Default 2019 MVP Circuit

I am playing in a Circuit event Saturday. How are the plastics flying and feeling compared to production runs?

I have no reference for the Pyro or Trace but the cosmic Arom was a touch more stable than my other Atoms.
The Trace had good glide but a harsher fade than my Wraith...but the Wraith comes in so many stabilities, who knows.
The Pyro was too flexible to be a proper OS disc. Not impressed at all.
None of these discs will make my bag. If MVP is trying to get new players to switch out their bag, this was a stike out. At least one of the discs should have been understable. The saving grace was at least the Atom was a straight flyer, I leaned on driving with it a lot.

The small metal mini as the only item I will use from the player pack as it is much easier to carry in a pocket than a standard mini.

I did enjoy the event even as I did not like the discs.

Agreed I was not a fan of the discs this year. Our event was in the woods, and I always throw understable plastic on that course. Even my Atom was overstable, at least on the first 16 holes. It softened a bit after I hit a tree or 2, by then it was too late. I tweeked my shoulder trying to force the disc to do things it didnt want to do in the woods.

Yeah, we played on a heavily wooded course as well. I don't have much power in my flick so I found myself throwing lefty on dogleg right holes. Even the Atom would not turn over.
Good thing I am somewhat ambidextrous....somewhat

I am a big fan of the Prism Neutron Pyro. For the moment, it has kicked the Deflector out of my bag.

Are you forehand dominate? You may just have a lot more power than me.

I took it and the Trace back out today. The Trace is just too much beef for my backhand but I did find I could use the Pyro for placement forehand upshots. I still prefer the Entropy for that shot, so it's not going to make the bag.

I can flick flexible plastics but my backhand grip was crumpling the rim of the Pyro.

I wouldn't say I'm forehand dominant, but since Sept of 2017, I've worked very hard to make my forehand about 45% of my game to 55% backhand. If I have to drive for distance, I'm going to go backhand unless the line is clearly a forehand. If I have to forehand for distance, I can probably get 275-300 feet, provided I don't mess the shot up. Accuracy is still something I'm working on. Don't get me wrong, I never fear using the forehand, but every now and then I might give it too much room to work.

I get a lot more distance of the Pyro than the Entropy, and I think the Pyro fades harder than Entropy if you release it flat or with hyzer. Conversely, the Deflector wants to fade very fast even when I put power on it. Which is sometimes a good thing, but I think I have more versatility over all pairing the Pyro with the Entropy as opposed to the Deflector.
