Question for Mike C and other testers: In your opinion, how would the Volt fly for us earthlings who can only throw 400' down a ski slope in a 50 mph tailwind? In other words, is it noodle arm friendly?

I'm going to have some of my noodle armed friends throw it in the next couple days to see how it flies for them.

If Mike is throwing them on axis-esque lines over 400, with clean form, then count on it to be more stable at slower speeds

I've had two preordered from communitydiscs.com for a few weeks now and was excited to hear they are releasing soon. But hearing it called a speed 9 axis has me really excited and now it's going to be a long couple of weeks till they are on my door step

Official noodle-arm tester

It's mildly overstable for me. I throw nothing faster than OLFs and it flies like my most beefy one, a heavy QOLF that I carry for headwind-straight, FH, and fadey shots. It's my only OLF that will fight out of almost anything, and in my bag it's between my straight-stable SOLF and the utility-ish Champ FB.

We're gonna be seeing reviews from (hopefully) many people who are not testers soon

Have you thrown it in wind? How far does your noodle arm throw OLFs?

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

Heavy crosswinds. Kind of a garbage video. Me and my buddy chip filmed 18 or so at Arboretum and it's gonna be a nice video. Will try to get it up by midnight.

These fly like a well worn olf for me, little less overstable with more d and glide. Should be dead straight to fade for lower power players.

I had pretty limited testing yesterday. Tomorrow we're gonna take them to the DN driving range and test 'em. I'll bring my bag to get a familiar comparison.

Can't tell if your camera is constantly zooming, or I'm having a seizure. I'd love to be able to see their full flight in your video so I can compare to what mine were doing.
