Default Electron Baseline Plastic Experimental Formulas 1&2

MVP Disc Sports has traditionally produced only high-durability premium plastic discs. However we are keen to the desirability of a "baseline" plastic's performance qualities, particularly in the putt and approach class. Although baseline has a traditional stigma as "the cheap plastic", for many players the feel and break-in of a baseline plastic is superior in narrow-rim classes.
Years of experimentation and testing have gone on in the background of MVP's rise to fame as a premium plastic brand. We're pleased to let the fans in on our best-kept secret: Electron Plastic.

Electron has been crafted into the two classic blend profiles of firm and soft, presented here as Experimental Formula 1 (firm) and Experimental Formula 2 (soft). These are pre-production blends which may change before a future production run of Electron Plastic, and feature a unique surface texture and look not found in MVP offerings. In particular the GYRO™ rims feature an experimental vapor-honed surface that aids in the optimal baseline feel.

Additionally the putter mold used for this Experimental edition is a prototype model. No, it isn't called the Prototype, it's a yet-unnamed prototype putter we've been testing. The mold is based on the Axiom Envy, with a beginning stability slightly less overstable than the Envy. As the mold breaks in, it becomes a very straight floaty GYRO™ putter. Collectors will have a genuine pre-engraved pressing of the mold, as it currently has no factory marking or logo engraving on the rim, consistent with our in-house test pressings used during development. As a prototype this mold is currently NOT PDGA Approved. It's worth noting that the bulk of this Experimental edition weighs
in the high-160s.

Just 500 of each blend have been produced for this Experimental edition. We hope the fans enjoy such a unique introduction to our work with Electron Plastic, as we gear up to roll it out in production for 2015. Dealers are limited to 10 of each blend

Huh.

Sounds like a good move developing a baseline plastic.

That does seem a little curious, but, whatever. I'll be interested to try these, even just to feel the plastic and see how its durability is. MVP isn't exactly known for grip, so it'll be interesting to see the results here.
