I thought id be able to get easier turn than with a leopard. It's so flippy, my wife now uses it and gets a good turn.

I got an MVP Volt to try out their plastic. Figured it would be a decent hyzer-flip disc. Roller city. Took about three days to give up trying to power it down enough. Became a junk disc and is now somewhere in a lake.

A couple months later I was looking for a stable fairway and got an MVP Shock. Flippier than the Volt. Gave it away, and last I heard it's that guy's water disc too.

Tie between a TD2 and Coyote. Both Star plastic. The TD2 was OK it just didn't turn as much as I expected. More like -2, 2 plus the shallow rim. The Coyote just sucked in Star plastic, was slick, domey and flippy. Junk. I never buy Star plastic for mids ever again.

It didn't take me long to dump both.

Do you think this was a fluke? I have a volt and shock on the way, and after watching Mike C's videos (who has a much stronger arm than me), they both appear to be what their flight numbers show. Hoping these are not like yours...

Someone told me the First Run Shocks were not as anticipated, and subsequent runs actually were stable, so I may have had one of the early versions. Don't know about the Volt. I don't have Mike's arm, but I've got plenty of power to know how stuff should fly. Aside from the flight, though, I had trouble getting used to the curvature between the rim and underside of the flightplate. Some discs aren't for me... they might be right for you.

Blizzard drivers. Bought a Boss, a Katana, and a Destroyer, all bubble plated. All flew like crap. Waste of time.

Blizzard Pigs, however, own. Hard.

I'm planning on them being a bit more stable than they are for mike, since my River covers anything from straight hyzerflips to turnovers.

I bought a Prodigy M3 Proto, which is actually a M2. So it was far more stable than I was expecting.

for being one of the only people to dismiss MVP discs. I am not an MVP hater but I really get sick of how much people fap over them. I have an Ion and Tangent and I love my Tangie but I can't stand when someone here says "recommend me a Discraft disc!" and then receives "buy MVP, you'll thank me later /thread" which has happened VERY much on this forum.

What's right for some may not be right for all

anything blizzard is trash. bought a krait that had more beef than a flat 12xfirebird max weight. destroyer would flip like it was a 4/10 katana. so unpredictable and a paper plate in the wind.

zombee-filling a spot between stalker and buzz that honestly really doesnt need to be filled.

pro saint- shoulda kept it a speed 9 like the regular saint. the speed 8 is between a firebird and a max weight ti stalker that i both have in my bag and would be worthless to have a pro saint. i bought two at first too cuz i was so sure i wanted to bag them being as my saint is my go to straight d driver.

other honorable mentions- TD-not a turning driver out of the box. comet-way to glidey for its own damm good.
