I dropped that class and just carry a Spin instead.

The Matrix IS a real mid though...if you like softies.

This is coming from someone whom uses their mids mostly for touch shots.
There's a lot of truth to this. I dunno about the Vertex (haven't thrown) but I'd lump the Tangent in with the "slow mid/fast putter" category of Theory and Alias. My Theory (heavy proton watermelon) and Spin coexist though because A) I prefer wide mids for a lot of annys and turnovers for some reason (my non-MVP bag usually has a Fuse, Tursas or Comet in it) and B) the Spin seems to like spike annys whereas the Theory will glide out easier.

I guess I'm in the minority though, I like most of MVP's mids and roll with a Vector, Axis and Theory currently (along with a Spin and Ion).

I throw the Dimension. I throw it as my bomb forehand disc. It is mostly a meat hook that I can get out like 350 but if I throw it well I can turn it over for more D. As for backhand I rarely throw it unless the wind is SERIOUS and I live the in the wooded Northeast so it rarely is. It is a really stable disc but it has HUGE distance potential. On Sunday we had a team challenge event and after finishing our doubles round we were walking back and they had a series of athletics fields. Standing on a hill down towards a soccer field we all tried to throw across it and over the fence(probably about 450). This is post Nor-easter so the wind was gusting like 20+ and a headwind at that. Everyone threw pretty much all of their high speed stuff and many came close a few hitting the fence. So my buddy who has a huge arm is like you have any more drivers? Give me a driver. I look in my bag, looks like none then see the Dimension, don't usually see it in that slot but immediately realize the potential. I give him the disc and he unleashes on it into the headwind. It turned over quite a bit but then came out of the turn with a Vengeance flying over the fence and going another 100 feet. Everyone was like, "WOAH!" The best part is lots of those guys hate mvp and I went up to one friend who I know does and told the story(not mentioning the disc yet) at the end of the story. What kind of disc was it? Bobby just engaged GYRO! Keep in mind my dimension is also quite beat in from forehanding it into many trees very hard lol. I would say if you have a 450 plus backhand its appropriate or 400+ and like to throw anny's

Only thing I found at my local shop was a couple Circuit Plasma Craves with that Charcoal Black core. Nothing else matches what you want. Sorry couldn't help you there.

Good pro shop. I snagged a Circuit Relay when I made a road trip there in '16.
