I bought a Tangent on bikinjack's recommendation. He should be like EF Hutton. When he speaks, you should listen. He brags on few if any discs, from any manufacturer.

All that being said I threw the Tangent for 1 round on a course with lots of 220-300' holes. To me it flies and feels just like a 168-172 GL Core or 176-180 Opto Fuse. My Tangent is a 177. It is nice, but after 1 round I would not call it ground breaking. It isn't as flippy as a light GL Fuse or handle the turnovers or anny's as well, and it does the straight tunnel thing just like a Core. I'll throw it some more, and see what it really does for me long term, but right now seems like just another solid edition to the mid market. Not great, but as good as a lot of other discs out there. If I had to use it rigth now I could use it for my Core shots, but would have to give up all my Cores to justify it. I'll just give it more time, and see if and where it fits.

I'm really starting to enjoy throwing this disc. I think it may even pay for itself if I can manage to actually hit an ace with it. I've had a couple really good runs just 18-24" high and I've skipped off the top of a basket an bounced off the side. But that's not what makes me like this disc, what I like is that it seems to do exactly what you tell it, for better or worse.

To add to the Tangent vs. Comet discussion, I've got an ESP Comet I could take out for some field tests. I'm not the gold standard when it comes to form, but a Comet was my first mid and filled the exact roll the Tangent is now filling, uber straight with very little fade and anny lines.

Got a Tangent a month or so ago. So far I have not loved it like I did my Axis and Vector. To some extent, I am having the same problem that I have with my Z Comet: it is hard to throw straight because it wants to track a fair amount to the right (RHBH). I have started to find it useful for annys, but that is a skill that I am developing now. I also am finding it to be a good disc for windy days, which is why I first got the Vector and Axis. Since windy days are going to be more frequent now that I am further down in the plains now (KC), I will definitely keep working with the Tangent (and the Axis and Vector), though I find that the Blowfly II has taken over at least 2/3 of my approach shots (and putting). My MVP mids are now mostly for shots in the 225' to 275' range, unless the wind is pretty bad.

Alhough I have a noodle arm, I have been told a number of times by other players that I have good snap. I'm guessing that this is why I get good use out of MVP's discs, and why my understable discs like to track right (or left when RHFH) a lot?

Just like the comet than, it will be a good disc to teach you to throw it smooth and straight if you take some time with either.

i can get some nice 270-315 ft laser straight shots with my tangents, if i really try to put some power on it.. it will turn to the right. Try a proton tangent, they a bit more stable than neutron imo.

Does the neutron become more understable over time because mine is a Buzzz. As is the Eclipse.. Only regular Proton is initially understable.

I don't know bout that. My axis flies more like a buzz though axis is more oat sensitive. I have three N tangents and they all require a ill bit more touch than a buzz, will hold straight lines and anny's easier, and are more oat sensitive.

neutrons started out like my eclipse, but they beat in real fast to have turn, and now they stay the same after initial couple week break in.. the eclipse still hasn't changed though, it has more HSS and LSS Fade

might have something to do with the neutrons i have being board flat and the eclipse has a very slight dome to it.

you want a tangent that turns a little? make it board flat its awesome

Yeah, the Eclipse I have has a slight dome.. As does the Proton.. Neutron is pretty flat.
