Alright, maybe some people on here can help me out a bit. I am having trouble getting MVP mids to fly with much height off the ground. I thought it was just the heavy Axis I had at first, but I threw a lighter (171) Neutron Vector tonight literally straight into the ground 50 feet in front of me...twice.

Am I not snapping these puppies hard enough, or is there some trick to unlocking the MVP magic?

Pretend there is a 8' or 10' ceiling and throw the disc so that it pops up and hits the ceiling flat on the top of the disc.

They do like to be thrown hard thanks to the gyrotech®.

Had the same problem when I first started throwing the Axis. Just gotta keep with it and give it a little more air and they'll be flying great.

How is it hitting the ground? On an anhyzer line? Flat? Hyzer? If its hitting 50' out on an anhyzer you are probably OATing it.

With my 171 axis had to actively make myself think "smooth throw". Which at first meant lower power. Then once I had my form down I can really rip on the axis for some nice drives

This is just an assumption, but I'm pretty sure he knows the difference between OAT and just throwing low into the ground... You never know, though.

I didn't OAT it. It just kind of went straight down, similar to what happened when I threw an Axis before. I got a couple decent throws with it, just need to take it out for a full workout. Maybe the gyrotech making more weight in the rim throws me off. I'll try and concentrate on smooth and snap and see what happens. Thanks guys.

Could also be the curved inner rim makes you throw nose down

Hmmm, I hadn't thought about that...
