There are premium plastic lids out there, both made by Wham-o(china) and by Innova (hero and supersonic). There are also overmolded lids made by Aerobie, but they don't seem that gyroscopic. I imagine an MVP lid to have the whole rim(inside and out) as the overmold, and only a thin flightplate of proton.

What situation would one use lid on the course? The only time I see lids on course are Gregg Hosfield for putting and a local guy for FH putting. I have Zypher (sp?) 195g which is nice for throw and catch (nice to feel extra weight).

For catch and if it flew awesome enough maybe for longer frisbee-style runs at the basket. They would also hold a low power slight anny to the ground at short distances.

This plus:
-get out of trouble shots, especially if your movement is limited
-airbounces and stalls
-any approach you need to stick
-crazy lines around trees
-extreme downhill tunnel shots, especially shorter holes where a blowby would hurt.
-just plain fun

Having a lid in the bag has really livened up my rounds on courses where a lot of NAGS* are possible because you can make an aggressive run at the basket with a fair chance of going in and not get punished much on a blowby. It's just a lot more precise than a conventional putter or mid. I also think it would be a great disc for getting a lot of older school DGers into MVP because you can expose them to it by playing catch.

*Not A Golf Shot, those in-between a throw and a putt approaches where you just basically kill a stroke laying up for a gimmee putt.

Sounds sexy! I liked the Sonic for the grip and lid like qualities but they kept breaking on me so I gave them up. I didn't want to try a premium like the champ zephyr because champ has such poor grip. A premium MVP lid with a grippy rim would be the balls.

At one point it was a possibility that the MVP website would launch in early April, and I proposed launching with an April Fool's prank to announce the first driver -- an overmolded Epic.

Several years ago on DGR I photoshopped a Champ Epic in-hand pic and had another user disseminate it. The speculation (ON April Fool's Day) got to the point where someone asked Dave D if it was true.

I still think we're getting ahead of ourselves. I need to see/throw the Volt before I can say what I think MVP could do next.

But as Bro-D can attest I love a lid and can do nasty things with them. I say they need to make a flat top Polecat style disc. and yes they can do an overmold on a lid.

That is awesome lol. It's a silly idea for MVP, but at the same time, I do still feel that if the Epic wasn't made with the cheapest garbage plastic in existence, it might actually be a solid disc. When I pull out a fresh Epic, I'm been able to throw 500+ with a thumber, but once you hit a tree, it will never fly the same again, and will often have a nice gouge in the side. Would be interesting though, you should mock up a picture of what you think an MVP Epic would look like.
