hyzer flip is releasing it on a slighty over-stable angle. the disc then flattens out and flies straight instead of turning.

i think mvp's "fairway" drivers are long and fast enough that a speed 11 "distance" driver might not be enough. if these guys are going to put out a distance disc, they should do at least a speed 12.

but i do like the rest of your ratings.

All MVP discs are capable of big D for their respective "speed." They won't have to stretch the rim out too much on their "distance drivers" to please big arms.

i'm speaking mostly of overlap. shocks (and previously PDs) get out there pretty far. there's a reason i don't carry a wraith anymore.

So the biggest hole in MVP's lineup seems to have been a mini marker? I can't wait to hear from the testers. Hopefully Mike C will post a video of it sitting on the ground.

I think Johnny was suggesting powering up a volt with a hyzer flip to get more D out of it.

And in other news: Got my Tangent and Amp yesterday. Twin Eclipse soft Anodes arriving tomorrow. The weekend will be grand, hooray!

Of course. The dense overmold will create a gyroscopic effect and make the mini marker lie flat when sitting on the ground. Its all about moment of inertia and rotational velocity, but you can count on this mini to improve your lie.
