It's a great utility fairway for me, akin to my trusty old Eagles, and I use them and my Patriot for most line shaping shots. I still love the Volt, but it has slightly less turn and definetly not the same level of hard fade.

The new Shocks, on the other hand, are truly overstable. I can crank on them as hard as I can (again, low-power player here) and see nary a degree of turn, but still that hard fade. I sued to think the Volt fought the wind well, but the new Shocks take much more headwind and sidewind without flipping. They aren't a monster wind-eater like a XXX, but I say they fight the wind just as good, if not better, than a Teebird.

I definetly reccomend picking up a new run as a speciality or even utility driver, depending on your skill level.
Maybe understable was the wrong word for it. My Shock does have significantly more turn to it than my river for example. However, that Shock does have its uses. I can throw it at 8 o'clock and it will flip up and go right everytime.
