How far are you throwing? My amp flew stable at 300' and under, but as soon as I put some power on it, it turns a lot. Possibly my amp is less stable than most. I've had rivers that were beefy and some that were understable, but nothing close to my amp.

Perhaps when your throwing hard your form isn't as good and so your putting more OAT on the disc, causing it to turn more.

Also, with the first runs, there was some variation.. maybe you got a melon.

All of mine fly the same.. neutral-stable

methinks I gots an understable one. It flies about the same as my esp avenger ss. Don't think I'm torquing it with OAT, as thats not usually a problem for me (i can get close to full power drives on my aviar PnA without any noticeable wobble or turning early) I just figured that was how it was intended to fly. It is labeled understable D:

Mine is wicked understable but not uncontrollable, it's never burned on me but it has tracked a little more right on me than I want sometimes. Still dialing it in but so far I'm really enjoying it. The way it rolls is a nice compliment to my sidewinder which I can have trouble getting it to finish way right.

Finally played with my Amps today. Have had them since they came out and have been too busy and hurt to play....til today. It performed exactly as I hoped. With my power, it was long and straight with half the fade of the Volt when thrown flat. I actually got it to flip from flat a couple of times...may really be liking this disc. It was so windy today, it was hard to tell if what I got is what it actually does, but I think I got an accurate accounting. It actually handled the wind well, too. Surprised me. Think this will be a keeper.


FWIW...170 flo. yellow. Stretched it out close to 270' throwing mostly cross wind as it turned out..think i can do better without all the wind. I also have a 166 orange to try next...see if its any different.

Yep.

Between the Axis, Amp, and Ion, MVP discs will forever remain in my bag.
