I throw Voodoos and Anodes which fly pretty much identical. The Anodes "gyro-tech" seems to make it hold a line for a longer period during the flight. It seems to do absolutely zilch for it's wind fighting ability. It flips exactly like my Voodoos. Maybe it is holding the flip better? lol

Its likely a smoother transition into the flip, and thats why, its science

The shock flips later in flight than the Volt

The volt flips up and either forward or right

The shock flips up, tracks right, then fades back harder. It has more movement than the volt on a big rip

Lol, this I why I like my 1st run ions. They flip but they do it so smooth.
Although like all MVP discs I think it has more to do with aerodynamics than weighted rim magic.

I have done that exact shot with an Anode, Ion, Axis, Vector and Volt. Throwing a disc at 80% power with a lot of spin and hyzer, plus giving it some height, you can do a lot of things most golfers wouldn't expect neutral discs to do.

I have three answers for that.

You are more experienced withthe molds also you seem pretty talented.

You may have missed the part abou 20mph hw. I doubt your anode got there in a hw, by adding more height.

Also, youre right. Neutral discs are under rated and very versatile, and you and anyone else could likely find a way to manipulate the disc and get it there some % of the time. But would you be that confident? I know you dont play competetively really, but i would not reach for a neutral disc in that spot when it counts. I have many more user friendly and reliable options.

The Anode is not over-stable and its a putter with a lot of glide..and you expect it to have "wind fighting ability"?

lol uh.. anyways.

This is a thread about the Shock, sorry I contributed to letting the topic get out of hand.

SO, i hear the Shock is a HSS 0 and LSS 1

Sounds to me like a faster version of the AXIS
