Interesting stamp. I'm assuming the stamp is more about the flight of the disc and less related to its name?

Both. Anodes can take any shape and facilitate energy transfer -- as I vaguely boiled down to myself via google. A neutral putter can take on varied lines, but those lines and the linear play of the disc emphasize a central focus, gravity, force.. you name it. So I took the concept of a gravitational lens, something that would guide energy from various entries into a forward-focused transmission. In the end, we had these little disc modules with beams connecting them, all sitting on a lens-shaped plane. I see a disc being worked through a lens with hyzer flip and anny pan-out forces in action, which are themselves gyroscopic effects of disc flight. It compliments the geometry of the Ion stamp and plays on the gyro + transmission vibe of the Axis stamp.

Of course none of that is meant to be plainly understood by the viewer; this conceptualizing is just a means of getting a basis that fits, preferably without being explicitly illustrative. Thanks, I love talking about my stuff.

I also like the stamp, really clean and gravitates your eye to the center. I was hoping this disc would be named "Quark" but beggers can't be choosers, thanks MVP.

We'll use the same stamp. Probably a late summer release.

Can't wait. I wish I could test it.

Great job on the stamp, Leopard.

Oh, OK then. I'll probably spring for a couple, even though I don't need them. =)

Awwww come on, commission a new stamp.

Not that I have anything against the stamp, I'd just like to see some variety. For example, I wasn't a big fan of running the same DGR stamp across all those Dismania molds. Would have rather seen that DGR stamp stay PD specific.

I have been looking for a reason to put an mpv disc in my bag without kicking out the wizard or buzzz and this sounds like it may work so I am excited.

I would think that they are using Anode to mean the polar opposite of some other disc since the most common anode is probably the negative pole of a battery. So like someone said, should we expect the cathode soon? lol Anyway the stamp is sweet and I can't wait to try one out.

Yep, me too.
