I've had a few comments asking for the story behind the disc/giveaway. And since we've hit the front page, there are some people who have entered but aren't fully aware of what exactly makes this disc special. So here we go -
I work for MVP Disc Sports. I am their community manager, and it's my job to be an active member of and interface with the Disc Golf Community. (I love my job.) We're giving this away simply, because we can.
The disc itself was signed by James Conrad, World Champion, after our celebration party at HQ. We grabbed a bunch of Discs and he signed them. Once the ink dried, I bagged them - and they've been waiting to make it out into the world, ever since.
Now it's time to let this peacock fly.
A winner will be chosen on 10/27 at Noon Eastern! I will announce it here and reach out to them via Reddit PMs! Good luck!
Edit: I see the call for a Direct Message. I will use that method instead. Obligatory RIP My Inbox
Edit 2: Explained giveaway and disc history.
Edit 3: CONGRATS /u/boxbatter2016 - I'll be sending you a direct message to help you claim your prize. (reddit raffler results: https://www.redditraffler.com/raffles/qc2ney)
Don't worry we will do other giveaways in the future!
Ah fellow resturant worker I see?!
Nah. Ex Union Stage Crew.
Now I post on the internet about frisbees.
Don't do chat. Just use a PM. Spammers use chat to harass people.
Yes it is. It’s just shit to use. Fits Reddit well
Agreed, and I don't even know where to find the chat option!
You are a champ for this, good looking out for the community
If you guys just keep giving these away, you're going to devalue the one that you gave to me. Then I won't be as special. What the heck?
Best customer service answer ever!
Very much agreed, PM is way better.
Another reason to not use Chat is how many people use 3rd party reddit browsing apps which don't have Chat because reddit hasn't released the API. They'll never even know you are trying to reach them.
Edit: can someone help me understand why I was downvoted for offering legit advice? Are people mad that I'm suggesting something that would open up the prize pool if they weren't to use chat? I use reddit is fun as my Reddit browser app and it doesn't have chat, neither do all other 3rd party browsers. I don't give a damn about karma, just wondering what my transgression was here...
Holy balls in my mouth sign me up
Damn, sign me up too. Oh and also the disc thing
Can I win even if I live in the UK? I've just got into disc golf and am at the beginning of an obsession I don't own any of my own discs yet.
Sure. Why not, you commented. Good luck!
Bunch of wise guys in the comments I see lol
Never thrown a Volt before
I want! 😍
Yo yo yo
Holy shot shaper Conrad
On my birthday 🥳
I want one.
I would appreciate winning this disc, and I appreciate you for offering the chance!
Here, would be dope to win!
Uh, yes please!
Okay sounds like a great idea.
Oh, nice plastic. Yes please
I would love that disc. Thanks for the opportunity.
Lets get bendy
I shall win
Count me in!
Instructions unclear, got my **** stuck in the ceiling fan.
The volt is legitimately my favorite disc. Lost my OG volt in a creek a couple months back. I went home and had multiple whiskeys with tears in my eyes. Went back the next day and searched until I found it. Went home and had multiple triumphant whiskeys.
Chat is going so fast nobody will notice I'm here.
You are a bold one
This guy :)
Here’s my comment
Thanks MVP/Axiom for staying in touch with you customer base and doing these giveaways
Also, please pick me!
Our little girl is growing up with Disc Golf. She points and screams the Jomez jingle, and we call James Conrad “Earsy Tarzan”. She would absolutely cherish this disc. What’s better than a disc on the living room wall, a disc on my daughter’s bedroom wall.
I'll take this one and the one on discord please
I've been throwing Gyro since 2009 and called him winning the Championship when JC signed with MVP. The only JC disc I don't have is The Bendy. I need this.
Hey so kind of you to do this giveaway! This would be an awesome disc to show off. Thank you for the exciting chance!
MVP is awesome! Good luck everyone.
This is amazing. Just got into the sport this summer and bought my first MVP last month, happened to be a Volt!
Generous OP, thanks for adding a bit of hope to my day :-)
Man, I was so excited to see MVP get a good win at Worlds. I love James to death on top of that.
