Solid assumption UPS. That's a good thing though, I can flatten discs easily...make them lighter...not so much.

I really want this thing to have a bit of turn.

They all have the same core, so the heavier ones should be slightly more gyroscopic. However, 5 grams spread over the entire rim is not even close to making a noticeable difference.

We threw a few random holes at the same course. I'll probably have something posted tonight. Turned out a little calmer, and being more familiar with the disc helped.

Yeah, I was thinking it had kind of a beefy TL, JLS, Gazelle looking kind of flight to it. It looks interesting.

How does it hold an anny line? It looks like it would hold a nice long anny for slightly right tracking holes.

Edit: That Squarepusher was a good choice.

Don't they all have the same outer rim too? So why do they weigh different?

It does a good right turning shot. Thrown with 350-375' of power and the tiniest bit of anny it will glide pretty straight then hold a right turn to the ground, but not such a hard turn that it wants to roll. It's very controllable for this line and is a shot I see myself using this disc for frequently. Hole 7 at Arboretum will be a perfect shot for the Volt.

Also watching my lower powered friend toss some Volts, it had a longer teebird look to it. Thought it would fly a bit more neutral but I think he throws a tad nose up.

So no turn to it, then? I was expecting it to be a bit more Eagleish.

Really anxious to hear how it flys for 300-350ft of power

**edit
Guess I should refresh before posting

Actually no. The rim is where the weight difference comes from.
