I dont have any new ones yet, but i saw a PLH pic and it will be much higher than the volt. You will KNOW when its a new shock.

I would stock up on them honestly
Is it different and useful enough that it should be part of MVP's lineup? If so then the question is could MVP make both and have them be consistent? They could call it the ShLock or Shock Lite, PreShock, Shock L, or Shock US.

eh seem too close to the volts IMO really no need for both runs of shocks to be in production... I do believe though their distance driver will be like a stretched out shock, for some fun speculation

I hate to drag this out, but Westside molded and didn't sell giants because they weren't as stable as they wanted. They made us wait another 5-6 months.

Also they updated the flight numbers on the king to more truly reflect its true flight.

Not trying to detract from your point, but it seems like there is another quality disc manufacturer who cares.

eh.. sure but the king was in production for monnnnnnnnnnnths before they changed anything and they changed the NUMBERS, not the mold-- they know their ratings were F'd where MVP has none yet for that exact reason... its in the works to correctly represent their molds not vise-versa.

you can throw my Volt into a headwind.. add some hyzer on the release and it will flip up straight.

I would like to see the new shock get thrown into a headwind, i have a feeling it will fight wind very well.
