Have you thrown a Volt? How does it compare to a Saint? Easier to shape lines? More distance potential?

Haven't got a holt of a volt yet. Hoping for a Reyes Magos surprise.

If i have understood correctly i got one of the more understable early manufacture Volts and it is more HSS than my GL Saint 167. No telling if it is flippier than normal. I'm not in love with my individual discs and can't be sure how representative they are of those molds in general. Or the range of variation within that mold.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

So I would say it like this: The Saint, if you're skilled enough to throw with some significant hyzer flip action, you'll probably really enjoy the Saint in calm conditions. It's comfortable cause its in that 1.9 cm range, has some great glide, really is sneaky long, and can fly on a very straight line. On the flip side, there are some who would call it "flippy". It will flip over A LOT in a headwind, all but the flat out pro will have shots with it where you don't get the flight you want because you over/under-estimated the amount of hyzer flip on your shot. If a Teebird is a 0 HSS, my Saints are a -1.5. IMO, the cloudy opto ones are more stable than the sparkles. Every sparkle Saint I've thrown was useless to me at 400', just way too much flippage.

Now the Volt... fuck that disc.

edit: OK OK... I'm jaded because the first 3 I bought were all flippy pieces of SHIT. More flippy than a sparkle Saint. Then I got a "good" one that was actually fairly HSS. THAT one I will admit I do like and between that single Volt and my favorite blood Red Saint: Advantage Volt. Mainly because its a bit more versatile. Where the Saint is great at line locking (if you dial that flip in) the Volt can do more. Sorta like the old Eagle vs Teebird argument.

First time poster here, anxious to rally support for a premium plastic Mercy. Who's with me? Also, the only colors for Zero Line Mercys are pink, white, yellow and red correct? <3

Welcome!

I think you are right about the colors. I'd try a premium Mercy for fun. I think though I'm more interested in stiff eze mids and fairway drivers (saint & river). Just my opinion. I love lat and their sister companies.

You won't see any EZE in the future unfortunately, they stopped making it as it apparently didn't work well with wider rimmed discs. Would love an Opto/GL Mercy for driving.

Curious
What is it doing well now that it beat? Still a deep hyzer/headwind disc but more usable or something different?

I sincerely hope that you are right! I have ten zero line mercys and love them for putting, and I will definitely be buying a stack in whatever premium plastic they come out in to use as a driving putter.

Jro is most certainly correct. I just hope it'll be a bit faster process than it was with the Pure. :)

I can see how a beat villain would be ( o Y o ).

I thought they were keeping eze and calling it Zero firm or something like that.

nah, it's just gonna be zero that's stiffer. Eze's out. Not that I think it'll suck, probably will be just fine. I really like eze though, trying to scrounge up as many mercies in eze as I can.
