I'm sure even the mighty MVP insiders (sarcasm) would agree you can look at the profile of any disc and get a general idea of how it will fly.
Us mere mortals, who don't get our discs a whopping one week before the general public, would like to apologize to the non nerds who are so vastly superior to us

While I (somewhat) patiently wait for the Volt to hit the shelves I'm trying to come up with a list of things to test this disc on once I receive them. I've already got a couple teammates who are going to help me, one who has 550' distance backhand, and one that has about 430' forehand. Anything specific you guys would like us to do to these bad boys?

I think a good review covers three basic power levels, the 300', 375'-400', and 450' and beyond.
Then obviously how well does it hold or fight different lines from anny to hyzer.
Personally I'm mostly curious to see how it powers down. If its going to go head to head against the one disc to rule them all pd then it has to fit fairway and distance slots.
Oh and I'm sure we would all love to hear how the new plastic feels.

Thanks for the sincere reply. Some people just can't handle not being stupid...

This brought something else to mind, any discs you guys want to see this compared to, obviously going to do the PD, perhaps a new SL. Any others?

Right now 77 degrees in NC Heat index 79
Right now 84 degrees in Houston Heat index 91

I want to know how it is at cut rollers, spike hyzers, tomahawks and putting from 30' to 100'. Oh, and film it. Try to keep the video short, I don't have the best attention span.

I'm not sure what part of NC you used... Wilmington is 81/85 with 88% humidity.

tomorrow 96/107
