It's also a very expensive time.

I was wondering the same thing. I'm not part of they. I tried the whole MVP thing...the mids and fairways were okay. I thought the putters were horrible. I highly doubt not having time to try new things is the reason pros aren't throwing MVP. If MVP was truly better than the rest, don't you think top pros would want to be all over that?

Common sense isn't viewed highly here on DGCR

No joke. There are a lot of people on here who worship Mike C (no offense Mike, you're pretty darn good), but even he has started to phase non MVP discs into his bag because MVP is limited to what they can do stability-wise.

I don't remember anyone necessarily "hating" (what a stupid term) on MVP the company. I have heard many people expressing their dislike of their rabid fans, myself included. The incessant professing of how great MVP is in nearly every thread, related to MVP or not, is nauseating. For instance, just recently I recall a Teebird vs. Eagle thread, where the OP was only asking about the two discs, and on the first page or two I see a couple of these idiots proclaim "The Volt rules". Then you look in an MVP thread where they are discussing a new release and they are all posting about getting boners over their newest piece of plastic.......literally. Now, keep in mind not all of their fans are like this. It's just a select few, but they are the most noticeable and vocal. It's obnoxious.

To me MVP reminds me a lot of those late night golf infromercials....

You know people use it and buy that crap. Yet, do you see a chipper on the PGA Tour?

Yeah, but MVP does make some legit discs. However, I don't ever want to buy them just based on the fans behavior on DGCR.
