Donating to Science...

So MVP is a [fairly] new company, and thus far I've seen/heard nothing but wonderful things when it comes to durability. That said, has anyone seen one after being drastically weathered? I haven't, and highly doubt anybody else really has - so I'm donating an Anode to mother nature.

I've fondled/thrown discs that have been in the woods for a year (or more), water for a year (or more), and though they definitely gain/lose certain properties to their plastic, for the most part they stay the same. Some discoloration and/or deterioration may occur, and the disc may get stiffer, but like I said for the most part nothing too too crazy occurs. What will happen to the overmold 6 months from now? a year from now? 4 years from now?

Thats a good question. I have tortured mine (first rin vector) so far, max drive into a tree at 5ft - 10 times in a row. Got some funny marks in the flight plate, but no bends yet. I do know that the overmold DOES NOT do well against concrete impacts, however NO OTHER discs like concrete either so.....I'm curious about long term water exposure???? mabe that would soften the medium plastic?????

Sounds similar to a Glock torture test. Glock is releasing a Teebird like disc soon. Polymer base!

Plastics lose elasticity with age/exposure/leeching. The plasticizers and oils deteriorate, and the product gets stiffer, or even brittle, depending on the plastic type and formulation. That said, the premium plastics used for discs can handle an awful lot of exposure before losing their qualities.
