I love MVP plastic too (only one non MVP disc in my bag ATM) but the unbridled butt kissing you two do is a bit much. Not even discspeed takes it that far and he is a tester. Not looking to start a flame war or anything here and I'll never mention it again. Just saying, maybe you want to tone it back a little.

What constitutes as too much? Why rain on peoples parades, it's just an opinion. There are others just like these guys, but with other companies, you don't see people killing their buzzz.

I finally got to throw one of my FR Discnation Amps on Saturday. It flips like crazy! One of the most understable drivers I have ever thrown. Max weight, light tailwind, 30 degree hyzer and still turning over without any fade.

I can't really think of something I would compare it to, maybe 8, 4, -3, 1 in Innova numbers. This is based on only a few field throws so don't take it too seriously, but I was very surprised by the flight.

I'll carry one for a while and throw it on some crazy lines to see if it will show me something I couldn't do with any other disc, but I can't imagine what that would be.
A few more throws with my Amps (varying from 169-175g in 5 different colors), and I can still say that the above is true for me. FWIW, I have one GL River and it is not nearly as understable as any of these Amps. In fact, it is a lot like the one Volt I have been able to throw. For reference, I can get the Volt and River to about 400-420'. I haven't been able to measure an Amp throw yet, but I don't think they are any longer, just completely different flight. I guess if I could hit a distance hyzer-flip just right then they could bomb, but I have never been able to get those to work very well at all.

So i guess its confirmed that the first run of these is stable and the new ones are under-stable like they should be?

My first production runs seem to be HSS of -1 and LSS of 1
