Default Love MPLS

I use my MPLS for hyzer flip to straight BH and Max weight seasoned crave for straight flat FH. I don't hyzer flip forehands so if you do you might not love the crave for FH. I use my relay almost exclusively for annys but it does hyzer flip to straight okay but is a little flippier than a MPLS so get a max weight relay.

Hey man the Relay is the place to start.... Get a 170 or + I'd say.. Its a sweet disc and a Gyro head staple... next step up imo is a Neutron Vanish more distance but suitable for the same shot..

I don't think the switch is the answer for your question... I love mine for FH and step up from the Relay in stability, but it bites hard after 85% of its flight.. You can get a cool late panning hyzer or a fast plant upshot. The late stability doesn't mean it can't be controlled.. Useful for me... and somewhat unique.

Was just having an itch to try something new. I'll probably just stick with the Polaris.

I'll put my paws on a Relay and a Switch next time i'm in the shop though.

The Switch sounds kind of interesting, looks kind of Eagle-L-ish. Have a couple of Eagle-Ls that I like the flight of, but they're champion, and me and champ plastic don't get along.

Signal is way more understable than a Polaris LS. I loved my 1st run Polaris LS until I lost it. I am still sad.
I would go Relay for this spot too.

Have you tried an Inspire? I haven't thrown one in a long time, but I thought it was between a Crave and a Switch

I was also thinking Inspire. I've never thrown a Cheetah, but I keep a Polaris and an Inspire in my stack of fieldwork discs. Both are in the low 160s and fly comparably for me.

be warned a switch has a lot of turn and a lot of bite like a very exaggerated eagle x

either way a relay is a great addition to a mvp bag and great for woods golf i just wouldnt throw one into a moderate to heavy headwind

It's been a long while since I carried a Polaris. It's also been a few years since I retired my Cheetahs.

I'd have to say a Switch or Relay, too. The Switch always seemed a bit beefier than the Cheetah to me, while the Relay seens to be a bit less. The Relay is prolly the best fit.

Get an Inspire. It's exactly what you are describing, hyzer flip with a little fade at the end. You don't want to get max weight though, get 165-170 max. They get much closer to a Crave at max weight for some reason.
