discraft mrv?

Postby swel304 » Mon Sep 04, 2006 11:07 am

Is the MRV discontinued? I found a X plastic one on the course a few months ago with no name and I really like it. So i was looking around to get a backup and dont see them new anywhere, and they dont seem to be on discraft's site. I did find and purchase a used Z on ebay that looks to be in good shape, just wondering if I need to be on the lookout for more.

The MRV has been discontinued. I belive the new midrange that replaced it is the Buzzz

if you look at the universal flight chart the closest thing to it is a buzz with the buzzz being just a tick less stable. and yes, it is discontinued.

unfortunately the buzz has way less predictable of a fade than an mrv. too bad for you , cuz gotta go gotta throw was selling them for real cheap when they got discontinued... i bought a few just to try out. great disc, but i like my beat dx rocs a little more and they fly almost the same. i gave 'em to friends.

go the path of the dx roc. they're bigger diameter but once beat in the flight path is almost the same as an X mrv.

dont get me wrong, i like my dx roc too. Maybe the mrv just compliments my throw better, I can get really presice midrange shots with it. I feel comfortable shooting for holes barely wider than this disc and almost always make it through, with the roc I need a bit more room. I think I just get a smoother release because the rim isnt so deep as the roc.

hopefully you'll feel the same way about your rocs someday. i used to hate sidearming rocs, for example, because the rim is tricky to hold with a sidearm grip... i figured it out though, and now a sidearm with the roc is really good shot for me (great for approaching inside 200').

maybe the mrv does go a touch straighter, though... ? but i know i can hit some really tiny windows with my dx rocs... the beat ones, especially.

does anyone know what mrv stands for? i noticed the D mold says MRVector on it.

I'm guessing the "MR" stands for Mid-range.

I may be mistaken but I heard that the X MRV would continue to exist while only the Z and prod would be discontinued.

According to their website Everything Disc Golf still has MRV's in all plastics. In fact they are closing out the Pro-D's at $4.95!

The mrv is a great disc. I carried it as my only midrange for a long time. It was replaced by a buzz. A buzz overlaps with your roc, but it may be worth a try for you.

Incidentally, I get plenty of predictability from mine.

today was a good example of why Ilike this disc so much. I landed a drive about 100 feet from the basket on an open hole. My first though was I bet i can hit the basket with my mrv, and not only did i hit it I made it in, and thats just the most noteable great shot I made with it today. Maybe its just the confidence I have in the disc but I say stick with what works. Within 60 feet or so I like the roc but beyond that I always use the mrv, and I feel I could make more putts with it but it tends to pass the basket too much if I do miss. It also makes a good slow turner for me on shorter shots, and its low profile makes it great in the wind. Discraft D plastic seems to beat up to easy to me, but i think I will pick up a few x and z if I can. anyone got any they dont use?
