I always figured I'd pair a trace or photon with mine, but I've found the cosmic n wave does well enough. I disc up to a mayhem for stiff headwinds and forehand distance

I got the fission Defy, got a neutron volt instead of the plasma which was somewhat of a bummer since I have a bendy james. But I think i will use this neutron to beat up and keep the bendy james fresh.

Same experience here. I know the Defy was supposed to fly like a beat-in Photon, but that wasn't my experience at all. For me, a Photon and Defy fly about the same distance before the fade kicks in, and then the Defy fades violently left while the Photon penetrates forward in the fade a little better. Very similar discs, although he difference in fade does give me a few extra feet with a Photon.

In fairness, what showed up in my Gyro box is a fission Defy which are not advertised as an option on the MVP/Axiom sites. I would need to weigh it to see what I am working with but a 150-160g fission Defy may be a whole different animal. That said the stock numbers are 11 5 -1 2.5 for the photon and 11 5 -1 3 for the defy. It looks, by all accounts, to be a bit more stable than the photon rather than the other way around. I will need to field test to see if I am keeping or selling.

We’ll, played a course in WV with my brother in law this morning, and the shop had a couple in stock. Call it courtesy or scientific inquiry or whatever, but now I have a lavender Neutron at 173. Will look forward to airing it out when I get home.

Despise the autocorrect for “well” but otherwise stand by the previous. He had a couple Servos that I might swing back to try. Haven’t seen those in the wild and wondering where they’ll fit with the Crave and Clash.

And… the Servos are in hand but will have to wait a month for their official introduction under the tree.

Really thought the M1 could be a solution for the Bard being OOP, but they turn too much after not a ton of wear.
I have a Bard I’d be willing to trade you if you’re looking for them still.

Interesting. That bolded part made me check the Axiom website, because they originally advertised the Defy as a beat-in Photon. There must have been enough complaints about the misleading flight description that they decided to update it. Now their website says:

"The Defy is straight with a nice bite of overstability at the end, and is best described as a more stable MVP Photon or a longer Axiom Clash"

So I guess I can't really complain about mixed signals anymore. The flight ratings and disc description both now show that the Defy is a Photon with a harsher fade, which is accurate. Glad to see they have corrected things.

The Defy conversation is interesting. Had a Photon that I couldn’t bond with and it made an appearance at the trade in counter today. Would agree that the Defy’s probably a bit more OS, but not by much. Moreover, it’s a better FH fit in the first field day yesterday than either the Photon or the Thrill.

I picked up a spare Reactor and a Deflector to try out as a utility complement to the Pyro.
