Proto Prism Insanity
 
Good Day, All:

I received an all-Proton Insanity proto ("Prism" plastic) the other day. I enjoy the regular Proton Insanity very much. Suffice it to say, I paid more than I should have for this Prism version.

I was incredibly disappointed. It is domey, incredibly understable, and awkward in hand. Think like -4 turn rating... Compared to the Plasma, Neutron, and Proton versions of the disc (all board-flat and neutral), this is like a totally different mold.

I am NOT writing this post to complain. I am writing it to ask if others who received the "Queen" stamp or the proto stamp had similar experiences.

I am staying loyal to my other Insanity discs; however, this pretty pink disc is heading to a new owner (with a FULL disclosure of my experiences).

Thanks all!

Is the flight plate sparkle proton? Sometimes those get rather domey when cooling...

Itís all one-color without sparkles. I didnít know that the sparkle Proton can cool strangely. I have one Insanity thatsís sparkle and itís even flatter than the two Neutrons and one Plasma I own (like I said, I otherwise love this mold).

The disc itself looks fantastic. It just lacks the flight characteristics of my other Insanities.

The Proton rim seems sturdier and it is clear that MVP had to alter how they molded the plate and rim. Perhaps theyíll tinker before full release...

It just surprised me (i.e., profile and stability) compared to all of the other Insanities I have, which are among the flattest-topped drivers I have experienced.

Thanks

Not all sparkles are jiffy popped. Ive noticed it a few times here and there and especially some of the newer discs like the Trace. One of the local shops had a stack of sparkle Traces and all of them looked like "Life under the Dome".

That was quite funny! "Life under the dome."

yeah they were all CHUD - haha which is funny why people went nuts for them - they didn't even look good - idk - - one of the guys posted that they were way more US than the production ones would be - once I saw that I knew to keep away.

Sucks dude - im not paying more than 30 for 1 disc-----ever. It's just plastic and not worth it

Well, I got some of my investment back. I hope the new owner enjoys it...I actually just copied my OP here, so they knew precisely what to expect.

Someone over at r/discgolf stated that he heard from an MVP employee that our suspicions concerning stability are correct. Good Ďole Internet ďI heard from a guy who got word from the owners of MVPís guinea pig that they...blah blah blah.Ē

Theyíll get it right...
