Yea, the fade is pretty slight, but it's there...at least on mine.

I had a green first run that I threw in the drink.

Maybe I still have a slight bit of OAT to work out of my form then. My axis is the only disc that shows it if it is OAT.

Yea, I was doing some field work with two fresh 173 Axes. I had some OAT on a few throws, and both of the discs even did a very slight S back from the turn. I was actually surprised. Maybe I got a couple that are a bit more overstable?

Is the secret to it really all in the smooth pull and making sure you aren't tweaking it a little anny instead of flat?
The issue isn't how hard you're throwing it, the Axis can take a max power throw. If you oat it some I could see it wanting to turn and not come back. Even my first runs abd more worn Axis that have a touch of high speed turn, if I give them a tiny bit of hyzer and a max power throw they just go dead straight. Fresher Axis I rip hard and flat and its straight 95% of the flight then slight fade.

Yeah I was pretty sure it was mostly my OAT because the Axis really likes to flutter if you don't release it clean.

Neutron Anode.. The best putter I have ever used. It was like magic!

Like the feel, but haven't had a chance to throw the neutron Anode yet. Hopeing it will make the bag.
Electron plastic.. That sounds awesome. That would be cool for a baseline plastic. My Neutron Anode's immediately replaced my Proton Anode's.

When will we see Neutron Axis and Vectors?

I cant believe we don't have the Volt yet... they installed the new hardware weeks ago.

It means Off Axis Torque, which is essentially any force that you are imparting not along the plane of the disc. Imagine rolling a bicycle tire down the street. If you don't push it perfectly straight, it will wobble as it rolls along. This is why sometimes discs wobble in the air. It is a good indicator that some Off Axis Torque is being induced.

That is probably one of the best ways I've heard OAT explained Ryan, I'll be using that if you don't mind.
