I've experienced a little bit of overlap, but I don't have the biggest arm. The Volt has a bit more lateral movement than the Amp, though, so I think they can coexist. I find the Volt a little easier to use, which is odd because the Amp is sipposed to be the easy one.

"Easier to use" doesn't really mean the same thing to all of us. The Amp is supposed to be more understable. Is your Amp less understable than your Volt? Or is the Volt a little more predictable for you because it's more stable/overstable, and thus "easier to use"?

The Volt feels more forgiving if I have a poor release on it, but that may be due to the more stable design, so I expect it to fly more stable regardless. Good point.

Also, I know how to spell "supposed." Stupid phone.

You're saying your Volt has more turn than your Amp, or what?

Only a little bit more turn, but a good deal more fade. For what it's worth, I still don't have the Amp dialed in all the way, so I'm hoping this changes.

i threw my new Volt saturday playing Evansville courses. it worked very well with tight low tunnel shots, open bombs and hyzers. didn't work too well for me on anhyzers but i blame the archer not the arrow. it will be going in the bag. Volt/River combo works for me very well.

Mine is stiff as a board, and I like it like that.

Thay is my thought right now too. But I also carry the uber-flippy Diamond for my turnovers. The Saint is still battling, but I think I am too weenie armed to use the Saint unless it is a headwind situation. But the Saint and Volt are almost interchangeable for me.

MVP Volt

Just picked one up last weekend. 170g
I'm impressed - very straight - slight fade and lands pretty flat for a nice skip.
I was surprised at the glide and the line it held - the grip and feel are superior.
Best distance about 320' - maybe a 25' skip - I think this will be a go-to disc for tight shots in the woods. Seems to run strong - I think it will be OK in moderate winds also.
