Depending on materials used for the mold, you could be looking at up to 40k for just the steel. All molds are expensive. Even the molds used to make small things like light switch plates are about...

This is my own simple observation, as someone who throws cleanly and consistently in the 450 range:

The argument that our older courses are being outdated by faster drivers is just not valid. The...

Seems like MVP has yet to make a truly overstable or understable disc. I mean, I honestly think the overmold could be holding them back. It sort of normalizes all their discs, making them fly a lot...

What plex did was go to some lengths to explain to me the concept of gyroscopics. He also certainly made it sound like MVP has some kind of monopoly on gyroscopics, due to their "gyro tech." All...

While I appreciate the completely unsolicited and condescending explanation of gyroscopics, my actual point was that MVP didn't invent them. All discs are gyroscopic. Nice job reading my post.

Gyro Tech isn't a real thing. Its an overmold. All discs are gyroscopic. And if the only thing about "gyro tech" is that it makes their discs more difficult to throw, how is that anything but a...

I think you're doing it right. I'm about a 425-450' thrower, and these flip some for me, but they are pretty dang stable, especially at less than full power. Your Lace sounds about in line with the 3...

A Gator-like mid, a true turnover mid, a Firebird-like fairway, and a Force-like distance driver would make it so that I could actually throw an all Vibram bag. Don't know if the proto flippy Lace...

I only bought one Volt, but unfortunately it turned out to be one of the flippy Volts, so it already flies like an Amp, but I'm still curious to try one of these at some point. I really wish they had...

You know, as inconsistent as Innova usually is, I guarantee it will fly exactly like some version of the Destroyer.

I bought 3 of these things, two of which are 175, and the third is 170, which is what I will usually throw for a max distance shot.

This is true. For putts up to maybe 35 ft. I can't tell a difference between the two, but when I'm throwing, the Sole is completely unflippable for me. They are extremely high speed stable. I use a...

To be clear, I never said they were "super flippy." I think they are understable, and not very good in the wind. I think they'll work fine for someone who has a fairly clean throw, but not a ton of...

This disc has been a bit of a disapointment to me. For one thing, both of the two that I have are way too flippy to be useful for me. I am about a 450' thrower, and if I want an S-curve disc, there...

Soles fly like Wizards and feel like magnets in the hand. They have good glide.

Why would having a bead make a disc more affected by OAT? That makes zero sense to me, and all of the years I've been playing and reading forums, I've never once heard that.

They all have the same core, so the heavier ones should be slightly more gyroscopic. However, 5 grams spread over the entire rim is not even close to making a noticeable difference.
