Will probably do this...want to feel em' up too...not to mention check PLH against Volts and Amps to make sure I'm not getting a 'freak' one.

String stays on top of the snow even if disc dives in.
Seems easy enough, too bad they close the course in the winter for cross-country skiing. Reopens when the snows melt in April-May.

I find mine to be extremely similar to the volt. From this thread that's what I'm gathering is the norm. Wonder if MVP will come out with a true 0 HSS driver at some point... That would be awesome.

I don't know, but I'm really hoping for like a 9/3/0/4 type disc. I think this is true for just about everyone who throws MVP stuff on here.

MVP, the people have spoken.

These three fairway drivers are to fill a fair amount of ckntrol drives. I'm sure when they have distance drivers done then they will go back and fill in all the gaps (firebird-esque disc, etc.) You can't rush perfection.

I'm going to assume that it'd be easier to make a FB-esque disc than a DD.

I understand that. And I don't want them to. Just anything with true 0 HSS would be awesome from them. That's all.

Not that there's anything wrong if that is in fact the case...wasn't that the point of these discs?

Thank you

I'm taking this viewpoint:

These three discs operate as 1 disc in 3 different states of wear. The Shock is fresh, the Volt is worn, and the Amp is beat.

I think from watching Mike's videos, along with the Disc Nation video, this is fairly obvious.
