most are pretty OS until seasoned. Basically just a broken in motion so yeah. When you mash one 350'+ they straighten out.

Did I get a super freaky one or am I just not throwing it hard enough? Would it matter if I try proton or fission? Anything in particular I can do online to try to get a domey one? Local stores don't stock mvp.

I was expecting it to fly somewhat similar to a saint, which I can get to 360ft. Any other recommendations?
Yeah no Tesla will fly like a saint unless it's super beat or maybe super light. The Tesla is more similar to a PD or Star Thunderbird. Maybe try a Volt.

Ah man, I was going based on this http://www.inboundsdiscgolf.com/cont...127028777921OO

I guess it still fits a slot I didn't have filled yet. I'll give it a while to beat in some more.

AIM says Volt is the best thing since electricity...ask him. I don't throw blunt edged drivers.

When I threw a Volt, it flew a lot like a Star Valkyrie for me. It had a nice turn and then a nice fade back to center for a full S curve out to maybe 375 at most (for me). It was definitely fairly long for a 9 speed disc. I have heard that some of the newer Neutron Volts can be a little more OS though. Aim might have a more complete recommendation in terms of plastic and weight for you.

MVPs charts are accurate. Those are not really all that great. No tesla line from the MVP chart at any power looks like that nor has any tesla of wxyz flavor ive thrown.

Volts are the slower/straighter cousin. And i throw aces with them

my max volt throw on flat ground is around 400.

I still wish MVP charts had distances on them.

Not really needed at all when a chart with distances dont show how a disc will fly. People can throw a 450' torque flex shot but that isn't about the designed flight. At max power vs low power is what MVPs charts show and most peeps here are not close to the end of the max lines. Myself included.

I remember reading that the fission volt (or maybe photon) had two different cores to stretch out the weight range. The heaviest disc with the lightest core was 159g. I can't find this information on the Fission Tesla. Does anyone know if there a different cores and, if so, what the max weight on the lightest one is?
