I may also want it so my wife can use - so hoping its good for both of us.

Also, how is the profile? Whats it look/feel like? I have really only heard about the Relay vs the other US fairways in Gyro and people seem to dig it

Not having your arm, I would have to guess at the flight. But I've thrown frozen ropes with my 174 up to 300'. Full power for you will definitely show turn, but I don't think it will be too "flippy" even up to 400. It has some decent fade at the end, if you give it height (maybe a 1.5 on the Innova scale), so I'll even power it down for approaches. It feels small in the hand, since the rim is only 1.6cm, so your wife might like it too. It's flat, no real dome to speak of. This also lends to a great FH feel.

People dig it because it's one of their best discs.

You ever throw a cheetah? It basically flies like a fresh cheetah with a modern wing. 6 4 -1.5 1.5ish... More or less flat. You can shape it like a mid but its sneaky long, especially when new and still has the late fade... If you like to throw rollers, it also does that pretty well once broken in a bit or if you got enough arm to torque it over.

So far, the Relay and the Inertia are the only US discs, from MVP/Axiom, that I bag.
Both will turn without burning, both will flatten out with little fade at the end....assuming you give it enough height.
The Inspire has a far amount of turn, but is more nose angle sensitive...easier to stall it out into a dump.

Relay - This is like a fresh Cheetah, perfectly seasoned Ch/Star Leopard. Any hyzer flipper is going to instantly become familiar with this. It flies a tight, slightly understable line that's ideal for threading wooded tunnels and controlled annys. It's stable enough new to FH consistently for straight to turnover lines (those barely right to left, gentlest of hyzers).

Switch - Like a worn out Eagle-X. Lots of healthy turn but still a smidge of fade to hook up. It'll do big S-curves if thrown flat and given enough hang time. One of those discs you're not sure what you'd use it for until you run into that hole that's shaped like a question mark. I have a beat Fuzion Trespass that flies very similarly to this.

Inspire - Haven't thrown one enough to really weigh in. Seems like it would be like a more understable Crave. I think it's faster than the Relay.

Signal - Specialty disc. Off the shelf roller flippy, absolutely has to be given plenty of hyzer to go anywhere in the air. Great for really low arm-speed players, similar to a Diamond. If it weren't for the overmold, this disc would probably be unusable but it has just enough stability to be useful for tricky shots (like flicking around a corner when you're tight on the inside side of the fairway).

No, the Inspire is much more LLS than the Crave. Think more like a fairway Katana.

I haven't thrown a crave but i would describe my inspire as having almost no fade. Thrown flat it will have a late and slow turn. Thrown with moderate hyzer it pops up and just goes straight. Its the only inspire I've thrown though so idk, it could be a freak.

My lighter Inspires are exactly like a slower Valkyrie. I had a max weight that was almost as stable as my Craves though.
