I ask this in question form. I love my Volt, but I still carry an 11x Champ Eagle because they are very different discs. I hated the Amp, because I don't really use Understable discs, even though the Amp wasn't really that Understable, IMO. Just trying to I guess gauge what MVP's intent is. I don't think there's anything that would kick the Teebizzle out of my bag, but I could potentially see the Shock replacing my Ascent. So...to the masses: what do you all think?
I think MVP's intent is clear: make the best flying discs they can that fit exactly what experience players ask for and buy the most. They probably realize that for most people the teebird is a very hard disc to compete with if you try to make an identical disc, most who try fail and can't help but look a little incompetent. The slot that most newer companies seem to be trying to fill right now is the faster 'speed 9-10' slot, because it is very popular on the forums and people aren't locked so hard into their disc in that slot as they are to their 'speed 6-8' tb, eagles, and leopards. The amp flies leopard-esque, the volt flies kind of like a beat up teebird or tl, and the shock looks like it is going to fly like a brand new champ eagle or teebird; but they are all faster 1.9-2.0 rims with new technology and feel.

Pwingles the ascent is faster and more stable; it's very PD-esque.
