If I had to guess based on your answer, it would be the pink?

White and pink are first run, blue is new run.

I don't know if it should be called a "fairway" driver, more like a "long-range". It is definitely fast. Easy 375' straight drives with big skips. Hit pole on A, chains on B, then cage on E with it this morning, trying it out for a round. Has potential for a good sidearm line shaper too.

Got some newer run Shocks yesterday and they are definitely more stable than the first run. Quite pleased with them. Time to put my PDs up for sale!

I feel like this is true with all of MVP drivers so far. They have the insane control of a fairway, but they are all sneaky long. They've kicked every other driver out of my bag--including my speed 10-11 distance drivers.

I can't wait to see what a speed-11 MVP driver does. Magic? Definite possibility.

Agreed. If I have a high ceiling to work with my Volts aren't that far behind my fresher Quasars. My beat Quasar outdistances them by a decent margin, but it's gotten pretty flippy and isn't as reliable. It's so fun ripping a Volt 100% power, 30' high and a pinch of hyzer and watching it sail past the 400' mark before it thinks about fading.

Anyone throw any lighter weight shocks vs the max weight? I'm curious if they have more turn/easier to put on a helix shot.

I came here to ask this same question. Just got a new run shock and it is pretty nice so far. Very stable. Just what I was looking for when they first came out. Would like to hear how the lighter ones fly(my drivers are typically 165ish).

I should have a 168g coming as a replacement from MVP in the next day or two. We can hook up some time and I can let you toss it around. I got a 173g while I was waiting on the replacement and, man, that thing is a meathook in my hands. Like, barely longer than my Trident but just as hard of a fade kinda meathook. I'm hoping the 168g is a whole lot less beefy or there's no way it's taking over my Teebird spot!

Yea, these new shocks are very stable for me also. Wind doesn't faze them one bit, i would feel confident throwing them in 20mph winds.

Need more time to break one in, mine flies like a predator.

in time its going to break into a great accurate hyzer placement fairway
