Matrix vs Axis basically boils down to this for me. If you like to hyzer-flip stablish mids, you'll prefer Axis. If you like to throw stablish mids flat, you'll prefer the Matrix.

Matrix is very shark/ibex-ish actually. It holds some HSS but isnt really what i consider OS. It ia a dependable stable mid sort of like a new age buzzz which handles lots of power and isnt beaded. The axis is very similar in flight stability but how they fly on lines is going to be different. I noticed the matrix to be impacted much more by winds vs my vector/axis.

If you dont like to throw putters far the matrix is a great addition to the bag IMO. I agree with broD that matrix is more troque/flat throw friendly.
That sounds like a winner. I'll pick one up once they're in general production.

I just want to say down thing that many have said; the Envy is a great disc.

A few days ago playing with a friend of mine I just introduced DG to last year. On a 320 slight downhill hole, he throws a King and gets near the circle. He was pumped.

I threw an Envy and parked it leaning on the pole. He was pissed!

Threw my 171 octane for the first time. It was slightly more stable than a brand new g star destroyer and flew farther on a less good line. This is at 450' golf d power. So I think it is better than a destroyer. Tried to throw the 168 catalyst on a max out distance line but it needs hyzer with that much power. I released it flat and it went sky roller.

Basically this. I compared the profile of the Octane to a Destroyer and they're VERY similar. I can max around 480' and they're really straight for me; flip up flat and go straight with a reliable fade. Awesome for forehands, too!

Catalyst is basically a longer Wave. But what I like about it is that you throw it the same (not harder) and it just goes farther, where usually you have to throw harder to get the same line out of a faster disc. I think MVP hit a home run with their 23mm drivers.

And amazingly it feels a little better in my hand despite having a lower rim config and slightly wider rim. Definitely going to pick up a proton when it comes out for the more overstable slower wearing compliment.

Can someone please give me a definitive answer? What is the rim depth on the Inertia? Inflight lists it as 1.2 and an infinite disc YouTube review as 1.1. Thanks

The PDGA list has it at 1.2. Probably the place you should be looking for details anyway.

Will the proton octane likely be more or less stable than neutron?

Typically, neutron and stock proton are pretty similar flight wise. In my experience the sparkle proton and plasma seem to be similar in flight, a little less stable than the N and P. I think the protons tend to be a touch more durable, but finding bright colored protons in the weights you want can be a chore.
