Yeah, the Anode is really more neutral than US...but the other difference is the rim underside/gripping areas. Envy's a totally different feel than the Anode/Ion core.

An Amp in the 170's should be pretty close to what you're looking for. Max wt might be best. My pretty beat 'old Volt' had very slightly more HS and LSS than my kind of beat Amp.

I think those early Shocks/Volts that had turn weren't molded that way as such, but cooled a certain way to have more rounded shoulders and lower PLHs than intended. At least, that's the venom on...

Current Amps = early Volts.
Current Volts will beat to almost straight, give it time. Better that way, than to start slightly US and beat into a flippier Beast.

I think the Buzz vs. Axis thing really comes down to the plastic/weight. I feel like they're pretty similar molds. For me anyway, an E Axis, especially newer, can take as much if not more power...

Also, though, I'd think, the better the player, the more able to manipulate discs @ diffrent stabilities.

For me it's almost too OS for a go-to (I deal with woods much more than wind,) which means it's seasoned slowly. If you throw yours more, it'll season up faster. All it seems to do as it wears is...

The bottom line is, this isn't figure skating, and there's no box on the scorecard for 'artistic impression.'

You're under no obligation to practice anything if you don't want to.
