Didn't you say that MVP always communicates to their customers every time they make changes?

They have communicated in the past when they make a change for the better.. But how is it possible that i would know EVERY little change they might make? It would be silly to assume they have told us every time they have made a change.

The last change i was aware of is 2 weeks after the release of the shock, they said they found a way to greatly improve on their molding process and would be using the new technique in the future to increase consistency of first runs and new releases from that point on.

I have not tried any of the latest runs of midranges, so im very interested to see if they have adopted new techniques to these as well.

Since they are giving Mike C new runs of midranges, maybe they have improved on something and they feel the need to have him test it.. on the other hand, they are just releasing a new color, could be simple as that.

We will find out when he throws them.

I am gonna try to meet up with my Oaty ginger buddy and an even newer guy and let them get some throws in too.

FYI the only tweaking I've been made aware of so far is the original Ions getting their beads tweaked three or four years avo, and Shocks getting tweaked to have a higher PLH. That's two changes since they've existed, not really a big deal IMO.

There hasn't been any tweaking with the mids. Mike C never said his new Vectors were testers... The mids have always been done on the same machines, where as the drivers are made on their newest machine. They had to learn the new machine which is why they had some issues at first with the driver PLHs.

Anyone know if MVP has any plans to introduce different types of plastic than what they currently offer?

No one knows..

It would be nice to see a cheaper plastic though, something that breaks in quickly.

Its been a while since I've thrown Vectors (Swapped them for zones, then zones for tensors) but these two Neutrons I got fly nice, like my beefy FR proton I've held on to. Its so hard to choose which moderately overstable mid to carry...
