Now that I think about it my Wave has similar throwability to the Photon Fission and it's 13g heavier and fresher.
I really don't like throwing anny, which somewhat limits the usefulness of truly overstable discs for me. Would much rather throw something flippy on a deep hyzer than throw something OS on an anny.

A Fission Photon that flies like a slightly more beefy Wave sounds perfect Hope the next run molds up that way.

I just really prefer the feel of the 21.5 class gyros so I keep trying to find something to fill that gap.
a trace fills the gap between a wave and photon. or at least it has for me.


I throw only traces as my main distance driver (I have lots to choose from in terms of what I need it to do. weights, dome, plh, mf, plastics...etc). usually use fairways or mids off the tee. sometimes an envy or proxy. everyone is different with their approach to the game. this is my approach to tackling 330-400ft holes.

I had asked about the Trace earlier, but the general consensus was that the handfeel is way different than the Axiom/MVP 21.5mm drivers. That was a turnoff to me. Since I've already got a couple Trespasses that fly at that stability (but obviously with a way different handfeel), I'm really looking for something that will feel like my Photon/Defy/Wave(s)/Vanish but fly like a Trespass. Hence the endless search for a ridiculously beefy Wave or a flippy Photon.

Sigh. One of the main selling points, for me, is MVP had the best 150 class discs. I don't throw drivers, fairway or distance, in heavy weights.

To me, a max weight fairway is about 168. Other than a roller disc, max weight on a distance driver is 164.

I get my distance with clean form, not power. This heavy Fission is useless to me.

I thumbed through the discs at the pharmacy and I managed to find a 162 resistor, purple neutron.... sold. I haven't been able to impulse shop for years out here there's never anything I want to throw. My Mike C 173 will stay as a wall hanger without the temptation to throw it.

I'm still dabbling with my overstable but not ridiculous slot kinda hoping to match my 160 FB pro which is a champ FL I hear

How's it going to measure up?

Still haven't found anything that compares to my neutron relay, looks like MVP is going to continue to stay in my bag. Wish they made the relay in more plastics or maybe with a special stamp some time.

That could have been a jungle river full of piranhas and crocs and I would have still done the same thing!!!!
