I say go for it. It's a great mold in a great plastic.

For me, and I think I'm an outlier on this (because some guys say that in Plasma it's close to the early runs,) it's not THAT different from a newer N, for example. At least, stability-wise. Mine doesn't really turn at HS at all, it may drift some if I really lean into it. I'd say it flies more like a seasoned up newer run. It really kind of reminds me of an awesome Eclipse that I had nice and beat in, before I lost it to a watery grave at Trophy Lakes a while back. It has a much longer glide phase, especially at my powered down Ds, which puts it say right at 300, and muted fade.

So, as it gets more beat (mines in that 7-8ish/10 stage,) the Plasma might start showing some noticeable flip, I don't know, whereas these super flat/high PLH later runs in N never really do.

I just really love the feel of it in Plasma. It has just enough flex for me. Not as flexy as some of the runs of N that approach "soft." In fact, oddly maybe, I think this Plasma Volt is a bit stiffer than the other drivers I've more recently gotten in Plasma (Photon, Wave.) I don't know, maybe the narrower rim = a bit more density in the flight plate.

Anyway, any Volt person needs to try it in Plasma, IMO.
