If we all become friends, will they release the Volt sooner?

get real guys.. this glossy plastic they have works great for normal conditions, but anything other than normal conditions and they become harder to grip.

i took my Neutron Ion out for a spin today and it landed in some very fine dusty dirt and my fingers just slipped all over the disc when trying to keep a grip... it SUCKED.

Most importantly, why wont they make Stiff discs.. this is what many of the people i play with want.. i talked to Dave Feldberg about MVP briefly and he said he didnt like how soft these discs are, He and I agreed that its harder to have a consistent grip and flight when you cant even get a solid firm grip on your disc.

So 2 things...

1 - Plastic with a different feel or consistency
2 - Plastic that is more stiff and allows for consistent grip and flight


Now im going to get flamed by some MVP fan boy tards im sure..
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE MVP discs! i just want them to be the best in every way

This is my feedback to MVP
So you and Dave don't like soft ones huh. Proton is very stiff, I'd say MVP is as stiff as anything Innova makes.

As stiff anything Innova is currently making, though there are a lot of old Innova discs that are stiffer. As the sport has grown the PDGA has toughened up on enforcing rigidity standards. This probably has to do with more people playing and greater chance of injury.

I have a brand new Proton Anode right here with me. Very little flex to it, and it definitely wouldn't flex with the benign motion of a putt. As Discspeed said before though, the "Medium" 2nd runs, along with the FR Vectors were VERY stiff.

Can it be verified that all the textured opaque discs were done during one run? I find this terminology to be somewhat deceptive. I would think that with how many of the textured ions there are floating around there would have been more than one run. I have also seen sellers calling anything opaque "2nd run" textured or not.

So is the vector/axis next? Or will they not release any more neutron until the volt is ready?
