  • Stable-Overstable
  • 21mm Distance Drivers

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.

All models in the 21mm Distance Drivers class, displayed by relative stability:

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.
