The new shocks look super predictable. Hard to say whether I'm more excited for the new shocks or the tangent.

For sure. I can't decide whether to exchange my original Shocks, or keep them and just buy new ones from Justin. Tangent, plus new Shocks in one week? So tempting.

Just wanted to say the Soft Neutron plastic is straight money! Just found a Soft Storm Trooper ION at a local shop. Feels so good!

hopefully i can get some replacements. The shock i threw was too much like my volts. The new ones look like exactly what i need.
Email sent here, too! I'd love to get a replacement Shock with 0 turn and healthy fade! What did folks have to do to get the replacement?....just curious while I wait for a reply.

you have to send it in they inspect it, if they deem it to be defective they send you a new one.

seems pretty awesome, try to get innova to do that!!!

Huh...if I'm sending in a first run, should I be pretty confident they'll deem it defective? I'd hate to dump money into shipping for nothing.

I got the email response, and while I think it's great that they're willing to even entertain the notion of a swap, it's pretty non-committal. The thrust of it is this quote, "Although this disc is not designed to be an overstable disc meant to handle strong winds, it should still have a dependable amount of high speed stability to where it will have minimal turn on throws up to 400 feet in minimal wind conditions.". I see some turn with my 300ft arm, but I don't know if that's as much as they intended or not. I really just want an MVP version of a Teebird, which it seems the Shock was intended to be...or at least my impression of what it was intended to be.

I guess worse-case scenario I'm out USPS first class postage, a whooping $2.xx.

Any stamps, numbers, or otherwise indications that you have an early run or new run on the disc anywhere?
