You know people use it and buy that crap. Yet, do you see a chipper on the PGA Tour?
Since most pros have been playing well before mvp even started, this is a bad analogy. Mvp is just fine, but it will never be the be all to end all of dg. And they at the time apparently have no aspirations of compiling a pro team.

The entire prodigy squad switched discs, as well as the beard, and they have done pretty well considering. If they all switched to mvp it'd be the same thing. Discs are discs, learn them and use them.

For me lately, MVP discs are like the Innova Wolf. As soon as I see somebody with one, I automatically assume they are a noob.

If I were to buy discs based on how a minority of fans of that manufacturer behave on an internet forum then I wouldn't be able to play disc golf at all.

That is a very valid point, to which I have no rebuttal.

It would seem though that the high level of douchiness from the relatively small number of MVP fans trumps that of other manufacturers though. I haven't seen any Westside, DD, Discraft, ABC, etc fans talking about getting a boner over a new release, or bowing sexually for their beloved frisbee maker. That is a new level of weird for DGCR.

So now MVP discs give you 380' of scary accuracy? Pros should be all over this.
