Short little arms made me laugh! Sorry if that is rude!! The volt is definitely a great disc and I could confidentially play most courses round these parts with the volt as my only driver. The anode was the other one that blew my mind the first round I shot with it. They are doing things well!!

Not rude when its true! I'm 5 foot 9, but seriously my arms are short. Good for weightlifting, not so much fro launching discs a quarter mile. That's another great thing about the Volt: it doesn't require as much arm speed as other Fairway drivers. Rather, its all about the spin. That's what makes MVP discs sneaky long, I think. That Gyro tech just makes them cut through the air. You can always tell an MVP disc when its in flight.

For you Eagle throwers, is it pretty much a given that the Volt spanks the Eagle in a pure distance capacity?

I threw eagles for a while, and I feel that the Volt definitely has more distance potential.

Easier distance too. Volt is sneaky long.

Volt replaced my eagles quickly..threw them for years.

The volt is just as good if not better in ever aspect.

I like that it was easy to transition from my eagles i was currently throwing, and the volt provided a slightly larger range of flexibility for new types of shots while also hitting everything my Eagles could do

sweet disc the volt.

Reviving for a Question

I just got a Volt about a week ago, only been able to toss it a few times. My take on it is, it's got a Tbird heart and a Stalker soul.

My question is about weights. Mine is a "lime" (looks like lemon custard to me) @ 176g. I read early on in the thread one of the testers posing the theory that with the MVP overmold design, that the heavier ones might actually have more hs turn than the say 170 range, since they're designed to be spin-dependent more than mph dependent.

Anybody confirm this? I like the one I have, and feel like as my game gets better and better, I'll likely need fewer and fewer drivers in the bag besides this one.

But, if one were to think about adding a lighter one, what would one expect. Something different than lighter wieghts usually mean with other manufs??

Thanks in advance for any thoughts....

^i find my lighter volt to have less turn and more fade. i have a 175 and a 169, the 169 definitely seems more stable. dome is identical and the 169 is orange the 175 is hot pink. doubt color matters.
