Got this one at 172. It's a unique feeling disc. Kinda blurs the line between fairway and mid. Flies as advertised. Very similar flight to my Resistor at the same weight with midrange control. Definitely giving it some playing time to see if it fits in my lineup.

I got my 174 g Deflector on Thursday so have only had a limited number of throws. Mine seems to fly between my Harp and my Justice. It really feels nice for a flick with the thinner rim so I'm swapping out my Harp for the Deflector for now.

A few rounds in with mine now. For me, this disc's highest and best use is on our par 4s. Ours(4s) tend to be wide open holes with the baskets tucked into a small grouping of trees. Straight at the basket is usually a no-go. I am not great at high hyzers. With this disc, I can rip it flat and hard, and the end of the flight is the perfect larger hook around the side of the trees under the basket.

I was a Hornet thrower and now have gone on to the Drone. Not in love with the Drone yet so is this disc at all comparable? The OS Mid slot in my bag just compliments my Buzzz's.

Comparable to what?

It is a hair slower vs a drone and a lot like a hornet but more of a striaght edge wing design vs a curved concave bottom wing.

I assume you don't like the drone b/c it is faster and more OS (less glide too) vs a hornet? And I have never really liked the feel of the drone (or stalker but tossed both for a while b/c they worked) but deflector feels good in the hand both fh/bh and doubt you will find domey ones like many OS molds. Hornets are most deflector like when max wt as the lighter ones are more zbuzzz w/some fade. I would say the deflector is in the middle with less glide vs hornet w/ just the same no turn/solid fade flight of a drone but will fly when mashed on unlike many similar OS molds.

^Disagree a Drone is faster than a Hornet (yes I know Drone rim is .2 wider). Thanks for the Deflectors

For sure splitting hairs. IMO the drone design (like stalker and some of those other odd DC drivers .. XS) just have that older school slower driver fast mid feel/flight.

Love you buddy.

I'm about to leave for vacation but might have to test the Deflector before hand...first time a disc has ever felt like it could replace my decade long Drone carry. We'll see.

It's interesting how over the years you can successfully interpret and hypothesize a discs flight from shape alone, finer nuances especially.

These sound fun, I'm going to have to order some to try out. Might be the first new mid in the bag in some time.

I had a lot of lucky throws and some great putting. This disc carved up the tight fairways like a champ. The deflector is a great addition to the MVP midrange lineup. It was well worth the wait.
