My Review:
The Elite Pro MRV is a small diameter medium speed stable midrange. I would compare it's flight to that of a broken in Roc. The MRV will hold a good, straight line-drive flight with a bit of fade at the end. The MRV is a little faster, with slightly less turnover resistance and less fade than a Roc and it will fly very straight if you can throw it with finesse. Distance-wise it is similar to the Roc and would fall into the category of "long midrange." In overall stability, the MRV is more overstable than a Comet, Shark, or Aurora MS, but slightly less overstable than a Roc or MRX. The Elite Pro version of the MRV is the longest flyer of em and has quite a bit more glide than the Z plastic run. I'm at a point now in my game where I could use the MRV for almost any shot in the 240-300' range and I find it almost interchangable with the Roc. I could see myself carrying either one but I couldn't imagine playing a round without one or the other. The Roc is a little better into a headwind, but the Z-MRV is a bit more stable and also works well for those occasions. If you are straddling the Roc vs. MRV fence, either are a fine disc but if you have a preference for smaller-diameter discs, the MRV might be the way to go for you. Although the MRV has less glide than some of the other midrange discs out there (Comet, Shark, Aurora MS), the MRV should be just as long or longer if your game is ready for it. The MRV is a very accurate point-to-point disc and I recommend it for players of all skill levels. It makes a fine choice for a first midrange disc or even a first driver.

Once this disc is broken in, it will fly straight with a slight tail at the end. Throw it real hard, flat & with a bunch of spin and it will work left to right. Put a little angle on it and it will make a slow, sweeping turn. I roll the MRV alot -- especially to escape trouble and it really stands up nicely with a tiny roll out when it loses momentum. If you want to save time on the course -- do some shopping and find the bright yellow versions of the MRV. (Careful -- from what I've been able to figure out Discraft has 2 yellows -- one almost flourescent yellow and the other a real dingy yellow similar to the Innova DX yellow.) The bright yellow really cuts down on the time searching for the disc if you play on tight wooded courses like I do. The downside of this disc is when I get too close to the basket I have to throw something else.
