Proton and Neutron fly differently for me. I have different weights for my Proton and Eclipse and they fly the same.

I finally got to throw my Volt (and Tangent) some this past weekend.

I think the Volt is a really good compliment to my beat-in GL Saint, which is fairly understable at this point. Two of my best 3 shots of the day were with the Volt, which is pretty great considering it's a new disc to me.

Overall, I was throwing pretty terribly when I last played, as I was really struggling with my release point. Right when I was getting frustrated, I let loose a perfect drive on a very slight anhyzer (or the disc may have turned over just so upon release). The Volt held it for a couple hundred feet before leveling off and ultimately fading out around 350'. I parked it right beside the basket for birdie. I went from being frustrated to being very happy in a few seconds because that's really what I play for... those great shots where everything feels right and the disc flies just the way you want it to.

Sub 170 g volt

Yesterday I found an anomaly at my LDS. A pink neutron volt scaled at 167.9. It flies light a beat volt right out of the box and is a sick hyzer flip disc.... I feel lucky to find it...

Or am an idiot and now they make them lighter?

I have a Volt that I bought a month or 2 after they were released, and it scales at 166g

Looking at all of the online retailers I can only find 170 and higher. Is it hard to find under 170 or are they just popular?

Volts, Amps, & Shocks don't exist in that weight anymore. A while back MVP made a change to their process which yields a higher quality and lower defect rate. The side effect was a higher minimum weight. They did update the weight ranges on their site.

I am NOT trying to self promote but a good example is that I just ordered 10 or 12 Volts at the absolute min weights MVP had in stock. They arrived today. All were 171 & 1 was 170g.

Well, that sucks. My favorite disc in my bag is a 167 hot pink Volt. But then again MVP discs seem to throw very similar in low or high weights.

I've got a 174 Proton that's easier to throw and goes farther than a 170 Proton Eclipse I have.
