Wonder how she'll fly? Hah. The Vector I did up turned out a lot better. The Axis got too much suction on the bowl I set it on, it's a domey beast now.


lol good stuff there..

i agree. even at 375/400 range it is plenty stable.

I ask about your distance because the threshold of stability changes as you apply more power in the disc. Discs that are considered "stable" may be more understable for those that have more power. The Volt that I have flips up to flat and turns and doesn't come back when I put more power into it. My good rips are in between 370--400. My Volt did not want to handle that kind of power.

That's what I'm talking about. Those are the ones that I want. I want to be able to lay into it without it turning and burning. I want to get a good "S" line from them. I'm thinking a longer eagle-x in it's sweet spot.

crd_81, sounds like you received an unusually understable one. I can throw mine bh 375-440 and they fly like a broken in eagle x...a little high speed turn, lots of glide, then a reliable fade. They just don't fade as much, but they keep a tight S despite the lack of substantial lss. Same with my forehand, they are my go to fh driver generally, I just don't flick as far.

If you click on the shock comparison link in my sig and skip to 3:30 or so I do some fieldwork with Volts and Shocks and you can see the types of flights I think Volts are supposed to have. How's yours flying in comparison?

"Normal" Volts should be able to handle 400 feet of power on a clean hyzer flip to fade line but I wouldn't call them high speed stable. They have pretty substantial high speed turn. It's a finesse driver. It can take years to beat in an Eagle-X before it hits Volt like stability.

Hah, gonna test it out shortly once I wrap up at work, and some new Amps if UPS brings em today. I got a big MVP shipment coming my way including pretty much every mold they make.

I'm loving my Amp. It's great for hyzerflips, gentle turnovers and it will hold a hyzer as well. I really like that I can take a little off and get a nice straight flight. It also seems to be more predictable than a River, although I think the River probably has more distance potential. The Amp is a really versatile mold, especially for those of us who can't quite throw 400ft yet. It reminds me of a Pro Leopard (One of my favorite discs). It's probably my favorite of the 3 MVP drivers right now (Volt is a CLOSE second).

Great vids! Thanks for doing that. Guess I'd better get a new Shock since I was one of the complainers about its stability.

One thing is for sure, your drives are a ton smoother and longer than mine, so the main thing isn't the disc as much as the player. That is one thing I love about this game - there is always a huge amount of improvement to be made.
