Yes I thought about the Matrix... played the plasma Axis today.... A couple real good shots and a couple that missed the tunnel by a few feet... definitely a viable contender against the Tangents but nowhere near Comet country... more like a sweet Buzzz or a decent Axis but six months of wear and it should be about right... it's closer to sweet than my 5 year old occasionally used eclipse. It's close enough to play it unlike the eclipse.

Today, I went a couple towns over that has a larger disc golf pro shop. I raffled through their special disc section until I found a Circuit stamped Relay @167g. It is peach instead of my normal whites, purples and pinks, but it flew nice. Well worth the $20 price tag than the normal $18.

I also picked up a 174g Relativity. Dang, those things are flippy! Whilst I don't have the arm speed to throw them properly in calm winds, we were having high 20s mph winds today.... turn and burn baby! I think this disc is going to be trade bait...it also has a Circuit stamp.

Lick his eye it's more disgusting and uncomfortably intimate. Haha

Yeah I could see Elmex liking the Matrix... I used to be a huge Buzzz guy if there was a 170 Axis... mmm close but yeah. The Tangent is Buzzz broken in awesome 25' shorter and the axis is Buzzz +25' but you gotta power it up to love it.. And there isn't the cycling awesomeness but a sweet broken in Axis is almost Comet glide with moderate broken in Buzzz stability.. Axis is sweet when beat!!!!

I got no problem swapping my Buzzz for an Axis but.... The Vertex, Theory, or Tangent can't touch the Comet glide.. Vertex was closest for me for handling but dropped too fast downhill.. Fission 165 Axis.. Just f@@@ing make it already.

As a Wasp thrower, there is no way Elmex would like the Matrix. It is closer to a slower Buzzz than a Wasp. Really, it is a Roc/Buzzz hybrid, but not a Wasp/Roc3 replacment.

I think the Axis is very very close to a Buzzz. I'd go so far as to call it a Buzzz clone. (Like Scorsese said, steal from the best.)

I was into CryZtal Buzzzes, which was annoying because I try to avoid limited run discs. Proton, once it gets beat up some/dirt rubbed into it, is fairly close, feel-wise. I switched to the Axis (I really prefer it in Eclipse for whatever reasons) and never missed a beat. That's really what got me to sign on to the Gyronaut program.

Is there anything, anywhere, like the Comet? I'm not sure there is. What would even be the closest Gyro? Theory, maybe?

Theory isn't even close. No glide and much harder dump. An Ion or a Relay is closer to the Comet than the Theory.

This is no gyro Comet, don't bother looking.
