My Tangent as of now is my powered straight shooter so I keep one of these in the bag.

Latitude 64 Gold Line Fuse or a Discraft X Comet.

These 2 always work for me.

I'm slowly seasoning an ESP Comet too. I think that one will work good too once seasoned.

I was using a nicely seasoned x comet. It's a great disc but wasn't quite consistent enough for the tight woods around here. Would be a good choice. I was never completely sold on how the rim felt.

I picked up a VIP Tursas a couple weeks ago. The plastic is great and I really like how the rim feels. Turns nicely for me and has tons of glide.

A buddy of mine throws a squall from DGA and it works very well for him. Might be worth a shot.

I have an RGL and a sparkle Opto Fuse, they both turn right right out of the box. Anything from a slight hyzer for a late turn to an anny that will tombstone right. It is a really intuitive disc, and it can also handle some good power without wanting to burn.

count me in for the fuse as well.

it will tell you if your form sucks, but not as much as the comet.

I've got a beat to death life Gateway S Warrior that's been in the bag for about 3 1/2 years. If I lose it, I'll probably try to speed season a DX Roc.

I also don't find my Tangents to really be understable. Actually my oldest one has gotten a little warped from sitting in my bag, and seems to have a little more fade than it initially did. Or maybe I'm just crazy.

So I recently lost my TP Tursas... I'm considering a Proton Tangent as a replacement. Is this a good replacement? It seems that the Tangent is not as understable.

the tangent is very neutral, very slight turn but comes back a little too.. its a disc for shaping ANY line.

I know people here are in love with this disc so I figured I'd check it out. Went to the store today and they didn't have any Tursases so I was wondering what to go with instead. Although I'll probably end up getting another Tursas sometime anyway, I have been interested in trying different discs. I want to throw a Tangent

I have both in my bag. I use the Tursas for anny's of any size and the Tangent for flipped flat sub-300' straight lines. Tangent can turn too, but I find the straight lines are its forte and I also find the Tursas longer, thus I use the Tangent more than Tursas for fairway shots.

The GOOD news - My new orange 171 Proton Tangent came in the mail yesterday.

The BAD news - I pulled/tweaked a muscle in my hip, lower back area and probably shouldn't throw.

(Maybe I'll try to sneak in a few arm throws)

PS. Just to rub it in my new Neutron Volt should arrive today.
