Just to clarify, I put "Testers" in quotes to distinguish the actual testers (Mikes + UPS) from myself and ZJ. I get info and plastic at a different time for a different purpose than the testers, that's all. They test for the forum, IMO.

Also, don't be surprised if the Shock is what nobody was waiting for. It's a great pairing between Shock/Volt, but it's not the stark contrast that you'd imagine based on other brands' Battleship approach to the flight chart grid.

They're both tight control drivers; Volt favors the Turn phase, Shock dampens its Turn and favors the Fade. It's two styles of stable control driver -- and I use the term stable correctly here. These are made for the most common course-shredding lines, not the utility stuff like meathooks or meatrolls.
