What's the word on blue Volts in light weights? Thinking of snagging one if it'll perform like my Orange 169er.

I ordered a "168" from DGC yesterday. We'll see what it scales out to be.

My 170 blue is one of my most overstable Volts.

I love the PD and I prefer the Volt over the Saint...Of course I've only thrown one Saint, but it was a good one. My Volt is like a PD-L...It is what I wanted both the TD and then the FD to be.

I've carried PD, Volt, & Saint at the same time & didn't think there was much overlap. At about 350 power, the SPD is super straight with good fade, decent in the wind. The Volt has a little turn & fade, a tight s turn that ends up pretty straight, not as good in the wind as the PD. The Saint would be open hole D, it makes a much bigger s turn & usually has the most D of the 3

Finally got to get the volt out for a few more rounds. My big is scared, opto saint is out, teebird is out. My lighter orange one is taking shots from my leopards. The volt is a great neutral/stable driver. Holds a great hyzer line, annys will flex out if thrown high enough. Reached several holes with the volt today that I did not think it would hold the lines I was asking of it. Pretty much point and shoot. Easy to throw far. Really liking this thing a ton! Thanks MVP!

Mr Glass: Agreed. Volt is my work horse driver by far and already makes difference to my game. I bring 4 Volts with me in a round so I can practice driving/fairway shots 4 times (Need to work on the archer). For me, it replaced my FD's. Also replaced Saint, Teebird, Leopard and FD for some others.

Looking at your sig, I am going to be heading toward a similar setup: RR for US, Volt stable, PD for OS/wind and XXX for utility. Take out the Ion, and sub a Sinus and Pain for Zone/Vector, and it looks like mine.

I am going to take out Ion too because it is similar to Anode. Zone is easier to FH for me due to smaller diameter. I also plan to take out Sword cause I can throw Volt as far as Sword most of time. Sword would become more effective once I improve my driving form to get more distance.
