The Crave is perfect, long (for me) and very straight. Some of my more worn ones have HST, but fresh they are pretty straight. I would like a disc just like the Crave but with a good fade, like say 2 fade.

I've tried a Plasma Servo but fresh it had more HST than my Craves so the fade simply brought it back to straight. The turn into a bit of wind caused me to inadvertantly send it swimming with the fishes.

Does MVP / Axiom offer anything like this?
I'm not looking for FB OS just a slower Volt.
Kind of a 6.5 5 0 2 that really matches those numbers.

Maybe I need to wait for the Rhythm or one of the other new ones.

Any wisdom would be appreciated

The disc you may have wanted is the Switch but it's Oop.

Hey how heavy are you throwing? I'm down to about 300' these days, I'm really enjoying my 165 ish fission Volt.. But if thats not for you, may I suggest something like a 155 fission tesla?

My 164 fission tesla is beefy straight for my FH but not in an unreasonable way. My 155 is kinda beefy but straight for a BH. My 144g tesla is relay workable and less stable than a crave. An old fella I play with uses that beside a leopard and it's wicked/stupid long for him BH.

I replaced my 165 switch with a neutron 157 tesla. Any plastic except plasma is fine. Plasma teslas are mega beefy, even/especially 155g.

I find a 165 volt fairly interchangeable with a 157 tesla.. The tesla being a touch easier to throw because of the weight.

I just started throwing a Neutron Servo and it's less flippy than the Plasma I have. A Cosmic Neutron Crave is also a bit more stable too.

I'm older, with higher miles than most my age.
Bad shoulders (rotator cuff), broken back, and a few other items of wear and tear. 300ft golf lines is a good rip for me. I stay semi competitive with better than average putting, solid approaches and smarter overall play.

I'm looking for what I would describe as a Crave with a bit more LSF.

The Volt is ok for me, but a little more disc than these worn shoulders really need.

I imagine you and I are probably similar players. I'm 40 and several arm injuries, arthritis, and in the last year I've added periphial neuropathy to my ailments. Yikes!

What you describe is a Teebird. A disc I long for MVP to replicate. I play a lot of wind golf - and neither the servo not crave are good for this purpose. The Resistor meanwhile is too beefy for me.

I'm in same boat. Hoping one of the upcoming fairways fits the bill of 0 turn, 1-2 Fade.

I've liked the Neutron Servos I've thrown - but - at my wt limitations, the Neutron isn't wind resistant. It's a good pin-point shooter - I've unfortunatly lost two on the same hole - kicking off trees into a pond. It's a disc I think would greatly improve it's flight if it were run in Proton.

I’m a 300’ 55YO thrower that’s been playing for 2.5 years. I’m shooting around par, a little under at my local course, and a little over at strange courses.

What you’re looking for sounds like the Axiom Clash. I throw the Crave, and use the Clash in my OS Crave slot. They feel very similar in the hand. The Clash feels just like my Color Glo Teebird in flight. I know the numbers are -1 / 2 for turn/fade, but I’ve never seen it turn on me, and the fade is very reliable. Mine is 170gm in Neutron plastic, and I’ve been throwing it for about 8 months.

I'm just throwing the regular Neutron, I've not considered the Cosmic. Thanks!

I'm throwing low 160s Craves. I've never tried a Tesla, thanks!

Thanks Goob, I wondered about the Clash but that -1 scared me. Appreciate the advice!
