For example, on all of my Vectors I can see some little circular marks on the back of the disc. I believe this is because MVP is now propping the domes up from underneath while stamping to avoid these issues. They will probably use this method for stamping Ions as well.
I noticed those on mine. The ones at the 12:00 and 6:00 spots are more pronounced, but there are fainter ones around the rest of the disc.

Another thing that hasn't been mentioned much is how easy these things are to keep clean. We've got a lot of muddy, slushy courses here, and everything just slides off the Vector.

USPS hates disc golf innovation, what other explanation is there?
(btw I let my homies at Prime know that only Texas has the solar power to unwarp a disc)

but really -- coming from another disc brand and now working with MVP -- they give a care about their product more than i've ever seen.

"Retooled Sentinel mold? Run it! Sure it'll be just fine."
vs
"Frisbees? Make 'em better!"

i like MVP like that.

This wait is killing me.

Barely noticeable? Those things are blatantly obvious! And I'm not even talking about the ones under the "ct" of Vector and surrounding the V of MVP. You can clearly see four other rings a little closer to the rim.

0330110728.jpg This is my drop top ION I talked about yesterday.

0330110730.jpg This is the concave one compared to a regular dome. Is this caused by shipping?

I have seen some get a little bit of this with some age and use. Hot weather may have an affect if you have warm weather. Shipping could be possible. There are many factors that could have an affect on this outside the factory.

All I can say is that all the IONs left on the shelf at my local disc shop look like this. I love throwing IONs and would hate to think that a player wanting to try one out would only have these as a reference. This also scares me when ordering online not knowing what "shipping" or "weather" has done to them before I get them.

Are they stacking them at the store? Sounds like they might be the culprits as I haven't seen that myself and them having such a stock like that.
