MVP Vector Midrange

This is what Chad just posted on DGR:

Looks like word traveled faster than the PDGA could update their site. I am assuming it will be updated soon.

Long story short, we have been working very hard for this new disc. We have designed our new overmolded midrange! We plan on releasing this new disc in the spring. All the details will be coming with time. Feel free to ask questions! Below is the approval email of our new overmolded midrange, the Vector:

MVP Disc Sports recently submitted the Vector for PDGA testing. This disc passed all PDGA tests, so I've added it to the list of PDGA-approved discs. This disc is now permitted in all PDGA competitions, although formal certification will be made by the Board of Directors at their next meeting. Test measurements are listed below and a photograph of the disc and an updated list of approved discs are attached.

Looks like an Ion. That is going to be confusing in bags. They should do certain colored outer molds for certain discs. Color code the little buggers or something.

Well you can probably tell them apart since one is a mid and the other is a putter.

Looks larger diameter from the pic than an Ion, but I dont know the Ion specs, so Im assuming a little wider rim and therefor faster? Have you gotten to test them Discspeed?

This is great news! I liked the Ion but not so much as a putter and thought I would really like it if they got that same concept into the mid market but was getting concerned as I was working on nailing my mids down that it wouldnt be soon enough. I will hold up any final decisions until I try this.

EDIT: How do I even get the feeling its larger diameter from a pic like that? lol IS that even possible?

Man Frank!! You've seen me play. Not only am I not that good, I ain't too bright. Things need to be real simple. And what if I have been drinking?? Then all bets are off.
