Default Deflector

Was having a look at the PDGA approved discs and noted the MVP Deflector approved Feb 26.

MVP Disc Sports Deflector 178.5 21.5 2.0 1.3 18.3 1.6

1.6 is a rim width not produced yet by MVP. This would put the wing 1mm smaller than the Relay and 2mm wider than the Matrix for comparison of nearest neighbors in the MVP stable and equal to mostly speed 6's elsewhere (Leopard, Stalker, Gazelle, for example). The max weight of 178.5 is fairly ambiguous as well, but other driver molds (the Stalker) share a similar dimension and max weight.

I hadn't read anything about this disc yet nor seen a mention in a thread on a search here - any more news or testers out there yet?

Most likely a speed 5 or speed 6 OS disc. Most over on MVP Fan FB page feel it is going to be a speed 5 mid that is essentially an OS Matrix.

We talked about it briefly in the main MVP thread when it first popped up on the approved list but since MVP doesn't really give out any info before official announcements we really don't know what it is. There has been rumors of an OS mid in the works though...

Sometimes their naming convention gives clues as to the intent of their discs (Resistor, Limit, Shock, etc).

Dictionary definition of Deflector:

a device that deflects something, in particular.
a plate or other attachment for deflecting a flow of air.

I'd side with the implication of a wind fighter based on the evidence. Not gonna lie - I'd like a gyro Justice.

If this wasn't such a PG board I'd give it the Clerks Berserker treatment.

There really needs to be an emoji scratching its head...because that makes no sense to me in this context.

16mm is the Relay class. But this is wider diameter and heavier. Could be the old PDGA measuring again. Time will tell.

Any ideas on a release time frame? Id be interested in an OS matrix, but itd have to be pretty darn OS. I bag a max weight proton matrix in my OS mid slot. I love that disc, but its already pretty stable.
