Yah, we did it for the children in Haiti, or was it for my own competitiveness............yah....um something like that.

But in all seriousness the tourney was worth it alone just to see some of the craziest 100 foot skips, levitating discs, backwards bounces, and delayed chainouts i could ever imagine. Tons of respect to all the burly New England golfers who made it out to raise money for charity and have fun.

Random thought......

What if MVP made a putter with a profile similar to the ringer/zone?

I know there is a lot of love for those style putters (mostly for approaches or drives).

Not sure it would be possible, but it would be the overstable putter many ppl want from MVP and attract inhterest from the zone believers

I've tried to get quite a few rounds in with the amps and shocks to get a feel for them and compare them to my older volts. For me, these definitely deserve to be in the bag. My amps are my workhorse drivers for both FH and BH. I've only been throwing BH for a couple of months but I can control the amps and shocks a little easier than the volts BH. BH distance is between 260-320'. I do not throw any of them at full power, either FH or BH.

With a FH, thrown flat, my volts have a little turn and a consistent forward fade. I use them when I have room to work the flight path or when I need to hold hyzer/anhyzer lines. My amps are my "bullets". I'll hyzer flip them for low, dead-straight shots where accuracy is necessary. I'll also use them when I need a turnover shot. My shocks have less HSS than my volts so they will flip up, fly straight and have a harder fade. FH distance ranges from 280'-340'.

The thing I like most is there are only a small number of distance control-shots or conditions that I need other discs besides these three. I don't use them for headwinds, meat-hook or long-distance duties. They don't fly drastically different but each of them excels at different lines. I also like that they don't feel any different in the hand and I can throw each of them the same way and achieve different but planned results.

I'm looking forward to newer shocks that are more resistant to turn as that would be a very nice addition in the line up.

TLDR: I like all three control drivers.

I'm waiting for this, along with a Magnet style putter.

I've been playing some rounds with an all Neutron MVP bag here for the last month. I've noticed my new Axis having more fade toward the end of it's flight. Is this common for the Neutron Axis? I've got an eclipse axis that will solve that problem but will the Neutron Axis eventually break in to have very little fade and land dead straight? Similar to the flight of a Mako?

The Neutron Axis definitely has some fight left at the end of its flight. It is nice and stable, and able to take a good rip without turning over.

Neutron Axis is the best disc MVP makes

If the QMS didn't exist I would be throwing one

cool. Just needed to hear from others. Having a ball throwing all MVP lately. Just something I noticed because I went from throwing all Eclipse plastic mids for a bit to throwing the Neutron's. There's definitely some differences in the Axis flight between the two.

I disagree 100%. Wet Proton is actually MUCH gripper than dry proton, it's too grippy for me to use a proton putter when wet. The reason is that the water allows yout fingerprints to create a suction effect on the disc.
