I'll second MVP. Personally, I didn't like the feel of the Tangent--I prefer more shallow than the Tangent--but a lot of people like it. I would also recommend the Amp and Shock, along with the Volt. Generally, I can throw lighter discs further, so I started picking up StarLite and Blizzard Champion drivers from Innova (you might check some of those out, too). However, despite being 25-35 g heavier I can throw MVP's fairways further than anything than a blizzard Katana, and more relianly and accurately. Great discs!

I've got two Volts, an N and a P and I can't throw them properly. I don't have any problem with other drivers in the same speed. (Teebird & XL). I finally am able to throw my Axis with enough snap to go where I point it, so I'm still hoping to get the Volts tamed. But I would not recommend a Volt to rwe366 unless he had a developed game when he left 3.5 years ago.

specially with their new 17mm class of drivers a switch or crave is a better suggestion really.

for one thing the volt is a little faster than a teebird,and the protons are more overstable than the neutron volts if those aren't working for ya try the slower MVP fairway class resistor/servo/crave/switch

Yup, Teebrds are speed 7 and Volts are speed 9 - If you aren't throwing 350ish, the Volt is probably too fast for you.

Ehh, I don't know. I personally feel snap has a good bit to do with it too. My max on open flat is around 320' (average being around 290'), but I can get incredibly straight and long flights from the Volt. Now that it's worn in a bit, it does have a slight high speed turn. Now, I wouldn't recommend the Inertia unless you have a bit more power. I got one (just because I'm a MVP fanboy ), but still am not sure if I'm really getting any more distance out of it.

Then again, the Amp is also pretty good choice for those who can't get quite a straight flight out of the Volt.

Actually I think the Inertia is very easy to throw with a low power requirement. I only throw a little over 300 and the Inertia is now my favorite driver.

I love my ching rocs and have quite a few dx flat top rocs. Are all flat top dx rocs a little "plus mold-ish"? Mine seem to be. What about kc pro flat top rocs?
