It's winter. My reviews of discs will be completely different, even with the same disc, than in warmer temperatures.

Maybe, there should be a "Useful Post" button by each post that gives a member karma for each useful post they make.

For example, i would get no karma for this worthless post.

I can say the shock has been throwing a bit more stable on the course

Using it mainly for hyzers rather than the flips I saw on the range

What weight are you throwing? Bout to order a couple and didn't know what weight I should get.... Got a 170 amp and its really stable, with a light fade at the end. Should I get max weight to have the shock more overstable? Or should I get light weight to try to get a little more distance? One is going on the wall (Zam Skullboy) so the other will be a course disc.

Forgive me if I'm wrong but I don't remember you writing much or anything about the Volt or Amp. Did I miss your reviews?

The Amp was when it was <30* temps and the Volt was mid/low 40s when I got them. Discs don't fly normal in <50* temps as they do above. GGGT doesn't test any discs till it's consistently >60* too. You just can't get the same flight out of them, and I feel like any of my findings will be much different then ZJ/ZAM/Discspeed who are all in the south, thus making for inconsistent analyses of the disc. So forgive me if I'm trying to make it so that people can get a better understanding of the disc.

Hmm. Not sure if that's how I view it but I hear what your saying.

I tend to think climactic factors are a bit overvalued in general and even if you do think they are that big of a deal why not test in a variety of conditions? I understand not wanting to play in the snow but 40's and 50's?
