From MVP:

The Shock is our slightly overstable fairway driver.

The Shock is a more stable complement to the Volt. With a high power throw, it will hold a long straight line with less turn and immense glide followed by a late dependable fade.

That description sounds nice, I would rather see no turn, but this sounds like a good disc for their fairway line. It sounds like they are leaving the door open for an overstable fairway.

God I hope this is what I wanted the volt to be.

Me too...but if it feels that shallow you can count me out.

Yep, that shallow feel the volt has is really tough for my grip, pretty much rules the volt, mamba, tern, etc out for me.

so the Volt and Mamba have the same depth? I have a Mamba and really like the lines it produces. the grip can be weird. I don't throw the Mamba often. I don't know if I'd want a workhorse driver in that depth...

Shock has the same 1.1cm rim depth that Volt has so I'd assume it will feel quite the same.

The volt was annoyingly shallow

It is ok for us with smaller hands and fingers but mine seems to flip and fade more than a straight disc should. In fact mine flew like a faster longer new C Eagle L or a broken in SEX. Good for s-curves but not lasers. There are different Volts out there and those are the ones that i'd like to have gotten instead. Who knows i might already have a Shock flight wise in my Volts.
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.

My Volt flew somewhat like 1st run S-CD's do for me, just not quite as consistently (my form is horrible still). I've also seen someone throw perfectly straight drives with another Volt.

From the descriptions of others here there are different kinds of Volts and looking at the videos by MikeC his disc is better than mine but still fading more than the longer River. Thrown low enough or with great spin the good Volts can be laser straight but that is true of many discs. My FR S CD is way more HSS and noticeably more LSS and more power hungry than the Volts i have. They would complement each other nicely but frankly i'd pick the FR CD River or Leo combo for different stabilities out of FWs first. But i don't do that i'm often not carrying two FWs unless there is wind and if i do it is beefier trick shot disc or a real wind beater (the same disc two roles) meaning probably an FLX Predator.

Disc variances suck.

The Shock will be released on February 1st, and is available for pre-order. This disc should be what everyone wanted from the Volt.

Here's the link to pre-order. Just $14.98 and $2.81 for S/H.
