Alright, so I throw a seasoned flx buzz 172g probably 6-7/10. Will an axis fly as straight? I can get the buzz out 230' almost completely straight.

The Axis was born to go straight. Flat ones will be easier to turn over than a Buzzz b/c they're pretty close to being neutral in stability.

I'd be willing to bet that the Axis won't fly as straight or as far for you as your beat Buzz does now. It's still a good disc, but it won't turn or fly super straight until you can push mids a bit further. If your form isn't clean, then the Axis can burn on you when you put power into it. You won't hate the Axis, but sounds like it won't give you what you want right now. A heavier opto Core would, though, and it would stretch your distance over the Buzz most likely.

Wasn't hard to do. They only had one disc out at the time IIRC. Think I carried about 3 or 4 of them at the time. Why so many of the same disc? There was this disc eating creek where I played.

How far are we talkin here? Since the beginning of this season I've only been throwing putter and mid rounds in hopes of pushing plastic further.
