Thanks for your input. I never gelled with any MVP mids. The core of the issue is the insistence on arbitrary flight numbers tied to similar disc dimensions. We all know that similar dimensions don't...

You are always barking up this tree but nary have you ever given any concrete rationale. What is it about MVP mids that has your panties in a twist? What is it about Discraft mids that just makes you...

Agreed. It also looks bad. I understand the "rip of the bandaid" strategy. The Electron Matrix has softened the blow a bit. I realize you hate Electron, but so far this disc has been great. Pretty...

Get 1 or 2 or 3. The Relay is a under appreciated disc. It really can do lots of things well but with speed 6 power. Most don't like it because they muscle it. It needs a bit of finesse, I do agree,...

Common myth -- MVP overmolds are two plastics (with the other one being rubber). This is wrong. Both plastics are the same because they need to bond to each other, they wouldn't if they weren't. 2nd,...

Fission Photons are one of the most inconsistent molds that MVP has. That being said, they are one of my favorites. But, yeah, they need a guide.

FR Photons -- most were FAF and had a matte...

Max weight Fission varies a bit on mold and run. The latest Fission Photons 168g+ are super beefy but do break in faster than Neutron/Proton/Plasma. The beef cakes become more workable with some...

Great choice. Fantastic line shaper. Sneaky long. Now for a disc between the Relay and the Resistor. That's the one I am looking for.

Newer Neutron so a bit gummier. The shoulder on most is a bit higher than the earlier PFN runs. Seems to have more glide and a touch more stability out the gate.

That has been my experience as well. I only throw the Signal in 172g+. When I hyzer flip it comes to flat and then has a nice smooth turnover with no fade. Thrown flat it has more turn but has a...

Another shrill for the Pilot. Great glide with just a touch of stability. It feels like a mashup of the Envy class and the Ion class. It has a higher shoulder like the Ion class (especially in the...

Here's one vote for the Pilot. It is a great point and shoot and the glide for a thinner style putter is fantastic. I switched to the Pilots last year and couldn't be happier. I have a spin putt as...

They are doing that on some of the molds that fly different in different plastics. The new Neutron Pilot that is coming out is getting different numbers than the those molded in Electron.

Agree. I flick the Relay often but most often Big Jerm hyper flip style. It does moderately well in wind but not something I would rely on especially on more open courses. It is also good for...

I still bag 1 super beat Neutron Wave from 2015 but I have several Fission Photons from the 2nd run (domey) that are identical in flight to my Waves. Fission Photon is...

Pilot is very close to a Proxy. The shape of the wing and all the dimensions (look them up on the PDGA site) are nearly identical. It shares many of the properties of the the Envy class discs (Envy,...

Some runs have more dome than others, except for the FR. Those are faf but my heaviest in those are 163g. The new release of 170g+ have less dome than the 160g Photons but have a slightly higher PLH.

That is what I use my Fission Photons for. They are perfect between my Neutron Photons and my Waves. I prefer them in the 160-170g for that shot. Lighter and they start becoming more like the Wave...
