If this shot becomes more serviceable, I'll try using it off tee, and for approaches too.
FWIW I cant throw OH's for any real distance nor do I even care to. I will use them downhill in tight wooded courses without any real line to the basket but mostly this shot is an approach so putters are great as they don't do much in the air or on the ground. If you watch OH dominate players you can see they use the different finishes of stability/speeds. Its crazy to see how much skip (Brian shweberger--SP?!) can get off those shots.

The Resistor is pretty good for me. The Shock and Volt didn't click with me, and I'm still up in the air about the Servo. To be honest, I prefer a Champ Teebird to just about everything for a reliable thumber, but my Resistor is the closet thing MVP offers. The main difference is that the Resistor moves further left during the barrel roll, and finishes further right and about 10 feet longer than my Teebird. The Teebird is great for ~200' controlled shots and I can get more distance if I am willing to sacrifice control.

But they're not all resistor flat and that's what I was asking.
I have experience with a few MVP and will say I've never seen a domey one.

Yes they are-- the shoulders are different height but no such thing as domey MVP drivers. You can literally pop the top on bosses etc when its domey vs flat. Never heard of a pop-top or domey MVP driver. Shoulder height is not the same as dome.

I seem to remember my volt(and the shock I had for a minute) having a slight rise. Where my resistors are board flat and slightly concave in the middle.

yes b/c the OM shoulder on resistor is even with the flight plate thus its FAF. the actual flight plates do not "dome" up though. The resistors PLH is just stupid high. really not anymore "flat" than a puddle top ION just like an ION isn't more domey than resistor hell they have negative dome lol.

... until I can get it in base plastic. THEN put me down for 20 max-weight blackouts.

These interests of yours are in capable, relentless hands.
Why the envy core instead of an anode? I feel the anode is almost there from the ones I have handled. Is the envy shallower?

And I assume you are talking 20 max weight black-out anodes? If so than put me down for some as well.

The Envy core vs Anode/Ion -- because I prefer a shallow feel. The Envy is shallower than Anode. Proto Magics are also more shallow/shorter overall than the production Magic. I don't like production Magics at all... it feels tall and clunky, whereas the Protos are compact.

Hey Geo, here's a pic of a black-dyed Proton Soft Ion with the stamp left on. They are very glassy looking when using a fresh, new one. Mine were originally the light pink shade they offer (my least fav) and the cool thing is, when you hold them up to a really bright light source (like the sun) it comes through as a super dark cherry red. I call it "demon filter"...just sounds cool, I guess... lol

Edit: Going to order a white rimmed proton envy tonight to see if the rim will dye on one of those. If not, should still look kinda cool anyways. And, if it doesn't, it'll be a nice test disc at the very least.
