Waiting to see how it would compare to the Vanish. If it is a tic more stable and obviously a hair faster, this could be the big D disc for us noodle arms. As it stands now, I bag a Tern for that slot. The LE Vanish is my tailwind/long turnover bomber, but w/o a tailwind it needs a lot of room to work.

Tyler and Taylor both said on FB it was basically a longer vanish. IDK whether to nab one now or not. I like the Vanish, but was hoping for a Tern replacement.

What did you find different between the tern and a proton catalyst?

I havent thrown a catalyst. Is that what I need? My Champ tern is my go to max D driver. If I can get the same easy D from a catalyst then I may have to hit up my guy at basketbashers. I would prefer to run an all MVP/ Axiom bag but I am not going to sacrifice my oh so meager game to do so.

I've thrown a star tern and a proton catalyst back to back on pretty near the same lines-catalyst is a little straighter for me (less turn) and has a hair more fade. The tern beat it out on longest throw (I came within 25' of a 515 ever so slightly downhill hole a couple times) but I personally struggled a little bit with release points because of the shallow rim. A lightweight (maybe 167-168) proton catalyst would probably be dead on where a max weight star tern is. I can imagine a champ tern flies about the same as my catalyst.

bsammons, does the Catalyst still get out there for noodle arms like the Tern? If so how does plasma compare to proton as far as flight characteristics for the Catalyst?

Tern must be super flippy? Catalysts all depend on dome vs plastic. Terns are all over in stability.
