I will be very curious to see how the Axis beats it...true, it holds an anny out of the box and has a slight turn on a good rip. I'm starting to think new Vector, beat-in Vector, newish Axis, beat-in Axis as a do-all line up.

Of course, at the number of rounds I play and very durable plastic, this may not come true for months...

If they beat in at a rate similar to the IONs (and I'd expect them to last longer, the discs, especially the bead, are much sturdier), you can change that to years.

I find that the new Ions and the other MVP discs start off a little more overstable than they are after a month or two of use. I don't think it takes much wear to let the gyro start dominating the flight a bit more. I've thrown the heck out of my first Axis already, and I have identical backups that have not hit anything and they are noticeably more overstable. Once they break in that first little bit though it is very slow going from there.

I can't decide if I want to put away my Pink one for a while to see if it becomes more valuable or beat it up to hopefully get rid of some stability.

I love the pink color, and got lucky that my wife even let me spend the money to buy an Axis. So I'm doing what i can to make it tolerable and have a slot in my bag

got my 180 uv blue axis today. holy crap! During leagues i forced myself to throw it at a point where I would usually reach for my buzzz (i didnt bust it out until hole 10) and I wish I took the plunge earlier.

I threw it hard and flat.. it went straight as f*ck and had a very gentle fade to the left.

next round that I play i will leave the buzzz at home.

After reading this thread for the past week, I finally got my Axis' in! Got 8 of them, so I'll get out to a field tomorrow and see what all the hypes about.

I can't decide if I want to grab one of these heavy ones now or hold out for a lighter one once available. I usually like to throw 167-170 for most discs but there are a few exceptions in my bag right now. I don't have a big arm and fear that 180 will be like throwing a brick.
