I can relate to this, but the opposite way. When I am throwing my other mids (Pain-Roc3-Element) and don't throw my MVP Axis and Vector for a while (more for the Vector) I turn it over slightly when I do pick it up. I just thought bad form. But if I throw it a couple times I'm back to great placement. Not sure why???

My Amp and Shock I have no problem going back and forth from non-MVP to MVP.

Today, I picked up my Axis and chained out, but took the time to go through the motions about 4-5 times first. So maybe it's mental

The Amp has been in my bag for about two months now. It has proven to be one of the best turnover disc I have ever had in my bag. It definitely has a flight similar to a good broken in Leopard. Dead straight for the first half of it's flight, then it starts turning. If throw low and hard it will not fade back. If given enough hight you can get a slow fade at the end. Very controllable.

You might have a freak, flippy Amp, or mine are freak, stable ones. The ones I have are much more stable than a broken in Leo.

I figured as much. I have two of the exact same 170 Pink and they were both flippy out of the box. At the same time I bought a Volt and it had cosiderably more HSS and LSS. I have read a few post describing their Amps as more beefy than advertised. Mine are very understable.

My white Amp is certainly beefier than a Leopard, but I've grown to love it for what it is none the less.

I've spent sometime throwing that Amp onto pavement and into rocks; the overmold is so solid. I do have a volt that somehow got a cut mark in the wing, but it still flies true. MVP = amazing durability.

From what I had gathered, the stable Amps were the freak ones. The Amp was designed to be somewhat understable/flippy. That's the way mine and others' I've talked to flies. If your Amp is flying like a beat in Leopard, that's good.

Also, I agree with the previous guy. It's such a sweet understable driver. Not too much turn that it divebombs into the ground, and barely any fade.

I had a freak white amp that was more stable, took some boiling water to the dome and that seemed to help it hold turn longer. Still had too much LSS for my liking in an "understable disc"

I have a new amp now that i haven't tried yet so im hoping it flies like a Leo or River. It rained all day and now its snowing hard tonight, if this keep up the snow will never go away

Thats what i get for living in Wisconsin

The weighting agent is what makes the plastic in the overmold more dense. It is either the stiffer proton and the agent makes it softer or it's soft Proton and the agent makes it stiffer (this actually seems a bit more likely).
