This^. If the diameter of the bead on the disc is 2mils larger than what you are used to, you would never know the difference, as the plastic expands and contracts more than that in different climates. You'd need a pretty fancy pair of calipers to even detect the variance.

As much as I enjoy throwing the Axis, the Vector is still my go-to midrange. They just lock onto a line so tightly and are so predictable. I've been pretty obsessed with my Eclipse Vector lately as it is so straight and Buzzz-like, yet has a little slower turn and fade movement. If I could only carry a single midrange, it would be that disc.

Currently I'm carrying that Eclipse Vector, a beat domey FR, and a newish domey FR. The beat FR flies like a max weight Comet stability-wise, with a bit more speed and less glide. The other FR is still pretty piggish for wind and hard hyzers. I'm rounding these out with a single Axis for shots that need understable movement.

My beat up current run vector is nuts straight. I'm looking for opinions here. How much over stability will the vector lose as I punish it this summer? What do you predict it will stabilize into. If my vector stays straight like it is for awhile I'm ordering a stack of them because the thing is just awesome!

Vectors are beautiful. I am still debating on a FR or Current run Vector.. I need some help. I'm looking 2 carry 2 vector's. One that can really fight a good wind and one that I can put a hyzer on and the thing will just fly beautifully. Im thinking with the Hyzer I want a current run.. Would a 177g FR Vector be able to fight a strong wind?

My 179g red eclipse vector is plenty overstable. I like the flight and the way it feels in my hand. I throw it a whole lot on more open courses. I still prefer the axis in the woods, but if there is any headwind, then the vector comes out. Great disc.

It is funny to hear the comments after I throw it. I got a couple of people to "WHOA!" in amazement as I threw it in a tourney last weekend after they heard it whistle out of my hand and travel on a perfect low hyzer right at the basket. The cool part is, my partners in that 3-man scramble also threw a vector on the same hole (325' into a headwind) and all 3 of them were sitting within 20' of the basket.

I hope mine continues to whistle as I use it. It is pretty cool to hear.

Just get a current run. It sometimes takes a while to find FRs. Took me almost 2 months.

I found some FRs.. I'm not concerned about finding them. I just don't got a lot of extra money so don't wanna buy something I'll regret getting later.

Define what a good wind is with numbers. Vectors are decent in medium winds (say, 15mph) if you have clean form, and depending on the wind direction. Throwing it on a clean hyzer will handle a bit more wind, to a degree...again, depending on the direction. If you want a strong windfighter, other discs will do much better and there are tons to choose from. A disc that is overstable when thrown flat will be your best bet for true wind needs and will be more reliable with wind from any direction except a tailwind which will tend to slam them down earlier unless you adjust the throw, but then you may as well pick a different disc.

Predator is my Headwind Driver.. The Vector would be for shorter holes. I'm thinking just a 179g or 180g Vector along with a 175g Vector should cover everything I want.
