What’s up YoYo Universe. Hope things are good. I had the luck to try out the MVP2 for a good while this past weekend and thought to offer a few observations on it.
First thing I noticed is that its a softer design all around than the 1st MVP. Much less rigid feeling. The rims are softer, especially on the returns. There is less weight with this throw also. Its quite faster but still has the same iron clad stability as the first MVP.
On the first throw, it felt very very solid with no apparent vibe. It’s Incredibly stable with a lot, a lot of horsepower. It stays in position from start to finish. Catches are done easily with this throw. It has a lower stepped H than the first MVP which contributes to more forgiving catches as well as concentrating even more force on the rims.
During play I found it quite nimble to hop around with. Most of the players I talked to about it agree that it has even more spin than the first model. Can you imagine? Another nice improvement with play is that it can grind way better than the first one as far is palm and arm grinds go. I know this was an issue for some players with the first one. With the MVP2 I landed a palm grind right off a breakaway perfectly and it just stood there grinding away. It was beautiful. I had a smile a mile wide hehe. Then I went for an IRG and ran into a snag. This model has less of a ridge than the first one as you can see by the pics. I was able to thumb grind but could not hold it too long. It will take more practice of course and maybe smaller fingers.
Overall I was not disappointed. If you liked the first MVP, You’re probably gonna love the MVP2. I feel its definitely worth the expense. Its a Softer hold, Faster, Lighter, Iron clad Stable, can grind and SPINS even LONGER and who does not want that???
A Big thx to YYF for making it lighter and faster without sacrificing performance.
