Thanks for the input. If the difference is negligible, then it sounds like this is not the droid I'm looking for.

How would you compare it to the Hatchet? Noticeably wider rim and faster? Similar stability? Do you get much distance separation between a Nemesis and Hatchet?

I'm thinking about trying out the "massively understable fast disc" thing again. I used to throw the Vanish in this role, but didn't find enough separation from my Hatchet to make bagging both...

That's fair enough. And honestly, I probably wouldn't bag an Electron Envy myself if I wasn't already bagging a Proton Envy. I just like having two discs in the same mold but different plastics, to...

Are you sure you're not rolling your wrist? 350' of power shouldn't be flipping a Trespass, and REALLY shouldn't be flipping a Wraith. I've thrown both molds extensively in a variety of weights and...

Yep, Electron Envies will do that. If you want a true 0 turn you have to go with one of the premium plastics. Personally I bag both, as baseline/premium Envy is a great 1-2 punch.

Any benefit gained by the gumminess of your Harp will be counteracted by its overstability. Roll aways happen because your putter is landing on edge, and overstable putters (all other things equal)...

Yes and no. The Getaway's PLH is higher, and thus stability increased, on discs that are extra domey. The burst Getaways that I've owned where generally on the domey end of the spectrum, but not...

I've noticed the same thing as the OP. I do think the advice to new players should be to avoid the fast stuff. Throwing distance drivers before your form/power allows is stunting your growth as a...

I find it interesting that you're an exclusive Envy man. It's a great disc that I use a ton, but I do find it a tad fast for <200' and not overstable enough for a lot of my forehand lines. ...

No. Exit velocity is one factor of many. Release angle, off-axis torque, elevation, and wind are all variables that will impact how much your disc turns.

A good way of neutralizing variables is...

I throw baseline putters. They get pretty ugly and deformed but still fly great. I don't typically tune them back.
