I can see doing that in high winds when it's often much more effective than using a traditional putter. To do it all the time though?

All I want to say is that junior high is the same thing as middle school.


Also I've never seen a top pro putt with MVP. I'm sure they could. I'm sure they could also bomb them off the tee. Someday a touring pro will throw MVP and everyone can get their validation.

1. It doesn't really matter what pros use because they're either getting paid to use the discs they do, or want to get paid by companies that sponsor.

2. It's true that most seasoned players picked their putters before MVP even existed. Most really good players aren't trying every new disc that comes on the market.

3. The argument that Prodigy players weren't throwing MVP isn't a good one. Remember, they're wiping stamps and even hot stamping other discs with Prodigy logos. You can't do that with MVP discs; they're too recognizable.

4. MVP discs catch chains and bounce off poles just as well as anything else. I've seen many Wizards bounce off the pole, but there's no reason to blame the disc for that. You threw it too hard and high if you're bouncing off of the pole.

Prediction: this post will be buried under a mountain of childishness.

I throw MPV putters off the tee and as my putters. I've not experienced any extra bounce-outs or strange behavior from them. What I do notice is that I can bomb them almost as far as my Rocs.

Could I probably throw just as far with Wizards or KC Aviars? Probably. But my personal preference is the Ion.

I switched from Wizards because I wanted a premium plastic putter for driving, and wanted to use the same disc for putting too. When I first got them, I did not like the Ion, and shelved it in favor of the Wizard. After some field work head to head battles between the two molds, the Ion won. I slowly started putting with it, and now I don't want to putt with anything other than my N Ion.

When I try to putt with Wizards now, they feel strange and it puts me off my game. I still kept my old Wizards though, just in case I want to throw them again, but really it's just for old time's sake.

The ****ty thing is, trying to compare these discs to champion or star plastic.

They're simply not. I would put their quality on par with Prodigy's plastic, which I love.


Seems to be a lot of bandwagon hate going on around here from people who feel threatened by new companies showing up and feeling like maybe they're missing out on something. But they're afraid to switch over. So they hate.

Yes it is strange, isn't it? The manufacturing side of disc golf is exploding, with better plastic and a huge variety of great molds, and internet disc golfers are acting like they're battling it out for supremacy in the Twilight universe.

With all these great new discs coming from new companies like MVP, Prodigy, Westside, and DD, I don't see what there is to get upset about. And the new companies are pushing the old: Jolly Launcher is awesome, and a lot of people like the Atlas it seems, and I really have to think those things are Innova's response to some of the new stuff happening in the market. As consumers, there's nothing but a net gain here for us.

Of course there's something about psychology sometimes that makes people want to face off against each other, and those people tend to spend a lot more energy whining or trolling on the internet while I'm out on the course. But in reality, this is a great time to be building a disc golf bag and it's only getting better.

Oh wait, trolls need to keep trolling using biased information, ignorant statements, and rediculous hypotheticals.
