I love the Vector. Mine is severely broken in and goes dead straight with significant fade. It was an Ace and about 4 metal hits on it. It is my go-to Spike Hyzer disc for shots up to 180 ft.

If you have a chance compare the two. Flatter Vectors fade less and fade later, domey is the opposite. That might play a part.

Unless you had a mis-stamped Axis as a Vector, I have ZERO explanation for you...that's just plain odd.

Yeah, my experience as well. I got a green first run with zero dome, it was like pro d zone flat, almost concave. Got it to fill the overstable midrange role in my bag and it just didn't do it. I really like the disc and the flight but it was too close to my buzzzes so I scored a z drone (kc worlds version). My vector just went straight for so long and then faded out, but I hear the domey ones are straight up meat hooks.

That's crazy about the dome adding overstability compared to flat. It must be true since you guys are seeing that but it goes against physics. I haven't seen two Vectors with a noticeably different flightplate but I look forward to experimenting if I can find a couple varying shapes to throw.

Not the best video in the world but right here you can see me throw two flat vectors followed by a domey, and the last one you can see it starts fading sooner and harder.

Here's another FR Vector drive

And a worn FR Vector drive, you can see a pretty beefy fade at the end

I'm going to have to look for a FR vector or two to get again so I can compare them to my production run I have now and my Eclipse™. When I got my first first run it was super beefy. So much at I didn't like it. That could have been my weak arm at the time too.

Domey Vectors don't defy any laws of physics. The ones I've seen have an oddly shaped dome (so much so that one of them was the last MVP disc left on the shelf at Fairway Flyerz) that almost comes to a peak in the middle of the disc like a tent or a rounded off cone. It has to have a larger effect on the shape and flight properties of the disc. I have a FLX Drone with a somewhat similar flight plate that is the most overstable Drone ever....

I am not going to tell you that the Vector is my favorite mid ever and replacing my Buzzzzzsss, but I did throw my glow Vector on hole 25 at CSUMB (2011 Pro Worlds course) and it went in for an eagle 2 on a 680 foot hole with significant cross winds coming from the ocean, so that disc deserves some recognition.
