Very nice mid range and works well for a controlled right to left approach. Excellent for short hyzers. Better control than the MRV in my opinion (I've owned both).

I find the MRX to fill that gap as a driver where you're looking for about 70-80 percent of you driver length. I use it for gentle hyzer shots up to 325 feet. It's a good approach disc from 150-250 in the wind. It's more stable than its sister disc, the MRV. The stiffer ones you find are more stable than the more flexible ones so it helps if you can touch them before buying. Big arm players will be able to turn this disc over and into the ground. If trying to achieve an S-curve with the disc, make sure you get some height to give it time to come out. The MRX doesn't skip or skid too much most of the time so take that into account for distance. I can use it as a turnover driver with accuracy up to 420 feet, but that is not its reccomended use by the company or its pros. I haven't beat up one of these yet via trees or a nose dive so not sure of its durability. Maybe they will come out with this in the Z plastic someday.

The MRX took some throws to get used to and took some tree bashes to get right. Once the disc is "tuned-up" it's a winner. The flight is very fast for a mid-range and the low speed fade is consistent. I throw a lighter weight MRX (168g) than my MRV's (173g-175g) as the disc can hold the line a little better and gets me a little more distance. While the MRX's low speed fade is consistent, it's high speed flight is very straight to understable depending on wear. In other words -- it does not handle a forehand very well.

My Review:
The MRX is a medium speed, medium distance midrange. The Elite Pro plastic is very resiliant to chips and scratches and has a nice gradual wear without changing the flight characteristics drastically unless it is very worn. Discraft's most overstable midrange, the MRX has low speed fade similar to that of a SE Roc. Thrown hyzer, it will give a predictable fade. Thrown hard and flat, it will give a nice, gliding s-curve. The MRX is slower than both the Roc and MRV making it more accurate, but I would say the Roc and MRV are about 50 feet longer for me. The MRX's resistance to high speed turn is similar to a SE Roc but might be a hair easier to turn over depending upon the weight. Unfortunately, unlike some of the other overstable midrange discs such as the Sentinel MF and SE Roc, the MRX is not exceptionally good in windy situations and doesn't quite skip as well as the others. For a long time the MRX was my most accurate midrange but I have since stopped carrying it in favor of straighter, more versatile discs.
