The only two discs I have are the Neutron Wave and the Soft Electron Ion. I'm not good enough to throw the Wave yet, too fast for me. But I love the Ion. Can't find a more straight throwing putter. I can throw that thing 200' in a straight line or on a wicked soft fade or on an anny that levels out and hits the ground flat. Feels good in my hand as well and I like the rim on it as it doesn't get too damaged on impact. Pretty resilient little disc for being as soft as it is.

To your other points I don't have a lot of feedback as I don't have much more experience with your products. I think maybe some more beginner friendly discs (lower speed) would be a good addition. You look at brands like Innova and Discraft and a lot of their market is the lower speed discs for learning that can transfer well into a pro's bag.

You guys need to add the flight numbers to the pull down menus so you can quickly find a disc if you know the flight numbers you are looking for, instead of having to open each disc's page to see the numbers. And Soft Neutron Ions.

What do you like about our:

Discs:

Do you like the plastic?
I am a fan of the plastics, nice variety of durable vs grippy. Very consistent feel and look to them. Also the plasma and base plastics have been a very nice addition IMO.

How does the rim feel?
Generally good, although I do not like when the name is printed on the outer black rim section of the mold. Would prefer it on the plate like most companies.

Domey? Flat? Preference?
I prefer more flat discs, They feel better in the hand, however, whatever the mold is just make them consistent. I think having some dome to distance drivers helps with glide, where mids, putters, and overstable utility discs should be flatter.

What would you like to see next? (Yes, we know about the OS Mid/Puttersoon™ )
I would like to see a blunt faced fairway driver. Like an overstable utility that fits really well in the hand for FH shots. (like the trident was for trilogy)


Bags
I would like to see a bag that has a built in seat.

Overall:

I think the best thing you have going for you is the consistency of the molds. Keeping the business and mold variety smaller while being more consistent in flight is what separates your discs from other brands IMO. I love that I can buy a 173-175 Mayhem off the rack and it will fly exactly like the one I bought a year ago.

Excited about the Deflector, then thoroughly disappointed to pre-order one at 167-68 just to be told they are being offered above 170 only. Greeeeeeaaaaaat - the company that makes the best lightweight discs in the world either makes a limited number of them or none at all, depending on the mold.

If it's popular, maybe they'll make it in Fission.

^^^ This. I also prefer midranges around 167-168.

Tossed a buddy's Axis when they first came out and fell in love with the flight. But never purchased one because the Axis is only available well above my preferred weight.

The primary reasons I throw as many MVP/Axiom discs as possible are:

1. Available in light weights; and
2. Consistency of manufacture.

So yes, no Deflectors in the 160s may keep me from even trying the disc.

Help me understand this. What is attractive to you about a light weight overstable mid?

I throw more consistently when each class of discs - midranges, putters, fairways, distance drivers - has a consistent weight. For example I prefer putters 170-3, mids 166-8, etc. Jumping around in weights sometimes leads to early/late releases.

So the attraction is not specifically a light overstable mid; the attraction is having a mid that is the same weight as my other mids.

Although I will say that light, overstable discs in general can be very fun to throw. It is quite entertaining when one of my "paper plates" stands up to a strong headwind when others are turning over their max weight drivers.

Does that answer your question?
