I have some similar issues with the Vector, but I've lately been working hard with it on fieldwork days. Mines N with mild dome. The bead/dome combo is a problem for me, hence I can't do anything with a standard roc.

I just can't seem to get it out without that early wobble, same with the Roc3, which it reminds me of some.

Obviously that turnover might go away if you magically started releasing the Vector well BUT(!) I recommend a Tensor. It's certainly more overstable than a Vector (as it's supposed to be) but the rim feels very different. It almost feels like a flat 45 degree wedge. Some people hate the feel but I love it and I really think you would not have the same release issues with it. Perhaps a lighter-than-your-Vector Tensor would be a good one to try.

I ended up swapping out my N Vector for a Z Buzzz in the bag because it just feels better in my hand. The Vector and a champ Roc3 I have just aren't getting thrown these days. Axis, Envy, Volt are my bagged MVP discs right now.

No trouble with the Tensor, or any other MVP mid. But I must conquer the Vector or die trying.

I hear you. I couldn't THROW a putter for years (same results you're describing) and then I finally tried a beaded one and I haven't looked back. I wish you luck with the Vector Paul. Your commitment to the mold impresses me

I have prevailed. Just kept throwing it on a hyzer angle until I got the hang of it. Then I was able to throw it flat into the wind. Only problem now is it goes too far.

After putting the axis back in the bag since only carrying a tangent-- I think the vector is going to win the other mid spot back.

It was the first MVP midrange I ever threw and not sure why I stopped. Axis is great but I miss the LSS and flex shot ability of the vector. The speed of the vector makes it great for throwing longer shots off the tee too.

Vector is such a useful disc. It gets alot of playing time in my bag. Never looked back. Probably my favorite mid from MVP.

I love the Vector. Even though I've been going with a KC Roc and a Roc3, the Vector is still in the bag. Mine is laser beam straight with the exact same fade at the end every time. Throws the same every time I throw it.

Threw two beautiful back to back ace runs yesterday in 25MPH left to right crosswind on this 400' downhill hole which the vector rode straight the whole flight until the last 50' or so and faded right at the basket. Hell of a mid this is.
