We received some big news from MVP Disc Sports today — a new driver, the Switch, will be available in stores on February 21st. While any MVP release is newsworthy for the disc golf world, this particular driver isn’t the biggest news of the day. The MVP Switch will be an understable low speed fairway driver.
MVP fans have been craving a distance driver with the unique MVP look, feel, and Gyro Technology, for a very long time.
The Motion will be an overstable driver, the Tesla stable-overstable, the Inertia stable-understable, and the Impulse understable.
All four MVP distance drivers will have moderate width rims of 2cm. While the rim width of these distance drivers is only 1.5mm wider than the popular MVP Volt, the aerodynamic profile places these drivers in a different speed class. With that said, these drivers won’t be quite as fast as the speed 13 and 14 high speed drivers made by other companies.
All the MVP distance drivers will have a similar size diameter of 21.1cm. Weight ranges for the new discs will range from 155 to 175g. The new distance drivers should be great for long controlled drives.
The Inertia has already been PDGA approved and we are expecting its release in early spring (likely the end of March or the beginning of April).
MVP says this about the Inertia,
The first release will be the Neutron Inertia, date to be announced. The stability spectrum of this driver class places the Inertia in a workhorse stable-to-understable slot. It provides a sampling of the speed, workability, and GYRO™ effect of the full distance class.
Other exciting news for MVP/Axiom fans is that the Alias and Envy will also be available in Proton plastic beginning February 21st. This transparent plastic blend gives Axiom fans dozens of additional attractive color options.
If you are an MVP fan, start saving your pennies as there will be lots of hot new products hitting the market in 2014.
