My Wrath's are Tesla OS...maybe a little better glide. Yep, all are good discs.

The Defy is straighter, and for longer, than any Wrath/Tesla I've thrown. Great driver...why no love for it here?

Wow. I swear I read 2 Proxies there this morning.

Maybe I got an oddball OS Defy. Been trying to season the thing for a month (hyzer spikes, another guy with a massive FH throwing into trees, lots of field work and tree hits) and it's a laser beam for 350 then fades and does so commandingly, no matter how hard I throw it. Crave goes further than the Defy for me. 168 N
Also should have corrected myself, the Defy basically is a wide rimmed volt to me. And I throw DD's over 400 consistently. I'm no cannon but I'm no noodle arm either

Thanks for all the good answers .

I bought some new discs today, what do you think of the bag now?

Bought: Amp, Inertia, Insanity, Inspire

Few questions:

* Insanity vs Inertia, How similar are they?
* Should i bag Fission Tesla and N Tesla instead of a Wrath? Or just keep the Wrath and kick out tesla.
* Mvp Amp, do you experts think it should have a spot in my bag, or is it just unnecessary?
* I have not thrown the Matrix yet and want to check with you guys, how OS is this midrange?

I dont want to much overlaps.


Putting Putter:
Pure Zero Hard

Throwing Putter:
Neutron Soft Proxy 175g
Neutron So4ft Envy 175g
Electron Atom (beat in, slightly us) 175g

Midranges:
Neutron Theory 175g
Neutron Alias 175g
Proton Matrix 175g
DD Lucid Justice (Utility Disc, very OS)

Fairway Drivers:
Neutron Inspire 172g (for US)
Neutron Crave 172g
Neutron Amp 170g
Proton Volt 171g
Plasma Volt 175g
Fission Volt 165g
Neutron Shock 170g

Distance Drivers:
Proton Inertia 172g
Proton Inertia 170g
Proton Insanity 170g (just ordered, wanted to try this)
Neutron Wrath 173g
Fission Telsa 163g
Neutron Tesla 168g
Neutron Fireball 172g
Fission Photon 166g
Fission Photon 169g
Neutron Photon 168g
Proton Octane 168g
Neutron Nitro 170

I think I will take out these:
*Neutron Tensor
* Fission Tesla
* Neutron Tesla

I want some help with what you think of Tesla vs Wrath. Which should i put out? Below you have my bag and all tips are welcome.

Besides, I've only played with MVP / axiom 1-2mεnader and not been able to test so much. And as many other here, i dont want too much molds and overlaps

Putting Putter:
Pure Zero Hard

Throwing Putter:
Neutron Soft Proxy
Neutron So4ft Envy
Electron Atom

Neutron Theory
Neutron Aliases
neutron Tensor
Proton Matrix
DD Lucid Justice

Fairway Drivers:
Neutron Crave
Proton Voltage
Plasma Voltage
Neutron Voltage
Fission Voltage
Neutron Shock

Distance Drivers:
Proton Inertia
Proton Inertia
Neutron Wrath
fission Telsa
Neutron Tesla
Neutron Fireball
fission Photon
fission Photon
Neutron Photon
Proton Octane
Neutron Nitro

Do you really need the 5 mids? Try to take a couple out and see if you miss them. Most stable drivers can handle truly OS lines at even midrange distances. Stable/Understable are the most important mid type molds IMO.

With fission teslas and photons you can cover any stability needed with both molds from very OS to US. Proton/neutron heavy wts are OS while sub 155g fissions can be US and a mix inbetween.

Volts do not change the same way in fission plastic and seem to fly true regardless of wt for the most part.
Whats your bag right now AIM?

Yep, Defy is laser straight with late fade. If you compare the Defy wing to Tesla/Wrath, the Defy looks less OS by design. I think the Defy glides better too.

I find this to be one of MVP's best molds. There's not much else like it out there.

How far do you throw each class? That would be very helpful in building a bag.
For me, I throw a little over 400 max. Ideal bag for me would be:
Proxy, envy
Axis, vector, theory
Resistor, Inspire, crave
Inertia (US control)
2x Defy/Tesla/Wrath/Photon (only one of these molds, OS control)
Nitro, Octane, Catalyst (max D)
And if it's windy 2x N wave for tailwind
Not that I have all these, but that's what my "ideal" bag would be. If you throw 100 feet further than I do then you obviously could work better with different discs, and if you throw 50 feet shorter then you would work better with different discs... really varies on how far you throw

Yeah, gotta try out an Ion at some point. It might be the best throwing premium putter shaped like a conventional putter (if you don't consider the curved inner rim).

I'm quite smitten with my N Insanity. Powered down I get easy s-curves, powered up hyzer flips for tight lines and flat for predictable turnovers. Versatile stable-understable driver for my 350' level arm speed. Let a guy borrow it the other day and he was trying to trade me for it like crazy. It pairs really well with my N Tesla, I like that a lot for straight to fade stuff and forehands. Photons have carved out a nice spot in my MVP bag, I have a beefy N for stiff headwinds, a 169 Proton and a Plasma fighting for stable-overstable distance. Love their workability, even the beefy one is manageable.

I second AIM on the mids. They don't make a great, really OS mid unless you find a domey Vector (Tensors suck, sorry) but they do make a terrific, slow, overstable utility driver in the Resistor. I've had three N Resistors in a couple of different weight ranges and they're great beefy tools. Your Alias and Matrix might overlap if the Matrix wasn't retooled to beef them up but I'm a fan of the Theory too. All of their mids are good, even if I don't like the Tensor.

I'd look into a Relay or Signal if your Amp isn't decidedly understable. I've been doing so much more work backhand with my Signal, been waiting a while for MVP to make us an easy flipper off the shelf for those roller lines and crazy turning left to right doglegs.
