I just received a pair of max weight Amps I've been messing around with. Still getting a feel for how they respond to different power levels and release angles...

i can tell a big difference between the shock and amp.. they are meant to be a control driver set i think. Only slight differences intended to give slightly different results for slightly different situations.... slightly :P

but to say they are all the same for you would mean your a less consistent thrower. try releasing the amp on a hyzer, then do the same with a shock, you will get vastly different results.

Well, that's how they flew for me. Consistent thrower or not, they consistently flew about the same for me. Exactly the same?...no...but about the same. Considering that I only carry 5-6 discs, it's not enough of a difference to bag one in addition to the Volt, but enough similarities to keep them around for Volt backups.

Actually all MVP discs fly the same, sort of. Once you dial in on one and figure out how to throw it (or throw better) it translates across to the other molds. I can pretty much pick up an MVP product and bag it within a week or two safely.

I get really similar flight paths on Volt and Amp in 200-250' range I notice more differences at 300+.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

Throwing a batch of new Neutron discs on a 380' or so hole at my home course. The volts were 168g and had more turn than the max weights I normally throw, and the Amps I'm still getting used to, but everything pretty much did what I expected. Some wind though, keep that in mind as well.

I can't remember where I saw it posted, but How do you send back your shock for the newer version?

Here.

Just let them know you got the first run defectives, and they'll shoot you an email with instructions.

I'm with you. I threw my Shock for the first time in a very mild wind and the thing turned and burned. I was somewhat disappointed. I'm impressed with MVP's dedication to quality on this one.
