i have noticed the lighter mpv drivers to be less flippy than the heavy ones.

my 171,167 volts are more stable than my 175 one same plh/molding.

I throw on same line not overpowering, I do not have throwing form issues.


can anyone chime in on the amp if thats the same boat.

I have noticed that but only on certain colors...my black is somewhat flippy at 173g. But my blue 174 is straight as an arrow with fade. My red 169 is my hyzer flip disc currently. It will flip up go straight then fade. One of the reasons I have so many volts.

I've had the same experience--max weight yellow/lime for me flies closest to what I believe the disc should do.

I have lighter Volts and Amps that fly more stable than their heavier counterparts. But this is most obvious when the lighter one is in white. I still operate under the assumption that white is, for whatever reason, more stable.

Dang it so there is a chance the two 168 white blank amps i ordered from MST are going to be more stable than intended... Sigh the quest for a hyzer flip a curve amp continues

Question to all Volt throwers:

How would you say it compares to a Opto Saint?

Flies about the same, but with way more distance potential IMO.

Looking to trade my 167 9/10 Volt for a 170-171, if anyone is interested.

Chad has confirmed that the driver cores are the same.

I'm going to be ordering a volt tonight, most of my drivers are right around 170 so I should be good to stay at that weight correct? I don't have a ton of power and am currently trying to dial in my form to increase that but I'm probably hitting about 300 on average with a teebird when everything goes well.
