Maybe because we have a brain and some ability...That's the most pompous post I've read today. NOBODY here is measuring speed of discs with an instrument. How do I know a Boss is faster than an Ape and a Groove despite the same number from Innova? Did I just "guess"? Do we all just "guess" that the Buzzz is faster than the Roc? If you haven't even thrown the discs then you are just suggesting that we are all full of it just to be an ass, which I take offense to.

I think you can handle a few grams heavier...

That they would, and I'm sure we'll see them soon enough.

We've all come to the conclusion of the Vectors being faster, and superior glide. Pretty sure we aren't 'guessing' we're giving our opinion.

Having talked with Blake and Dan Beto, who do all the testing and throwing and rating for GGGT, there is definitely a difference in performance when the temps drop below 50*. I was also referring to our competitive season, which there are only a few tourneys left, none of which I'm playing. Ofc we play all winter long, but it's not the same. You seem to call me out over everything out of the blue, please stop it.

I can throw heavier discs and I do when it is windy. I just don't feel the reason to replace what works for me. Get over it.

I never said it.... I was correcting someone else for not understanding a different post

I have thrown both the N and P Ions and didn't notice any difference in speed except for when I threw one faster. I was only commenting on what I read in the reviews by the testers.

I have a question for those of you who preordered from community discs.

When you preorder the Volt do you pick what color you want or is it just whatever they send you?

He asks what you want. He said if he can't give you exactly that he will email before shipping

I'm a tester, and I stated in 4 or 5 different posts that they were faster and they are...I'm not sure where I seemed like I was guessing. If you haven't noticed, go throw them so more. Throw them in some different wind direction/speeds at a greater range of power and distances. Compared how long they can fly low and at what point they start dropping and hitting the ground. Then you will see that they are faster. I see it in my Ions, Anodes, Axis, and Vectors vs. their Proton brethren.

Justin will email you to let you know what he has in response to your preferences (given at order). He'll work really hard to make sure he can meet your expectations. If he can't do it exactly he will do his best to get you what you want.

Put it this way--you'll know exactly what you're getting from Justin.
