Across all new discs? Not specific to mold _____?

Also, I'm a moron and skipped the Proton part of bagging the Crave. Currently have two in there and own more..all from no specific run, dealer, or color scheme

There's a difference?
Man o Man, that old Proton was awesome stuff. It was so much better than Neutron.
When this fad with with soft butter plastic blew up, MVP made it gummy and flexy.

Now the Proton is so soft that it vacuums locks if one has sweaty hands. It warps up if one uses a fork or sabre grip to the point that the disc twists off the hand on release.

I don't use power grips often, nor do I use pinch grips. Those seem to work better with soft plastic.

Sorry for the rant, I just want the old Proton back.

My first Crave was the Watermelon Proton. Still my favorite even after owning 2 Neutrons and 3 Plasmas.

I am too scared to throw it now after losing my Solar Spinner Clash.

The sparkle resistor I have with a '16 circuit stamp is a stiffer proton. Probably not as stiff as the first release eclipse volt I had a awhile back though...That thing was a plate and very slick. Lost it right about the time it started to get a little tacky...

I am pretty sure all their discs use the same Proton blend. I haven't bought a new Proton in the last year though, so they may have modified it to be stiffer again. Last one I felt in store though was a Mayhem that felt just as gummy and flexible as the N.

Its not an issue. Sure a run of matrix sucked and few others like sodter neutron fireballs etc but all my new high speed proton are very firm and durable. Any new ions g2g same with photons and volts.......

The Proton Atom was worse than the Matrix. Good to know they have firmed back up.
