Interesting. Humidity makes Proton, and any premium plastic tackier. If we're talking about a wet disc, then what I've experienced is slick Proton.

Different strokes for different folks.

Just sell them, or hold on to them as the initial run... someone will probably want them.

This most likely.

Right? Funny Mike C compared his Shocks to a 1.1 QOLF... some people think the 1.1 QOLFs are too flippy for them. For my arm, it's perfect -- it's the only QOLF I've ever used successfully. Now that I've got a stockpile of 1.1s and only 1.1s, I've got a few to sell at a profit.

I might find the new Shock useful, but my guess is that the ones I have are perfect for my arm. The newer Shocks might be a whole new disc for me, or just a headwind version of what I've got now.

Initial test: Cold, no warm up, steady 15-20mph headwind with stronger gusts, 5 throws a piece with 3 Shocks (1 old 2 new), throwing 10-20' high with some hyzer and 300-350' power. Every throw was into the headwind, intentionally.

Results: FR Shock was not wanting to hold the hyzer and wanted to turn over and finish right. New shocks were able to hold the hyzer the whole way through on a clean throw. On a flatter release aimed lower they wanted to stay very straight. On an intentionally OATy throw they would turn over a bit but visibly fight out of the turn before losing much altitude.

Based on my first impression it seems like they will be in between FR Shocks and Z Preds. I think everyone will be happy with them. I enjoy the FR Shocks but to me these will compliment the Volts better because I think there is a bigger stability difference between them.

So about the Axis, most of them are flat right? I've never seen one with dome until I ordered my Neutron Axis. Anyone else have a domey Neutron Axis? How would a flat one compare in flight? Curious...

I looked through Most of the neutron MVP discs at marshal street the other day and could find no appreciable dome differences. Everything seemed to be fairly flat, with a subtle dome. I was intentionally looking for flat and domed ones and couldn't find any that stood out to me.
