I have been liking the Reactor. I have only had field throws up to this point and will have to give it the paces in these NE woods. So far I have found it to be a very straight flyer and handles power well without much HSS. For now it has a place in the bag until I can get some more time with it in the woods. But it reminds me a bit more of a mid/fairway hybrid like a Kaze. While the wing profile is not as fairway-like like the Kaze, it has a longer flight than many mids. It is super glidey unlike most MVP molds. It consistently outdrives my mids on full power shots and is easy to control on many angles. The newer Neutron plastic feels like a blend of the older OG hard Neutron and Soft Neutron. I see the Reactor being a pretty popular MVP mid.

I have same feelings also. I think it compliments Envy/Proxy really well.

As my bag has evolved to its current state, I'm starting to feel like MVP/Axiom is the Nissan of discs. And what I mean by that is that every time I have bought a vehicle, a Nissan has been under heavy consideration. I like Nissan's designs and combination of features and value. But whether I've bought a sedan, crossover, or minivan, Nissan was always the second place vehicle...meaning I bought something else.

I'm getting the same vibe from MVP. I really like their Photon/Wave/Vanish class of drivers quite a bit, but I get better results from just throwing Trespasses in multiple plastic types. The Vanish is still in the bag because I haven't beat in a Trespass yet to be that understable, but its days are numbered. Waves are purely backups now for my most beat Trespass.

I really like Envies and Proxies. But they are a little fast for me to dial in as approach discs, and I never clicked with baseline Envies for putting (probably because I prefer beaded putting putters). I still think the Envy is the greatest pure driving putter ever made, but I prefer the putter I drive with to be something that I am equally comfortable with inside of 200'.

So, much like most of my favorite vehicles that I didn't buy are Nissans, I've found that most of my favorite discs that I don't bag are gyro. :(

So, say you didn't have a buzz, and wanted to keep things gyro (for whatever reason) does a reactor replicate an axis close enough? I bag a circuit plasma axis and love it for straight mid throws. The only other mid I bag is a matrix. From what I've heard before, reactor is closer to a matrix than an axis. Truth? Thoughts? Also thought about going electron matrix in that slot also.

Reactor is more OS than Axis.

I have obtained MVP Reactors and thrown them. I feel like this is ridiculous, but I want something in between the Mint Bobcat and the Reactor.

Want the Bobcat flight for full power flat rips (zero turn and late fade) and Reactor flight for slight hyzers (flip up, no turn, late fade) and big sweeping hyzers (glide left without dumping).

No, I donít want a Buzzz. Which of the following would be in the narrow gap between Apex Bobcat and Neutron Reactor?
Method
MD4
750 M2
500 MX-3
Anchor
Opto-X Compass
Lucid-X EMac
VIP-X Gatekeeper
Pine
Verdict
Royal Bobcat

I just need a magic mid that doesnít drift right if I throw it flat but also wonít dump if I give it too much hyzer. Because the right disc will fix my suckage.

Max weight Z Comet is what fills that spot.

Not the majik part, the flight part

Thatís not more overstable than a Reactor.

Could be if you get a heavy 180Z or some of those weird new ESP tour series or titanium. I'm a gyro head but I refuse to be a gybro.. The only thing MVP hasn't beat is my Comet...

And yeah I guess it's not that stable, but throw a f***n comet and get outta this thread! Youre ruining my rep yo. :D

Lots of vectors still out there, I guess...I didn't like it but that's probably the Droid you were looking for

I get that. And I haven't fixed my suckage.

But if you have discs that are that close, probably more useful to pick one and learn to work the angles to get the flight you want.
