Default Insanity Vs. Impulse

I'm looking for a super understable driver. I can drive 400'+ on a good day. I'm looking for something that can go around 375' on a long smooth anny. I used to throw my very worn First run Nuke, but it is now gone and no Nukes since then seem to fly the same.

I've been really liking MVP and Axiom discs. I throw the Crave a lot and it S curves very nicely close to 400'. Ok Now, I'm looking at originally the Inspire, but I noticed the Insanity and Impulse. They are the exact same numbers on Disc Golf Center and I'm wondering if they are the same discs, or what is different with them.

Impulse is the most understable MVP disc. Insanity is between the Inertia (little more HSS) and Impulse.

All three are solid choices and i do find the switch/inspire or even amp (coming out in plasma plastic this Friday) to fly 350' anhyzer lines very controlled even though they are only 7-9 speed discs.

Do you want to throw hyzer flips that finish with a little fade or just something that turns over?

You can't go wrong with any of the molds IMO. I have used them all with success and honesetly still not settled down on one. I currently have both switches and insanities in different bags and plan on throwing the AMP when i get my order tomorrow.

Impulse rolls very well and easier to get to stand up from a flat release. Insanity is in a very soft neutron plastic blend not seen b4 with other MVP drivers too FWIW.

Inertia - Stable to Understable w/ flatter shoulder
Insanity - Slightly Understable (worn inertia)
Impulse - Understable (beat up inertia/insanity)

In my experience the Impulse is more understable.

I bagged the Inertia, then replaced it with the Insanity. I felt like the latter had more glide. I haven't bagged the Impulse, because it's a little more understable than I need. The Insanity hits a sweet spot for me, in that it shows a good amount of high speed turn, but it feels very controllable.

The Inspire is a solid driver that I bagged for a while, I just dropped it because my first Crave is getting to the point where I can just cycle those. But the two have an incredibly similar rim feel, which is nice.

Without having seen you throw and how your discs respond to your form, its tough to say which one would fill this slot best for you. I'd say the inspire in the least understable, Insanity in the middle, and impulse most understable. They will all hold a long, smooth anny.

If you can get your Craves in the 375-400' range I think you have the power to make any of these three drivers a valid option for you. If you lived in NC I could just let you try mine out!
