Assuming your release is clean, pretty dang straight.
If not, turn and burn.

It's not as u.s. as the numbers look but it is spin and torque sensitive

155-162 Neutron Inertia was my main driver for quite a while. I always found them pretty predictable in a headwind. They are understable, but throw them with a little clean hyzer and they will stay fairly straight in most headwinds at my ~300' distance.

But keep in mind that Inertias are speed-stable rather than stable, so if you torque-monkey an Inertia into a strong headwind it will run away.

I am a 325' thrower mine hold up ok in the wind. they will drift more to the right in the wind but still fade out on a smooth release. i through them in the 155 range.

All of the 10mm MVP molds are extra gyro happy it seems. They really nailed it down with that class and the slower relay stuff. Even the virus will handle some headwind with hyzer and good clean snap.

There is not a single 10 "speed" mold I didn't like when using them regularly even as max D dricers for a while but teslas are only one itb these days.

Anyone still throwing the Inertia?
Was my max D driver when only hitting 325-50' and carves up the woods too.

I picked one up used for a temp bag, while travelling, in April. It went into my regular bag when I got home. The stamp is barely visible in the right light--I thought that it didn't have one for a while--and it seems to be nicely seasoned, but nowhere near trashed.

I "had" a 154 Plasma Inertia til I torque monkeyed it onto I-270.

That Plasma Inertia was the longest disc I've ever thrown - and I've thrown a lot of discs. Given perfect situations, I was able to achieve up to 100' increase in drives with the Inertia over an identical Tesla when thrown correctly. My typical Tesla drive length in the 150s-160s classes is between 350-400' with a bit more distance in perfect conditions (downhill, tailwind). In those situations, I was heaving the Inertia out to 500' - but the inertia's lack of turn meant that if I threw the same line with same motion and footwork, the inertia would land 50-100' right of the Tesla. That's a lot of fairway difference between the two.

Not gonna lie, I switched to MVP after nearly 20 years with Innova because I liked the Inertia when I picked one up at a PIAS. It's got a great feel to it.

I am running a 12 disc set up right now and the inertia is holding down the main bh driver spot. keeping going back and forth between PL and N though.
