Default MVP Reactor

Been tossing an MVP Neutron Reactor for a few rounds. Digging the disc so it seemed like it should have its own thread.

MVP rating: 5 5 -0.5 1.5
Weights:165 - 177g
Diameter: 21.4cm
Height: 1.7cm
Rim Depth: 1.3cm
Rim Thickness: 1.4cm
Inside Rim Diameter: 18.5cm
Rim Depth / Diameter Ratio: 6.1%
Rim Configuration: 44.50
Flexibility: 9.87kg

Rating seems accurate to me. At my less-than-awesome distance I can hit it hard with no worries about the disc flipping. Mild but reliable fade when thrown flat. Holds an anny nicely, panning out late with enough height. Sidearm grip feels nice, and it comes out cleanly. Just seems like a robust, versatile, nearly stable workhorse midrange that does what I expect it to do.

Reactor is probably going to make my bag, replacing the Truth / EMac Truth.

I will be interested to hear others' impressions of this disc.

Have 3.
Eclipse is very flat but very overstable. Close to max weight.
Blank Neutron 174 is more OS than a new Buzzz.
Stock stamp 169 Neutron is more biddable. Not enough throws to render a full verdict, but this one is the closest to what I'd hoped for.
I really like the feel and speed of this mold, it's the best MVP mid yet, imo. Really interested to try a Hex and compare/contrast the two.

"Biddable" is an excellent description, and 169 to 170 Neutron is what I have been throwing. I probably don't have enough throws to render a strong verdict either, but some discs just seem to click quickly.

I did not realize the different plastics and weights/stamps flew so differently. Thanks, that's good to know.

Yes, I am very interested to hear how the Hex flies.

Have a couple max weights. Some of my straightest throws. Love this disc.

The only reactor I have is a 176+ eclipse... Hey it's not for me, a lighter one would probably be decent.. The glow alone is worth throwing it at dusk, but at that weight? Overstable to finicky, usually starts fading too fast, it's generally 30ft + further than I think it would be, but then if I hit a headwind it flips faster than a envy and when I'm looking for the stability it's gone with the wind. Does go deceptively far even on a hyzer.

Conclusion is I'll keep trying it, if I trip on a lightweight one then maybe, holding out for a hex.... but I bought two eclipse 2.0 envy at 174g.
