I'm really curious to see if the Nitro or Energy is more my style.
Anyone thrown both so far?

I've only thrown a super-domey Octane that was more OS than a Photon.

For father's day, I'm planning on getting my dad his own discs to play with. We go during the summer and I always build him a bag of my back ups, but there's some molds that I just don't have that would be great for him. Still working on form with him, but he's got a decent arm. 300 max, I would say.

So, what would you guys suggest for some good lower-arm-speed-friendly discs? I'm not going to do all MVP, but mostly gyro. Relay for straight-US (also enforces good form), Servo for OS, Orbital/Vanish for big shots (also enforces good form), maybe an Envy/Proxy for approach. I'm going to get an Aviar for putting and Buzzz for midrange, so I'm good with those two slots. It's just the drivers and possibly approach discs I'm looking to gyro for.

If he can throw 300', get a Crave, Relay, Buzz, Theory, Envy, Proxy, Buzzz, Aviar. You have every shot covered with that setup.

This. I can get my Crave out a little past 325 consistently with the occasional 350 foot stars aligning shot. This is pretty much my nutsac. I don't have a Theory in there. And I am trying out the Matrix in place of the Buzzz that's usually there. I also have a Resistor for utility (might try a Fireball). This setup has been doing so well for me lately that I sold my Mahal to a friend.

Volts are great go-to drivers for lower power players. I have a friend who throws a ion buzzz or volt on probably 75% of shots in a round and he doesnt carry anything faster or slower. Volt comes in lots of good plastic/wt options as well. Tesla is also worth looking at but on the lighter side. Both molds pair great with a slower US disc.

Proxy or envy are great choices and my buddy has been considering a proxy after seeing me crush it lately.

Relay is one of my favorite new MVP discs to come out in years. the theory is unique in its ability to handle lots of power while not be flippy yet still fly the same lower power US lines when finessed. GREAT mid to learn all throwing angles and get clean form without becoming uber frustrated trying to throw it.

If he likes beaded molds the tangent is another option for a slightly more stable theory like a faster seasoned low profile ion-ish flight.
