Between the Volt, Shock, and Axis that I already planned to buy this spring, and now the Tangent, MVP is going to be getting WAY to much of my money! Oh well, could be worse.

Question for all the understable mid throwers (which appears to be everyone on this thread but me)

Do you find yourself hyzer-flipping your US mids more, putting them on a true anny line, or releasing them flat to let them get that good solid turn to the right? I wonder, because as I said before I don't throw much US stuff, certainly no US mids. My Axis was pretty US and I used it for anny lines pretty exclusively. If I need a tight, low, right hand turn I'll flick the Pig or my Krait if I need some good distance. Also have been using the Shock for that shot as well.

I don't think I've ever hyzerflipped a mid for a true golf shot, I've just done it messing around doing field work or whatever. Perhaps the Tangent will be a hyzer flip machine like my Pures or Patriot? That's the only shot I could see using this for...a distance between my Patriot and Pure. Sorry for the ramble, but I'm a dyed-in-the-wool MVP Fanboy and I guess I'm just searching for a reason to get this bad boy...

I most always flip US discs even for turn-overs because otherwise the turn can be too soon or quick and really only useful to get out of trouble or around trouble with touch shots releasing an US disc with anhyzer angle. I also throw FH and not turn-overs where needed due to later fade etc... its really just about what works for your game and if there is a gap in your bag!

Well, some might say there's a gap in my bag due to my prevalence of OS and lack of stable/US discs, but I do allright for myself...

hyzer flipping a meteor makes about 30% of my throws during a game. I carry 3 meteors and can cover anything from 300ft S curves to a 75ft anyhyzer approach with the meteor. Hyzer flipping understable glidey mids is in my opinion the best way to get big distance down hill or in a tailwind. my home course starts with a 375ft slightly downhill hole and while others throw katanas, wraiths, and surge SS I tend to match thier throws with a humble 175g ESP Metoer.


I honestly don't see how the tangent could approve on the meteor in any way but I would love to be proved wrong.

I've got a couple pretty US Axes (well beat in) that I use for anything from straight to left to right shots, depending on the wind ofc. I'm much more comfortable/confident in hyzerflipping my flippy Axis than throwing my stable ones. I'm actually hoping the Tangent has just a touch of turn to it so it fits perfectly in between my Flippy and straight Axes.

Proton

I emailed them today and asked the exact question if they were going to be releasing the volt in proton plastic and they said yes they were but they were in the process of focusing on new releases and they would be focused on the creation of new disc before they start releasing proton and eclipes versions
