A little turn but very manageable and predictable, and it this keeps up, it might challenge the CN for the top of the heap.

I ended up snagging my local shop's last mid-160's Fission Wave. That gives me two backups for the one I am bagging. It's just exactly what I look for in a workhorse distance driver -- comfortable grip that releases consistently for me, manageable amount of turn with low-to-moderate fade, rewards exceptional throws with some added distance, and doesn't overly punish bad throws. I am fighting the urge to buy a stack of 5-6 of these, because I know that I grow frustrated with distance drivers more easily than any other discs. I've learned my lesson based on the stack of Trespasses sitting in my basement that I now wish was only half as tall. But man, this disc just seems to be a goldilocks for how I'm throwing right now.

I've been playing Purple 7 at our Buhlow course for as long as it's been a course(2013). At age 54, I just threw my longest drive there with a low 160s Fission Wave. It was down wind and turned just a little then rode for a while. Right at 400'.

And... cut roll straight to the pond at Alexander Park. Entirely my bad for not trusting it to turn and forcing the issue with angle out of the hand. It was consistently longer for me than either the CN or the Proton by 20ft or so.
