no way in hell the vector is longer than an axis... ur missing out IMO not throwing an axis as a vector has a ton more low speed fade than an axis specially powered down.

to each their own but vector is not longer than an axis

But carrying an Axis means not carrying a Buzzz.. That's difficult.

lol well if that's the case then yeah I can understand and feel like the axis is more similar to the stalker in feel and flight.

A beat vector will fly as far as an axis, and with more wind resistance and less touchy

nope. I find vectors to even get more turn and still fade out where axis is more of a line holding disc and forward fade is much stronger. yes a worn neutron vector is similar to a new axis at some power levels but if you mash on a axis vs a vector the axis will fly an easy 50' further with the same turn as a vector due to less low speed fade. we can talk about it all day but im not on crack and thrown these discs in fields, on courses and with other people whom I have given them to with similar results. at 300' and under power axis and vector are very similar but 400+ there is some good difference.

you guys must have some super beat vectors then I guess...? my FR and domey proton are not even close to a seasoned neutron axis although my neutron flat vector has a similar flight it still fades out harder. How far are you guys throwing vectors vs axis?

For me I can throw the vectors 330 -340. Axis maybe the same, but I can't rip into it the same. My n vector is 7-8/10 175 and super flat the axis is fresh. I would also agree that the axis is farther, but I can't mash it the same at all. So I'd trade ten feet for accuracy.

My eclipse vector is a different animal. More dome 180. It's more stable and sounds like your experience with the vector.

yeah I understand that then^ just gave someone a n. axis for their flat n. vector for that same reason, as I wanted a little more stability apart from my tangents which the N. vector fills very well and still have a hard time bagging axis with it being kind of a tweener disc and power down my volts normally to get a 330' similar flight.

I must have one screwed up Vector because the 2 throws I threw it to try it out in the field were incredible meathooks. I mean leaving my hand and turning 90 degrees landing 100 ft out. Made my Drone go "Da'yam!"

After those to throws, threw it in my overstock pile and never looked at it again. I'd trade it if someone wants it. Pink/red.
