hmmm a broke-in Axis in neutron plastic?
Yeah, about a 9/10 speed. I'm still sticking with a longer TB (or a much longer fresh heavy slightly domey Axis)

A longer teebird makes me pretty excited so I'll just stick to that prediction!

Boo! I WANT AN MVP TEEBIRD EQUIVALENT!

Seriously though, I'm not really understanding why they wouldn't slowly work their way up in speeds, learning along the way. The Volt seems like way too big a jump to me from the Axis and Vector.

I was anticipating a teebird-like disc from them as their first driver also.

Well this sounds great. The Neutron plastic sound pretty awesome and it will be interesting to see if they use it for eclipse discs as well. I wonder how long it will be until they produce the Volt in normal Proton plastic.

Crazy week for me. First the Saint and now the Volt. I hope no other companies I like decide to come out with another awesome disc that I'll have to buy.

I'll have them in stock a.s.a.p.! The only Indianapolis area mobile Pro Shop! And the only Pro shop that stocks MVP.

It's pretty ballsy to go after the pd's market share, nice.
As a pd thrower I like MVP's move here, a driver designed for professionals
A stable speed 9/10 driver fits both the controlled 300'-400' fairway drives and can easily fit the distance driver role. No need for multiple discs.
And as a huge star fan, 90% of my bag is star plastic, I say its about Damn time
Glad to see you guys put a lot of thought into this and didn't just go warp speed. Hope eclipse volts are in the works too, I play a lot of glow and discmania doesn't seem to be in a hurry to make my glow bag..

The "longer teebird" statement makes me laugh every time. Every new disc is always a longer teebird... Even when it has HS turn, "well, it's like a beat in teebird"
