This thread shows everything you need to know about DGCR. I'm going to save this thread for examples when introducing a friend to this site. Thanks.

Seems like this point has been made elsewhere, but aside from the fact that MVP isn't sponsoring anyone, they're also relatively new. Most pro players have been playing longer than MVP has been around. Not being a pro, or having played very long, I can only assume that most higher level players are pretty comfortable with their putters, and wouldn't likely make a switch to a new manufacturer, aside from sponsorship reasons.

So, the reason top players aren't putting with them isn't necessarily that there's something wrong with the discs, it's probably more of an "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" deal.

You know youre biased when your argument against MVP, a company started by a couple of young guys with no affiliation to professional disc golf, is that a company like Prodigy or Legacy is younger and has more top pros; Which are literally companies started by top pros.

Yeah isnt that amazing, companies started by professional disc golfers have sponsored players!

I am an AM1 player that uses them. I'll leave the "solid" and "successfully" parts up for debate though.

I do believe anyone can be successful with any putter if they are comfortable with it. For an extreme example, I knew of a guy at Collegiate Nationals two years ago that putted with an upside down driver and did well with it.


My son was there that year, he talked about how this guy putted like that. Crazy.........

Posts of this logical nature usually get buried in threads like this.

MVP discs SUCK, because no sponsored pros throw them. This is common DGCR knowledge.

When I'm a pro in 2015 I'll be throwing MVP putters.

That help?

I think the better argument is that anyone who putts well with an MVP disc would be even better if they used something else
