In other words, the Evidence is a power-specific straight flying mid, while the Proxy is a straight flyer for pretty much everyone.
I guess I must be throwing the Evidence perfectly every time then, good to know.

In my experiences, almost any disc thrown too high or at a lower power level will fade out more when compared to if they were thrown properly.

I was trying to edit this and somehow it got cut off...

I want to add that I'm usually not trying to power down my throws with the Evidence. If I want a shorter flight I'll typically just throw the Proxy at about the same power lever to achieve that instead of reaching for a mid and powering down.

The Evidence works great for me at my "longer Proxy" but to each his own.

Exactly. That's what makes the Proxy unique. You can throw it downhill with a 50'+ drop, and it will still go straight for 95% of the flight. You can throw it 150' or 300' and still get the same flight shape out of it -- straight. That's why my initial comment at the top of this thread was that the OP likely will not find anything that is truly a longer Proxy. It is unbelievable just how much OAT, hyzer release, anny release, etc that a Proxy will take and still fight to go straight. Evidences don't do that. I love my Evidences, and I've been bagging them for a couple years, but they aren't quite a longer Proxy.

You must be right and I must be wrong, my bad.

I hope the OP finds this mythical disc that flies like a Proxy but is definitely not an Evidence.

They work perfectly for me in that way but I guess not for everyone.

I use a Comet and Roc for longer flights of these. X Comet, hyzer flip. Star rancho roc. I don't care that no one likes that version of the roc - Domey and it glides.

Hey, quit talking the Ohm up until it either comes out in Plasma or Electron Firm. I am trying very hard to not spend money on a disc I know I am going to hate(due to plastic).

For my arm speed and throwing style, a Vector and seasoned Axis come the closest.

For most players I'd imagine the Tangent and Vector combo would fit the bill.

I have a Reactor arriving in a day or two, curious to see how it compares.

The release of the Reactor somehow slipped past me - would like to see a review video for sure, and your opinion as to whether it's MVP's intention to have this one sort of inherit the place of the old OOP mids.

We'll see. I like the idea of switching to a more modern profile for the Vector slot, but so far they haven't made a disc that flies quite as well for me. The Reactor is supposed to fly like a seasoned Vector, which is my favorite mid,so fingers crossed.

If we go a bit longer; would the crave fit the longer proxy role? It’s been a while since I’ve thrown one, but I recall the crave being a laser with good HSS and minimal fade. $0.02.
