I wish the volt had the same flight but retained the same handfeel as the rest of their fairway drivers. I’ve tried it and I just don’t like the way it feels.

**** so I went out playing a week ago towards sunset.. At my place luckily.. Took my prettiest dark pink swirl proton Spin. Lost it on the third hole. Looked 5 times finally found it this morning. Found another guys disc that's been lost for 3 yrs. Haha

I'm on the list for a Halloween eclipse Crave too.. It's been a good day so far

The short answer -- it hasn't come out yet. The longer answer is it depends. I too have been searching for a Speed 6 spot that flies 6/4-5/0/0. An OS Relay would be perfect. i have tried all in the MVP lineup and the closest are max weight Shock -- not the older runs but one of the newer runs. It is labelled as 6.5/5/-1/2. But at max weight I don't find it has that much HSS. The LSS is definitely there so that is why its not my ideal yet. A Switch and Inspire have too much HSS. A Volt is faster and and the Neutron runs are definitely don't have much HSS. Perhaps .5. The Fission Volts, especially the lighter ones, can give you more of that Speed 6 flight, but too much finesse and it is too fast. A Speed 6 with 0/0 would be great. Of the Relays, the older Circuit Run and the Proton looking Neutron ones have been more OS compared to the newer ones. I have some newer ones that have a -2 right off the shelf. The Relay is a staple in my bag and I agree that a more OS with little fade would be great.

I meant Servo in post above. Not Shock.

I recently got a 168g N Resistor that makes a fine complement to my N Relay. It is not as OS as the numbers say but always flies straight and fades at the end.

Yeah my Resistor was board flat almost concave it was a beasty. Definitely a FB at slower speed wannabe. Nowhere near a Relay.. I found the Servo pretty beefy too I think it's more the OS Relay Forehand Disc.. Backhand there's too much separation.. For me. If you were tossing 400 though maybe. I found it glideless but maybe that's what you want.

It's the Crave for me in that next step up from the Relay (166) slot.. My fission Photon is 143g is the tweener but it's not as FH resistant. I have a few Craves spanning different weights and plastics, my proton is pretty beefy. So I'm just gonna say that maybe it's the "Archer" ...

I would agree on Craves but I have found them the most inconsistent disc in the MVP fairway lineup. I have some (all near the same weight) that have a -1 to -1.5 HSS where others are a 0 with a LSS of a 2-2.5. I am envisioning an OS Relay with no HSS off the shelf and with a fade of 1 to 1.5. I agree that the Servo has a bit too much fade for that shot but I feel it is closer and more consistent than the Crave.

All I notice is that is has a bit more dome than my truly OS 2016 Circuit Series Proton Resistor. If I gave it #s I would go 6.5 | 4 | 0 | 2. So pretty close to a Teebird, but definitively feels different in the hand.

That my good friend is called the "Switch"

I got a couple really like em. Problem is the lack of HSS and that sweet fade dont always play well together...
