I Love my N-Ion, 173g

They putt the same as the old ones, but slightly more stable on drives.

I would assume he was out on an especially cold day and the plastic got brittle. One good rip into that tree and it split.

Who knows. Maybe Throwasurge will tell us the story.

I could take a pic but it's nothing too interesting, just a 4" split in the flightplate, it's the same one I took a gouge out of. It was a little chilly but above 7 C, it's my primary driving Ion 3yrs old, so it's taken a lot of abuse, top domed in perfect and a bit yellow (from the white), to be fair I might have left it in my practice basket for a couple weeks this summer.

Does a neutron Axis fly like one that`s broken in nicely?

A question about the progression of the Axis mold since the first run...

I have a nice green one (FR) and a after a while I bought another Proton Axis since the FR seemed to be wearing in.

My question is regarding the mold, not the flight. The lip of the first run Axis seems deeper and, to me, more comfortable in the hand. I can't really explain it, but the latter run Axis I bought afterwards seems more shallow, and I just don't like the feel of it.

Did they make the rim more shallow to resemble most mids (like the low-profile Buzzz)? And if anyone else has noticed this, does the Neutron Axis have that same, shallow feel?

I mean, that FR green Axis is just money, as you all know. But I want the stability of a Neutron Axis without the discomfort I found in the latter run Protons.

I'm holding a FR clear Proton Axis, and a flat blue Neutron Axis in my hands. If you want to hyper-analyze the two, the bead seems less than a half a millimeter bigger on the FR. And the Neutron is a little flatter. That's it.

For all intents and purposes, they are the same disc. I haven't thrown this FR in a long while, so I can't comment on its flight, but both discs feel the same in my hand.

They have changed the mold somewhat since the first runs, my new eclipse axis is different from my old FR axis, the PLH seems tiny bit higher and the shape of the under-wing is a tiny bit different, i dont have them in from of me right now, but i think thats what i noticed mostly when i compared them.

The mold is the same they are perfecting their process.

Sorry to ask a question that has prob been answered here, but I can only read so many pages.......

What (if any) is the flight differences in a proton axis vs a nutron axis vs eclipse axis?

Currently i only have a proton and eclipse. I use the eclipse more bc it seems to hold the line i throw it on better.. (Straighter) Of course i do like the color better too... Lol


Thanks all!

The Axis was designed as a flat/very mild dome mold. FRs are always a little screwy, not good to compare to subsequent runs anyway. Comfortability is all about what you are used to, so get used to the newer Axis! Seriously though, they aren't that much different.
