Hmmm, sounds promising. Would you say it's comfortable to forehand?

I personally am not one to usually be successful forehanding large diameter mids of any sort, however I am suspicious that they would have potential for those who can. The bottom wing/rim is smoother which may help for a cleaner release. This is just me speculating.

I'm ordering one asap and I plan to do a video review of it showing the profile, the disc in action and all that. I'll include FH throws too.

This has probably been brought up, but would it be possible to make discs with the inside being baseline type plastic and keeping the outside premium? This would be especially good for putters and mids by giving you grip + durabilty.

Is there a plan to develop a more understable putter that will be kinda like the old ion? I feel like that could be very popular too

MVP won't answer that, but I can't think of any reason why they wouldn't. The new Ions are definitely slightly overstable compared to the old slightly understable ones. As I've mentioned before it would be very easy for them to make a bigger overmold to obscure the bead on the Ion core and make the disc less stable and more gyroscopic. I would love to have a less stable putter in the clear plastic because I strongly prefer the feel and glide of my new Ions over the old ones. I'm releasing my new Ions with anhyzer for straight shots currently, but I'd love a new hyzer flipper. Considering Ions are so durable, I think MVP really needs something that flies "beat" out of the box.

Enjoying the Vector

Maybe I need to try an Ion next..

Edit; ^That dye is sweet.
I feel the same way about the Vector. I mostly used the Roc as my mid-range, but the Vector has been slowly replacing it as my go-to disc. I still keep the Roc on hand for certain shots, but I feel like I have more control with the Vector.
