So..I'm thinking of taking my axis out of the bag and going back to my esp buzzz's. I just can't throw the axis near as consistent or far as my buzzz. I love the volt,tangent,ion and anodes I just seem to always turn over my axis or throw a worm burner. I throw a black 175g neutron if that makes a difference. Comments?
My 176 N Axis flies almost exactly like a Buzzz...It is yellow/green and flat. Perhaps yours is a freak?

I threw a heavy 10th buzz and ti buzz against my Axis and I did find the Buzz had more fade. My Axis was going dead straight though, not turning. For me its just a Buzz with less fade for the most part.


Also I'm testing a new MVP disc right now. Sparkle Proton too.

My axis throws more like the flat buzzz ss I had. Slow initial turn right then straight a long way before a small fade back. I have a neutron coming this week. The snow is finally melting so hopefully I will get a chance to compare the two very soon.

Try giving your axis a little more height. I'm also contemplating taking the Axis out of my bag for the same reasons that you've described, but my best throws have come when I give it a little more height than I normally would (~15ft?). If you keep the nose down it will stay relatively straight and it stays in the air much longer than if I try to laser beam it.

The only time an Axis will turn and burn is when you impart OAT on the throw.

The same is true for all stable discs.

Throw them with good form, straight and true, and they'll fly the same way.

Not a Drone clone. It's too small. Maybe more of a Zone.

true but faster also.. I can see it being more similar flying to a trident or XXX than a zone or drone to be honest if it is a beefy vector like flight with a true 0 HSS (and maybe coming in SPARKLE proton per MikeC's "testing" message )

Did anyone else catch this???? I thought they would stick with neutron till the line up was complete or was I misinformed? This should be way cool!!!!

I really dig the proton plastic!
