Is the Deflector beaded? Looking at the specs, the Pyro seems like a deflector without a bead.

I'll give them one more shot sometime this week but I don't expect to bag them.

Haven't tried a Pyro yet, is it less OS than a Deflector? I decided against the Deflector since they don't go much further than the Entropy and I like the Entropy rim much better.
Id put the stability of the Pyro between a Deflector and Vector

I played a round yesterday that I leaned heavy on the Relay and the Banzai. I much as I love the flight of the Relay, the Banzai feels so much nicer in the hand.
So many of us here have wished for a more stable to OS Relay, I think we could have that with a small bead added to it like the Banzai.

Sounds interesting. I think I saw some at PIAS last time I stopped by.

I have only thrown the Page Peirce Ti Stalker, so take the following with a bit of salt.

Faster and more overstable. I throw a 150g Banzai. It will turn a small bit at first, fly straight for a while and fade hard at the end but without the dump most OS discs have.

I use the Banzai between my Plasma Volt and Circuit Relay. More fade than the Volt but at 150g, much easier to get up to speed. Less max distance than the Volt unless I throw it on a flex line. On a flex line, I can get it farther than a Volt on a flat line, but only by about 3 feet.

I think of it as a slightly shorter MOLF.

Try a neutron Matrix if you spot one, I've thrown mine for 18 months and it still has less turn than the proton I had before it

i took my plaz theory 175g green core orange rim out of my bag

if anyone around is interested in it pm me well work out a cash deal or trade

i would rather see it go to a frequent poster on this who will make great use of it because they love the mold than selling to some local who is buying it for a water disc