Dude what??? I would love this but what really surprises me is that there are so many comments on here! I had no idea that this many people visited the sub
You’re a generous gu..gir… person
Would love to be able to try an mvp disc. I've only ever thrown an insanity and love it. Probably should force myself to buy an mvp disc next. Love the colors of axiom discs though.
This would help complete my World Championship collection.
Axiom is my favourite brand in DG!
This is awesome. I'm just getting into the sport and those kind of post are a big sign that the community is looking out for each other!
Loved meeting James at Waller park earlier in the year! Go MVP!
Sharpies are a guaranteed way to blow up your inbox.
Gyronaut checking in.
That would be the absolute GEM of my collection. PICK ME!
Yes please!!! Have been a Conrad fanboy and an MVP fanboy since before he made the switch. I was so hyped when he came to MVP. I throw a Conrad Volt as well as Nomads and Envy’s. The Entropy is also one of my favorite discs, and I can’t wait til we get a Conrad signature one!
Now this is an awesome giveaway! Thanks /u/Axiom_Alex !
I would love to!
Signed - An MVP/Axiom/Streamline fanboi
This is a comment. I’m torn because I throw a volt and want a bendy James, but who throws a disc that’s autographed?
Recently bought my 1st few MVP/Axiom discs. They have been caught up in customs for 3 weeks by now, so I still haven't had the chance to hold nor throw them. Custom clearance has been a nightmare..
I'd like a new MVP!
I want to win it so I can put it into my secret Santa box!
This is one of the best moments I have ever watched live in disc golf. Just wow. What an amazing shot James threw and what an amazing catch MVP got when they signed him.
would go well with the conrad nomad ive got ;)
Wtf is disc golf and how do I start
As someone who bags mvp. I love this. Thanks for the giveaway!
I've used MVP since I first started. I bought and still use my second run sand paper bottom Ion from Maple Valley Plastics, pre MVP. My Purple Proton Volt is by far my most versatile disc. Good luck everyone on the raffle, and thanks for the opportunity for the giveaway.
How awesome of you OP- I've never thrown a bolt but I love me some MVP
Thabks for doing this!
Prettiest disc on the market!
Yes. Yes I do
I'd like to win but if not that's cool too
So cool. Thanks!
That is dope
Blue discs fly farther.
I want to win. Ty OP
Wow, the blue is sick. I've only got orange and white so far
Dude! I really want to get this for a friend who recently had to have a brain tumor removed. JC is his favorite player.
This is fake. Just look at his comment history
User name checks out too
How so? I’m too lazy to browse his comments
Not fake at all. I might make some snarky comments but why would someone bullshit about that? I assume the winner is randomly drawn, I was just providing some context as to what I would do with the disc.
I would like to see what comment I made that would make you think this is fake though.
This is the one
I hate that I have to say this but you know how the world is sometimes but if this is the truth you deserve this so much and also a real life award for looking out for the homie. No disrespect is ment here just you know how shitty some people can be. I hope your friend is doing well and hopefully will get and enjoy this disc.
I get it. It is the truth. I actually tried to get a Conrad autograph a few months back to give away for our disc golf boys weekend to no avail. But with the recent news about my friend, even if I don't get it I am going to try and find a different means. My wife and I put a care package together for him over the weekend that I have yet to ship or drive down to deliver. He and I have been friends since High School.
Awesome I hope this works out for you and if I end up winning I would love to help get this to your friend. Good luck to you in this and to the friend for all they have been through. Gotta love this sport.
Got that young birthday luck on my side!
This a very cool thing to do.
The bendy James. Love these discs.
That’s the funniest stamp I’ve ever seen. I’d love to have it
Well this is exciting!
Holy Disc Golf Jesus. Yes please!
I like volts! I like free stuff!!
Ooooo me please!!
Sweet disc. Any plans to do more runs with that stamp?
Beer me that disc
That’s awesome, I’m in!
He signed some discs for me at USDGC, thankful he hung around to do so.
yeah sure why not
This would be pretty sick to add to my collection! Started earlier this year and have a volt of my own which I love dearly!!
Wow I would love that!
This would be awesome to win!
Here? There. Everywhere!
Lmao James Conrad stamp do be looking good. :D
I want to win!
Why yes I do!
Ooooo so blue
Hi yes I'd like to enter one (1) comment plz
