My new run blank 177 Axis is a bit of a different animal from the others I have...It is much more Buzzz-like as it feels flat and lower shouldered than the FRs. I'm loving it, throwing it hard on whatever angle I want it to fly. It is feeling a whole lot like my 2FR Buzzzes were when new. It seems a little faster than my other Axis as well. Today I parked a 340' tunnel hole by throwing it high and turned over, which it held very gradually and then faded gradually. I threw it pretty hard and there was no high speed turn, it just held the slight angle I gave it. This is exactly how I used to do it with my Buzzzes, but until today I'd never gotten an Axis quite on that line. I noticed most of the new runs we just got at CDGS feel like this. I think I'm going to be trading in some of my backup FRs in favor of these newer ones.

Is the eclipse Axis any different flight or feel wise?

Other then the first runs the flight is consistent from eclipse to proton.

I bought my Axis yesterday and threw it 10-15 times.. It's good. I can't see it replacing my Buzzz because of Grip.. I need to try it more once the snow is gone.. Axis vs. Vector competition is growing to be my 2nd night disc.. I have an Ion and am only looking to carry 2 discs.

So i got 2 first runs and I really like them more than the 2 newer runs that I have. I seem to be able to get the same lines that I was getting with my Buzzz.

Hit nubs, chains, then out with an Axis off the tee no more than 40 minutes ago.

Youre suppose to throw it IN the basket. Silly.

I have been throwing rocs for a very long time, but picked up a vector a while back because, why not, right?
I will say this, the vector flies like a freshly stable roc but better. Which is why I took it out of the bag, I want to put it back in the bag, but i still have a stack of rocs at the house.

Ok, I now have 3 axis. A FR orange, FR green, and a 179g green eclipse. They are all different. I have also thrown a FR pink and it was different than all the rest. I have posted about my FRs before, but here they are again.

FR Domey Pink (I threw this when it was new)-a hint of turn at high speeds and had a decent amount of fade as it slowed.
FR Flat Green-a hint of turn at high speeds like the pink, and no fade at all. As it is getting beat, it is getting just a bit more turn.
FR Orange-no turn at high speeds, and a decent fade as it slows. Get the nose up and it will stall and fade pretty hard.
Eclipse Green-really understable, almost gl fuse like. It flies the furthest because it can be hyzer-flipped the most. I was really surprised at how much it turned the first time I threw it. I am glad I had my FRs with me to be sure that it wasn't me and that the disc was really that understable.

Having all of these be different makes me wonder how the production protons fly.
