I'm glad I'm not the only one waiting for a lighter Axis to put it against some other molds. Going to have a Core in my regular weight to go against the heavier Axis and the heavier Axis might still win out from what I saw this last weekend. Haven't thrown a Core for a while though.

I'm with ya. I want to try one but at those weights I need to hit the gym first! The two Ibex testers I got both scaled at 181 & it feels like I'm throwing a brick

Played two rounds this morning with just using my Axis and an Ion. Love the Axis so far, I was throwing a Crystal Z Buzzz before but the Axis is straighter with less fade for me and seems more consistent. Pretty much about the same distance but the Axis can get there on a lower line then the Buzzz. Came pretty close to hitting an ace on a big hyzer over trees on a 280ft hole.

I think the Vector/Axis/Fuse combo will be perfect unless MVP comes out with an understable Mid.

Brand new to the forum, but this thread convinced me to order an axis from discgolfcenter. I'm excited to give it a shot.

Thats what I was expecting the 179 Axis to feel like, but it really didn't. Feels pretty good actually and there is a good chance the heavy sticks around even after acquiring some lighter ones.

If they are going to do the understable mid, I would love to know about it. I already intend to let go of my heavier Opto Fuses as the Axis takes care of what they were doing, but I would rather not use that to build up my GL Fuses stock if I think MVP might get them a push out of the bag.

I am a fan of the overmolding and a believer in what it does for the weight distribution. I am also a fan at was appears to be a complete lack of seem on the plastic; let alone flash; which seems to make these discs good to go out of the box. That being said; unseating my Fuse would be a hell of a task as it is the ultimate touch disc IMO.

Man the Axis holds a long, gradual, and low anhyzer like nobody's business...I parked a hole today that I used to either throw a driver on or accept a 30-40' putt after using my Fuse/Buzzz. The Axis just holds it's altitude so well when flying turned over, and it never fades out of it.

I also put my broken in Vector back in the bag because the Axis doesn't overlap with it at all.
