And i hope that the Volt is straight unlike the Teebird. Which is straightish until the finish sets in too hard for tighter spots. The world is full of slightly to moderately hard finishing discs but more than TB HSS for wind fighting and much less HSS without super glide (River and FD already cover that) would make a disc easy to place reliably in all conditions. If power control is mastered and the disc ain't too slick in the rain or cold.
The TB is straight, straighter (lands with less fade) in dx when slightly beat.
The specs have been closer to a SL. In comparison to a longer TB, the Starfire-X is suppose to fit that bill. Judging by the profile of the Volt on MVP's page, the profile looks more like an "L"- mold like a SL, which would lead me to believe that there is going to be some turn during the HSS portion of it's flight (assuming the profile is correct). Keeping the rim width out of the 1.7-1.9 range is good for MVP because the market is already saturated with good molds in these ranges. Making it a 2.0 puts it more in the realm of distance drivers and away from tweeners. I think that is a good for us who want a longer disc without feeling like we have to borrow monkey fingers to do so.
I think the rim width will be comfortable enough without it being too cumbersome. The gyro will help it go further yielding greater distances ( I assume) than those that are in the same width category. Overall, I think this is a good combination of things making this driver seem promising. Will it be any good and live up to the hype? I'm curious to see.
