I feel like my Shock and Tensor are very similar discs within their respective speed classes. I definitely throw them with the same angles and for essentially the same lines (only shorter). Both are overstable, but very workable at the same time as they penetrate forward during their OS action.

I feel the same but with a zone and shock. Both accept slight any for straight lines well, both skip well. Zone obviously must be thrown a bit higher.

Been getting some crazy skips out of my shock/tensor lately and the more I throw it the more I liiiiiiiike.

I like the fact it is just a little bit shorter than my vectors too being a notch more stable its super easy to range. Shock is perfect when the volt cant take the wind but still don't find myself throwing it all the time.

I can agree with this for sure. The Tensor is obviously a lot shorter, probably MVPs shortest mid yet, but I see it and the new run Shocks as perfect cousins. I don't use my first run Shock a lot, but when I need that big fade or it's reallys trong headwind, it never does me wrong.

I threw my friends shock and boy.. The difference in ours is humongous. Mine overlaps with the Volt so much and his is really OS.. Can't wait to get my own ACTUAL SHOCK!

I love my 2nd run shock. It's so reliable in the wind and doesn't turn whatsoever when thrown hard and flat.

so purrrrrty. also must be OS as crazy, looking at it from the side, the PLH is almost to the top, where it seems it has no top at all. flat as you can imagine.

I won it at a raffle. Havent thrown it yet. And yes, all are throwers, no matter how beautiful.

Good news for those whom the Shock is too beefy for. I was messing around under powering my Proton Volts in 250-300', and at those distances it is very dependably straight with strong but not overbearing finish.
