    Streamline Echo Review

    The Echo is a beginner-friendly finesse midrange. A classic "point-and-shoot" disc, this neutral to slightly understable mid works best for touchy turnovers, smooth hyzer-flips, and dead straight laser beams. We have plenty of Echos in stock and for sale, and this Streamline Echo review provides a snapshot of this floaty mid. 

    Streamline Echo Plastics

    Streamline is a brand under the MVP Disc Sports umbrella and will have the same plastic blends. 

    • Neutron: The "flagship" blend, this premium plastic is durable with just a bit of flex. Most of MVP's lineup is available in this plastic. Discs fly truest to their flight ratings in this blend. 
    • Proton: Stiff and highly durable, this blend has a translucent look and is similar to Innova Champion or Discraft Z. Discs fly a bit more overstable in Proton and will maintain original flight patterns for years.

    Streamline Echo Flight Numbers

    • Speed: 5
    • Glide: 5
    • Turn: -1.5
    • Fade: 1 

    A reliable turn and minimal fade make the Echo a neutral workhorse for beginners and an understable finesse midrange for advanced arms. When thrown with a slight hyzer release, it will flip to flat and ride out straight, while a confident anhyzer rip will send the Echo on a pure turnover line. This makes it a great control midrange on wooded courses.

    Dimensions

    • Diameter: 21.4cm
    • Height: 1.6cm
    • Rim Depth: 1.3cm
    • Rim Width: 1.5cm

    These are almost identical measurements as the popular Axiom Hex. Some speculate the Echo is the same mold, without MVP/Axiom's two-piece "overmold" technology. The Echo has a bit more dome than the flat-top Hex, but these two share the same beadless deep-rim hand feel. In short, the Echo offers the same comfortable grip as the Hex, with slightly more understable flight characteristics. 

    History

    The Streamline Echo and Axiom Hex were both approved by the PDGA on the same day in 2021, leading to speculation that these discs may share the same rim. The Echo is one solid piece of plastic, while the Hex uses the "overmold" technology that enhances the "gyro" effect. As a result, the Hex flies slightly more stable than the Echo. 

    Skill Level Recommendations

    • Novice: An excellent introductory disc that helps beginners learn to throw straight shots. An all-around workhorse for players at this skill level. 
    • Intermediate: Great control midrange that is workable on a variety of lines. Pair the Echo with an overstable midrange to cover all shot shapes in the 200-300 foot range. 
    • Advanced: Understable complimentary disc for hyzer-flips, turnovers, and touchy approaches. Holds sneaky distance potential when thrown with a lot of height. 
    • Pro: Elite arms need more high-speed stability and a more reliable fade in their midrange slot.
