My plan for MVP 23mm drivers...

Catalyst - turnover and anhyzer drives
Octane - hyzer-flip to straight and sweeping hyzer drives
Nitro - fade, hyzer and headwind drives

I have Catalyst and Nitro on the way, need to add Octane

I just picked up a 168g Catalyst to test out and was pleasantly surprised. I haven't clicked a ton with most MVP/Axiom stuff, but this was a great hyzerflip tunnel disc or big sky anhyzer bomber. Workably understable, but still hooked up at the end. Easily hyzerflipped with a little turn, but not a rollover like many understable drivers. Or thrown high and flat, it would turn over and hold it for most of the flight without nosing down into a roller. I liked it. Not sure it will make the bag, but it reminds me of my seasoned FDs with a good bit more speed.

Was a dead heat between the Octane and Energy for me. The Energy is a great wind fighter and FH disc for me that you can throw as hard as you want and it won't flip over. Basically my ideal FH distance disc.

The Octane is equally great but I prefer it for long BH throws. Basically it's a Destroyer with the same resistance to turn, but a milder fade. Feels great and the go boom.

Didn't love the Nitro as much, it was not as OS for FH as I would like and for BH it was a bit too much, never get it over 375 BH. FH it went really far, but I don't like hyzerflipping FH shots.

Octane. I like the nitro but wish it was just a hair more OS (171). Still a decent wind fighter but I've flipped it a couple times into a headwind. Octane just goes really, really, really far...

None have really clicked for me. The Catalyst is in the bag for second throws/experimentation, but I still reach for the Inertia when I need to know exactly where my disc will land, the Wave when I have a little more room to the right to risk it getting squirrely, and a lightweight Star Tern when I really am looking for all out max D. The Catalyst isn't outperforming the Wave or the Tern yet, and isn't as comfortable in my hand, so it probably won't make the bag this year.

Similarly, the Defy killed off my brief foray into Destroyers, and the Octane hasn't booted it either. In fact, I just bought a DDx that may boot both out.

They are all too wide rimmed for me to bag. But if I had to choose, it would be the Catalyst.

Courses I play have many long wide open holes mixed in, I bag Nuke and Force...and actually use them.

I should have been more specific. I can throw them, but it's the very upper end of comfort for my hand.
I'd rather go with the Photon class for all out D.
