Good idea, but doubtful. The Axis and Vector wall is nothing like that of the Anode and Ion. Yes, it's slightly curved at the top, unlike all other mids, but it's just at the top so it's not a 90* wall. Definitely shouldn't be putting it nose down.

Am I not snapping these puppies hard enough, or is there some trick to unlocking the MVP magic?

I had two throws like that today with my Vector. I thought I just had bad throws and didn't think anything of it until I read this comment.

Sounds like a spin issue...If you give the MVP mids arm instead of spin they don't get the lift to hold in the air. Sometimes this happens to me as well when I get a little out of practice(especially with my Axis). It makes me concentrate on my snap, which is never a bad thing.

Yeah, I know I tend to strongarm things a bit, so hopefully the Vector will help me correct that a bit and it will translate to my other discs, too.

Well it was worth a shot. Not everyone knows what OAT is or when they were doing it.

I had OAT issues with MVP discs when I first started throwing them, so I thought there was a chance maybe you were having the same or similar issue

No worries, I appreciate the insight. It's always something to keep an eye out for.

Thanks for the tip. I've been meaning to get out and work on my form, so this is gonna be my motivation

Took the Vector out to the local nine-holer and really concentrated on putting more snap on my drives. It definitely worked, and I didn't have any more straight into the ground throws. Thanks for the advice.

One observation: this thing is fast, much faster than my Pains. It's gonna take a little getting used to.

I just picked up the new Neutron Axis and Vector.. 1 of each. (orange axis, blue vector) super pumped to throw them. Now all we need is the volt.. I hope it comes in both plastics. Both are equally great!

Yeah, it's practically a FW driver compared to Pains, lol.
