Yes... I would prefer a OS putter or a slow mid for this slot but everyone has their preferences and this is a hole in their lineup.

The Vector is not very OS. It's basically a Roc3. But yes, a more utility midrange is lacking in the lineup.

Stop it. Vector is OS. Its more like an OS roc3 honestly.

This thing sounds like a pointless mold throwers dream!

I think it kind of depends on the Vector. I've had a flatter proton that was a lot like a Roc3, but I've also had a neutron with a little dome that flew more like my USDGC champ rancho Rocs. I'd say their stability varies with the dome (kind of like with Roc3s although a really domey Roc3 can be hard to find). I'm guessing this new mold will fill the slot the Tensor was supposed to fill, hopefully with a more comfortable rim.

Right. In general vectors are more of a domey roc3.

The tensor was always weird to me. Ill be curious how fast this mold truly is.

My good vector test is they spin freely on center dome when set upside down.

Thanks, on paper it doesn't look like a huge hole. Brutus, are you hoping it will take over for the Wasp in your lineup?

Well not a hole as much as the tensor just isn't a great feeling disc in the hand, and a lot of people wont bag it for that reason. The wasp I have is pretty beat, more like a neutral buzz. I don't really use an OS mid right now, I had a BuzzOS in the bag till a couple weeks ago when I realized I didn't use it very much. Now I cover those shots with a Soft Envy or a powered down resistor/motion depending on the shot required. Which is why I was hoping for the fairway, for this event, to be a beefy whippet like disc. So I could remove the resistor and not need a OS mid at all.



Now if/when they release an envyOS, I will be all over that....

I'm not saying the Vector isn't OS. It's just not utility OS. It's not even Verdict OS, which is a true 0,3 and I would call more OS than a Roc3.

And Aim, I'm not trying to argue, just curious on this one. Isn't the Roc 3 just a Roc with a flattened top? So wouldn't a domey Vector be closer to a regular Roc? I know the only Vector I ever owned looked exactly like my friend's Roc+ in PLH, Profile and dome. That Vector had some fade, but wasn't all that HSS for me. IDK, maybe my form. You can ask Mike C. I traded it to him.

Vectors seem a little faster but yes very similar in shape.. Sort of depends on "the" roc too i would assume.

Roc[*rancho] vs vector

Very true. There are so many different Rocs out there the only way to know how most fly is just to take them out to the course and throw them.
