volts or teebird

First of all, I could be dead wrong, but I could have sworn that I saw somewhere that the Volt was supposed to be a 9 speed... something like a 9/5/-1/1... maybe Im pulling that out of nowhere. Discgolfcenter has it a 7/5/0/2. I know its still very early to get a majority verdict on this, but does anyone think the volt is going to be a marked up Teebird or is there any reason to consider pulling the trigger if I already have a few TBs?

I just got a volt in today and I love teebirds. Haven't thrown the volt yet, but just by initial inspection of the disc, it is pancake flat. Like ce firebird flat. That should make a pretty big difference. Just saying.

I haven't thrown a Volt, so take that for what it's worth. But by every indication on here the Volt is much more versatile out of the box than a Teebird, so you should be OK to pick one up. If you don't like it, it will be easy to sell on the Marketplace.

Volt is a 9 speed, DGC has it labeled wrong. It can power down and be thrown like a teebird well though.

Thats what I thought!! Thanks bl1nk. Ill probably wait until I can try one from my buddys shop before buying one, but it sounds like its (supposed to be) a nice utility disc that could be in the bag for many different roles. I wouldnt replace any of my teebirds with one, but its make more appearances than a TB on the windier days. Everything I read between users and the marketing, makes me feel that it might be a valkyteebird!

The Volt would be compliment a stable Champ/Star Teebird really well. I'd call the TB speed 8 and the Volt speed 9, so there's not a huge difference in speed.
