I'm somewhat interested in this disc, and I am a total MVP whore, but none of the descriptions on here are really leading mw to believe that its understable. So is it slightly understable? And just what in the hell do I need an u derstable Fairway for anyway? (And yes, I know its the same speed as the Volt, which is well beyond a Fairway driver in length...)

Anyways, I'm sure it will sell like gangbusters, but I'm just wondering what the point is? I mean, the Volt is a pretty wicked driver.

Turns out that Amp is one I am looking for but having Volt is really nice as I never really tried Eagle before. Really nice to throw "Eagle" lines lately, sneaking around the trees.

There is hole at my "home" course where long anny with little or no fade would work best and with Volt, it turns but eventually fade pretty strong thus out of comfy birdie range for me. So Amp should be perfect for that shot. Looks like Amp is going to be my workhorse driver. Faster worn TB is one I am looking forward. Other plus is less nose sensitivity. I think Amp would handle crosswind better. Cannot wait for Dec 7th!

I wonder the same thing.

I guess Amp would be "understable" to throwers like zj1002, Mike C, et al but I currently throwing up to around 300 so I believe it would be mostly stable for me. My RR is starting to get flipper (breaking in) so I hope Amp would allow me to throw easy long anny lines so I can replace my RR.

I don't think we're gonna get Roadrunner-level understable. For low power players, I am anticipating something more River or Valk-like. This is all speculation, though.

Yeah, that's actually not bad. Ive found that I have the power, but what I don't have ia consistency on my drives. Throwing the Vibrant soft fairway's has helped clean me up, and so has the Volt. I threw an awesome shot with my Volt today that is in my top five drives of all time. I guess that's why Id like to see the Amp has something that ia stable to understable. I don't have the skill level yet to throw a really understable disc the way that its meant to be thrown.

I'll probably pick one up either way. If it's easier to throw straight/anny than the Volt then I guess it could be useful. Hopefully they will do a overstable fairway/driver soon, that would be the tits!

Exactly. If the Amp is able to ride straighter, farther than the Volt, then it's going to be an even more useful disc for low power players like myself.

I personally would love a disc I can hyzer-flip from MVP. The Amp does not sound like I'll be able to hyzer-flip it...at least not until it's beat.

I think it's understable for everyone. MikeC has touched on it in other threads how he enjoys throwing a hyzer with his Axis. Its all about picking the right disc for the shot. He could probably take a trashed roller axis and make it hold a long anhyzer where it would roll for most. Once you learn to control nose angles the MVP discs shine.

MVP hit a home run with the Volt, but I am pretty confident the Amp will have a bigger following. I called the Volt the best new type of driver in years, and i still think it is, but the Amp would make the bag first. A 300ft power guy can make it hold an anny. If you can control a TB, river or jls you will like the Amp

MVP is trying to take over my bag...

Not a big fan of the axis so far, but the volt got me hooked. The Amp sounds like it's trying to get rid of my leopards...
