eh yeah unfortunately like the inertia/insanity kind of thing. sure the defy might be a hair less LSS but yes they are the same diff when ITB and not throwing 400'+ I never have found a huge difference being such a hair splitter mold it all depends on dome/wt etc youuuuuuu know.

Yeah, the Defy and Photon fill the same slot for me in same weight/same plastic for my arm speed. Both discs fly straight the same distance, but once the Defy starts fading is just falls out of the sky whereas the Photon has a longer sweeping fade. On an identical throw, I'd expect my Photon to finish about 5-10' longer as well as 5-10' further left. So really, the Defy is just a not-as-good version of a Photon, not a "beat in" Photon like Axiom was shooting for.

The difference between the Motion and the Fireball is the same as well. For me, I can bag a Motion but the Fireball is a useless disc.

So I was reading somewhere I think it was in Marmoset sweet dye thread about MVP Fanpage on Facebook so I thought cool and joined it. I was immediately disgusted with the pile of idiots on there and useless unskilled blather. Like I know we all are prone to rambles and misinformation but that was an experience I can only equate to talking to a ten year old who's insistently telling you about discs.. Sooooo painful! One guy asked how a glow Envy threw compared to an electron, the answer was "bout the same" I was tempted to correct it and realized I don't have time for a pile of idiots.

I feel that way about Facebook in general. So I no longer partake in the books of the face....

I was just on Facebook checking road conditions etc, see if there was any Intel on the power outage.. I looked in on that page again out of a morbid curiosity. YouTube comments are bad too... "Idiocracy" is proving more prophetic than satiric.

God loves stupid people it's why he made so many of them!

Don't really want to start a debate with everyone but I have to correct this statement a bit...
