I'm really hoping that the new shocks beat in to that sweet teebird slot. I too was a huge teebird guy but I am finding that most shots I could do with the teebird I can reach with a powered down volt or shock.

As for miss, I was a roc fiend. That was until I realizes the vector is a flat top roc with a heartier fade and my domey neutron axis does a really nice DX roc impression. My mid game is really picking back up and my golf game has never been more consistent. I will also say that the MVP MIDS really stretch tee shots that I would have formerly threw a fairway.

Just for the heck of it I'm gonna bust your balls a little...

Super beefy mids are useless...Seriously, if you can't get by with an overstable Proton Vector and powering down Shocks (or throwing them smoothly with a touch of anny) then you need more practice instead of a super beefy mid anyway. I don't think we will really know what m1-m4 are going to fly like until Prodigy gets it together either.

Also, a true fairway driver? The Axis is so long and the drivers power down so well that there is seriously like a 10' gap at best between their mids/drivers for me. The drivers are a NEW kind of fairway that are faster yet don't glide a bunch and therefore are super easy to range and cut the wind way better.

I think once the improved Volts start hitting the shelves (consistent PLH, no flash) they will be much more appropriate for TB type shots.

Well, they improved their equipment to fix the Shocks, don't you think it's going to "fix" their other molds as well? As in getting them consistent and flying as intended much more than the early runs...This is a universally good thing.

Wow, they must not read their email as MVP informed all their distributors of the situation (i get the stock emails they send out).

Also, I see MVP's discs being more stable in the future and all the early "flippy" stuff is going to be like the early run Ions in terms of people seeking them out in the MP.

My current bag:

Trespass
Volt
Amp
Proton Vector
Proton Axis
Flying squirrel
Soft Anode (driving)
Medium VP
Neutron Ion (putting)

If Im playing a course where I think Ill need a super long turnover disc Ill throw in a nuke. I used to carry many more discs but now I prefer to learn to throw more shots with less discs so sticking to (mostly) MVP has been enjoyable for me. I havent tried a tangent yet but Im hoping to soon, either way Im not sure Ill keep carrying the flying squirrel as I will try to cover those shots with my anode, axis and forehanding a vector.

i dont even bag one but i would call the volt the ultimate control driver. it does its job and much more exceptionally well.
the new shock i and a friend have are pancake flat, cfr pd flat, and are sick discs.
