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.
Debuting at the top of our “nerdiest names” list is the Proton Photon, but this model is no joke. Our 21mm Distance Driver class hit the scene at fever pitch for demand of high-speed GYRO® distance drivers, and for powerful throwers, the Photon hits a highly usable sweet spot of stability. With enough power or mitigating wind, the Photon can exhibit a nice flight-extending shallow turnover. Typically the Photon is used for high power straight shots with an ending fade.

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.
