In my experience, lighter drivers(sub 150ish) tend to dump at the end, especially when new. Though tbh, I've always had OS discs in lighter weights but they just seem to stall out at the end of the flight more than normal weight discs do.

So which plastics and weights would complement a 153g photon in your experience?

Do you have a YT channel, moose? Or just post on FB or something?

I throw my inertia about 380 and get my proton vanish, all of my nuke ss and all of my cranks out around 400 pretty consistently but the photon usually ends up closer to inertia distance although considerably left of center. Not seeing much if any turn out of it, and very low speed overstable so has a reliable fast dump at the end after a dead straight flight. Is this a normal thing for a fission photon? not that Im complaining I'm just trying to find one go to distance driver that covers all of my shots that I can buy in different plastics to get different lines out of. I can throw with a decent amount of snap but maybe not enough arm speed? Or perhaps it's just an OS version of the mold which would be great if the others are less stable.

My 148g EK Fission Photon is about as stable as a Firebird, for my arm speed.
My older 154g Fission Photon is straight to fade, just like the numbers say.

Most of my rounds played with the 148g EK Fission Photon has been between 1400 and 1600 feet eleavation.

The 148g EK Fission Photon did not make the bag. Too OS to backhand, too flexible to forehand, and I already bag a Rask for get out of jail shots.

Might as well talk about it in both places... how flat is it? And what color?

Look how pretty she is.

Haha, they make my knee hurt so I really only do it for vids/distance contests. And only in the contest if Iím losing lol.

Should have mentioned I live in a town in the rocky mountain foothills at ~3000 ft elevation and the course itself is probably one of the highest points of said town.. I cant wait to go back to visit my hometown on the ocean and see what flight number are suppose to mean lol

Well just started a love affair with a plasma Wave we'll see if that lasts.. Between it and my neutron both 155's they fill the stability gap between my Photon and Inertias. If you're throwing 400 at that elevation the Photon fission advantage may not be as good for you as it is for me, I don't throw as far, I've heard it called magical for sub 350'ish players.

Hey do people throw further at sea level then they would at 3000'?

I can't tell a whole lot of difference between 1500' (East TN) and 2100'(Asheville, NC) but I go to Miamisburg, Ohio(~700') once a year and I have a heck of a time ranging in my mids. I will toss the wasp and watch it float right and long, the fade kicking in 20' too late.
Drivers seem to matter less on distance, but they fly more understable at the lower altitude.

I am really not sure why I notice it more dropping 600' than gaining 600'. Maybe the pressure gain is not linear but instead quadratic.

It would be really cool to see what disc golf in Death Valley would be like.
