I agree, critically good class of discs that get less love. I think many have tried, but not quite got it right. FWIW, I do like the A1/A2 a lot. A1 has got a bit of a magic combo of fast...

Love me some Ultrium Jokeri. I keep trialing other things all around it from brands I throw more molds of, but that thing has a lock on the 3-4 speed stable-OS approach and short drive role. ...

Had a chance to throw Particle this past weekend, finally. My first throw on a short, hyzer hole that I typically Envy - although parked nicely - struck me as being ... Envyish. Maybe too much so. ...

I can't think of a less inviting name for a basket than the Deflector :D

MVP knows people want a slow-verstable gyro. My hope money is on gyro-justice.

Proton Rims

Question - which may well have been answered somewhere earlier (apologies if so) - last year, there was a teaser photo of a proton rim accompanied by a suggestion that it would be something happening...

Was having a look at the PDGA approved discs and noted the MVP Deflector approved Feb 26.

MVP Disc Sports Deflector 178.5 21.5 2.0 1.3 18.3 1.6

1.6 is a rim width not produced yet by MVP. ...

I have a different take on the Ruru. I find it RPMs stand-out disc and have thrown all blends besides Strata (a bit slick for a base plastic). Magma is a fairly soft, very grippy base plastic which...

New Molds?

With MVPs pace in releasing molds (and Axiom not too far behind) I figured we'd be seeing more than we have from Streamline. I hope they hit this plan pretty hard, so far so good.

What would...

+1. Thumb track makes it stand out a bit compared to Zone as well.

If you're looking for something Zone like, but different - A1 is the only disc I've thrown similar to the Zone speed wise which...

Ditto. Granted, at 1050m, Insanity is a decent all-rounder, but still understable enough to flip with confidence it wont burn.

Also Relay is good for this, as is a lighter weight Crave.

I have found in several cases examples of Elasto/Fluid/Frost versions of discs being noticeably more stable than VIP/Lucid/Opto counterparts. I wonder if it comes down more to the plastic itself...

In real winter (sub zero C), Plasma is hard and slick, like Proton and Neutron. Soft P and N retain some pliability, but are also pretty slick. Personally, I'm more excited about MVP's slow but...

Envy stole most of my mid work as I grew comfortable with it. Proxy and Envy, great companions and great short drivers.

Your being much closer to sea level, you'll have to take my recommendations with a grain of salt. At 1050m, things fly much more stable up here generally speaking. In this role, I can suggest that...

Thanks for the info, I do recall reading that as well. I wonder if that affects the core blends or the wing blends in equal measure or if there is a control group?
