I'm think'n this one is more Katana ish, and the nitro is the Vulcan. Its taller with the same depth so im guessing it has some orbital-like dome.

Or maybe not... The nitro is all but identical to a Max, except for speed..

I think with high speed drivers, it's all about the wing height and dome, which the PDGA specs can't tell you. The rim configuration tells you how sharp it is, which does have some affect, but I'm guessing all the MVP high speed drivers will have a similar sharpness with different wing heights. I'm looking forward to trying out whatever the Destroyer and Tern-like versions of these are when they are released.

I have trouble gripping max speed drivers. So I doubt I will get any of this class, unless I pick up one of the semi-OS ones for FH shots.

These are a notch faster to be sure, closer to Ape, Boss, Katana, Vulcan.

Hmm, I'm not sure about the Ape or Vulcan, but the Boss and Katana are 2.5 cm rims. If these are 2.3 cm, then they'll be slower than that. Also, someone measured a whole bunch of Star Destroyers with calipers a while back and they were all right around 2.3 rather than the 2.2 in the PDGA specs, so I think these should be close.

Maybe PDGA measured these wrong then because both are 2.4, plus inside diameter of 16.3. One measured 21.2, other 21.1 so 2.4 x 2 = 4.8 taken from 21.1 equals 16.3.

Inside diameter of Vulcan, Boss and Ape and Katana all 16.2-3.
