MVP Inertia Review
The easy-to-throw Inertia is a workable fairway driver with some extra speed. It is a reliable shot-shaper for intermediate-level players, and a stable driver for low-power arms. This is one of the best discs in stock for developing speed and distance without sacrificing control. This MVP Inertia review provides a snapshot of this versatile disc for sale.
MVP Inertia Plastics
- Neutron: MVP's "flagship blend," this durable premium plastic has a slick feel and a bit of flex.
- Plasma: An eye-catching blend with an iridescent sheen. It has similar durability and hand feel to Neutron.
- Proton: Stiff and extremely durable, this blend has a translucent look and is similar to Innova Champion or Discraft Z. Discs fly a bit more overstable in Proton and will maintain original flight patterns for years.
MVP Inertia Flight Numbers
- Speed: 9
- Glide: 5
- Turn: -2
- Fade: 2
The Inertia's combination of high-speed turn and low-speed fade make it a great shot-shaper in the 250-350 foot range. Players with average power will see reliable mid-flight anhyzer drift on a flat release, and a easy hyzer-flip when released on angle. Once it makes the initial turn, the 5 glide rating will keep it penetrating forward before a gentle fade brings it back to center.
It performs very well in the woods, carving tight flex shots at a controlled speed, or simply staying dead straight and finishing with a gentle hyzer. Power arms will find the Inertia quite understable, and useful for pure turnovers, rollers, and long-panning flex shots on wide-open fairways.
- Diameter: 21.1cm
- Height: 1.4cm
- Rim Depth: 1.2cm
- Rim Width: 1.85cm
Like many MVP discs, the Inertia has a flat top, giving it a fast and aerodynamic hand feel. The relatively thin 1.85cm rim width is just a bit thicker than a standard fairway driver. Players of all hand sizes will grip and rip the Inertia with confidence from both the backhand and forehand side.
When it debuted in 2014, the Inertia was marketed as an 11-speed distance driver. After the addition of several higher speed discs into their lineup, MVP updated their flight ratings in 2018. The Inertia is now a "tweener" disc, sitting right on the line between a fairway and a distance driver. Within the MVP family, it most resembles the popular Axiom Insanity.
Skill Level Recommendations
- Novice: Beginners will find it stable to slightly overstable.
- Intermediate: A versatile shot-shaper that excels in the 275-350 foot range. Potential every-hole workhorse, particularly on wooded courses.
- Advanced: An understable complimentary disc for pure turnovers, hyzer-flips, and rollers.
- Pro: Niche disc for rollers and trick shots.
