MVP Fission Photon - Don't Shoot Podcast
CUSTOM STAMP: Stonehenge, by John Dorn, is the triple-foil realisation of the concept art of their first stamped disc last year. Designed with Hole 15 at Manchester Disc Golf in mind, as well as playing on the cultural significance of the stone-age site in Amesbury, the design was stamped on 400 discs, of which only 100 will make their way to Europe. The "DFX" seen on the central stone is a reference to the US retailer with whom the project was a collaboration.
DISC: The MVP Fission Photon is Don't Shoot Podcast host Harry Messenger's personal choice when it comes to a reliable distance driver. Coming in at a speed 11, it is not so fast that it is unusable for players with lower arm-speed - in fact, most players will make some use of this disc. Thrown by intermediate players, the disc is overstable and glidey, while players with more arm-speed will see a straight flight even getting some turn before finishing with a solid fade. The Fission Photon is also the current driver of choice of World Champion James Conrad, who has multiple in his current bag!
The Photon is a stable-overstable high speed distance driver. The Photon is best described as a longer Tesla, with power throwers able to achieve some flight extending turn, and all throwers getting a reliable fade. The Photon is naturally headwind resistant but average power throwers can use a headwind to emulate those extended flights of high power throwers.
Fission Plastic: Ultra-Lightweight Neutron Core
Fission™ Microbubble Technology produces an ultralight core with evenly distributed and imperceptible weight reduction microbubbles. The ultralight core allows an even higher GYRO® overmold density relative to the core, yet still remaining in the lighter weight classes — 135g to 165g in the Photon.
This produces an entirely new type of lightweight disc never before seen in the sport, and beyond the capability of any other manufacturer. Weight distribution, stability, and durability of prior “bubble” discs are all improved upon by Fission. Skeptics of prior light or bubble plastics are in for a surprise, as Fission brings advanced disc physics and true high-tech molding into the lightweight plastics arena.
- Ultra-lightweight core for added GYRO®
- Imperceptible micro-bubbles
- Improved durability over competition
- Light throwing weight with substantial feel
