Aa a person who struggles with OAT I can tell you the Vector is a good disc to get if you want to work on eliminating OAT. It is sesnitve enough that you know when you are applying OAT, but such a teue flighy path you know when you've got it right. However if you are looking for a disc that works well with an OATY throwimg style then the vector will come off as squirrelly.

That must be it. My technique sucks, not the disc. Thanks

You guys are making me want to break out my old FR Vector. I took it out because of the crazy skip and now use a Tensor.

i haven't been getting too much skip out of my vector - at least not that i can see since i really only use it for straight to fade or hyzer lines. i got more skip out of my tensor for the round i gave it a chance.

i dunno. *shrug*

i will say that the vector has secured its spot in my bag; i love just being able to walk up to holes and say "this is a hole for disc x". my midari used to be that disc, as well as my point and shoot long upshot/drive disc. the vector can't replace it in the upshot capacity just yet, but it certainly has earned its keep as a good replacement overall.

i did have a slightly errant drive where i saw that "line lock" you guys are talking about, though. it was kind of cool looking. i had some definite wobble on my release; then all of a sudden it stopped and just locked on to the hyzer line i initially wanted after it lost some speed, so it crashed a little harder. still wound up on the fairway, but it was interesting to watch, like it had some homing device in it, haha.

^^Just the opposite for me.
*dunno, shrugs*
The Tensor sits pretty good for me. But I must say that the wooded courses I play here in the South tend to have alot of leaf/pine needle duff. I'm thinking that's why my Vector skips so much...?

There's a lot of pine needle cover on some of the courses i play, i dont get bigger skips with the vector than any other disc, just depends how you throw it.


I do want to say how much im enjoying my BEAT eclipse vector though! this thing is so beat that i can lock it into a dead straight line and it wont turn and has almost no LSS fade anymore!! its awesome.. similar to a fresh eclipse tangent only much longer and easier to power up 100%. When cranked real hard (350'+) and low it has a tiny amount of turn but not really turn, it just floats right a little bit. For how straight it is with the HSS makes it a kill switch whenever i need a trusty reliable long straight drive

i dont have the biggest arm, i hit 360 370 on a good day in the field. Had the vector in n and eclipse in the field tonight. The neutron id rate at 8/10 is dead nuts straight almost no fade now. the eclipse was the same for 80% bit the fade kicks in and it landed about 20 feet left and 15 short of the neutrons for me. I am loving the vector, but here is the strange part for me it may not fit anymore because its too long. I need to work on it more but i am having issues ranging it lately. I have developed a ton more snap this summer so i am revisiting molds. this vector is some mid. more time needed. sorry for the rant.
