Yesterday my Christmas started a little early when my MVP Servo pre-order showed up from CommunityDiscs.com. I immediately loved the way it felt in my hand and couldn’t wait to throw it so first thing this morning I took my dogs out to a nearby parking lot and let it fly.
Keep in mind, I’m no MikeC / TDGV. Although I am an MVP homer, they don’t send us chumps free discs to test….yet *hint-hint*. I’m a low level intermediate player who throws a TL & Volt about 360 on a good day. I’m starting to figure it all out and occasionally bust one effortlessly loose but they are few and far between. Also to note about the video, didn’t notice you couldn’t see my release from where I was standing so I’ll try to shoot a few more shots tomorrow morning before the family comes over.
It was quite windy this morning so the first few throws caught a little too much hyzer and faded pretty hard but after the wind died down and I got loose, I was able to get the MVP Servo on a much tighter and flatter line.
The thing I noticed was that it had a pretty consistent fade on the end. It wasn’t a big fade but when it started slowing down to fade, it dove hard. I liked that about it. That fade helped it keep a nice tight line which is crucial here in North Carolina.
All of this falls in line with what MVPhas to say about it:
The Servo is a straight-stable fairway driver.
The Servo is part of a new class of fairway drivers with a lower power requirement and more controllable speed. Its extended GYRO™ Push yields a straighter lateral movement and immense glide with an effortless forward fade. Both high- and low-power throwers alike will achieve easy pinpoint accuracy with ultimate line control, making the Servo their go-to placement driver in the fairway.
Conclusion: All in all, I really like the Servo although I find MVP is starting to get a lot of overlap in their discs. Maybe this is just part of the process for a new-ish company. If you read their descriptions of the discs on their website they all start to sound very similar so I can see how newer players will be confused. The thing I love about this disc is that it is made for slower arm speeds and as someone who doesn’t often attempt to throw it 110% (I tend to prefer accuracy over distance) I appreciate a company accommodating all players. After a little practice I think the Servo will contend for a spot in my MVP-heavy bag that currently consists of:
MVP Ion – Proton Soft
MVP Ion – Eclipse Soft
Dynamic Disc Judge – Soft
MVP Axis – Proton
Dynamic Disc Suspect – Lucid
MVP Tangent – Neutron
Innova TL – Star extremely old
MVP Volt – Proton
MVP Amp – Neutron
Innova Boss – Champion and extremely old
