I also find the FR softies to be more OS...? At least, they're less likely to roll over on me...maybe they're just a bit more forgiving.

Right now I have one FR and a new one that's labelled "soft." Hard to tell how they compare since the old one is fairly scuffed up.
The first softs run after the Ion mold was retooled are what you are referring to I believe. I have a green one (original Ion stamp, smooth bottom) and it's definitely one of my most overstable softs.

I just got my first Vector in the mail today a 175g stormtrooper, It seems REALLY flat, so that means it's not gonna be to overstable? will it be closer to my slightly domey black axis of the same weight?

And just for reference can someone post a picture of what is considered super flat,slight dome, and super domey? I only have 1 of each so it's hard to compare.

Just throw it.. i have a board flat vector that has high PLH and its real overstable, most OS vector i own.. fights wind like a champ too.

Its PLH more than anything

Cool, thanks for the info...

I've got about 10 Ions at this point, including new unthrown Neutron and new Soft Proton. Hopefully today I'll get out of the office early enough to go air them out.

I really try to avoid getting hooked on OOP or limited run discs. Hopefully this won't be one of those deals.

The slight dome on the Vector(s)...

Are we talking about very slight, and comes to a point in the center, like a nip?

If you're reply to me..It was my axis that has a slight dome and my vector that is super flat. The vector actually has dimple in the middle, while the slightly domed axis has a bit of a nip.

My Neutron Vector has a slight dome and comes to a point in the center. I would not call it overstable at all, but it always fades on a clean throw. It flies very similar to my Neutron Axis, but on lower lines. I.E. if I give my Axis more height it will fly similarly to the Vector where as normally it has a tendency to finish straight.

On my limited experience throwing my new vector (about 10 throws on a cold and windy soccer field just now) I would tend to agree. I found that fortunately my axis and vector don't overlap as much as I was worried they might.
