If you're already thinking about it, just give Teleporting a go. I have the same baby related handicap going on but still was able to immediately squeak out more D from the Teleport than Octanes. I was afraid the rim would be too big but it's not that bad. High 160's or low 170's might be sweet.

With the Photons already on lock down as for controlled distance, the Teleport (class) would make more sense to bag than the 23mm class, which -unfortunately- I'm already pretty invested in. Damn MVP coming up with all this high speed shiz so fast

Yeah, I was thinking along these same lines. I do have one Octane, a LE Plasma, and it's double domey. I just don't do well with the domier driver setup. It sounds like this Teleport class is more on the standard MVP flat side of things.

I've got meat hooks, so no worries about rim width.

Maybe we could meet up sometime this month and you could try my pair of Teleports.

FTFM.

Haha, but for real, totally. If I can ever get a yard pass again, that is. I'll hit you up ahead of time...

Can anyone compare proton vs neutron vs fission? I've only thrown fissions in the low 160's and would like to get another couple of those and maybe a couple more in different weights and plastics. Can I expect a heavier proton to bring the beef?

Yep. I throw max weights around 500' and they don't really show any turn for me when new. I can use them for flex shots in the 425-500' range and trust them to come back.

Good mix of FH and BH shots in this video, mostly with max weights. Couple Fission throws towards the end if I remember correctly. Hole #5 is a great example of a long flex shot.

If you want a really beefy photon, you need to look for a nice flat one, whether its neutron or proton. If you can find a particle duality stamp, those are most OS I've seen.
