Do you guys have any plans to create a fiercely overstable P&A disc in the future? Something that flies similar to a zone or a pig? Or a putter version of the vector? I'm saving the open spot in my bag for this...

I didn't read anywhere that they said no softs?

Edit: found it in the other thread.

The soft Anodes will be put in to production later. They're all Mediums right now.

Ok fellas, a friend in our club and a member here lent me a whole stack of MVP to test drive this week, can't wait to try it all out! Two Ions, two Axes, and a Vector!

Looking forward to testing the Axes, and Vector against my Comet/Wasp combo!

Hopefully you'll like them! The Eclipse vectors fit perfectly between the Axis and Vector.

Without having to wade through nearly 100 pages of stuff, how should I expect the Vector, Axis and Ion to fly as compared a Wasp, Comet and KC Pro Aviar or APX?

Not familiar with DC mids, but from what I've heard the vector isn't quite as OS as the wasp. (also from what i've heard) the comet can be a tiny little bit on the under side of stable? The axis, depending on how flat it is, will have different flights. The domier pink ones have a little more fade and moderate domed ones have a small late fade. Both have 0 turn to them. The super flat ones have a touch of turn to them and very very little amount of fade. They'll hold a hyzer and anhyzer very well. The Ions are my favorite disc from MVP. The late opaque (3rd) run and the current candy (4th) run both have similar flights. Very stable (straight) at high speeds (such as a drive) with a nice predictable fade. They'll hold any line you put them on. Softs are a little more stable than mediums at lower speeds.

Hopefully I answered your request. Any more questions that you have feel free to ask!

Vector: moderately overstable mid, similar to a wasp
Axis: neutral mid, more stable than a comet
Ion: moderately overstable putter, similar to a fresh KC Pro Aviar but more durable

Sounds good! Hopefully I'll get to throw these tomorrow!

The Vector will likely seem faster and more HSS than the Wasp, unless it's a 1st run Vector and then all that plus way more LSS too.

The Axis and Comet are pretty close. The Comet is a bit slower and the Axis can take a bit more power, i.e. you don't need perfect form to launch the Axis on a frozen rope. The Axis really likes straight, you can turn it over or give it enough hyzer to end with fade but it really wants to go straight all the time and finish forward. Comets go/finish where ever you threw them (correctly).

Ions (especially 3rd runs and later) will likely fade more than both, be way more HSS than the APX (and KC Pro unless it's a particularly beefy one), fights annys, and handle wind better. As far as putting goes, the Ion is kind of like the APX in that it can tend to lock onto a line and stay (putt with a little nose up and too much spin with the Ion and you'll see what I'm talking about). The Ion takes a little dialing in to putt with it well as opposed to the Aviar which can be heaved at the basket more as opposed to aiming. The LSS of an Ion is a lot greater than with an APX.
