Without a limited ceiling a throw that would get me 400' with my Sword would probably get me 370-380' with the Volt. I can throw the Volt pretty damn far, especially since it is easy to get a max D line. I can just look at a spot in the sky where I want to put the Volt and have it start turning and it does it...It just seems so intuitive.

The soft Anodes just seem like better short discs to me...I'd rather play catch with a soft...with a person or the basket. I like how I can pinch into the plastic on my grip as it helps me get spin on the disc.

EDIT
In a slight tailwind today my Volts were passing the 400' fairly easily.

I've settled into my new midrange setup after vigorous testing of many new N mids...Also, PDs are totally back, not sure what I was thinking...They pair great with the Volt. Also, all my Volts are so similar I'm only bagging one--my light pink 175 because it holds a turn slightly longer than the others. The GL Villain wasn't overstable/predictable enough to be a wind disc or replace the PD in any way...Much different from the Opto, which I'm still loving.
Putters
2x172 Eclipse Soft Anodes--Putt and Approach
1x173 Soft Anode--Drives/long approaches
1x173 Neutron Anode--Drives
Mids
1x178 FR green Axis--Understable/touch mid
1x176 Neutron Axis--Workhorse neutral mid
1x178 FR Vector--beaten into straightness--neutral shots/approaches in wind
1x174 Neutron Vector--Fast, straight, moderately overstable
1x176 Eclipse Vector--Overstable
Control/Fairway drivers
1x175 Volt--Versatile neutral driver
2x174 yellow champystar SPDs--seasoned and new for most stable drives
Distance Drivers
1x175 Champ Mamba--hyzer flips/turnover drives and lots of utility
1x174 TP Sword--breaking in for hyzer flips, less extreme flips than Mamba
1x169 VIP Sword--Max control D...Very HSS with very little LSS
2x175 VIP Swords--new and seasoned, most straight/control distance drives
1x175 Opto Villainn--overstable utility and distance driver (first disc I've gotten to fill both these slots satisfactorily)
Max/Open D(these rarely come with me, only long/open courses)
1x155 Blizzard Wraith--tailwinds and long turning shots
1x156 Blizzard Boss--Max S turn D
1x174 Z Nuke--for when I don't trust the Blizzards
1x174 Q-Quasar--for when I don't trust the Nuke...
Wind Contingency Discs (for when it's so windy it's no longer really disc golf)
1x175 ZESP Zone
1x179 FR Vector
1x175 11x FB
1x175 CFR CPD
1x175 Z Nuke OS

I'm really curious about two things.

How are your swords now that they are seasoned? I have a stockpile of tps between 167-171 and I love them but they are mostly in the 7.5-9/10 area. Are yours truly flippy when they break in?

Also, what's up with the villian! I don't think I've heard anyone else even mention one since they were released....how do you like it?

Unfortunately I lost my most seasoned TP Sword (it was black) before it got really understable, but it had developed some turn. I haven't had much experience with the TPs because I only like domey Swords and there were very few domey ones that came through Clearwater...and they were all black. I still have one black one, but it's pretty new. My VIPs have seasoned pretty well. My original flies very straight from a slight hyzer now and it started out fairly overstable under 400'.

The Villain has a very similar shape as the Sword, but the wing is upturned at just a bit more angle to make it considerably more overstable...It's almost like a Sword-X. The Optos are fast and overstable, and the GLs are only slightly more stable than a Sword. I use the Optos and I find them to be a great all around overstable disc. They have enough speed to fly on hyzers through the wind or get good distance into a strong headwind, yet are overstable enough to work for shorter utility shots and spikes. It's the only driver more overstable than the PD that I carry.

I just put an eclipse Ion back in my bag as it's by far my most overstable putter and it has been windy lately.

It's been a while...

173 Eclipse Soft Anode--the disc I throw at the basket
173 Proton Soft Anode--seasoned straight for putter drives
173 Neutron Anode--fast and stable for winds and shots that fade.

17? Neutron Tangent (not sure which Tangent I'm going to stick with)
176 Neutron Axis--straight shots and hyzers
174 Neutron Vector--holds any line for about 75% of the flight then fades hard
177 Proton Vector--extremely HSS with very predictable LSS...best mid in open and wind

Amps/Volts/Shocks--I have the entire range of stabilities in my collection of MVP's drivers, but I'm still working out which combination is best/most versatile for me

169 VIP Sword--Max D
175 VIP Sword--control D
174 VIP Giant (brand new)--overstable D

No ION?! lol.. you really notice the N. Anodes to be that much more stable? Haven't had a lot of time to mess with both only had proton until a few weeks back..

Jealous of all the MVP options! Just wish they had a distance driver.. I dropped swords for strikers this winter and played around with the lace but OS one should be better'

Would you like to see an OS MVP high speed driver?
