You're right.

Could someone explain the nose issues with the Amp? I have not seen any problems, but that might be due to my throwing style.

You would still need to cut identical pieces of test plastic though, even if you were to measure them using displacement.
Using water displacement you don't have to cut both discs, nor do you have to make any precise measurements of the dimensions of the pieces to calculate volume. You can measure the density of an entire Innova disc, an irregularly shaped piece of overmold, and a section of the core by submerging them in water and measuring the displacement. Record the volume of each, weigh them, then D=M/V. We'd expect the overmold to have the highest density, and the core to be the lowest, with Innova plastic falling somewhere in between.

My understanding is, the higher you can get the difference between the density of the core and the overmold, the more powerful the Gyro is. I'm still curious about how you quantify the actual effect of the Gyro versus the aerodynamics of the shape of the disc but I guess it doesn't really matter. Performance speaks for itself.

"GYRO Tech" is the marketable name for their design-feature emphasis on a core property of all flying discs.

All discs gyroscopic, GYRO Tech more gyroscopic.

Might finally throw an Amp this weekend!!

You haven't thrown one yet Zam? I'd have thought you'd be one of the first.

I'm sure he's been too busy/tired from the holiday shopping season.

I've worked 10-12hr days at the office steadily for the past 3 weeks. Every single weekday for the past 2 weeks I've been up working till 4am, starting back at 9am. ZJ wanted me to come throw yesterday at 5... didn't leave the office till 10. That work at home represents 3 separate DG companies: DN, MVP, & DGA. Weekends = sleep. I've absolutely been too tired to hit the field/course

Wow, you've been busy. You'll be rewarded by the Amp, which I'm sure you'll enjoy throwing as much as I did.

I didn't find the Amp to be very nose sensitive, but them maybe that's because I throw lots of Lat 64. I did see it was not great into a fairly stiff headwind. ZJ said as much when I was at DN throwing the testers. I have yet to throw my ideal weight Amps due to another shoulder issue and work, so I'll have to wait before I decide completely how it flies for me. From what I saw throwing the testers, it was a solid disc with a predictable flight. It was definitely not understable for me at my lack of power level that day. It was good and straight, though.

The dude works round the clock. He is pretty much always the last one at the office.

I think the last time I played with him was a year ago when we set up a night golf course outside the warehouse
