The Fuse is slower than the Meteor, so it actually powers down better. If that's not your experience then you probably just never got really comfortable with the Fuse, or the Fuse you had was more stable than the Meteor. The Meteor is a niche disc, speed and glidewise comparing to fairway drivers. Meteors also have more LSS than the Fuse. Either way I think the Axis is going to be a more HSS disc than either of those two.
Also, putts inside the circle are all in your head. I'm pretty sure it was something between you and the Ion and not the Ion itself. Many of us know how great a putter putter it is.
Also, though I know you probably meant somehow better for you, I'm going to be a smartass now and say that the Ridge NEVER flies better than an Ion because the Ridge doesn't really fly...It just pushes through the air.
