Honestly, I think the reasoning for the over mold is counter intuitive to the flight of an eagle. The best part of an eagle is the turn and fade that it gets which lets it work the lines that it does. The gyroscopic effect of the over mold is going to cause an eagle like disc to turn slower and fade slower over the same ranges, essentially making it more teebirdesque. Teebird + gyro = straight flight synergy!!!!!!

True, but it would be interesting to see if the overmold could make a disc shape that initially is a bit too flippy and has a bit too sharp fade easier to control - the result could be an even more predictable EX :-)
Going on what MVP has come out with so far though, I think a Teebird (longer Vector) or XL (longer Axis) type of disc would be a better bet.

a stalker straight disc that has better glide would be the fairway driver. between the vector and axis but longer.

Based on the Vectors I've got a Banshee would be closer to a longer/faster Vector than a Teebird ever could.

I was thinking preds more than anything. Strong, but forward fade.

Eagle X or TeeBird like discs would be amazing if MVP could make it work... i could imagine a teebird + gyro glide = money

this makes the most sense. Maybe a Leopard style disc might also be a boon.

I could see that working very well as well.

I'm going be a little quick here but I think it would be great if MVP released two discs at once.

Understable/true turn Mid: Maybe call it the Array. But this disc should be something like a beat in Stingray, beat Meteor, or a really beat up Ontario Roc. A disc for the woods that will turn with power and not fight much out of an anhyzer. Ideally it would be butter for a hyzer flip, turn well on a flat throw, and be just as long as the Vector.

Control Driver: Not a fairway. While a good fairway would be nice I think everyone would be better served by a Driver that fits in the range of a PD, OLF, or Avenger. This would give us a good impression of what a driver will be really capable of if it is given a smaller or larger rim. It would also be a lot easier for MVP to make adjustments to future molds because they'll only need to go a bit wider for Nuke/Destroyer discs. Or a bit smaller for Cyclones and Gazelles.

The reason it would be ideal to release two discs at once at this point in time is because they would be able to fill out their line up bellow Driver discs (Fairway, control, or distance) in having 3 mids and 2 putters that can cover a whole lot of shots. But there would also be an appropriate addition to everyone just waiting for a driver. I love that MVP is tight lip and slower moving than a lot of the other companies. Granted, they are smaller and have to be slower. But if they wait to long for a driver once it comes out it will have lost its luster, sort of like Ti. Ti is nice but its advertising was a little bunk. An MVP driver will be nice, but in less than a year there will be "we'll we knew that was coming" sense around the disc.

Release both at once, and be awesome. Even if you have to change the driver like you did with the Ion it would be well worth it.

Well, with my recent rediscovery of the Gazelle, I'd say a gyro'd version of that disc would be awesome.

yes a PD/OLF/Avenger/Striker type disc would also be really nice. Just a shame I own too many Avengers already.

Wouldnt a truly overatable mold be almost impossible to do with "gyro" tech?
