Give or take a gram the cores are the same.

Putter cores are same
Midrange cores are same
Fairway cores are same

Over-mold is what decides final weight.

From my communication with Brad this is fact.

The cores of putters might be a different weight than cores for fairways, but any 2 fairway cores should weigh the same.. if that makes sense?

Correct. I'd love to make it over to SR, but it's a 3 hour drive from MPLS.

Thank you for sharing this little tid-bit of MVP manufacturing. I figured the cores were different weights and the overmold was constant. But, it's the other way around.

Now, here's the question. Have they run a light core?

For example:

Would an utra-light core on a Vector with a normal weight overmold produce a disc that flies anything like a Vector should? Perhaps not. What if, by way of making an ultra-light core, they essentially produce a new disc?

Maybe we could see 150 class mids and drivers, with known flight differences, BUT with the same consistency MVP is known for, in their respective weight classes.

Or maybe...they've already thought of all this and it's on the drawing board?

One can only dream.

I'm sure they have more on their drawing board than we can imagine.

Someday MVP could come up with jr version of Axis etc (i.e. smaller diameter) to achieve lighter discs in 150 to 165 range having similar flight characteristic. Similar to Lat64 with their Diamond.

From what I remember reading the core plastic has no weighting agent in it. So to make a lighter core they would need to use different plastic or add bubbles(blizzard) to get the weight lower.
