Put some lead tape on edge of light FB's rim and see how it flies

Anyway I am excited for Shock and I think they will come up with true OS (wind fighter) fairway driver (as well mid/putter aka Zone/Gator/Drone) before moving to new line (i.e. distance drivers).

I find the Gyro properties of the MVP discs fight the wind more regardless.. The gyro just makes it fight turn/fade more that other discs, therefor it should fight wind more.

I dont think you need Boss or XXX over stable in order to fight wind with the GYRO tech

I don't think the gyro does what you think it does. My understanding of it is that the gyro makes flight straighter, possibly more so in the high speed portion of flight than low speed.

My impression has always been that MVP discs and their GYRO technology have always maybe the discs hold whatever line I released them on longer. That can be a hyzer, straight or anhyzer release. Whatever they get on, they keep flying on that line longer for me. When I get them spinning and up to speed properly.


BUT, I am a mediocre noodle-arm, and definitely NOT a scientist. NOR do I stay at Holiday Inns.

Gyroscopics keep the disc on a plane and its wing oriented for optimal flight. The wing shape is the train conductor... that shape cutting fast through air is what gives the disc most of its flight character. All flying discs thrive on gyroscopics, because that's what turns our spinning frisbees into a techy aircraft wing.

GYRO(tm) boosts the inherent gyroscopics with a weighted rim.
The end effect of boosting gyroscopics is that your train conductor, the wing of the disc, stays oriented for optimal flight for a longer period of time.

If the wing is your train conductor, GYRO keeps him awake longer, taking the train farther down the tracks before he falls asleep and crashes the whole thing.
