Any chance you could elaborate on this idea a little bit? Thinking about trading in my early shock since I also have a volt

^i believe he thinks people will want older shocks. Early shocks will turn as much as a volt, but with an earlier and harder fade. So it's still a different offering then their current line up.

It's a different disc really. The FR shocks have a very useful and unique flight

I would stock up on them honestly

I'd agree with this. The FR shocks don't have a bad flight at all, just not super stable.

The new Shocks are fun to throw though, can really handle some power.

Nowhere yet, nobody has given any word as to when any vendors will get their hands on these. Only the testers have them so far. I'm guessing community discs will be the first to get them in since they are almost out of the first runs right now, places like DGC still have 50+ of the old ones in stock so unless MVP replaces them at the vendor level I wouldn't buy one from DGC until Wade announces that he has the new ones or change the flight numbers to reflect the flight of the new ones.

I wonder if MVP could have the retailers mark the old ones in some way. put an o in the rim or something? just thinking out loud.

You will know if you have an old or new one.

The old ones have slightly higher PLH than volts and the New ones have MUCH higher plh, just compare to a volt you you will know right away.
