This is correct. Electron and neutron/proton/plasma are in different polymer families and do not bond with one another. Electron discs have a rim made from something in the same polymer family.

So speaking of white rims... scored a 155 pdga wave on FB. How thematic.

Is there a FBDGAA support/help group? It's like crack I gotta couple guys to beat out all the time, there's one dude, JC good guy but he's my BIN nemesis. :D

I started throwing my 159 cosmic relay, it's almost servo country. I can't get much turn out of it, it just straight lasers to fade. Be interesting to see how it breaks in but with my current stock of neutrons I may just start buying cosmics for the cycle. I've been hunting a FH ace with it last 3 nights in a row.

I actually don't know, myself. I would imagine there is some difference, just based on how the rim and flight plate plastics bond and what is required to make that happen, but that is just supposition and not actual knowledge.

Any extra Intel on the Hex?
I'm not sure what you mean by extra intel - I'm in a bit of the media promoting the Hex and I can honestly say it went right in the bag after about four practice throws with it. The shot I'm speaking of in the Team MVP thoughts commercial, the one I'm throwing and speaking to, was in a massive tailwind in Emporia, KS the weekend of the Dynamic Discs Open and I was easily getting 300 feet on a full power turnover forehand. It hyzerflips nicely on a forehand for me, and is more of the more shapeable mids I've played with for touch and finesse shots.

This weekend at the Des Moines Challenge on hole 14, I was at the bottom of the landing zone just past the creek, stuck a bit in a trees on the left. My only real shot was to stretch out to my right and throw an uphill anhyzer approach with a forehand that had to fly between the rising hill and the low canopy. I did with the Hex, parked it about 15 feet from the pin, and made par.

I'm definitely a fan.

Anyone hear when the Nomad may be released?

Felt some of the R2 stuff today at a local shop. Incredibly gummy. Not quite Neutron Soft but far from typical stiff Neutron.

If they make an R2 Volt I may have to try one.

Was at the local shop today and every time Iím there I always feel up the couple reactors in stock. Flight wise what are they comparable to?

Digging them because the rim feels a bit more like a driver in a FH grip. Nice and flat too with no bead.
