Thus, when I have to replace a disc, I can count on the new one to be very similar to the one I lost, which is quite important to me
The thought of me searching through a stack of the same disc to find one that will be to my liking seems maddening. Toss in the fact that some manufactures want to tweak their molds and really not really tell people and it's even more of a turnoff. Until recently I picked up all my plastic online, site unseen, compounding the problem.

Like any new company they seem to have had some slight growing pains. It takes time to prefect your art, and they seem to be doing well. Hell they redesigned the way you make a disc and actually made it more consistant then the companies that have been at it infinately longer. The Shock release seems to have had hickups, but they listened and fixed it. Tangent release went seemingly flawless. No color/dome confusion, just a great disc. People said MVP's disc wern't great in the wind, and now we have the Tensor coming next week. Can't wait to see what the next 12 months have in store from MVP.

Seems like every new MVP mold I pick up I am more impressed. Started with an axis, and really liked the flight/ feel. It just goes exactly how you throw it. This was awesome for me because my form needed major work. The Gyro really helped me to get the snap on the disc because they just won't preform well without it. Vector has become another of my favorite disc. My longest mid and really does fairly good in the wind. Just got a Tangent and early impressions are good, but it still remains to be seen if it will knock my beloved Comets out (it probably will.) The Ion has become my go to putter and is exactly what I've been looking for since I started playing. Just picked up 3 more for pratice and boxed up my other putters. The Anode is a good disc in it's own right, but I prefer a beaded putter and enjoy the slight fade at the end of the Ion's flight. The drivers have opened a new world to me. Previously I was maxing out my TL around 250. Not far, but my form sucked. Hit 300'+ with my Volt this weekend for the first time ever. Did it a couple of times. Also really like the scooped feel of the rim. New run Shock is fantastic in the wind and I love the predictability of it. Picked up an Amp today and I'm hoping for good things. Already have a tensor paid for at my newfound local shop.

Do MVP disc make you better? I don't know. I do know that since making the switch right after joining here I have been playing a ton more and my shots have steadily improved. Having fun is what it's all about, and these disc just beg to be chucked. They continually put a smile on my face, as well as conquer my bag.
