Anyone know if there is anywhere to get a few bucks off each disc if you buy enough MVP? I know they had the misprints thing last summer but that's not exactly what I'm looking for anyway. Like an 8 for 100 type deal? I know, I know, I'm probably dreaming.

Your best bet is probably to try and split a 32 disc order with someone you know and just order from MVP directly.

If you have one now, it's a first run. But as it was stated in the shock thread the first runs have more flashing on the bottom. But you might want to search the thread to know more.

Also why would anyone send these first runs back? They fly similar to the volt and are super duper cool. Just buy a new shock!

Yeah..I suppose I could do that. I need to throw it some more to get a better idea of where it is for me. If it can serve as a Volt backup, might as well keep it.

Some people on here really like the flight of the first runs, so they may be worth holding onto in the event of an increased demand.

169g Neutron Amp
177g Eclipse Vector

175g Eclipse Ion

Even if they don't end up breaking into my bag, at least I have a glow set up now!

And you had better believe that blank red discs are going to end up with some sweet St. Louis Cardinals art!
Finally got out to throw these bad boys. Decent weather today (35 and no wind), but there was ankle deep snow over basically the whole course and only a few teepads were clear. I took some video and I'll get that up tomorrow (going to play a course or two or three).

Anyways, I don't want to judge the discs on this one outing in iffy conditions, so I'll hold off on in depth thoughts for the discs now. I generally liked the discs and the gyro technology obviously helped on good rips (and hurt when I had some OAT). The Ion was exactly what I expected. The Amp seemed to fit my arm speed well, but I can't wait to throw it with better footing. The Vector was a little straighter than I expected but had a good fade on the end. And the Axis... The Axis was amazing. It's straighter than a grizzly's **** and extremely workable, as well as longer/faster than I expected (felt like a shorter/speed 6ish fairway). I did miss the grip of my Vibrams, but the Eclipse plastic was a lot less slick than I expected.

All in all, I'm impressed with the discs, excited to keep testing, and can definitely see myself bagging some (if not a lot). And this is close to heresy for me, but the Axis may replace my Ibex as my workhorse mid at some point.

The Axis is an awesome disc. When it came out in Neutron, I took it out to my home course, paired with Ion/Anode and Eclipse and Neutron Vectors. I used the Axis almost exclusively. I caught up to a group by the third hole and played through with them. The Axis easily kept pace drive for drive with the other guys. (Granted, no hole is longer than 380' at the course, but still--a mid?)

Every time I'd drive with the Axis, the guys would go, "You sure that's a mid?" When I parked a 330' over-the-water, around-four-trees-in-the-middle-of-the-fairway-anhyzer shot, the guys started asking where they could get one of these "wonder discs."

Then this past Sunday, I got similar reactions with the Volt and Amp on some 400'+ holes.

^^ It still amazes me how the Axis locks into a line and just propels. Huge fan of the disc. I've been playing more with the mids than anything else. True workhorse. Can't wait for the Tangent!
