Agreed on the second point! Great job mods!

I would have to disagree with your first observation, but I'd have to add I also feel that way about the rest of their mids. Many other throwers feel the Tangent and Alias are on the short side for mids, but I do not feel the same. While those molds & the Theory might not reach the distances I hit with my Axis, the difference is very small for me. All of their mids fly distinctly mid-like for me, and go further than their putters. It might have something to do with my throwing style though, because you are not the only person to feel this way.

Can confirm. Since moving to Charlotte I think I've played one or two rounds with winds over 10mph. It's crazy how still the air is compared to the constant howling at Arboretum.

I prefer my N Theory to my N Tangent. One big difference is the plastic. I swear that the first run Neutron Tangent is the slipperiest disc in my collection. Thankfully Brad and Chad improved on that.

Been really enjoying how straight these when powered down to 80%.

It was a real honor working with Zam and MVP/Axiom on the Artist Series.
Still been too busy to get out and throw the darn thing, but can't wait to take it to the course.

Following is the line art and photo of the double stamped Limited Edition disc.


The origin of Doc Volt.



I'll have a few of these during the Thanksgiving weekend at the Skulboy Store.
You can look for a notice on when they go live at the Skulboy Facebook page.

Hope everyone has an awesome Turkey or Tofurkey Day!

I find the theory to be one of my longer mids. A good hyzer flip and it goes forever.

Interested in this disc. How does it fly on a flat 250ish toss - straight with fade, turn and pan out, slow turn, etc.? Similar distance to a Fuse or significantly shorter?

For reference:

I find GL Fuses quite straight unless I turn them intentionally, and then they tend to turn too much.

Tangent flies beautifully straight for me, but not significantly further than my putter (Clutch).

Also, any idea when the Theory will be available at 166-169 grams, or did I already miss the light ones?

Thanks!

straight if max weight vs slight glidey slow right turn if lighter...

For reference:

I find GL Fuses quite straight unless I turn them intentionally, and then they tend to turn too much.

This is what I love about the theory and threw many a fuses as well as similar molds it has a very nice workable HSS and very little LSS but not flippy at all like you see with some similar discs IMO the GYRO of MVP discs is very apparent in this mold and gives it the advantage over a disc like the fuse

Tangent flies beautifully straight for me, but not significantly further than my putter (Clutch).

I throw tangents, theorys, vectors, ions over 300' so I never really understand short vs long discs except when people are talking about some slower molds in lid like form or very OS low glide molds. The distance capability of the theory is no less than a tangent and IMO with the glide and forward penetration of the LSS its capable of flying just as far. I threw a shot carried by some tailwind which exceeded 375' easily if not over 400' and can reach 300' fairly effortlessly with this disc vs a tangent you really need to get cruising

Also, any idea when the Theory will be available at 166-169 grams, or did I already miss the light ones?

Weights: 166g 178g are available and see no real need for a lighter one at my power/skill but something a player like my little brother I think would really enjoy in a lighter weight. I know Zam says the 2 different weights pair nicely.
Thanks!
Hope that helps--- honestly JUST GET ONE!!! Might be able to preorder a skullboy edition too still if you want PM
