those of you replacing the axis with the tangent, what exactly does the tangent do better?

wouldn't a light neutron tangent and a heavier axis fill the straight stable and slightly understable roles better?

That's because there are a lot of guys who are full of themselves on here.

Iv'e been wondering the same. The pink 174 I have is pretty stable. Would a lighter Neutron or a Proton be more understable?

The best bet is to check out Mike C on that question...though he's in the like top 1-2% in terms of power.

I've found that, at least with some of the MVP molds, the usual assumptions about stability and lighter/heavier weights don't necessarily apply the same as with other discs...which is kinda wierd.

I remember Mike C saying, when the Volt was released, that he was getting more HS turn out of the heavier Volt he was throwing...but obviously that was a while back.

Hmmm, well I suppose I could always just season the one I have. Thanks though!

Bumping for a sweet disc. I bought an eclipse tangent yesterday and it was really fun to throw. It felt just slightly understable to me (barely). With slight hyzer flip I would watch it flip slightly past flat and just hold it all the way down for a very straight shot. This disc can easy do many shots.

Tangent and Buzzz are officially my favorite mids.

I've thrown the Tangent in all the plastics and in various weights. Overall the heavier Neutron Tangents are the most stable. Eclipse seems to be the most understable. Lighter weights are the most understable too. My 171 Eclipse tangent is the most understable.

Part of this could be due to a little more dome which adds glide. Gives it some more time to turn.
