Here's the thing about the OAT stuff. When I was learning to throw with my left (off) hand, I frequently used a lightweight teebird because it would readily show my OAT but it still wouldn't turn over. It would wobble like crazy but it held its line because it was genuinely stable. Once I was able to throw it more cleanly it would go on the same line only much farther and without the wobble. When I would throw one of my valkyries, they would wobble and then crash and burn because they were understable and couldn't deal with the OAT.

My point is, MVP markets the volt as a stable driver. If it were truly stable, it would be able to handle some OAT without a problem. If it can't even handle "micro-OAT" (as discspeed mentioned several pages ago) without flipping then I'm sorry, it's just not stable, at least not like a teebird is stable. It sounds like a valk from everything I've read here.

Based on Mike C's vids and the comments in this thread, it appears that if you throw the volt with a good amount of hyzer (see attached pic), then it will hold it's line, but for those of us who throw flat (and not 100% clean all the time) it sounds like it may not the best "stable" option out there...

my white volt seems to be stable. I'm still in the process of working on my form, and my OAT isn't micro. I've watched the volt wobble into a perfect glide on multiple occasions

Probably true. I am also of the opinion that very few us can differentiate between a little bit of hyzer, perfectly flat, or even a little bit on a hyzer when we're throwing. A few degrees here or there is tough to control. And a truly over stable disc will be more forgiving. That's why many like fast, over stable drivers. My FH looks great when I use my XXX. They make us all look better than we really are. Sometimes.

Let's quit squabbling about how it flies and start marvelling the wonder of Brainwave's dyes!

That is pretty. Is it an understable dye?

I'm swapping some texts with Steve a... Maybe we can get some video throwing his volt so people can watch the throws and gauge for themselves.

If it's a mirror, then yeah... no doubt it's pretty flippy!
