For me, that's a Hatchet. Wanted to give gyro a shot at that slot and tried a Virus, but absolutely hated that disc. Worst gyro disc I've thrown.

Yeah I tried a 155 Orbital and a 165.. The 155 is fun but unpredictable if I am using it it's strictly for hyzerflip to anhyzers I can't control the flip to keep it straight...the heavier one doesn't really gain or give me anything just another driver with middle of the road understable/ stable just extra touchy in the wind... the Vanish is better but I burn it if I try to flip it downhill.

I'm satisfied with my lineup wind or not in the woods but I gotta have some mini beef when I play the ball golf course again next weekend.. Or in the future, I can't add a disc before the tourney.. Well maybe that sparkle Inertia I feel like I could tune that in with 10-15 throws. Probably pack the 174 N Inertia next time, last time it was gale force winds 75km/hr, the 155 Inertia did alright but I didn't throw it until the end of the round..

157 Plasma Insanity was my replacement for a 166 Tournament Hatchet. Both need seasoning to do the hyzer flip to straight shot. Hatchet replaced a 150s JK Valk, which replaced a 150s Champ Sidewinder.

Make sure you deflash the Crave. When I got my 152 Plasma Crave, I was very disappointed in it until I wore the flashing off. Some discs, the flashing doesn't seem to matter much, but on the Plasma Crave, it did.

Great disc overall.

I've been eyeballing that Crave for over 6 months haha..

I got a hate on for flashing I also have a long flat file so I can take it off perfectly and evenly. I have a neutron 160 and a proton 165 Crave. The protons beefy I may have to check for flashing when I get home. I remember asking on here if there was a micro bead on an Insanity, the reply was ??? So I took it off and it flew much more like how people were saying.

I think Inertia x 2 or 3, Wave, Fission Photons and the occasional Vanish should have all my distance requirements nailed.. Especially since I have a great (for me) FH this year.. I don't need trick understable slot anymore. If I throw better I've got the next step ups already.

When will the discing down end? Haha
It is so weird though that the Wave is working and similar discs aren't.. maybe I finally knocked the beef off it. I know my putter/mid form is awesome but my driving form has lost some power...

Entropy has been saving me strokes. I love how dumpy it is. Idk how much my 2k+ elevation factors in, but the overstability is on the money.

Messing with the Inertia and im starting to click with it. Very workable with a nice finish.
Wrath/Inertia/Insanity is a good fairway/control driver combo.
Eventually when i get an Inertia beat, im guessing it will replace insanity.

Still working on the Trace,Envy,Flare,Volt, and Photon.

What are you looking for? A Vanish will be flippier than a Wave, but still very usable. IMO it's what the DD Renegade was supposed to be.

I see the Elaine King Fission Photons are being stamped 11/5/-1.5/2.5. Is the news to anyone else??? I thought all Photons were listed at 12/5/-1/3, but typically flying with less turn than listed. Is MVP giving a unique flight rating for their Fission releases now?
