So I decided to give the Electron Envy a try (ive had it for a while just never really used it other than 2 rounds)

I took out my electron Atom because, well...overlap - basically its like an electron Atom, just different feel. Fresh its a lot like an atom, but once it gets some work man that E Envy becomes like a Proxy....which isn't a bad thing, haha I actually like it now. I used it for straight approaches and slight turnovers and long putts, I feel the E atom and E envy are almost interchangeable - E Envy is almost like a baseline proxy - the fade is really only apparent when it is new and is thrown with some touch. At High speed the E Envy goes straight with slight turn and minimal fade.

I like it - its almost like a baseline proxy - idk - its fun

Crave is the most laser straight FW they make IMO. More stable than a leopard, but will fly similar lines.

In plasma has a touch more glide and out of the box it is not as high speed stable as my neutron. For me it was reliable over-stable out of the box but quickly developed some turn that i could hyzer flip, holds flex lines longer, farther flying disc too because the extra glide.

In general it seems like plasma has a quicker break in

The plasma photon i have is around 170g and its red or orange, hard to tell because of the pearly effect

Getting back into playing after a new kid-related hiatus...

Are Fission Photons totally OOP? Forgive if this is answered earlier, but I'm like over a year behind here...

I think the only thing that's been said from MVP about them, is that they've been having problems with how the fizz is molding up. I don't think its been OOP'd… At least I hope not...

I mean for real.

I just did a quick sweep of the usual suspect online retailers, and there are none out there, and that might make me have to go on hiatus again, lol. Somehow I'm down to 1 of them in my inventory.

Yes the Crave seems pretty awesome and feels like it's a good Disc to cycle.. The one I've got is decent... I guess maybe not his main fairway but I could see swapping that Inspire for a Switch... I can't believe everyone hates them that much haha.... I might shelve it if they made a proton Relay.. My Relay developed a goofy and minor midflight turn that doesn't thread the trees like it used to... the Switch is more reliable for me.

Mydisc.ca has some fission Photons just from a quick google.. I know another Canadian place but it's secret I'm not posting it here haha but if you pm me they've got three left one in the 160's and one in 155 and a couple in the 140's. Same as MyDisc.ca stock hmmm I wonder if it's the same guys..

I've always scoffed at those who are looking for a magical disc, or stocking up on OOP stuff. But I'll tell you what, the 130's Fission Photon that I lost was a thing of beauty. Nothing I've thrown has been the same. I'd love for them to make more of those, but I may have let a unicorn go.

For me it's the ones @ 160+, but otherwise same deal.
