Default Your favorite 'NEW to you' disc you've tried in the last 6-12 months?

What is one disc (or several ) that you've picked up to try and see it as a game changer? It doesn't have to be Newly released, but maybe something new to you that you decided to try and ended up loving?

For me: Westside Shield (BT plastics for putting) , the MD4 (been looking for a slightly OS mid that flies like a buzz with more bite-this is it) , The Volt (that comfortable go-to fairway/control driver that really does it all really well - like a longer beat teebird or a more controlled Valkyrie) , and Mayhem (been looking for that Beat in Destroyer flight in a NEW disc and the Mayhem is that, slight turn rides straight but hooks up, massive distance, good control)

I have actually had the Mayhem for a while but its gotta be my favorite Big rim disc I've tried in a LONG time --- but also the Teleport

400g D3 170-172 : Incredible controlled distance. Maybe the best driver mold I have ever thrown.

I’m loving my proxy, it has such a nice hss. Workable but I don’t find it takes off on me... just flies so well. I find my wizards have a tipping point where they go and don’t come back... not as workable for me.

K3 Berg - Pure accuracy
Pro Pig - So comfortable and I love the flight

I used to think putters were boring and did not really like throwing them. These two discs changed my mind and now I am looking at other putters to try like the RDG Scale and Stego.

A max weight dyed Z Wasp, not domey but with a bit of a shoulder, really surprised me with the level of glide and Goldilocks stability. Fast but does not fall out of the air. I picked up a backup which is a little flatter, will have to give it a go too.

FDs were new to me, and man, they go farrrrr. Have to some degree simplified my bag because now I don't feel the need to bag leopards plus something like a hatchet for glidey woods fairway drives, the FD covers that whole swath of shots.

Either the Hurricane or Aftershock. The hurricane is a force for slightly more normal arms. The aftershock is a perfect pair (in my bag at least) with a comet. Faster, slightly more high speed stable, and a pretty familiar feel if you get a nice domey one.

Other than the Envy, Volt, and Tesla I haven't thrown much MVP/Axiom. Giving more a try this year.

Insanity - made the bag almost immediately. great S-lines, hyzer flips, anny with late or no flex. almost as much distance as my Terns

Honorable mentions
Clash - straight to stable fairway, very comfortable and trustworthy BH/FH
Proton Fireball - super flat, super comfortable. It's a firebird that I know will be flat wherever I buy it.
Wave - great distance, hyzer-flip to turn, rollers. Nice but started out too understable (tried Plasma and Neutron) looking for MVP/Axiom like this but a with bit more stability
