I'm waiting for the Paul would win more if he only threw MVP forehand discussion to restart.

Let's see if I can make everyone annoyed. Inconsistencies across batches and between plastics and even dyes means pretty much that any given manufacture can put out almost any kind of disc, if they have a fairly wide range of products. The discs Paul uses are lovingly selected and don't fly a whole lot like disks of a similar name. This is why The pros trade and gift discs. One finds a woohoo discs and shares the love.

The notion that InnoCraft Is better than Latbram is silly. You'd never get to the bottom of such an arguement. I will note an exception. It may be possible that either MVP or Vibram is more consistent, due to their unique products, overmold and rubbers. I say this cause I've not used enough of either to judge.

Zero chance with all he’s gotten from Discraft and he has a lot of loyalty with them

In my experience, there is some inconsistency in molding by both MVP and Vibram. The two companies appear to have less of a problem with inconsistency, though I've yet to have thrown enough discs from them to claim to have a solid grasp on the issue.

I like those two brands for reasons other than any supposedly greater consistency in molding. I've thrown a great many discs from other companies over the years, and inconsistency in any given mold never stopped me from throwing that model--I just bought another if a new one didn't fly right.

And this is thread drift...we now return you to your normal thread topic....

As mvp's production has gone up, their consistency has dropped some. Their higher speed discs also seem to be more inconsistent than the lower speed classes but I think that is true for most discs.

Yep. I've got three Waves that are not consistent at all. Not complaining, just observing and confirming...

He just signed with the Discraft elite team during 2017. I imagine that puts him under a contract for at least a couple years

Jerm is also very close with Uli, and when Jerm left Prodigy, Uli didn't.

I would say there is less than a 10% chance Austin leaves Discraft.
