I will say.. volt does hold a nice long slow anhyzer line from a flat fast throw with a littttle forward finish i love when some of the US discs just burn or turn too soon/too much. Its the only disc I have enjoyed as much as the Striker which before was on its own level IMO'

New shocks look to be a perfect compliment to the volt.

Not trying to detract from your point, but it seems like there is another quality disc manufacturer who cares.
It's not about who cares...It's about resources. Latitude is a financial juggernaut that came into the sport with more capital to burn than anyone ever had before them. They mold for Westside, and I'm pretty sure if the discs do not turn out to Westside's satisfaction they it's Latitude that's swallowing the cost. Westside didn't have to "learn" to make discs at all. On the other hand MVP started with nothing other than a loan the brothers got from a third party (which they paid off very quickly), and since has been reinvesting every dollar earned toward making the discs. I'm pretty sure they still don't pay themselves (tightwads). At any point if MVP would have made so great a mistake that they had to scrap 1000 discs it may have shut them down.

In other words these matters are a little too complicated for us to really play armchair quarterback as to who's motives are purer or who "cares" more as their is no real evidence of malicious intent. We are talking about 3 really solid companies (MVP, LAT, WS).

^ good post by discspeed.

The similarity between the lat64/westside/prodigy/mvp release errors is that they all did something about it to fix it.
That shows they care enough for me.

Even though my shocks aren't what I expected, they are still a good disc, and refunding all that money etc is just going to slow down the process of getting better as a company due to less capital.

Besides, I edited my old shocks with a marker and made them an mvp shook lol so when the new runs get here I'll have shooks and shocks

Wish it would have been called the spock though, then I could have made it the spook and put a ghost on it

Lol that could get you in some trouble, especially if it's the white bedsheet type of ghost....

So what you're saying is, when I send out a newsletter tomorrow with a bunch of pre-order items, it should include the new Shocks?
