Idk man. I’ve bagged several pilots, a Stabilizer, three separate traces (darn things like to glide forever into the junk when I throw them bad) and two drifts over the years and they are all uniform and have a touch of give but are pretty similar to any other premium blend I’ve ever used-star (depending on the run Neutron might even be stiffer), fuzion (neutron’s been stiffer than most fuzion), etc. maybe a touch less firm than some ESP I’ve felt but honestly it probably hits right in the middle of any other premium opaque blend I’ve used, just tends to be more uniform in the Streamline brand than other plastics I’ve thrown.
Maybe our tastes in floppiness are a little different-Neutron does have an ever so slight “gummy” tack to it on the hand but overall I’ve found is reasonably firm flex-wise. So if it’s hand feel I see what you’re saying-If it’s overall bend-ability then I’m not sure.

as a totally different note:
I do not have perfect form/release but am in the process of reworking it. A lot of grip and release is preference but does follow some basic principles-and the grip should never be so tight you distort the disc to a dramatic degree. The grip that gets the most “sling” and transmits the most energy from my arm’s snap is actually only using the thumb enough to keep the disc on my index finger. Unless you use a forced shank release, but in order for it to be any kind of accurate needs to be in a perfect spot and only hit at the perfect moment, but at that point grip and distortion doesn’t really matter a whole lot.

Definitely being molded by Mint. Given the colors iv'e seen them in in it looks like Sublime plastic and the weight sticker on the back is Mint style.

I would agree with this. Coming from a golf background one of the first lessons I was taught and would teach new players, is not to strangle the club before the swing starts. People tend to tense up plenty enough during the swing to keep ahold of the club and if you already have a tight grip on it, it can make your swing a bit less fluid and more robotic...

Mint doesn't mold their own discs. They are molded by MVP. So yeah definitely molded by the same people which is MVP. Also sublime plastic=plasma.

Anybody able to post a rim picture for one of these? I'm curious about the profile, with the same plastic and rim width/depth as the Alpha I'm imagining it could make a nice compliment.

Many of the small disc companies create "new" discs with their manufacturer by combining the top and bottom plates from different preexisting molds. My guess is the Mantra is the top plate of a Drift and bottom plate of a Lift. The Mint Alpha could be the opposite.
