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

i like MVP like that.
It was just an illustration, but I wanted to see if this was indeed a Sentinel mold. I would have been super stoked. I bet it's great though. Just will have to find one to see how it fits in with my Buzzz/Drone set up, with the Z Hornet now working it's way up from the minors.

safe to say that those aren't "first run" at least the stamp doesn't say so.

I bought 2 first runs. I have an unthrown clear first run vector that is way domier than the flat orange one I chose to throw. I am resisting pulling that mf off the shelf to see what the difference is.

This sport creates the weirdest conflicts in one's brain.

the disc says "throw me"
my brain says "don't throw it!"

the course says "you'll never find this clear disc you shouldn't have thrown in the first place"

thank you disc golf for helping me hone and evolve my faulty brain.

Have that same issue with my cryztal Nukes, want to throw but my brain says no.

By the way, I have a clear FR Vector, nice and domey, and I think it will take over the OS Midrange duties of my Wasp. It was a little more overstable, I thought it was inbetween the Wasp and Hornet. I really liked it, and if it is as durable as my IONs I'm hooked.

I know exactly what you mean. That's why Fuchsia RIT was invented.

And I have one flat orange and two more domey Vectors (clear before/fuchsia now and green) and the flat orange is waaaaay straighter. Still has plenty HSS, but the LSS doesn't kick in nearly as soon.

MVP Club Order Question

I sent a general question to your contact on the website and was told we needed to make a minimum disc order of 32 to get a club rate. While, I wish Zebulon club could afford to purchase that many at one time, we just can't.

I think we can move the ION's and Vectors b/c they're semi-hot and people will be curious but that would take almost our entire budget. Are there any third party vendors you can suggest that might be able to help us purchase 10 at a time?

I have all but decided that I don't like this disc. Something about the diameter and rim keeps me from getting clean releases with it. It's supposed to be a workable mid but it just doesn't seem that way to me, b/c I keep OATing it for some reason (I don't do this with any other disc) and it flutters and goes too straight. It's baffling, me and this disc can't get on the same page for some reason.

Has anyone noticed any difference between the first runs and current run?
