Yea.. The Axis I feel is just on a whole different level than the Vector. The vector is great for hard hyzers and headwins, but the Axis is just a thing of beauty. It's like a Roc in premium plastic, or a buzz with good glide.. It's just awesome.

I actually prefer my vectors over my axis. Maybe when I go to get some Anodes I'll pick up a flat Eclipse and that may change my mind.

Really? I've always been a fan of overstable plastic because it's usually so much easier to throw, but during all of my field work and practice the Axis is usually a decent bit further than the Vector.. even though I feel like I can put more on the Vector since it's more forgiving.

It's not all about distance. It's about feel and control too.

You consider the Vector more controllable than the Axis? Sure it's harder to flip, but I can do so much more with the Axis than the Vector. The Axis does it all... other than maybe huge meathooks like the Vector.

My flat Eclipse Vector will hold annys just fine. And I did not say it was more controllable, I said I MYSELF have more control with it.

The Axis is very straight/neutral. It wants to hold it's line of release to the end of it's flight. The Axis is slightly faster than the Vector with slightly more glide, so it flies farther with less effort.
I agree with this assessment.

The Axis is a max weight super stiff Glo Buzzz - they fly almost exactly the same to me (and I'm very loyal to my Glo Buzzzes).

The Vector is a Roc that went to school and learned how to fight wind better. It may take more power to throw than your garden variety DX Roc though.

I think I would kill a few of you right now if MVP told me to so that we could get a fairway driver in the area of a Leopard, TL, TB.

I vote that whenever MVP gets time to come out with a new plastic for the core, they should make all the cores either black or white and makes the overmolds different colors.

Vector + hyzer = Drone. I've personally never seen someone put their Drone on a line I couldn't replicate with my Vector, or for that matter same thing with the Zone and Ion. Not everything has to be thrown hard and flat, you can throw it hard and hyzer too and when you do Vectors fade very aggressively. Thrown hard with hyzer they fade early, they fade hard, and there is a lot of lateral movement rather than the forward fade they normally show.
