I said a while ago that my plan was to bag 2 of each, one at 170-172 and another at 175. Probably overkill, but I'm going to test it out anyway. The video sold me even more that one of each, at least, would be awesome.

Oh yeah, I'm 100% with you guys about featuring various skill levels. This one was kind of an experiment in our off-time. Next one will feature more throwers and commentators, or so I've planned. If we touch on MVP drivers again, it'd be specifically to address power levels.

That's my experience as well. To throw my amp flat, and it stay flat, I needed something close to 250 feet of power on it. I used it for lower power 300 foot straight shots a few times and i still had to put a touch of hyzer on it to get it to fly flat.

Great video Disc Nation guys.

I did find it funny that the guy doing commentary is constantly saying how these discs do exactly what control drivers should, and that they're all really familiar flights, but ZJ is constantly saying how these are completely new types of discs and you absolutely can't compare them to anything else. In any event, good job on the footage and the commentary and thanks for posting it.

Well how many companies are able to offer 3 legit control drivers that don't need to season to hit a sweet spot? That is sort of what I've been getting at. You will know how to throw them off the shelf, but the optimal flight and disc shapes aren't copies of anything else available

Plus there is some marketing involved in that video. It's simple and relatable for a reason, mainly because not everyone who sees the video is a forum geek

okay so I watched the MikeC vid and it showed about the same lines as ZJ. The disc looks different from the Volt in flight. Both discs appear very workable but the late, strong fade of the Shock is noticeable.

Hell yeah. I love MVP and want them to have another successful disc launch. It just sounded like people were underwhelmed by the Shock reviews, but I think your DN video helped explain the discs and their respective strengths. As you can see in my signature most my discs are MVP and I plan on bagging at least 2 Shocks. I can't wait for these.
