I got a Deflector to test as a replacement for my Resistor, and they fly pretty similar to me, but I think I like the Resistor better. Mostly I like that I can get it in lighter weights. But the thinner rim is also a little more comfortable on the Resistor. If they run a stock stamp Plasma Resistor that I can get in the 150 class, it will be the clear winner for me.

I use my resistor like a mid quite a bit.
I carry both discs in my bag, neutron and around 175g.
Resistor is super flat and firm, Deflector is similar but has a tiny dome and plastic is softer. They feel quite alike in the hand.

Flightwise theyre quite similar too, Deflector is used on shorter max fade holes 'cause I have easier time gauging the short distances with it, if you're better at controlling your fairway discs than me then I imagine Resistor could be enough for you.

Oh and Deflector skips less for me than the Resistor, perhaps 'cause I tend to throw the latter harder and the plastic is so firm?

Firmness does help with skips but it is more about the wing shape.

Resistors season so well. My main one has lost some HSS over the past few years but is still plenty OS & dependable. Some molds lose value over time IMO but this is one that I think gets even more useful. Plus, it's so easy to replace. Anyone here have a hard time finding another completely flat Resistor? I've owned 4 & they're all identical.

Question possibly for the Resistor folk or possibly for GYRO heads in general - I picked up a N resistor recently with a little shimmer in the neutron portion, likely mixed with Plasma. I noticed that it creaks a bit when I apply torsion with my hands, twisting the rim back and forth on either side. Anyone notice this on any MVP discs?

I've never come in contact with another disc that does this; I figure maybe the rim overmold didn't form as good of a bond as normal. I would not anticipate any issues, as I haven't noticed any visible separation in the plastic or anything. Just curious.

Its possible I guess. Never noticed the sound myself but its possible that its just something the plastic does naturally. Look at it under the light and see if you can find the seam where the overmold itself fused into a solid piece. I've seen pics of a few that weren't completely joined(they were Axiom though, so it was much easier to spot the seem in a colored rim) at that spot that might be rubbing together making the noise? But I havent seen any that didn't have a solid bond to the core.

Would a Resistor fit well in between Zone and Volt ranges? Essentially as a OS mid/short fairway that my Zone doesn't cover

Yes, that's exactly what I use mine for... sidearm throws between a PD and a Tank. Or BH headwind midrange duties.
