I'm certain that the rim of the Volt is wider, but not by a ton. Volt cuts through the air better, and that's why I use it in the "control driver" slot. Not quite long enough to be a true distance driver, but significantly longer than a fairway driver i.e. Eagle, Teebird, Prodigy F-Series et al.

yea I also consider the volt a bit longer than your average fairway driver. The servo maybe more what he is looking for? haven't thrown one of those yet so not sure how OS it is. I would think the resistor is more OS than what he is looking for.

The f2 I believe is a speed 7. So neutron volt would be longer and slightly less stable than f2?

depends on what volt you get. I would say somewhere in the 8.5 speed range maybe 9. The eclipse proton are noticeably more OS than the neutron. I haven't thrown the regular proton but I would think there are also more OS. The servo/crave class is alittle slower, maybe 7-7.5 speed. Ive only test thrown a f2 a couple times but it seemed like it would compare stability wise to an eclipse volt. There might be some variance due to weight or throwing style.

Actually Aim, if they cool the discs quickly, it will cause them to contract more creating more dome. What they have probably figured out is just the right amount of cooling time while in the mold so that the part does not have to cool as much once exposed to the air.

Mine are NOT line holders. They both fight out of annys fairly aggressively (see the lite blue one in photo.) The Amp I bag now is much closer to the older Volts I have than the new Volts are...but, of course, heaven forbid you should have to quit DG...
OK, so I need to do a bit of a redaction.

I have had limited chances to throw for like 4 months. I've spent the last week or so getting some field work in. Last night I not only refound my form, I had a bit of an aha moment with my pull through the hit. It was a plateau-jump type realization.

Anyways, several discs have changed a good bit in character overnight, and the newer Volt is one of them. My E still has mad HSS, I don't really get turn out of it, but it's holding lines through about 85% of it's flight, with a predictable/moderate fade.

So, sorry Volt for bad-mouthing you!

And dude, what I can get the Servo to do now....meeeYowww.

MmmHmm. Luckily the crave can pretty much fill the same slot too being that volt was thrashed up and seasoned nice so it makes for no need to carry 3-4 volts at different stages of wear.
