Thanks for the info zj! Much appreciated. I was expecting it to be a wind fighter disc. I've got two on pre-order. I'll see if she fits!

Idk but this is kind of funny. "Here's our overstable disc, except its not that overstable, unless you're a noodle arm".

MVP never used the word "overstable" in their description of the Shock.

Any higher speed disc will be more stable/overstable for us noodle arms. That is not exclusive to MVP.

Too late to edit. MVP says it is their slightly overstable fairway driver.

Anyway...what I said above still holds true.

Understand my definition of overstable is different.

Take a look at Lat64, they market a lot of their straight stable discs as overstable. It just happens to be the best way to help people understand how it flies before they buy. For most people it will be slightly overstable. For me the stability is only present at the end of the flight, which is a unique quality in a disc.

MVP isn't making your usual type of disc that needs seasoning. They are giving you molds that you know you can pick up off the shelf and they are ready to be controlled.

To be fair here, the Disc Nation salesman in me was very reluctant to admit that the Shock won't be a true overstable mold

Saint is marketed as an over stable control driver. The two I have are anything but over stable, in fact they fly more like roadrunners. We can speculate all we want, but until you get the shock in hand you won't really know. I'm putting my money on consistency with MVP. I'm stoked to try this thing out.

Exactly, it's best to understand that these discs are marketed to the masses not DGCR despite mvps heavy loyalty here

While I am testing these for Disc Nation, I do so knowing my reviews will/can sway sales. I chose my words carefully, but I try to stay honest with my findings. I try to learn the benefits of a disc and share with you all why and where I feel it might fit in your bag. If I came in and bashed it because I expected a wind fighter I feel I would be doing a disserve to DN, MVP and DGCR. I can't ever expect a disc to do anything, despite what manufactures say it will do. I have to find out what the disc was designed to do, not what I need
Youre like, some kind of, anti-discspeed
