I'm right there with you.... I'm gonna buy a few and throw em just because I know I won't have any trouble trading them if I don't like them, but if they are intended to fit the same slot as the Buzzz, they're going to have to glide 30 more feet and make me coffee in the morning to justify replacing my stockpile of Buzzz's.

I'm looking forward to throwing this!!

Ions are great discs, so I'm sure the Vector will be pretty awesome as well.

Side note: I'm liking the naming trend of MVP.. here's hoping for a driver named the "Tensor".
The potential for corny physics jokes is so high.

Buy two Vectors and dye x-hat and y-hat on them, then constantly complain that you can't get enough height on your drives.

Or get MVP to sponsor an open hole on a local course and name it "The Vector Space".

I'll stop now.

I don't think Chad is going to talk too much about flight at this point since the discs that will be sold aren't even produced yet. So Chad doesn't want to speculate, but I'll speculate like crazy since I bear little responsibility for the final product. The bottom line is that I trust these guys 100% to make more awesome discs.
This is quite accurate.

The first midrange I wanted to design was indeed beaded for the reasons I have told discspeed above. I am shooting for at least a stable/slightly-overstable flight. I do not want to give any hints of how it flies with just the protos. We want to button up every last detail and variable before we release/speculate. We have a ways to go yet. However, our first protos were a complete success and we are excited already for how smoothly the Vector is coming along. I will say there are a few design secrets that I have implemented with the new mold that have never been seen before. These things have opened new doors for us at MVP as they are a nice finishing touch on our GYRO™ overmolding technology debuted with our Ion.

I am sorry, but I cannot get any profile pictures yet. As soon as we produce our First Runs, I most certainly will.

Stay tuned and have a Merry Christmas!

~Chad

Hahaha

Or have a designated "Vector Field", where everyone throws their Vectors.
