Yeah they 3d printed a couple proto's including the new mid / theory replacement.

And an understable complement to the Ohm booyah!

I'm real happy with their technology improvements and what not, better fission, better molding, better electron. The whole 2 factories thing explains a lot. It's what we've been waiting to hear!

I am surprised to see there isn't a stable fairway/control driver in the Streamline lineup.

...yet
Although some Drifts can be surprisingly stable.

Lift and Drift seem to fit this description exactly. Numbers for stability are different than the flight.

My Lifts are a -1 turn (at best) and the Drift i threw was slower speed and also -1 turn...(with 400ft power)

Both heavy and neutron plastic

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've long argued this. The names and marketing of these companies do nothing for me. And unfortunately the nomenclature developed by Innova is not how most players rate discs - which makes for more confusion.

I dont know but a baseline 4 number flight rating is better than nothing.. Except the Comet 0 haha.

I'm pretty comfortable with MVP's flight ratings, the "is the plasma more or less stable" problem is a pain in the ass! Everything else I can pretty much estimate. I like that they tagged some of their fission runs differently but really they need to use .25 adjustments if they do every plastic with a different rating.

I think MVP is headed for mass consistency like you've ne ver seen before!

in my experience mvps have already been extremely consistent. my plasma volt flies like my neutron volts. my release day volt flies like a new volt. i think the inconsistencies are usually with the thrower.

Not even close.
My four volts for example are so far apart from each other that it does not matter who throws them. It's not that difficult to spot the difference in how discs fly. Don't need to be a high rated player for that.

agreed. My Plasma Volt legitimately has -2 turn even though it is new.
My Proton has -0.75 ish turn
My Cosmic is beeeeefy even when thrown with 400' of power.
This is not consistent. However, Volts seem to be the most inconsistent mold I've found. Waves also have a bit of variation but not as much in my experience.

okay so for the last 7 years 10-15 of my volts have always flown the same but apparently if some people on a forum think theirs fly differently it changes reality.

whats your assertion, that you throw the same everytime like robot? and or you have the ability to decide flight numbers off YOUR throw?

theres always been an argument that neutron and proton flew differently in general and its total BS.
