It's a great utility fairway for me, akin to my trusty old Eagles, and I use them and my Patriot for most line shaping shots. I still love the Volt, but it has slightly less turn and definetly not the same level of hard fade.

The new Shocks, on the other hand, are truly overstable. I can crank on them as hard as I can (again, low-power player here) and see nary a degree of turn, but still that hard fade. I sued to think the Volt fought the wind well, but the new Shocks take much more headwind and sidewind without flipping. They aren't a monster wind-eater like a XXX, but I say they fight the wind just as good, if not better, than a Teebird.

I definetly reccomend picking up a new run as a speciality or even utility driver, depending on your skill level.
Maybe understable was the wrong word for it. My Shock does have significantly more turn to it than my river for example. However, that Shock does have its uses. I can throw it at 8 o'clock and it will flip up and go right everytime.

Took my new run shocks out for a test today in some moderate winds.

The shock showed no sign of turn into ~10mph winds. Its totally a new flight compared to first run.

I'm having trouble throwing it straight though, this thing really just wants to fade!

I can throw my volts about 400' and throw them with enough power that they don't fade back. when i throw the new shocks at the same power they are flying straight for a short time, then fading quickly after, i would say at about 50% into flight fade kicks in. This makes them easy to control in winds and on certain situations, but its so over-stable i don't see it being used very often. Its like a predator.

I will have to smack a few trees with it at full power and let it break in a little.. i would LOVE to have a beat shock i think it will be very teebird like, only longer.

any ideas on how to beat it in faster?

I would compare the new Shocks to a glidey Firebird, which is fine but not really what I was looking for.

I've thrown several Shocks from both before the fix and after. Many before the fix represent what the "new" Shock will fly like when beat in. It is much more of a turn and fade flight than a Teebird. It sounds to me like you just need a more stable Volt to compliment the one you currently use. A good HSS Volt is the closest thing yet to an MVP TB.

I just got a 175g Shock from Infinite discs (btw they are having a killer sale for MVP discs) and I am not sure if it is a new or old Shock. Basically for me it has no HS turn and a hard fade at the end. I have never thrown the "new" run but I was surprised that this was so stable considering I thought it was going to be like a Pred.

Okay just reading a bit of the thread I guess mine is a new run. It is not understable at all. It has a good amount of HSS and then a very hard fade 2.5 or 3 at the end.
