Let's keep the insults down to a minimum and wait until we have the freakin' disc in our hands before we judge how it flies.

I laugh. A bunch of disc golfers discussing aerodynamics, gyro technology, wind currents, force and all things physics and we don't agree? Shocking. Let's try to solve worldwide hunger later.

If you dont agree thats alright Its just my theory

Considering they havnt released anyhting overstable with high speed like a XXX neither one of us can know for sure.

its illogical to say im wrong at this point. You have no tangible evidence or research to prove my theory wrong.
First of all, I am no kid. Second, if you throw with a lot of arm speed into a headwind, you will need a very over-stable disc, gyro tech or not. Especially, if I want to finish left.

Considering the inability of even our world's greatest minds to come up with a solution to this...I'd say we've got just as good a chance!

I have actually. I have some pretty HSS/LSS Volts and Vectors that I would have no problem throwing in that wind.

I'd say the greatest minds never get involved in the conversation. Don't confuse world leaders with great minds. Those are two totally different things.

Back on track now...

My Eclipse Ion tuns 9 degrees when throw 217' into 35 degree crosswind. WTF!??

By plexs logic, other companies make OS discs because they dont have gyro tech.

Not that, theyre sometimes necessary for a specific performance in flight.

Ok

Uh oh, JR speak

I think its funny people think that because a disc has a little more weight in the edge than other discs out there that it can ONLY fly straight!

The GYRO tech doesn't make it a whole lot more gyroscopic than any other disc out there.. its a minor effect that makes turn/fade transition slightly smoother and slower for MVP discs compared to others.

I'm done debating the issue.. let MVP speak for themselves when they get around to releasing their overstable discs.
