I bought a black amp and found it to be just a tad bit understable, not nearly what I had expected. But after boiling-watering-down any dome and letting it sit under some books to flatten it out, it behaves almost exactly like it was described.

I'd see if you can reduce any domey-ness first before going out and buying another disc

I know what you mean, I think it's because you expect the Vector to be more stable than it is, so you turn it over, and it burns. I thought it would be good for FH but a Zone or Rhyno is better for me. I decided I don't really have the power for the Vector, 300ft is Axis territory. I carry a 176 Axis as main mid and a 179 Axis in place of Vector. I enjoyed it a lot more new with a stable S flight before it broke in.

Slowly working a lot of classic innova molds out of the bag for some high quality MVP.
My question is, is the axis comparable to a leopard in terms of stability and flight? I've thrown axi'i before and noted that they seem really long for a mid. I also mostly use my Leo for shorter <300 ft. Holes.
Is the axis comparable enough to be a substitute for the leopard?

What's the average distance you guys are getting with the volt?

I wouldn't compare the axis and leopard.. the AMP would be a closer fit. Leo's I have thrown all have a pretty early HSS turn compared to axis or AMP and the axis IMO does not hyzer-flip like a leo does it wants to hold the release angle more and stay on that true flight. I would say the Axis should work fine for holes under 300' but would not really compare it to a leopard because its a mid vs a fairway so that alone makes the discs fly very different-- capable of the same things though for the most part. Leo's will be longer for sure and less friendly to powered down control shots than the "point and shoot" axis.

330+ comfortably. Still working the kinks on those. Teebirds can push 375 though.
Stocked to tug on the new shocks.

Good to know! Thanks for responding. I'll just pull out the Leo for now and give the neutron axis a solid throwing.

360's in the cold seems to be pushing its limits without throwing a more distance style lines, then I have hit the 400 (at BRP flat ground) but didn't feel as controlled as 325-350 range.

yeah it took me some getting used to because I expected it to be a little less stable than it actually was, which ended up being great but just flew different than I had imagined. Its really a good disc for those tight lines and low ceiling shots and long true hyzer/anhyzer shots it just keeps riding the line so well'

I would suggest a volt if you want to try one of their drivers.. It is like a teebird/leopard.

I have all three drivers. Just no major experience throwing the volt/shock. I love my amp for turn overs and hyzer flips.
