Personally I dodged it for a while until I got beat up in the wind a couple times. The Switch has the same numbers but got blown around badly and unpredictably. Too much turn or too much fade, enter the Crave... just consistent and reliable and less affected by the wind.
It's like "Whose line is it anyway", the numbers are made up and don't mean anything anyway.

My plasma crave is one of most thrown and most loved discs in my bag. Completely dependable, uber versitle, and just all around awesome. I lean on it especially hard when I need to "disc down" and get a run away round back on track. I'd be incredibly lost without it!

I agree. I love my plasma crave. It's been with me for years now, and it's one of my most dependable discs.

I also bag a proton crave that is slightly heavier in case I need a bit more stability.

Is the Crave more similar to a Teebird, Rival, etc. or a TL, FD, etc. type of disc?

It's kind of in between, but in general it is more like a seasoned disc from group A than a new disc from group B.

Honestly for me a N Crave in lightweight reminds me of a heavier shaky Z XL (in flight) The plasma reminds me of my star one.. But better and longer.

If by similar you mean better, yes, it's better than a teebird.

A heavy Neutron or Proton Crave will fly like a broken in Teebird. Long, straight, consistent but gentle fade, tons of glide.

Plasmas seem to start with a touch less high speed stability. Better if you're looking for a more neutral driver that does gentle turnovers better.

I find both types of Craves useful. I carry a fresh N and beat N, and would go with an N and Plasma if I lost my beat Crave.
