You'll know it as soon as you look at one in person. The wing is like the orbitals little brother.

Yeah, I can't control mine, and I'm pretty sure it's 175. The Relay comparison is from my buddy who's thrown both. I haven't, but want to try a max wt Relay. I'd love to find something between a new Switch and this Signal. Basically a seasoned Switch off the shelf.

I think it's a good first hyzer-flip disc for newer players, and like Bro D described it last week, if your woods game is all about controlled hyzer flips into every possible line, this would be a killer disc for that.

I just don't have the hyzer game to make it work for me.

Signal's a worn Leo, or a slightly seasoned Pro Leo, where Relay is very JLSish. I loved Signal immediately cuz I bagged Leos with that flight, but I know it'll be beyond utility use for some people.

So if I pull out my old DX Leo, it might be a good sub to practice for my upcoming Circuit in July?

So many flavors of Leo so it's hard to say for sure, but yeah if you've got non-premium Leos or worn JLS to work with, those are probably the closest things to use for practice. A really light Relay might give you some of that, too. I was basically doing Signal stuff with my low-160s Relay before.

Someone talk me through Volts. How do the flights compare between Neutron, Proton, Eclipse and Plasma? I have thrown a Neutron Volt before. Neutron is Champish IIRC. What are Eclipse, Plasma and Neutron like in feel compared to other brands plastic?

Volt stability scale from my experience. Overstable to less stable:

Eclipse/proton>neutron>plasma>early run lower weight neutron.

Eclipse and proton are translucent(champish) plastic. Eclipse rims glow. The newer proton has been feeling kind of gummy.

Neutron is similar to star. Most of the neutron Volts I've had were stiffer. Neutron is my all around favorite plastic.

Plasma is gummies and swirlier neutron. Plasma molds will usually have a bit less overall stability and maybe more dome(jury's still kind of out on that)

Flat = slightly OS
Dome = stable to shallow turn with softer fade

I ordered some volts directly from factory which i posted in the volt thread re:dome. A volt in general is a volt except the rare lighter FRs and the dome vs flat variances. The protons i ordered had more dome vs any of the plasmas i ordered when released.

I like all the volts. They all fly great and feel/look just as well.

I wish someone locally sold MVP (hell I wish anyone locally sold any of my discs other then the Polecat) so I could look at them.

Man, I've been really debating breaking out some volts and putting them back in the bag. Used to bag 3 plus an under stable compliment but I've been using a resistor/crave/relay combo and it's one of my favorite fairway setups ever.
