I'm starting to love my reactor. It fits what my Big Z Buzz used to be, now its borderline Buzz SS after many tree thumps.

For the Buzzz, you'll want to test out the Matrix and Reactor. Reactor tends to be straighter and more release sensitive. The Matrix will flex more left to right more but will cover form flaws better. I like the Matrix cause I can give it some OAT and achieve fairway distances. With the Reactor, I had a tendancy to turn it over when I added OAT. It'd bomb when I didn't.
Mostly spike hyzers and flex shots. I tried the Entropy but it's too dumpy, not enough glide for me. I'm also looking at trying out some stuff for the Buzzz OS, not the regular Buzzz. If I were to replace that, it would be the reactor.

have started throwing the N insanity was how the P and PL compare stability wise.

I finally got my CN Photon SE today. On the table the shape is pretty much identical to my Plasma Photon. The only difference in feel is that CN is stiffer/firmer. Will see tomorrow if theres any difference in flight. Hopefully a bit more stable.
It sure is very pretty:



The CN Wave I got is surprisingly flat, Almost as flat as my old Neutron Wave.
It's parting line is about 2.5mm higher than my Plasma Wave. So hopefully that means it's also more stable than the Plasma. I shall see again tomorrow.

That is a sweet looking photon!!!! I don't know if plasmas are the most stable or not, but curious.

Hey I was looking at the eclipse proton pilot.. It's listed as 2/5/0/1 on the disc yet from what I read here it sounds like it might be the most neutral flyer.. Just curious what the word was, I'm essentially looking for a glow Ohm. Any comparisons?

My new Electron Firm is rated 2/5/-1/1 and I was throwing it arrow straight. I was surprised it had no turn.

I've been carrying Envys for over 2 years. Tried all the plastics. Several weights and colors. I just sold my last one. I'm officially over them. Entropy took over my OS duties and...

I'd had one of the early Electron Atoms when I first switched over to MVP from Innova 3 years ago. I liked it but it puddled up quick and I hate that. I never tried another atom because everyone kept recommending I move to the Envy.

About 3 weeks ago I picked up a Neutron Atom. Mind blown. Where as the Envy is very resistant to angles without torquing on it, the Atom flies more like a Matrix (and for that matter Reactor) where a slight bit of release angle will turn the disc. For a player like myself who throws a limited number of molds, having that ability to throw angles is key. Atom has given me a range putter where I can easily use my wrist to produce hyzer / stable / anhyzer shots.

Atom is also crushing it. I found the Envy in Neutron to be kind of a dead disc. Limited range. In Eclipse it was better and Plasma it was best. Neutron Atom out ranges all of them by about 20-30 feet putting it in Neutron Ohm territory. But unlike the Ohm, it has fade at the finish. I kept sending the Ohm past baskets where I seem to be parking the Atom. I'm pretty surprised this disc wasn't more liked.

I will share a tiny bit of Neutron Atom love with you... traitor

When I picked my putter out of everything I had here, the HOC Neutron Atom was a close contender against my plasma envy and well loved proton Envy's... but my electron Atom kinda soured it so...... Haha now I've got the Ohm... ThrowaXXX is coming. Haha.

Kinda disappointed I didn't rekindle my Anode love back then but results are what count.

Seriously though I can't touch the Envy for putting, but the Ohm is too nice for one and two disc rounds to put down. It's where some of my 2-3 year Envy are almost worn to.

Having a battle of conscience, my buddy's birthday is coming up and I only have sweet discs that are unthrown, I think I'm giving him my 155 SE Fission Wave... cuz he's not getting any of my SE Envy's.

Default My experience with MVP/Axiom putters

Atoms - Electrons were my first MVP putters, but i kept missing putts right as a left handed player. About a month ago I changed to El Proxy's. With a same style and power they fly more straight and have less fade, so they seem to stick better for me.
Neutron Atom - I have two, but im not bagging them. They fly Pretty much like the Proxys and I like the feel of El Proxy more than the N Atom.

Ohm - I bagged one for medium power straight and anhyzer throws. However, it is very release angle and off axis torque sensitive, so I am now keeping one El Proxy for those shots instead.

Envy - I bag one max weight Plasma. Its very stiff for a plasma and handles hyzers like a champ. Also perfect for 75-85m arrow straight shots when thrown flat. No doubt my favorite throwing putter.

Entropy - I bag CN and it's my go to approach putter when hyzer or S line is available. If not, then I approach with my P Envy. Entropy is a perfect approach disc, because its stability and low glide pretty much never does anything surprising.

I tend to throw a lot of anhyzer shots so I need a disc that holds those lines well. With envy I'd torque on it to achieve the line - but that would require more height. With the atom, all I do is apply wrist angle and it does what I want.
