I'll second the light-weight orange being flatter. Significantly so and with a lower PLH. (Comparing to a 175 dayglow.)

Yup! Hands down becoming my favorite driver. I get disappointed anytime I step up to a mid-range tee. And then I rationalize throwing it anyway.

YEp, its easy to power down for midrange shots.. and still just as consistent with less effort.

Too bad for the MVP haters out there who are missing out on the best disc to hit the market in years

Not picking sides or anything, but honestly, all of the MVP homers have said that exact thing about every disc they have released, hard to take youguys seriously anymore

Thing is, you don't have to take us seriously. You don't even have to take our word for it. We're completely content throwing MVP's wonderful discs regardless of the hype or anti-hype.

But I think it's telling that the consistent response from those that throw MVP is largely positive. Sure there are built up expectations. Sure there are hardcore dedicatees who will not say a bad thing. But time will tell--and it has. Most of the guys who throw MVP and love them have also thrown a bunch of other discs. If MVP consistently wins out, there's a reason.

Also, I don't think anyone's saying these are magic discs that will make everyone's game better--and I'll be the first to say they are not "beginner-friendly" discs. So they are not universally incredibly. But in the context of those who are testing them and loving them, there's a good reason we're excited.
