Recently my thunderbird took a bad hit and 'limped' the next couple holes. I'm frugal and with MVP costing a bit more, if it holds its flight characteristics, I could actually come out ahead.
Agreed with jakebake91. I put the initial 2x or more cost into MVP putters over baseline putters and use them for all putts, approaches FH/BH, and BH drives...basically they get thrown 50-100x more than any other disc in my bag while hitting lots of metal, and only after like 5 years am I cycling them out because they are noticeably turning on drives. I bet I'd have seen half a season out of baseline putters if used the same way and I wanted to be able to drive them with power and hold straight.

If you get a mold you like, you'll definitely come out ahead because of the durability. Of course freak accident gouges can happen to any disc but that is completely random/unlucky.

Edit: Volt is likely a good Thundy comparison I think? Little different characteristics but it should use the same slot in the bag. I'm a Thunderbird thrower and only thrown a Volt a couple of times, so I'm sure others have better comparisons for you if the Thundy is what you'd be replacing.
