MVP putters feel more average-shallow to me than deep. My Wizard, banger, Aviar P&A, P2 psycho, and big bead aviar all feel deeper than my anode.

On MVP mids, none of my local shops carry them, so I can't feel them up. Do they have the same sort of concave rim as the drivers? I hope that makes sense. I love the grip on the MVP drivers because it feels ever so slightly concave on the inside, so my fingers sort of lock in better than any other driver I've thrown. If the mids feature this as well, I'd definitely give a Tangent or Axis a shot to knock out my Core.
You are talking about the rounded inner portion of the rim where the rim meets the flight plate right? I haven't noticed it on MVP mids but MVP putters have it for sure which makes them money for forehand putts.

I guess that's what gives me that sensation on my fingertips...the rounded portion of the rim where it meets the flight plate. For the drivers, it feels like it really wraps around my fingertips.

I was able to play some more with the Anode after work. It's straight as a damn arrow, this disc...a long-flying arrow. I'm still not sold on the deeper rim verses the Pure, but it doesn't seem to be impacting my throws. I'll keep throwing it for now.

I also got some time in with my Amp, Volt and FR Shock....very calm winds. I did see the differences more this time around. The Amp clearly has more turn on a flat release, but not a whole lot at all. I'd hoped it'd replace my champ Roadrunner, but that's not happening anytime soon. The Volt is friggin' laser-straight for me....and crazy long. I need to work with it more with hyzer angles to get the fade I want at the end. The FR Shock...I can see the turn with a beefier fade than the other two, but I don't really want that. I want straight with beefier fade. If I feel I want a backup for my Volt, I'll just get another Volt. I'll be sending it back in hopes MVP does a swap.

You guys do a pretty damn good job of selling discs for MVP...just so ya know!

glad to hear your thoughts on the discs! Amp will beat-in a little and get progressively easier turn, even my first volt is starting to get some more turn and also goes further than my new ones which seem to max around 370 where the lightly seasoned volts will hit 400+ from the same throw. Same with my FR vector, been playing since it came out and wow it is still OS but just flies so nice some of the longest lateral fading hyzers I have ever thrown with any disc, its UFO like lol...

Plus the putters don't really beat-in to become flippy like so many others I have used in every plastic' And my volts look mostly brand new even from some nice tree smashes so you don't have to cycle new ones in as often either. MVP #FTW!

I got more stable Volt (newer run) and I like it. If I could make a suggestion I would say make the Volt with a little more LSS. That's it.

So I acquired a Shock (first run), Volt, and Amp this winter and am set to break them out this week for the first time. I've read so damn much about them, and am excited to get out there. Based on their rankings/reading review and thoughts on them, this is my preconceived notions of them compared to some of my favorites from Lat64 that they may attempt to replace:

Amp = River
Volt = Vision
Shock = Striker

Of course this will all depend on arm strength, style, personal performance and what not -- but those are my expectations going into it. I throw those 3 Lat discs off of the tee most of the time (although am adding a Saint for the spring as well) and can't wait to see how they compare. I prefer understable drivers (as does my somewhat weak arm/form) so I'm excited to try all 3 out now that the snow is almost gone.

^^^I think you will be surprised.

But, I'm not going to say you are wrong, because only you have your arm, and throwing style.

Report back after you're done throwing them. I'm interested to see how they fly for you.

/agreed

I've only thrown a GL River of those Lat64 discs, but from what I know of them all, I'd be surprised if your MVP drivers matched your expectations at all.

I too heard all sorts of good things about MVP discs and so i bought a volt. I immediately didn't like the harder feel to the plastic and after about five throws the black plastic rim edge had huge chunks and gouges out of it. I didn't like how it flew either, it seemed to lack the glide i was anticipating. I gave it to my brother who was just starting to play but now i feel bad because i really think it won't help his game any but we all throw differently so you never know... Not trying to offend any MVP throwers but I simply dislike MVP discs. Just my two cents, which really ain't worth SH*T these days...

Feel or throw a soft Anode sometime if you get the chance before you totally make your mind up about MVP. That would be the first MVP disc I would recommend for just about anyone.
