Dye different stuff on each one, problem solved. And they can tell its bigger in diameter because the measurements listed and the max weight (which correlates to the disc diameter)

Maybe it's size in relation to the crossword puzzle below it?

come on guys,u know people are lazy and dnt feel like actually looking at the disc to see if it's different from a putter. It needs to be much more easy!

GIVE TO WADDLY NOW!!!!!

I will be buying one off of the first shipment that Gotta Go Gotta Throw gets.

I hope there are some blank tops available in the first shipment.

I wonder what the intended flight path is supposed to be. I hope it doesn't overlap too much with a Buzzz or Fuse. If it does, I'd probably end up having to dropping those two discs in favor of a Vector...

From a marketing stand point it would probably be smartest to have something that flew like a Buzzz. A neutral disc that could fit into more peoples bags.



Once this disc is released, I can have a battle of the glidey mids: Fuse vs. Vector.

If you can't tell a putter from a mid by looking at the shape of its profile, you should probably stop playing disc golf now.

There are only a couple of protos right now I'm guessing, so I'm not getting them to test until the first production run. I'm sure they will tweak some things and the production run will be more polished anyway.

It looks from the specs like a Buzzz/Core as it has a slightly longer wing than a Buzzz. This is pretty much exactly what Chad and I discussed last summer. I can't wait to throw it! My favorite disc of all time and the source my label on DGR may be in jeopardy of leaving my bag!

Yeah, just when I thought I had my mids nailed down, MVP has to go and do this... I loved the Ion as an approach disc, but slowly grew to hate it as a putter.

I can't see it gliding better than a Fuse, though, the Fuse is a 21.9cm, plus the Swedes mix magic into their plastic blends.
