Pretty sure he means a bag that you just grab and go, a small bag with only the essentials (you need to survive).

Exactly. Something you can keep in your car, office, wherever to just go grab a quick round and have some fun. With the addition of the Volt, Ive found that MVPs line ia ideal for this. I might have to trim my down even more and go with only one Volt in the B.O.B. if, for nothing else, to remain color coordinated. I have the Skulltrooper when everything else is blue.

I digress....

I think the Volt is a great driver for all levels. I haven't seen the inconsistency yet, but as I always say., maybe I just got lucky.

MVP is great for a bug out bag for sure. It was so liberating just carrying 4 discs on my last round. There's no picking and chosing what you're gonna throw. It seemed to make me shape lines more as well, instead of chosing a specific disc for each task, I made the disc do what I wanted.

Plus the bag is so much lighter too. Makes the round more enjoyable.

Yup the Volt has rounded out my bag enough that I can play just an MVP round. I can leave 3 discs in the service van and play any time there's a break in work. The Volt is great for short OH, I'm digging the flat powered up lines and the stable low speed shots <200ft.

You can find these are various courses. They've been around for years. Just a joke/superstition to make the disc go farther.

Not as neutral as a tl in my hands, very saint like however, my friend throws a saint and it was interchangeable in his hands without missing a beat.
