I'm not second guessing hyzer angles or worrying its going to turn too much, just ripping it.

I think the differences between the two are a little more nuanced than that. I think to a degree, a Mayhem VS Proton Octane is like Eagle vs TB. Obviously an Octane shows a little more turn than a Teebird but the overall flight path they take for me on a 500' shot is straighter than the Mayhem, which has more turn and similar fade. I did some field throws with 168g Eclipse Octanes during that session with the Mayhems....maybe I can do an edit comparing them back to back.

Based on the description I was expecting something a bit more understable. Though I haven't thrown them side by side with Neutron Octanes yet....managed to lose mine before I got these Mayhems.
This almost sounds like the Crave/Servo relationship, but sort of flipped, where the MVP Octane is like the Crave in the scenario, and the Mayhem is sort of like the Servo?
