Looks like the stamp says Fairway Driver, yes?

Yes, it's classified as a Fairway Driver. There was a little back and forth between Fairway/Distance, and initially the site used Distance, but shortly before the release announcement they had me update the site to reflect Fairway.

I like this choice because the Volt follows an incremental speed from the Mids, and this establishes a Fairway family of molds that can be distinguished from a Distance class. Notice how silly Discraft's driver classes are named... I'm perfectly happy to set the foundation at Fairway.

At the course right now. Can't tell if it's because it's only 45 and windy, or if it's the disc, but Holy turn.

I hope that the expansion of thier line up fits in my bag like the axis and vector.
I know how you feel. I just dont see much MVP out here. People see me tossig an Ion off top of the world and always ask what was that disc.

MVP Volt - Photos, Videos and Impressions

Sorry for yet another volt thread but I wanted one full of factual information rather than pages of speculation to sift through.

Volts.



Microbead notch sorta thing.



2cm wing or speed 9 roughly.



Volt vs SOLF 1.1

Regarding the flight of the disc, here are my thoughts after my first two backhand and forehand throws:

Throws were performed on wet grass, in cold weather, with 15-20 mph crosswinds, with no warm up, these being my first throws of the day and first ever with the Volt.

Long with high glide. Slight high speed turn with a reliable, forward penetrating fade. This disc really pushes forward through the fade more than most drivers. My very first backhand throws went in the 420-435' range. Forehand throws were about 375' which is solid D for my fh.

Longer Axis more than a longer vector. 15-20mph headwinds will cause highspeed turn, but it is still controllable given hyzer. So far I would not call it flippy. It reminds me of a broken in QOLF with a more forward penetrating fade, or longer eagle X for those unfamiliar with Millennium.

I filmed four backhand throws and four forehand throws, my very first throws with the disc in the unfavorable conditions I mentioned. I plan to go throw a front 10 round at my home course, Arboretum next, and film it. Stay tuned.
