Overall not bad but the wooded nature is the only real challenge since itís flat and there is only the small creek for OB. Nice for a change of pace though, and since the final week of there Deerfield league is this week I wanted to play that style of golf to prepare.


Iíve been meaning to get out to Deerfield since itís playing in the Fall Salute this year, but itís good to know Frog Rock (which is a lot closer to me) is a similar style for practice purposes. OP is great but Iíve been itching for a change of pace.

I know everyone has their own experience and their own way of describing discs.

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.

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

If youíre willing to branch out from MVP/Axiom you will likely have several options that should fit that bill. Something like a Teebird or a similar disc (Explorer, Instinct, Rival, etc.) might give you that flight youíre looking for.

I actually just jump from the Crave to a Fireball. While the Fireball is a bit more overstable than what youíre wanting, I find they are pretty manageable and get good distance if you get them in lighter weights.

Good luck with your search.

Thanks Ray, I've been thinking that very thing, I could very easily slot a fresh Star Teebird and get what I want after a few weeks. Maybe I need to keep my eyes open.
I like the smaller rims, slower speeds

Until the cypher or JCís new fairway, Iíd agree that instinct/fd2/teebird/rival/explorer are your best options. The latest c-FD2 is what Iíve been pairing with my craves, really nice forehand disc and fills the gap btw Crave and Resistor nicely. Theyíre just nearly impossible to find now, so maybe look on OTB or throwshop to get desired flatness of anything 7/5/0/2 you can find.

Thanks Mrcheviot... Here's hoping one of the new ones hits that slot

You could try a Dynamic Discs Evader. Iíve been curious about them and if you try one and itís horrible then I wonít have to buy one to try myself.

What flavor of crave are you throwing? I've heard the cosmic neutron ones are a little more stable. Idk if they get to a -2 fade, tho.

All of my Craves are max weight cosmic neutrons. They are stupid straight and fly true to the numbers.
