Agreed! I think plasma is still my favorite flavor, but I lost it and haven't been able to find a replacement. I have a mid 160s fission that flies pretty darn close. A cosmic neutron makes for a slightly more OS compliment.

Also have a 149 sitting here begging for airtime!

Yep. Have Justice, Method, Harp. Used to have Verdict. I
My natural release is more hyzer/flat, which is odd because many players seem to flex FH. Anyway, I can hit a line and get better distance with a more flippy disc like Essence, Surge. By ‘better’ I mean maybe 300’ if I am lucky, versus 200’ with a Justice. My FH game is 200’ and in. I do flick a LOT in that distance, like most approaches with a Berg or Envy. Those shots I love a floaty turnover, but not really a flex.

I've never been a Wave fan myself. I find them too flat, flippy, and somewhat glideless. It's like a much lousier version of the Tern.

I did find a Photon Wave on the course one time and smash it over 450', but that's pretty much the only time a Wave impressed me.

If I want MVP Distance I'll throw the Catalyst or Relativity. On the Axiom side you have the Mayhem and Excite. All of those are, IMO, better than the Wave.

The wave is best suited to sub 400' players, it's magic for guys in the 350 range.

Agreed, Envy. I have no use for them, even Proton, but they remind me of when I started throwing distance drivers (1x Beast) and how awesome it felt to be able to get one to behave properly. One buddy uses a wave for FH, and I'm jealous of how smooth he is. I learned forehead with really OS stuff, to my detriment. Good mold.

I dunno, probably your normal weight. ?

I have a FR neutron 155 good dome reasonable stability.. The closest complement in fission is 164ish, I found the fission to be least stable, then plasma.. But that may be what you want.... I rarely throw drivers heavier than 168ish.

165g Star Wraith or a 160g Star Shrike - only on windless days, probably a bit longer than the wraith

If I get it on the right angle, it's my new Odin. Similar to a Thrasher flight and fast. For more reliable max distance, gstar Destroyer.
