My relationship with the Axis is so complicated. I've thrown some beautiful shots when I've gotten it just right, but I've also had many shots that just drop out of the air.
It's so strange because I threw the Buzz for so long and the Axis is a very similar shape. Something about the thickness of the wing and the angle of the shoulder gives my grip fits resulting in inconsistent releases. It sucks because I really want to love this disc and I have experienced many of the wonderful things it does, but it fails in my hands too often.

Luckily I have no such issues with the Vector. Ironically the Vector is boring in comparison, trading tight S curves and glidey hyzers for the frozen ropes of the Axis. I just get more consistent snap and spin on the Vector. I've come to appreciate it's more forgiving nature along the way.
