I know that all of their discs are some-what based on other molds, but my game improved when I started throwing them, plain and simple. I believe that once they start cranking out drivers and get a couple of big name endorsers, MVP will become one of the leading companies in disc golf.
I fully endorse this post.

My putting game was very inconsistent until I got my hands on an MVP (soft) Anode, now it is one of the stronger parts of my game. Used an Innova (star) Dart for a long time, but was simply to inconsistent to putt with. Tried various other makes and models before seeing glowing endorsements for MVP and Lat 64 putters here on DGCR. Tough choice for me between the Pure, Spike and Anode. The Anode won out for me and I am now a big fan of MVP. Got an Axis on order because of how good the Anode experience was. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder as they say.

Oh yeah, forgot to comment on that part. The overmold is plastic. It's main purpose is to add dense weight to the edge of the disc. One big difference I notice with MVP discs, is that they keep trying to push forward when the "nick" a tree, instead of just kicking out to the side. I'm not sure, but I suppose the overmold could have something to do with that.

I SQUARED a tree last night at leagues with my Axis, and it still ended up 30ft past the tree it hit.

A lot of local golfers were given these discs in the players packs at BG Am Champs
and sold them w/in four to five weeks.Making it in the DG world on a gimmick cannot be easy.

My local pias can't keep MVP discs stocked even at 20$ a pop. And nothing wrong wih kids playing disc golf and having fun

Just fast. Never really got the time to give them a little air to see how far they will glide to go along with the speed. I also found these things to be pretty stable all around. I'll try to get them out tomorrow, or Wednesday at the VERY latest to get a good read on them.
Try some aired out anny drives with yours...they're sick for that.

If you watch hole 7 with the hanging basket I tried that crazy anhyzer route the first day I tested mine out. It's an even tighter gap now since the pines have matured. Was soooo close to acing it wih my pink one...it was going right at it as far as I could tell but hit a branch at the last second. Still a satisfying drop in bird.

Also Anodes blow my mind with how dead straight and neutral they fly while still being able to fight moderate headwinds off the tee. I have never seen any other putter act like that.

I'd love too, if I had time. Probably won't get out until Thursday at leagues again.
