I throw Amps around 300'ish and they really holds the line very well with good snap. It even gets better with some seasoning.

Ok problem solved! It turned out to be the disc. I bought a new amp today just because I've heard a few references to first run white amps being more sable. First throw with my new amp was a beauty. That slow right moving turn was exactly what I was hoping for. Now I don't have to think about kicking amps out and rivers in......just need to get some new amps.

im going to try my new amp against my river one more time. The river is just too controllable on turnovers, hard to see replacing them.

Hit my second ace ever today with my black 173g amp here at Baugo Park, hole 3 (238 feet). Switched over to MVP plastic this season and I'm not looking back. Even hit the basket a few times lately with my Ion and Tangent.

I hope to do the same, its just hard to give up a disc that has served me well for so long.

River vs Amp.. It's tough. I seem to handle the Amp better but the understable slot seems to be the hardest to fill in my books.

I think it partly depends on what you want out of that slot. I've been throwing Underworlds there because my number one concern for my US driver is getting it to turn in all conditions (especially when lower power throws are necessary): Underworlds are easier to turn over than Rivers and Amps, and for my 300ish feet of power, it makes a difference.

Amp is a great disc though, no question. Holds lines like a champ, and pretty wind resistant for an US driver.

Sometimes I want a straight tunnel shot from that slot.. But I want the disc to generally fade out to the right. Slowly ease that way. THe River doesn't want to fly very much and the Amp is just.. Well I am not 100% sure.
