like the OG bronze teslas

Like proton that had a little bit of plasma blended into it, that's how I would describe them

2,700+ posts. I'd call that comprehensive.

I bag a wrath that's even more sparkly. It's the slightly softer/grippier proton also.

Never thrown a Volt. Got a 173g neutron on the way. Are Neutron Volts usually flat or do they have dome?

Also, if anyone has the energy - how do you think a Volt would impact my current bag?

Would love if it were able to help me consolidate somehow. That's my disc golf goal for the summer.

they can be flat or domey, flippy or beefy, i've seen wide variance in volts over the years.

If its a "normal" volt then it will fly with a little turn but not flippy, and a very forward slow penetrating fade.. it will fly longer than most speed 8 discs.

I ultimately found Volts unnecessary, a Wrath was consistently more easy and reliable for the shots i used to make with a volt and they break in to fly like i wanted a volt to fly.

Your bag already has some overlap, adding a Volt to it will only add even more overlap between the TBird/Stalker/CD2, the volt will likely be longer for you though.. but then why not just use a faster disc like your CD2? you are going to have a hard time deciding what to throw with all that overlap... even the thunderbird might overlap.

ive learned over the years to pick an overstable and stable choice for each speed category and leave it at that, maybe cycle some of them

r.
Fwiw, my 175 neutron volt is flat as a board. I believe most of them are.

Neutron Volts are usually flat to small dome, barring first runs. They tend to have almost as much late fade as a Thunderbird but almost the distance of a Valk.

They fly a lot like a flat top Z Wasp, but of course faster.

There is almost no overlap with the Energy. There is some overlap with a Tesla.... but the Volt is much better.

Energy is faster and more overstable than anything in your bag. If you doubled the speed of your Resistor and made the fade more aggressive that's a rough idea of what you'll get.

The Volt will be similar in speed to the Thunderbird, but straighter with more glide. Should fly like a faster Teebird. Between these three molds you will definitely have overlap, and will have to decide which you like best

I'm not helping with this post much, but I think energy was referring to looking at his bag and commenting on it - not the mold
