My main dis on the Wave is that it never fades back late in flight. Most of the ones I throw will turn all the way over without even trying to come back.

That said, I think the target audience for the Wave are guys who throw 350'ish. Any further than that the disc starts getting finicky.

That's why I love it! Hopefully I hate it by next summer.

Exactly. And it is a great driver for guys like me who are in that 350' range. If MVP had ever made a true gap filler between Photons and Waves, I would almost assuredly still be throwing gyro drivers.

Yeah it is a weird gap there. I don't really notice it but my arms kinda soft and I'm rarely subjected to much wind. I can use a fission photon (145g) or my fission Teslas (155/164) or my neutron Wave. I also think that's what they're doing with cosmic neutron

As always I'm excited for them to send out all these new releases they have hinted at. I think they've got some bombers in the wings ready to go! They're hitting more gyro glide than ever with the Ohm and I hear the Reactor. Finely tuned plastic!

That gap is really strange, especially since they could have used Axiom to fill it.

I'm hoping my Plaz Trace beats in to fill that gap.

They shipped super quick. The PLH on the CN is a tick higher than the Plaz. Both are light-years higher than my domey Proton.

Some fieldwork will tell me if they are the gap between my Fizzy Photon and the P Wave.

Here's how my Waves fly for me.

Proton: drift right fade back just fight of center

Cosmic Plasma: drift farther right fade back a bit more right of center than the Proton

Cosmic Neutron: drift right fade back just left of center

I'm not sure of the "cosmic" Plasma is any different the the plain Plasma, but they look sexy!

I threw them relative low, a bit more height and the would have faded more left.
