After a couple of rounds of throwing the Amp, I can easily say it has more glide than the Volt. Like zj said, I think this disc will be more popular overall in the community. Can't say enough about its forward fading LSS. Really enjoying this disc at 350 ft for tight hyzer flips.

169 red.

Threw my brother's today, looks like we got a freak. I think he said it was 172'ish and it was so freaking stable. I bombed it as hard as I could, and it didn't even flinch. For reference, I threw a 167 TP sword with the same throw, and got plenty of turn and it went around 350 on super flat 6' off the ground line. Threw the amp and it laughed at me as it resisted the turn.

Looking forward to try one of these that flies as intended.

Threw my white 170 some more today while I was fully warmed up and not constricted by bulky clothing. I was throwing it in the field to the 340'-350' range it was very understable. Low shots held to the ground and higher ones exhibited a good amount of turn, I'd say around -2.5. On the course I got it to hold some good turnover shots and even got it flying dead straight on a hyzer flip to about 330'. Looks like a promising roller as well, I had a few shots that landed on the ground with just a touch too much 'hyzer' for a roll and cut left (RHBH) but I can tell that once it wears and I'm more familiar this could be a go to BH roller.

The closest disc I could describe to it would be a nice stable Z Avenger SS in max weight, it turns but pulls out given the height. My first throws were in the 280-300' range and it was definitely more teebird like for lower power shots like that. Powered up to 340-350 it starts to show its turn and glide quite a bit more.

A white first run from disc nation. Sounds like the one Mike C described. I was very disappointed.

If it makes people who think I have bad form feel better, it was much more OS than a volt. I get turn on volts.

I think freaks will always exist

I found an uber flat volt that was an xout for the Skullboy Volts i stamped. It is LF and the PLH is really high.

I felt every first run Amp and don't remember any freaks but I'm not shocked

Absolutely. He wasn't upset, he just wanted to make sure he didn't have trashy form and couldn't throw it.

No harm done, just a confusing few throws.

Yep. I'd honestly love to have a freak amp

I lost my stable one because it went so far over a tree line I never saw it land
