From the MVP thread.
Whew, looked like you were losing your mvp hard on for a minute. Sure am glad they acknowledged your existence and talked you off that ledge sir. That was close.

For all we know they made enough money on the current discs to retire in the Cayman Islands and will not be developing further discs... who knows they are so silent and don't even sponsor any pros to get their product name out there to build credibility in their products.

I'm beginning to lose interest in MVP and gaining interest in trying new drivers from companies like DD and Prodigy.. Which sucks for MVP because i don't switch discs in my tourney bag after the start of a season and whatever i throw is what i rep because i try everything and chose what works best. So they better give us something before another companies disc secures a spot.

I am the one of the very few MVP voices in my community and have led to probably 100's of sales by word of mouth.. especially for the AXIS and Ion. And who knows how many have been influenced on these forums.

MVP is a great company but they have recently failed to keep the interest of the community (in my opinion) by withholding news, updates, and overall communication with people who enjoy their products as much as i do.

People don't like being left in the dark for too long. We want to know whats going on!!

sorry for the rant.. i just had one of those moments

Thank you for your feedback, and we apologize for our absence. We have become even more busier with increased product developments and also still working around a school schedule. Nevertheless, we do still follow this official thread and will post any important clarifications.

We are generally always in continuous development for new products. However, the development of a new product requires several months of work.

As far as announcements or specific details go, we prefer to oversee our high quality standards throughout the full product development and production run before we release any information. We strive to set a new industry standard with the highest quality standards, and to abide by these standards requires a great deal of time. We do not like to keep everyone waiting for a new product, so we prefer to wait until a new product is ready to be launched before announcing it.

We have adopted this philosophy as a result of the launch of the Volt last year. We announced the Volt in the early production trials, but then when it came to production we were unsatisfied with the quality, so we worked to upgrade our facility to improve our standards. Consequently, there were delays with the launch of the Volt which lead to a lot of disappointment and people waiting. At the time, we ourselves did not even know when the Volt would be launched.

We work as hard as we can to stay in touch with everyone here on the forums and our Facebook page to keep everyone updated with the most accurate and up to date information.

Best Regards,
Brad Richardson
MVP Disc Sports

Well I never argued 'more stable' = overstable

Again, please try to focus here. The thread is about the Shock and not your resistance to new ideas and improvement in disc golf technology.

If you would like to debate with me further please send me a PM and we can discuss it there. Or over in the General MVP thread for example.

I'm interested in hearing about how the Shock is going to fly so lets focus discussion on that.

I expect MVP to keep up on releases and keep us informed. Nothing wrong with that.

Also, im glad they announced the next day after i made that post. Couldn't have been happier to hear about their next release.

Whats your point with all this? You seem extremely disgruntled

Try to relax and be more friendly, no one is trying to flame you or take down your opinion.

True, but hard to tell which direction and how strong.

Would love to see video that says "Here is 20-25 MPH headwind" while doing field work and empty the bag.

Would you say it flies like a Teebird? Or maybe a Wraith with less fade?

Sounds more like an Orc than a teebird.
Too bad.
