The Catalyst is a perfect starter for big distance. Its stability profile lends itself to being incredibly useful even when underpowered. Catalyst is significantly less understable (more stable) than its 21.5mm counterpart, the Orbital. High power throwers will be able to control rollers, sky anhyzers, and tight turns, while average to low power players will get easy distance with great glide, and a power responsive amount of turn-to-straight. The Catalyst is molded with the same core and nice even dome as the Octane, yielding extra glide for maximum distance shots.
Players have raved about the added glide of the mildly domed Plasma material, as well as its excellent grip, flex, and visual appeal. Plasma is slightly softer and more flexible than Neutron plastic combined with a metallic appearance.
