I have a butt ton of Volts, varying weights and colors, and none of them have seemed very OS to me. I like the idea of the Shock...whatever the release date is, I'lll be there.

The Shock engraving on the wing says otherwise

They do have an EX/Banshee vibe to the nose. We also observed that it's got a mini-Whippet flavor too, more so in the proportions than an actual fat-fat-nose similarity. There's a very slight dip in the radius as it reaches the nose, similar to the Eagle, Whippet, Banshee, X-Clone, etc. The higher nose sure feels nice in the hand, I can tell ya that.

i thought the overmold was same plastic in order to mold together properly.. guess im wrong.

I was told different plastic could not be made because the overmold only works with the similar type of plastic.

Wish i knew the truth.

I question this.... the predators I've thrown from 10/10 to 5/10 are still overstable. Lol. I haven't heard much of volts being anything more than stable.

^^ pure speculation here, but can anyone confirm/deny this is the case at MVP?
If that is the case then bravo to MVP. Heck of a smart money saving idea.
