also more interesting, i just gave menacewarf a sword and have one myself for all out max distance. so fingers crossed, it would be a rather seamless transition if what you say is true.

on a side note, mvp is addicting like lays chips, bet you cant just have one.
The Volt and the (VIP)Sword have a very similar stability and flightpath, and both are equally useful on all three basic release angles (flat, anny, hyzer). The Swords you have sound a bit less stable than mine...I don't think twice about throwing my Sword in a 10mph headwind. I hope that MVP's distance driver comes out like my more HSS Swords, though a little more wind resistance would be nice.

Think he said besides distance.

I definitely see a bit of the similarity jake mentions except for the volt just has that unique MVP flight where before any LSS stability kicks in the Volt just flies in another gear. Jake has commented on the volt seeming "glide less" but what I think what he notices is that it seems to fall out of the sky once LSS kicks in and my theory is that that is when the GYRO influence really dies back too. To contrast his DD Escape glides right through the LSS. It could just be the way I throw too.

To be honest I don't have my form dialed enough this year to be the best judge of a speed 12 disc yet. Also I've only chucked the Sword a handful of times. I've been maxing the Volt around 420-430 and haven't got any further than that with the sword yet.

yea, i started with the tourny 170g, nice tight s flight. so when i got a 175 vip i figured it would have similar flight with a decent bit more fight to it but...not much different. might have to have you hand pick one for me at some point when im ready to order or just anxiously await mvp

Thinking about this a bit more I think the way my Volts fall as LSS kicks in helps the volt function as a "control" driver. I think it is a contributing factor to never losing mine to the right during headwind shots or slightly over torqued shots.

I've never used another driver which has such resistance to drifting right or hyzering out. From a total of now a few hundred volt drives I've thrown exactly 2 hyzer shanks and 0 turn and burns.

i think MomentuM would make a sweet disc name for something like a sword. so many obvious reasons it fits with mvp too. from mass and velocity to how momentum can change a round or whole tourny....its even fun to say

Blasted center chains on hole 1 of my course today with my bagged Shock for what would have been a likely skip Ace if I had installed a second set of chains on my baskets . Instead it tumbled right through and landed 5 feet away. I think that's enough to get me motivated to start pricing out chain.

I took my soft anode out on sunday to see what it's all about. Had two cage hits and two chainouts in 18 holes with it. I think it made the audition.
