So, does this compare to a banshee?

You're probably right. I've never seen that pale pink in person, but I could imagine it blending in with light colored dirt and sand really easily.

MVP needs to make a bright green disc. I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

No, not nearly that overstable. Banshee is a pretty extreme utility disc. Shock is a stay-flat-and-fade driver... workable in the wind but by no means a headwind killer like the Banshee. Maybe a beat Banshee. Orion LF stability.

One thing I have been wanting to add about the flight difference between the Shock and Volt.

If you watch the Disc Nation video, there is a clip of back to back comparisons of the Shock and Volt on shots that move left to right(for RHBH). It is the part where the Shock goes into the Soccer net. The volt needs a lot more air to get a shot that will flip up to the right and then fade back left. The shock however can hold long low flat flips, where it tracks right and then fades left with only 10-15ft of air. The Shock is overall much better at holding low lines that will not bounce around in the air

Sounds like you and me have had the exact same experience with the Shocks. Well said.

Yeah I think people were hearing that the shock could flip, but unable to understand why it was a different flip. That didn't click with me until I saw it on film. The Shock is much better at holding onto low flat lines even if it is flipping.

I am also colorblind.. So pink is usually easy to see in the summer time but yellow is fantastic in the show. Recently I needed glasses also.. So disc golf in the show is an extreme challenge.

Also a bright green disc would be awesome. I'm going to buy a shock in blue because well blue looks sweet. Black and Yellow are currently my favorites though.

MVP made a smart move with Neutron. Proton always looked slick but it can be a little tougher to find, especially if its not eclipse. These bright pink and green Neutron discs are among the easiest to find I've thrown.

I picked a shock up yesterday. Reddish orange, 170g. Haven't thrown it much but I am really digging these new MVP discs. My volt took some getting used to but I made two fantastic shots with it yesterday. I'm gonna look into picking up an amp in due time as well.
