I think he is referring to the Photon class. The Tesla class is 20mm I think, right?

Hmm I didn't think there was that big a gap between those classes... #memoryproblems.

But I was right that he was referring to the Photon class...

Quote:
The MVP Photon is the first 21.5 cm distance driver in the MVP line. This disc is described as a longer Tesla, and will exhibit some max distance generating high speed turn for power throwers. The Photon is naturally wind resistent for average players and works well for sidearm throws.
Whatever they call it now, originally they called it 21.5mm

That's a typo on MVP website. It is a 20mm wing. Let's look back at the original announcement...

"The Impulse, Motion, and Tesla along with the Inertia are part of the 20mm-wing distance driver class from MVP Disc Sports. This class of controllable distance drivers will have a wide weight range from 155g to 175g..."


Infinite has them at 21mm

Yeah, I was referring to the Photon/Wave/Vanish class. Didn't realize they simply call those 21mm now.

And I agree that the Photon/Wave class aren't quite a max distance set of discs. They're a nice class though, because I can still get them up to speed even on days when I'm not throwing as powerfully, or when I want to back off a little to better control a shot but I don't want to disc all the way down to a fairway driver. Wave is probably a Top 5 mold for me.

they really need a 22mm class (speed 12) destroyer clone

i just picked up a 162g (lightest i could find) firm electron envy for putting, excited to see how a lighter one glides. Someone was saying a while back the light envy is better for putting. hoping to replace my heavier 173g
