Default MVP closest to a new DX Cheetah/Polaris LS?

What does MVP/Axiom have that is closest in flight to a new max weight DX Cheetah or seasoned Polaris LS?

I use these for woods golf. Back hand and forehand, low line shots in the 270-300ft range that I don't want to try with a mid.

Not looking for insane glide with sneaky distance, more of a range-able, predictable point and shoot disc that I can work some line with.

Yeah, I've already did the whole inbounds and various flight chart things, just looking for real world info.

Haven't thrown any Gyro fairways yet, so looking for some input.

Thanks in advance

There isn't a direct comparison. The closest would be a heavy Relay or a lighter Switch for the Polaris LS.
I haven't thrown a cheetah, so I can't help there

Really? I feel the Crave is so much longer than a Polaris LS....and straighter.

The Crave is an awesome woods fairway driver though...cant go wrong with having one in the bag.

idk why would anyone throw a crave and not just get a volt why would anyone throw mvp and not throw a volt why isnt everyone throwing a volt

pair up a relay with a volt and you have all wooded shots covered and throw in an ion

I bag a Relay, Crave and Volt. The Volt won't hold an anhyzer as long as the Crave...which won't hold one as long as a Switch.

The Switch has a harder fade from a flat throw though...which is more like the Polaris LS.

And neither turn as much as a Polaris LS will.

What about a Signal? (I haven't thrown either a Cheetah, or Polaris, but from the OP, it sounds like it could work)

Why I don't bag one. The Polaris LS sits between a Crave and a Switch. It has the Switchs turn and the Crave fade... MVP just doesn't have a direct comparision.

Signal is way more understable than a Polaris LS. I loved my 1st run Polaris LS until I lost it. I am still sad.
