I recently played 7-8 rounds in a row where I switched out my whole bag every round for fun. I shot nearly identical every round. I still prefer MVP, but I can shoot the same with anything else.
Sounds like someone "gets it". Throw what you want and who cares what others are throwing. You can learn any disc eventually or your level of play can grow into it.
I have just started to use my sweet lightsaber dyed (by BigManBailye) Anode putter and like it. Haven't noticed any bounce outs or other problems I read about here but, I dont throw my putts hard. I am still learning this one.
On a side note I just bought a Volt and my first impression is I dont like it yet. I have not thrown it enough yet to be comfortable with it. I let my son throw it and this might end up in his bag....He looked like he had been behind this one for a while... he made the old man look bad!
