But Aim's right. I've had at least one Theory that was pretty HSS. Even with some wear on it, it really didn't turn much, it reminded me a lot of the Axis. And it was one of the first 2 I bought, from those early runs that seemed to have the most indestructible version of Neutron I've seen.

I have to mash this Plasma to get a truly US mid line out of it (for me, mashing it = 275-300.) As you say, powering it down, it's more of a laser/line locker.
The relay is one of those disc I keep saying a need to try, but never do.

Relay is dope. I would bag em but I still have a respectable stack of inertia and insanity left.

The theory really works just as well. During any round if I lose my understable discs the theory could be the replacement.

i bag one but it rarely gets flight time in a round. in the field i love the relay but its very picky on release angle as it will hold it. its a fantastic disc very very far for such a slow disc its worth a visit but work with it to dial it on once you do its amazing. for my lazy bones i just bag a crave and a theory is covering most of my under stable needs around here.

The Relay is just a better Theory for me, for the most part. My meat hooks like the lil extra chunk to the rim. Also for flicks.

I don't get that. One is a fairway driver, and the other is barely a mid and more like a fast putter. 16mm vs 12mm.

Which part? I guess what I'm saying is, the Relay does for me awesomely what I want the Theory to do, which it only does mediocre-ly. The relay is faster, but to me a bit more (and more reliably) US, even given that. It's just a better disc. For me.

The Relay also does it at the D I want the Theory too, and farther.

Shorter distances where presumably I'd "need" the Theory instead of the Relay, the Theory is no better, because it's basically a Proxy at those distances, and I like the Proxy better.

And the rim difference is what I was talking about. I have big hands, like the Relay rim better.

If I carried both, there would be zero overlap. If I threw a Relay the distances I throw a Theory, it would be overstable. If I attempted to get my theory out to distances I'd use a relay, it would be a roller.

My Theory is nothing at all like my Proxy.

I've had 3 Theorys now. None of them are (or have been) as US as the one you seem to have. Not even close.

So that's probably where we're not seeing eye to eye on this.

I agree. Maybe pick one and throw the heck out of it in the trees. It will get there.
