Take it with a grain of salt though.

While I was rehabbing, I also decided to do some form work at home, just trying to get my left arm into my throw more to help with my rotation. So IDK if all that form work is really what did it or if the Fizzy Crave is just that good, but it felt like I was getting effortless distance, and was hitting distances I haven't hit since before I turned 40.


What weight is your Fission Crave?

My understanding of the point of fission plastic is that the lighter core distributes more of the disc weight to the rim yet Iíve seen some as high as 172g.

I prefer my Craves close to max weight (and all of mine are cosmic neutron) so Iím curious if I picked up a heavier fission if it would do anything magical for me.

I have been running Neutron Matrix, Electron Matrix, and Uplink as my mids. A deflector jumps in for 30mph winds which we have had a lot of, of late. I tried others but think that will be the mids for this year. The matrix in my grip just fits really well, both forehand and backhand.

Threw my new Jet some yesterday. Lost it right 8nto a light wind as one would expect with the -3. OTOH, I got no turn on a throw downwind when I normally get a bit from my other US stuff. Fun disc so far. Lots of glide. Not sure if I will bag it simply because of the courses I play. There just aren't any holes that require 11 speed discs. They are either Mac distance or much shorter tee shots. I don't see this one going as far as Terns, Waves Corvettes or Pharaohs.

Mine is a 164. I was hoping for slightly higher weight because, you are correct, the core can be much lighter, so more of the weight is in the rim.

For instance, (and these are made up guess numbers to illustrate the point) if a 150g Fizzy Crave had 80% of the weight in the rim, a 175g Fizzy Crave would have more like 95% of the weight in the rim, with the 160s falling somewhere in between. In a more traditional overmold, this isn't as dramatic of a difference, but still more of a difference than a solo mold disc.

Edit: forgot to add, from what I've heard from others and my own understanding, since the weight is already higher on the overmold, it takes a bit more to get it "up to speed". When it's spinning at peak speed, it should have normal gyroscopic tendencies, meaning, it should maintain the angle and direction of flight. Once the spin starts to slow, is when the fade happens, so that finishing fade depends on how fast it gets spinning to begin with, and how high it is when it starts to fade basically.

So my red Catalyst cut rolled into the great beyond this morning. I haven't seen any in Plasma below 170 grams, but checking here in case someone else is a little neurotic about the same kind of thing.

Thereís still good in the world. Got the text and am reunited. Threw the Fission Crave in the field yesterday. Good, but not an otherworldly bonding experience. Will continue to explore but ordered another Hokom Crave to replace the Servo thatís cycling into my sonís bag.

I was under the impression that the cores are all the same weight, in almost every mold? Like the weight diff between them boils down to how much weighting agent is added to the OM?

I'm pretty sure this used to be the case, but maybe something changed over my long layoff.

With my pretty good understanding of injection molding, that would probably be the easiest way way to go. Especially with how these discs are molded. Not saying I actually know, but it makes good sense to me.

So, threw the Jet a few times tonight. Even with my noodle arm and playing at 5000+ feet of elevation this thing is flippy.

I throw some flippy stuff but this thing is really flippy and finicky. I even had two throws that I started on hyzer that turned over into turned over into cut rollers.

Maybe good for people who max out at 250 or maybe someone looking for a roller disc but beyond that I donít think itís going to be useful to too many people.

I just picked up a neutron impulse (171), am at a lower elevation (800 or so) and hope that it isn't something that finnicky and crazy. Have you thrown an impulse that you can compare to the Jet? I plan on getting some work in with my impulse this weekend...

Sorry. Iíve never thrown an Impulse so I canít help you out.
