well i'm sold on the amp already. the hyzer-flip finish right is one of my go to shots, and the sound of a pre beat in leopard is music to my ears.

It's also a half step slower imo. The glide is similar, but I feel like the Shock glides better at lower speeds. The Shock is a bit less nose angle sensitive than the PD, so it's easier to work lines with anhyzer... Overall the Vector is a flatter Roc with gyro. It may be the most irreplaceable mold in my bag at this point.
...They all share some flight characteristics that include more forward push on the flight lines. It's difficult to describe beyond that, but it does take some adjustment. MVP discs are also rounded where the inside of the rim meets the flightplate.
perfect. i don't normally play the fade like most people, i prefer a straight shot that is can be worked left or right and glide to the basket.
as for the rounded rim, i have quickly learned to love the rounded anodes and sadly wizards are starting to feel weird.

on a side note, i'm probably going to drop the remainder of my tax return on a bulk order from MVP directly. has anybody had any experience doing this? seems the way to go, if you're gonna go for it

Anodes are pretty much the same as far as I can tell. Some people think Neutron plastic grips better than Proton so you might want to look into that.

i was thinking that would be a possibility. i have to get 32, and that's enough for a ton of backups, or... a possibility to recoup some cash, and save you guys some money on a few new discs!

new shock vs old shock
Mike (or anybody), can I see a profile pic of the old Shock vs a Volt? They have some Shocks at my local PIAS but I can't tell which run they are.

i guess i should say, i have to get at least 32 discs for the direct order. if people want to jump in on this, i'm down to collaborate. i'll probably be sending my order in at the beginning of next week, so if you know what you want, shoot me a PM over the weekend. fyi, the bigger the amount the better

They are really hard to distinguish visually. The better way is to feel the mold seam near the base of the wing for flash. The early run Shocks/Volts/Amps all have considerable flash there, where as the new Shocks have no flash on the mold seam.

Yah Kaiser MVP is very efficient. I split an order with a friend to stock me for the season for throwers. The shipping price is very reasonable through MVP, they get the order out quick, and it comes quick. You'll ( or the buyers obviously) may spend way more proportionately to ship out subsequently through the postal service unless you have a cheaper way. My buddy spent more shipping half his order to him from me than I did for the entire order to me from MVP. They a very respective of your color and weight choices as well.
