The one neutron atom I had was pretty solid, borderline envy with a touch more turn and touch less fade, also a touch less glide. Hit a lot of cage. Think "Envy SS" haha.

I have been pleased with my new cosmic electron soft envy, no puddling so far and a nice touch more firmness than my old soft, I know they changed the electron blend. (A few times)

Had a good round with my heavy eclipse envy last night vs eclipse reactor. I'm warming up to the reactor a bit. The envy has a touch less fade than many of my others in premium plastic. Even with the extra weight (max vs 165)

The hex is definitely deserving of all the praise itís been receiving but the reactor is still a **** fine mid alsoÖespecially the glows.

Iíve been rolling with hex, neutron reactor, glow reactor, and either pyro or deflector depending on the course. Neutron reactor doesnít get used a ton and could probably get dropped though. Not many shots where I want more fade than a hex but less than the glow reactor.

Still digging the proxy over the envy, not that itís a bad disc, just really digging my plasma proxy. Envy for me is like that neutron reactor. If I need more fade than the proxy Iíll just throw a zone.

I agree about the Glow Reactors they are just $$$. I dont think I have had a bad tee shot with mine since I have added it to the bag. Even when my shot doesn't hit my intended line it always seems to find its way to a safe landing spot. I currently pair it with a Runway and have never had a stronger mid combo.

The Reactor is in my glow bag, but it’s the Pyro, Hex and Theory in the main bag (and an Alias).

2 Reactors, 2 Hexes, and a Pyro (using it more like I think most folks would use a Zone?) in the midrange complement here.

To test out the Hex I have been carrying two of them as my only midranges. Love love love the Hex.

I will probably pair a Hex with a Star Wombat3. The two should handle all of my midrange needs. I expect Hex to cover the majority of BH and FH duties, with Wombat3 when I need a mid to flip up or drift right.

I had previously tried the Reactor. Darn good disc, but I'm not sure whether I have a need for an overstable mid since I mostly play in the woods.

Eclipse Reactor came in today, haven’t really got a chance to throw it yet other than a couple of slow hyzers in the back yard.

I will say, it looks like the 2.0 eclipse is elite glow. It sat in the shade outside and in the full light of my office you could still see the glow. In the dark it’s probably super bright.

Interesting to hear a different approach as the Hex feels to me like a perfectly balanced right bender while the Reactor will run dead straight for a fair bit before finishing left in a present but not super-hooky way for me. Right now, I trust it a little more in the woods than the Hex, but I could see an evolution once I get a better handle on it. The Hex seems very aware of the release angle and is as likely to surprise as delight me.

But when it's right (or more accurately when I'm right) I think it's a fantastic tool.

In the recent AMA at Maple Hill James Conrad said the next disc (or the following) in the JC line would be a fairway driver, 8 speedish. Anyone have any info?

I'm guessing something like a Volt but not as chunky
