I'm sorry if you thought my suggestion was "stupid".
Good luck and good day!

Yes, that is stupid. You should buy 10 of each, then sell the ones you don't like.

they are the same.

tangents fly like tangents. Proton plastic is a little more durable in the long-run and stays glossy longer thus maybe being a little faster like champ vs star plastics so some probably get a little extra LSS out of the proton if they are not getting a lot of spin on the disc. I have thrown a ton of tangents and you really just need to go by what you like for color/feel.

I have had a flat top tangent but it domed back up after use and it was a little less HSS than other I have thrown but not been able to find another flat one and flattening the backup I have didn't work.

ime with tangents, plastic does not matter. it is all about dome for there stability. my proton beat in much quicker than my neutron(perhaps the proton started off with less dome though). i threw my white N for 3 months before i re-doomed it. took my proton about 3 weeks. i wouldnt say i had any increase or decrease in my rate of play during those periods either.

Lol, how'd you know that I don't have a local store? If I had, then I would have done it already.

Sure, if I was rich.

Both plastics fly very similar to one another, can't go wrong either way. I think long term Neutron seasons to feel a touch grippier and proton wears a bit slower, but the differences are very minimal.

i think it's the same as any disc. it's hard for me to read PLH on these for me, though. my neutron is flat and light, it also has more turn. *shrug* there are variances, and that's that. while MVP hasn't mixed and matched different tops/bottoms of discs, they are not 100% perfect.

^my flat one was like that when brand new but domed up :/ still miss that easy peasy point and shoot that the "normal" tangents don't quite power down the same but also prefer them overall and the difference is really very minimal only in the HSS.

Tangent saved my ass today. I felt like I was determined not to win my league today. After going -4 through 10 holes with 2 bogeys, I fell apart and dropped to +1 somehow. It could have been so much worse. I started shanking drives, hitting trees 30 feet in front of me and sinking 30-40 foot putts off recovery shots to avoid an even worse score. Parked the last hole with the tangent to tie the leader and scramble back to even. then parked the playoff hole with the tangent to win it. Thank you tangent!

I had a 172 orange proton tangent for a few months and didn't click with it. So, I got a white 169 in Neutron plastic and this is what I was hoping for. I can see what all the fuss is about now. It is so easy to throw straight.

When I practice 150-200 upshots at the basket with all my mids the Tangent is almost always the closest one to the pin. It's just easy to throw. Point and shoot.

While there may be no difference to some I loved Neutron plastic over proton in every single mold where I've compared the two. The only proton I like better is the soft proton eclipse Ion.

The proton stuff is good but always feels very stiff to me. More like the older Champion stuff. Neutron feels more like Star (which I like too) so it may be just a personal preference thing.
