.. if anything this is GREAT because it will help prevent roll aways and skips Looks to be a great addition, i will buy a good stack of these when they come out.

I used to think along the similar lines. I have a noodle arm, my os mid is a TI wasp. I started using the wasp for anny lines, and they hold. Plus I like the late dependable fade it has when thrown flat. I threw my only ace on an anny line with my wasp.

I was playing in low to mid 20 mph winds yesterday, I was using my TI wasp to handle the headwinds on holes that I usually use my putter on. The wasp is os for me, and worked out perfectly.
