If the shock flies at higher power like the volt does on smoother shots I will be happy.

This. I've got 2 ions, and a newish Volt. Got an Axis on the way. I'm starting to "worry" that these wacky two-piece frisbees are going to knock my old timey jalopy one-piece discs out of my bag.

The one thing I wonder about...since the MVP stuff spins/glides/carries so much, how are they going to come up with stuff like, say, a Rhyno, or Firebird? A super OS meathook? I'm sure they'll think of something.

I believe that being more gyroscopic would make it more resistant to turn and hold its line for a longer period of time.

Just like the tire in this video, the gyroscopic effect causes the disc to fly on the same plane on which it was released.

Sick. I'm getting one. I love how my 175g Volt flies...it's like a beat Teebird for me...thrown flat or on a slight hyzer it will flip up and go right just a bit (depending on how it's released) and has a few more feet of distance for me than a Teebird. Plus I like how the shallower rim feels in my hand. Excited for this Shock to come out. I could see going to an all MVP fairway line-up now.

Who were you talking to? None of the people in the shop there know much about MVP. I get a few texts/emails a week answering MVP questions for them.

I'm going to agree that the Volt is more Eagle-esque. Hoping the Shock is going to be more PD/Longer TB.

Fair enough, and thanks...I'm not great on the actual physics involved.

^this is a good theory.
Since it is still frigid here in the interior AK, I have only been able to thing about disc golf the past few months.
I was thinking the other day if there was a perfect balance of mvp disc weight and desired flights.

I.E. its easier to throw a sharp curveball with a baseball than whiffle ball.

I asked Chad and Brad this when I interviewed them, and they talked about PLH being a key, but that a super OS gyro disc would have a heavy fade, but be more gradual and less likely to dump off. At least that's how I understood it.
