Awesome! That type of hyzer shot is becoming my favorite shot with the Axis. It holds the line so well.

Well done Mike.

Excuse me if this has been asked before...

If I'm not mistaken, MVP's discs carry most of their weight in the rim. So does this mean that heavier discs have more potential to spin when thrown? If so, does this equate to more turn at the beginning of the throw? ie more understable?

No. From what I have read/heard the faster the disc is spinning the more stable it will be. I could be totally off base though.

The higher the mass moment of inertia is, the more stable the spinning object will be. You are not off base.

Also, when I'm saying more stable I don't mean more overstable. In terms of disc flight, it should mean a straighter flight.

Right. I should have said gyroscopically stable.

Yeah it is true IMO MVP discs don't turn over at high speeds like other similar molds/speeds would and actually easier to throw longer anhyzers or line shaping shots at lower speeds vs trying to crush a hyzer flip to turn over they end up going straight where all other discs typically turn over to the point of no return, MVP's hold the lines. (the axis especially and ION/Anodes just become laser beams)

Two pretty Volt park jobs, a 2nd run Shock chain out and an Axis ace!
