I would like to see a base line plastic, the proton/neutron stuff doesnt cut it when they get wet.. i know i can just dry it off with my towel, but when its cold out, my fingers are dry its hard to get a good grip. Base line in putters only at least..

I would also be really interested in this. If they are able to bond a gateway soft type plastic for the core to a standard overmold, the grip of the base line top and bead would pair beautifully with the durability of the black overmold. Very tempting idea if it is scientifically possible.

Now I look back at the messge I wasn't exactly quoting him but it there are two statements which combine to approximate what I quoted it.

Thinking about adding to the bag the rest of the MVP line up. I only need the shock and the amp to have them all. I'm a noobie and still have lots to learn but I figure better to get them early in the season and figure the shock and amp out rather then later. What weight should I go for? my Volt is 170g and I can throw it between 275-325 sometimes more on a good rip.

i would rather have a river in my bag than the amp.. im not a fan of the amp, i have only thrown the new run once and it was def more under-stable than the stable "freak" first run i had. the river will do more of what you would want an "understable" disc to do anyways.

The Shock (new run) is beefy, you wont be able to turn it at your power level, it might be a good disc for you on windy days or if you need something that fades far left on a hyzer or something, very useful for certain situations, but the volt covers so much middle ground, it doesn't leave much room for other fairway driver slots

I am pretty happy with the MVP lineup and look forward to possible replacing the Fuse with the Tangent. The Shock/Amp/Volt will probably take out the Teebird/Stalker/River.. (I imagine the Amp/River battle will be difficult) but MVP has really stepped up. I don't see many holes other then the lack of Speed 9/10 distance drivers.

I'd stay away from the "eclipse neutron" thing for a while. I mean, it's possible, but I highly doubt it. Glow proton serves the purpose of...glowing. They've already got the neutron molds, glow molds, proton molds for 4 of the 8 discs, and now they're throwing in sparkles/metal flakes/shinies/glitter/etc on a few limited runs of proton, and I'm guessing eclipse soon too. That's quite a bit of variety, I think the aesthetic aspect of MVP is probably done for a little while.

I'd look for two things...one being that "zone-clone" that everybody seems to be clamoring for. Seriously, how many times have you seen somebody say "I throw all MVP except for a zone..." (myself included for a little while). I can tell you right now that Chad and Brad have almost assuredly seen that and have taken it into account.

Probably a distance driver too. I dunno...personally I feel like they really don't even need one at the moment; but who am I to judge? If there is one, I hope they name it the Impulse.

I'd pay 50 cash for a proton tangent, no questions asked.
