Does anyone know if any pros actually throw MVP discs? I know they are relatively new, but I was wondering if a pro perhaps carried any ions (even though im sure most pros are sponsored so they can only throw their brand)..

Not to my knowledge, but I think that's more a function of the fact that MVP doesn't (yet) have any fairway driver or driver models yet, so a pro couldn't go full MVP.

Some pros have mixed bag sponsorship such as Nikko. However I don't think Nikko would ditch Wizard in favor of Ion Nikko could play with Ion very well I am sure after some adjustments.

Nikko is Dave's nephew and gets to cherry pick his Wizards, I don't see him changing... =)

I'll bet there are plenty of guys out there who cash in Open and have an MVP disc or two in the bag. As far as the touring guys go, obviously most of them are already sponsored. I think the Axis/Vector as a 1-2 punch are as good or better than any pair made by any other manufacturer, but guys that have been playing a long time are slow to change their short range discs in particular. Give it a couple years for all the good Ams scooping up MVP's discs to start moving up the ranks. I'm sure that some day in the future MVP will have a full lineup of discs and a sponsored team on the tour.

Could you imagine family get togethers between Dave and Nikko if that ever happened? Awkward would be an understatement.

The Axis has hit the stores Gentlemen. Dodo's in Allentown has the Axis on the shelves. Not sure what weights they have in but they are available.

I'm sure Nikko would go to the Ion if they paid him..from what I heard Nikko is not getting paid by Gateway at the moment.
