Nice profile pic Zam. The Shock looks like it has a nice fat nose that reminds me of the Banshee. I'm actually going to try this one out and cross my toes for longer Banshee.

No hints, no hype... name + info + date.

I do appreciate the Prodigy Hackerz Klub thread keeping eyes off the MVP site... I was all trololol editing the live site last night, and normally I'm on full anxiety mode while making heavy updates. Easy beans.

Sounds like this will be a slower escape. I'll be sticking with the escape then

That's the first disc that popped into my head when I saw it. Hoping you're right, but not necessarily expecting it.

[QUOTE=UnitedPuppySlayer;1793055]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.QUOTE]

I don't recall getting his name. Some younger guy, mid-20s(ish) w/ a 5 o'clock shadow. Sounds like pretty much all disc golfers! I'd agree they don't seem to know a ton. I did the side-by-side comparison myself though and pointed out that the PLH is higher on the Volt which is the difference...he kind of looked at me funny.

Well, if you keep the flight plate and all other things constant and just swap out the GYRO wing, you start producing discs with similar feel in the hand (important), but (more important), you can maximize economies of scale and produce a **** ton of cores all at once (assuming you're not using a JIT inventory system) and pop a wing & stamp on them whenever you need to fill demand for a certain driver, thus reducing switchover costs and ensuring a consistent product.

^^ pure speculation here, but can anyone confirm/deny this is the case at MVP?

I have 3 Volts, 2 red, and 1 pink. The reds are Teebird stable, the pink is more TL. I have 2 Amps, one white, one neon green, both throw exactly the same, like a longer Leopard. If the Shock is any where near Pred stable, I will be a very happy guy. All they'll need then is a Drone type mid and a Zone type putter!
