Right on. Thanks for the info I feel kinda bad since my Tursas was barely used and I liked him quite a bit. Maybe I can use both. I think eventually I will just collect all the discs because they are like Pokemon. Gotta catch 'em all!

I played my first ever one disc round earlier this week and chose to use the Tangent for it (3 simultaneous 1 disc rounds, pitting my neutron, proton, and eclipse Tangents against each other), and I must say it's the most fun I've had in a long time, plus, 2 of the 3 were tied for my best ever rounds on the course!

My Tangents sucked today.. Why? Because I was trying to drive with them through all the wooded holes. I would usually tee off with a Buzzz but wanted to give it some shots. Not liking it through tight spaces. So... Practice makes perfect

It's not the disc. It's you. I've found with MVP the discs are actually too accurate. Meaning that any OAT or errors in your throwing shows up in your throw but just the same you can get deadly accuracy with them.

It takes a decent amount of practice and time to adjust but I'm becoming a better golfer for it. Before I got my Axis I never realized how much I roll my wrist when I throw. Now, I'm getting better at not doing that and getting better throws all around.

I know haha. I explained that in my statement. Check me tone man, the smile at the end should have been a hint..

Anyways, yes you are correct. Dirt on these discs aren't good either though. My complaint is still mostly the plastic, it's nice but just the little stuff that is offered in ESP, ESP Flx, Pro, GL, etc.. MVP doesn't offer that magnificent grip.

well, i saw a beeee-yootiful no-stamp so i had to pick it up.

it probably won't have a place in the bag because i've got an axis, a vector, a breaker and a fuse. i've got my lines covered, but dang...i wanna throw it because it's so good looking. great straight shooter.

My Tangent was threatened by the new Atlas and came out triumphant! Tangent FTW! Only issue I ever have with tangents is the slick surface on the flight plate...to deal with that I lick my thumb before throwing

same concept as licking your finger to turn the page of a book. may seem strange but fact is: if my hands are super dry or especially if I just used a dirtbag, my thumb will slide around on the top of that flight plate, disc will pop out early, and I will get frustrated...a very small amount of saliva makes it stick though, and all is well.
