I used Aim’s well-seasoned 167 Neutron Tesla for headwind drives at a breezy ice bowl this weekend. Normally using an untested disc at a tournament is a bad idea, but Tesla does what it does pretty reliably.

The seasoned 167 Neutron seemed to stay straight a little line longer compared with my fresh 157 Protons, but I did not get in enough throws to be sure. Scuffed-up Neutron definitely felt grippier than Proton with 15F temperature and snow on the ground.

Thanks Aim!

See, there is some truth to the stuff I post.

Glad i was able to find a sub 170g for you. I had 4 other pinks and each scaled at 174g+.. that was the last one I weighed -- happy its found a home! IMO its really not even that used either so give it work!! I have some MVPs which make that thing look beautiful.

I think I am going to just trash one of these to see if it will get flippy. Have some beat ones but they still fly pretty OS.





At least until MVP/Axiom release their new drivers

my loose-plate teslas with the dome are the straightest drivers i've ever thrown for the rim width. i'm tempted to put up a wanted thread for low PLH teslas with the loose flight plate and dome, but it's kind of niche. haven't had any luck finding more in the stores. i don't really find myself using them a lot, which is kind of funny since i like them so much, but whatever. i stand by my assertion they are very similar to my seasoned gpd. just straaaaaaaaaaight. a little flip, some fade.

no, you cannot have my "loose" coopers. I hear you for sure but even they don't have that same flight as a beat up star plastic kind of driver, yeeeeee kno? My super beat LE nikko is the same way but its taken well since the first release and MANY throws to even come close to what those were off the shelf (lower PLH too tho so that makes sense) ... ill mash a pair into my garage floor and let you throw them' not going to play anytime soon with this cold coming back lol.

My 3 Neutron Tesla's all have very high PLH and are devoid of any curvature of the wing...and they are overstable as all get out. Matched one of them up to a bud's Tesla on the course, and he was like "oh wow!" My Tesla's have been relegated to exclusively headwind duty, and they shine in that role.

I literally spent a whole day trashing one - bending it, tomahawking it into the driveway, throwing it down the middle of the street - and it is still beef. Best of luck to ya!

Yeah couldn't agree more... if what I had to do to my crave to get it to have some high speed turn is any indicator... well im ready to do some serious damage. If people only witnessed what I have done to a motion in the driveway and it doesn't fly any different. Ill report in!
