its just the lighting, i had a friend say the same thing. the only difference i saw between the apex and eternal bobcats were the center dome, apex was flat and eternal had a small rise but not a pop top or even moderately domed. the bottom pic is the runway on the right if that's the pic in question.

Same question has been asked for 2+ years. You're not going to get the answer

i guess i wont buy their discs if i don't know where the plastic comes from. how silly to keep that a secret.. my local shop doesnt carry them either and i dont know anyone who bags MINT to feel the plastic, so i guess it will always be a mystery to me thats too bad

hard to beleive someone hasnt bought one and compared molding marks and plastic feel with streamline discs?

It's been unofficially confirmed as MVP molded a few times, so you can be pretty confident. If the plastics didn't give em away, the identically shaped weight sticker should.

The lacking of official confirmation is likely due to MVP placing restrictions, rather than Mint not wanting to be forthcoming. They've published a lot more info about runs/plastics than most manufacturers.

Yeah it's 100% not MINT keeping a secret... This is a company essentially built off of the concept of nerding out over EXACTLY what run/plh/plastic/flight path your disc has. It would be completely out of character for them to hide that kind of information if they were allowed to share.

To add to what Hyzer said, the little horizontal "injection points" that allow MVP to add an overmold to their discs are also present on the Alpha. It's MVP plastic, if blended slightly differently in some cases to MINT's specifications.

So anyway, where's my Bobcat? I live in constant fear that they're gonna launch and sell out before I get my 4 or 5...
