Geez thanks for the post I would have missed that...

I'm amped up, I knew some stuff was coming this looks promising. Glidey fairway, some "pandemic" virus knockoff. Better reaction fairway at low speeds... well tuned plastic.. Not ready to release a understable mid because it's not "perfect" **** I guess I will wait. I'm fired up on this. A little overdue. That was a huge stack of prototypes even discounting the 4 streamlines!!

You mean the missing volt/ crave/ (relay glide) fairway.. **** yeah!!

And a overmold lid!!!!

I gotta watch that again...

IMHO they really don't need to release so many new molds. A better idea would be to stick with the current molds and come up with a (numbering?) system which specifies the stability of the mold, depending on it's production run, plastic, "dome'ness" etc.
MVP's slogan is "The leading edge of disc golf". So they should find a way to accomplish that.

That would bring us from guessing what we are buying ---> knowing what we are buying.

I just realized that my wording was confusing ("pardon" my second language). What I mean't is that I would be happier if my Volt numbers were:
8 4 0 2.5 for Cosmic Neutron
8 5 -0.5 2 for Fission
8 5 -1 2 for Neutron
8 5 -2 2 for Plasma

as an example.

They called it a lid but the profile didn’t look very lid-like to me. I wish they showed it a little better.

I love that they do this. Giving us a little insight as to what's coming Is awesome. Also, as someone who's worked behind the scenes in injection molding, I really like hearing that they are moving everything in house, and taking time to really get the molds and the plastics right. Unlike a lot of DG companies, these guys are doing things the RIGHT way. Its not easy to take the route they have, to ax a huge chunk of their lineup, including some really popular discs, and to have trust that it's best for the long term. They have a vision and a plan,and they are sticking with it! Playing the long game is scary and can be pretty risky. Good for MVP!

Makes me happy to be an unabashed Gyro fan!

The Proto they showed didn’t look overmolded to me. However. Just because the Proto isn’t overmolded doesn’t mean the production won’t be.

They mentioned that it was going to be an overmold, just that they made a printed prototype that wasn't overmolded just to get a feel of it.
