I can't imagine many online retailers are buying all of these MVP accessories. Except KW, but he also has the physical store. I wonder if they're doing it more for filler merch in tourney packs, such as the Circuit (and spin off) events.

Of course, like you said, I got some of all of the new accessories in. The Osmosis Sport Bag and Ball peaked my interest the most because I sell a TON of SportSacks and DD Dirt Bags online and in house. The glow sticks will probably sell better in house than online. Clipboards, who knows, I only got 4 of those to test the waters lol. The UV flashlight is what it is, but I'm guessing geared more towards in house sales since you can find larger LED UV lights for not much more money than this small one online. Overall, though, the majority of the accessories sell equally online and in house for me.

I dont need to buy new dinner plates... I can just use my back up supply of ions and volts. Absolutely brilliant. Hand wash them, and they wont warp. If anything they will last longer than all my current dinnerware. And I dont ever use a knife so Im fine there.

The thing is MVP offers good prices so it is easy to carry their stuff and make $. These extras only help expand the branding as well as offer quality stuff many use. It isn't a matter of buying them all but of availability for the "things". You need to have them to keep up with big boys and might as well explore distribution avenues to pull a dollar.

Does anyone else throw fission photon? The lighter MVP drivers sure fight wind better.

I had a 143 photon in my bag for a long time and it was my distance bomber but it always felt a little odd going between that and a normal weight disc so I switched it for a wave

The Photon is my long distance driver. I carry 3 Fission and 1 Neutron.

155g Fission -- FR board flat. Super straight to fade.

163g Fission -- second run pop top. Super beat in. Distance turnover, roller, s-shot with less power

167g Fission -- second run pop-top. Newer. My long distance bomber. Straight to fade. Great wind resistance. Control s-shots. Great for hyzer shots that need glide.

155g Neutron -- super flat top. OS hyzer shots. Forehand flex shots. Long distance driver in head or cross winds.

My 160 feels like a 170 disc, my 150 is a light weight Max distance disc, but my 140g is my flippy understable distance driver.
