i haven't been getting too much skip out of my vector - at least not that i can see since i really only use it for straight to fade or hyzer lines. i got more skip out of my tensor for the round i gave it a chance.
i dunno. *shrug*
i will say that the vector has secured its spot in my bag; i love just being able to walk up to holes and say "this is a hole for disc x". my midari used to be that disc, as well as my point and shoot long upshot/drive disc. the vector can't replace it in the upshot capacity just yet, but it certainly has earned its keep as a good replacement overall.
i did have a slightly errant drive where i saw that "line lock" you guys are talking about, though. it was kind of cool looking. i had some definite wobble on my release; then all of a sudden it stopped and just locked on to the hyzer line i initially wanted after it lost some speed, so it crashed a little harder. still wound up on the fairway, but it was interesting to watch, like it had some homing device in it, haha.
