I enjoyed my first round with the Deflector.

First impression was it reminds a lot of the Gators I used to threw when I first started out.

The Axis, Vector and Tensor all have a nice amount of glide, then end in a forward penetrating fade. Though they have different levels of fade, they're fairly similar in a lot of ways.

Deflector feels unique compared to them. A lot more hoggish, and the way it fades has the disc finishing more sideways at times than forward.

Vectors and Tensors I can make hold an anny to the ground FH or BH pretty easily. My Deflector seems a lot more inclined to flex out of an anny release every time. Still dialing it in on flex shots. I did have nice one off the tee yesterday.....280' hole that's dead straight....flicked it with a generous amount of anny, and it flexed back at the perfect time. Nearly skipped in, but went just wide right.

I feel pretty confident saying it'll make the bag. It's a lot more overestable than anything MVP has released slower than a Resistor. I'll probably drop my fresh Vector in favor of a Deflector, then carry my seasoned Vector, an Axis, plus a beat Axis for turnovers.

I'll start filming with it this weekend.

Didn't have time to film a full 18. This was my second round with the Deflector. It's a fun disc that's easy for me to throw accurately. Flies a lot like a slower Resistor in my opinion.

So I've been bagging a Deflector for a few months now and I love this disc. My disc came board flat from the factory and I assumed they were all like that. Yesterday, at a local tournament, I joined a local club and part of the membership included a custom stamped disc from MVP. Sure enough, they had Deflectors so I wanted to grab one in a max weight. While flipping through all the discs trying to find the perfect one, I noticed that there were quite a few domey Deflectors in the box.

I ended up taking a 179g Deflector that was board flat, but now I'm curious how those domey one's fly compared to the board flat one's. Does anyone here have both and want to chime in how they compare?

Slower resistor, yup.
I carry both discs and they kinda overlap but with Deflector I have easier time to adjust for shorter holes.

The Deflector has taken away some shots from the Resistor, but the latter still rules for thumbers.

I’ve acquired an Eclipse Deflector and thrown it a few times now. It’s almost as overstable as the Justice I had been throwing last year. If it keeps HSS but loses just a little bit of fade as it beats in, it will be a perfect forehand disc for the short local course we have.
