After throwing the shock, it flies like I wanted the volt to fly. Hopefully mvp releases a more stable driver

I am no pro by any means or have perfect form but its not that hard to understand that when a disc flutters, flips wayyy right or turns over super early or doesn't flip up/fade out and just fly how it's designed-- you probably &^*%#$ up the throw and have WACK form. But its OK, stay in denial and think that is a "fan boy" excuse for your not being able to throw a mold.

Ok. I am not trying to fan the flames but I admittedly do throw with a little hyzer. This is why I prefer discs that have a little high speed turn. For example I like Eagles over Teebirds for this reason. Which is probably why I like the Shock. About 4-5 years ago I started reading these forums and came to the realization that I had a OAT problem. Since then I began a long road of breaking bad habits. Throwing with a slight hyzer helped me with obtaining consistency in my release. It is probably not the best way but it improved my game immensely.

That's all that matters. If you threw it chicken wing style, and improved your game, then so be it. Do what works for you.

Would you compare the Shock to a eagle-x?
