Hit a basket's pole off the tee and I think it hit the screw that holds it into the sleave. I noticed it when I picked it up and the rough top of the screw was poking out the side it hit so that was my best guess.

plastic cannon: pm me if you want, theres a few I might part with

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.
Sooo how does it fly?! lol

Well, I finally decided to give in to the hype and buy some MVP discs. Hopefully, it will stop snowing sometime soon so I can actually get out and test them


169g Neutron Amp
177g Eclipse Vector
177g Eclipse Axis
175g Eclipse Ion

Even if they don't end up breaking into my bag, at least I have a glow set up now!

And you had better believe that blank red discs are going to end up with some sweet St. Louis Cardinals art!

Would have gone volt for amp but OOooOoLAlalaALaaa!

You will enjoy. Take a little getting used to but they just fly nice and consistent-- You throw bad and they tell you, you throw good and its a thing of beauty. Try long anhyzer lines with your vector and sweeping hyzers with the axis... you will be very impressed even though one is OS and one US (well... not really at all its stable, bought one thinking axis was understable but that is not really the case when new)

I went with Amp figuring I could get a new run Shock to complement it if I end up liking MVP that much. Plus, the Ascent has the stable fairway slot on lockdown in my bag.

Yeah they are basically the same disc specially depending on your power level... If you are not throwing 350-400 then they really is not much of a difference just a bit less HSS. Looking forward to the new Shock also!!

Amp is a good disc but not as understable as i would have liked, i prefer my 175g GL River for an under-stable fairway.

You MUST get a Volt, its a great all around disc for all types of lines, hyzers, long power annys that always come back at the end, and everything in between.. versatile, i would consider it to be MVPs best fairway disc, i use it often.

The Shock is going to be a great stable disc, think of a higher speed stag

I too favor my River over my Amp even alongside my Shock and Volt. I tried, but it's one or the other.

I've only throw my Amp a little, but so far it really does feel like my Volt, only a tick less HSS. At my 300' power, they're pretty much interchangeable for me as far as I can tell. Heck, the same can be said for my first run Shock. All three are about the same disc to me with very slight differences.
