I found the opposite...That is wasn't as fast as those discs but glided better (which is why it's not great in the wind). I never thought Orcs glided much, which is why they so overstable when underpowered yet understable over a certain speed. I feel similar about the old mold Beast, though I think it glides a touch more.

Saint or Volt for someone who throws 400ft?

Both are kinda gross. A lot of variation among Saints from what i've seen so far, apparently there is some variation with Volts too. I'd avoid sparkle Saints, as they've all been stupidflippy, maybe try out a nice firm gold line one or an opto with some pop to its dome. I've had good luck with those and it basically behaves like a champ sidewinder for me. Has its uses but it's not "ol' trusty". From what i'm told there are apparently some Volts that aren't stupidflippy too, my black one however, is. I think you could control either if you really wanted to. Personally, I'd still rather throw a Striker/Eagle/Teebird/blargh... I'll keep trying the Volt but so far its a meh.

For me (I can get a disc out to 450 on a good day) my lightest weight Volt has just a tiny amount of turn, while my max weight volt has quite a bit of turn, if its that nice really tight S you are looking for try a 168 Volt.

My 173 pink volt has a bunch of turn to it. Way flippier than I expected, this plus the shallowness of the rim is making me sad about this disc.

Yeah, this disc doesn't sound very exciting to me. I wont bother saying it on DGCR, as I don't want to be burned alive, but its just an understable fairway with moderate glide. I'd personally rather throw an FD. Those have been pretty sweet for me, and have great glide. Also Volts feel awful in the hand to me. If you have big hands, they are just too shallow.

I threw two of mine a fair amount today. I quite like them. I still have a LOT of form work to do but they were getting out there with my Flow and the Air Saints and whatnot. Pretty pleased with them, to be honest.

My brother-in-law liked his too. He has terrible form and throws 200' or so. He did well with his.

It's not the second coming or the world's greatest disc, but it's a solid 7/10 or 8/10 disc that will fill a need, I think, for many.

Anyone got any recent reviews on this disc? I shoot PDs right now for fairways and can get them to 380-390'. Would this be a pointless disc for me?

I use a beat p pd for s curves or turning disc and an s line for a straight fading disc.

Totally pointless would mean that it has no advantage ever in any hole and any situation. That is probably going too far but if you look at it from the perspective of throwing better with discs that you know if they don't perform like you need them to then you have a dilemma. If you have no holes in the bag why change? If you have a hole go ahead and try a new disc. Not owning a Volt that is like the majority i cannot say how they perform so i'd look at the videos of MikeC on Youtube.
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.

Does the Volt have useable or unuseable flippyness? This is one of the reasons I haven't pulled the trigger and bought one. I'm concerned if I will get one that is not stable enough.

The ones flying on MikeC vids have usable flippyness mine are a matter of taste and my taste differs from how my Volts perform. Since the local store carries probably the same batch as mine came from i can expect no help from buying another one and i'm not buying more of these unseen. Sorry MVP burned once means easily that i'm not dipping my toe in the water twice until i can get verification from others that now it is safe. Besides i prefer my Leos and Rivers to the flight that Mike produced with the Volts and having slick skin...

The one I bought flies somewhere between a Champ Eagle-L and a shorter Champ Valkyrie. Not that interesting of a disc to me, but they're usable.

What is the range of this disc? Like what's the Max d and average range people are getting on golf lines?
