I'm still waiting on the Volt and Amp to be old news and pick one up on the cheap in the MP to test. I'm sold on the Ion and I'm liking the N Anode. Are the cores the same depth on the volt and amp, (shallow from what I've read)? If so, I guessing the shock will be too.

That was me for 1.

And i dont feel foolish at all! i feel releived that i was wrong and MVP is listening to the community, and they are doing more than i imagined!

YES, go MVP.

I am no fanboy however, i throw and recommend discs to people that i like. MVP just happens to be a large portion of that I used to recommend Innova Rocs and Eagles and Teebirds to everyone, when they were more consistent.. now there is something better, so i cannot recommend inferior products to someone, that would be irresponsible.

People dont even take 5 minutes to go to their website and read about the overmold tech... they want to be hand fed, or they just want to spout fact-less opinions and observations that have no basis in reality.

Glad someone like UPS has the patienct to explain it to ignorant masses.

Also, the overmold is the same plastic, it just has weight agent in it, to make it heavier.. thats the whole point. MORE gyroscopic effect. (now i will be flamed =/)

No, if you read.

"The Shock is our slightly overstable fairway driver. The Shock is a more stable complement to the Volt. With a high power throw, it will hold a long straight line with less turn and immense glide followed by a late dependable fade." - MVP Disc Sports

LESS turn, with a late Fade.

Think Eagle-X

All of my volts turn and come back like an S-curve, unless i hyzer flip at the right power, it can go straight.

Perhaps you dont have the form, release angle, or power to get the disc to fly its intended path?

Some of the early runs are weird though.. so maybe it is a melon

The overmold, and cores (Neutron, Proton) are not the same material.

What if you don't have a "high power throw" and just a respectable throw? What will the shock do? Noodle arms wanna know! Is it possible for MVP to make a disc that can break the speed 9 category with their gyro designs?

Also does this mean the Roc3 will be affordable now?

Please stop talking in hyperbole..

It scuffs, and get's dents. It's very durable though. It won't rip away from the disc.

Yea I just don't get releasing a slightly different volt?

I can't stand it when people start saying " the whites or less stable, blacks more over stable"

So confusing?

I feel like my volt is a shock... Because I'm shocked how much it fades lol.

This is what I have been waiting for from MVP!

The Volt turns too much for me when thrown RHFH.
