On that note....can anyone recommend a speed 11 stable/understable driver? A slightly faster insanity is really what I seek.
Plasma Wave would be my suggestion. The Axiom Vanish is more US than an Insanity.

My 165 neutron Wave was stable/understable out of the box, and my 171 proton got that way after taking one skip off of a sidewalk. So I will echo others and say Wave is what you want. Neutron if you want a flat one, or plasma if you want some dome.

According to that tho....my insanity is listed as a 11 speed, isn't it? And I don't think it really is....

When it came out, it was listed as a speed 10...which is what it really is

A Wave is really a speed 11.

I find MVP discs to be really tough to grade on the traditional speed scale. In terms of rim width, the Photon/Wave/Vanish class is an 11. But given that the MVP/Axiom discs are typically flat and have so much weight in their rims, they fly faster than other discs with the same size rim. That gyro effect also seems to neutralize the perceived overstability if overthrown and perceived understability if underthrown.

In my bag the Wave is a neutral control driver. As far as what speed that is...?

I would really like to see another run of Soft Neutron Ions.
