Bring the video Mike C. I definitely care for your awesome videos. Were you thinking of some field work comparing old amp, new amp and volts or something like that?

I was throwing my Amp on hole 9 at the River's Edge DGC at Burchfield Park near Lansing in Michigan last weekend and landed on the road of the parking lot. Started walking to my lie when a huge diesel pickup truck rounds a curve and intentionally goes out of his way to run over my Amp. Still flies the same!

Just picked one of these up in Neutron/167 (Black) over the weekend. In the hand it feels like a Valkyrie to me so I checked the PDGA measurements which are scarily similar to a Valk. My first open field throw with it I let it go at about 75% and it went laser straight about 330, I never saw it fade a bit. Second shot was a downhill hole that loses about 30 feet in elevation on a 330 foot hole. I overshot the basket by almost 100 feet and landed on the next tee, almost in the lake. I saw the guy at the next tee walking by the disc giving that "What the hell what that...." look. Again, laser straight with maybe 4 feet of fade.

I think we're going to be great friends - I'm wondering what Hyzer Flips are going to look like once I've got 100 throws on this beauty. I'm starting to wonder if I should have picked up a heavier one and also if I should get a Shock.

The Amp is an awesome disc. I've had many of those "What the heck was that?" responses when passing by bigger groups. It's a very workable disc, and hyzer flips are crazy predictable.

You should definitely do one

Dude, I love Michigan, but some of the hilljacks up there are too dumb for words. I'd have thumbered an expendable disc at his P.O.S truck and given him something to cry about.

On the other hand, maybe I need someone to do something similar to my Amp. It's taking forever to break in, and is frustrating the hell out of me. I probably should pull my Volt out of my bag, and concentrate on breaking in my Shock and Amp, but I really do like watching my Volt fly.


edit: Mike, I'll second the poster above me. I'd love to see your take on the Amp.

For those who missed this the first time. Disc Nation's video review of MVP's drivers:

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=381284091967816

You can view it even if you don't have FB.

Edit: I believe the Shocks they showcase are the First Runs. The Volt, and Amp are the current versions.

I have a FR Amp and they will break in and become understable. Lots of tree hits helps speed up the process!

or this for the short term
