VERY pleased with the Fireball. Mine is near max weight, and I've been throwing it against a max weight Motion previously owned by MikeC himself. Motion is still more OS than the Fireball. The Fireball is more in my short arm/thick trunk (i.e. low power) wheelhouse. I'll have the review video up sometime tonight.

If you're and above average player, but not near pro level, I would suggest the Fireball over the Motion or even a Firebird. I have to give mine away (watch the video on how to win it...YES it's a dragon stamp!) but I may just order another one from Infinite. Great disc.

Fireball is a sweet disc and one I think was needed in the gyro line up. I'm a Firebird guy and I doubt any disc will ever kick that out of the bag but the Fireball is fun to throw. It doesn't do as much as a Firebird will. I couldn't trust it on low lines or point and shoot shots as much but man it holds a beautiful hyzer. If you like throwing hyzers this is the disc. Smooth release and never really veers off line. Doesn't seem to get caught up and go too far left (RHBH) ever. Nice disc.

As always, I'm looking to condense my bag. Giving thought to replacing my Crush/Firebird combo with an in between like the Fireball. I really like the colors of the Axiom discs and I have always benefited from having a more simple bag. Three questions:

1. Will the Fireball be a good 'in between' of the Crush and Firebird.
2. Is Axiom a Michigan based company like MVP?
3. Does the Fireball produce a good OS skip?

Thanks to anyone that can chime in here.

Everything I needed to know.

Plus, I like the idea of adding another manufacturer to my bag to mix things up even more. I'll have a Prodigy/Discraft/MVP/Axiom/Innova bag. Nice.

The fireball may not skip as well as a Motion, but not by much. I haven't personally thrown one, but played a couple rounds with a guy that uses them a lot. Also the fireball plastic is a little gummy compared to a motion, which may be the reason it doesn't have the same lateral skipping ability. The Motion is stiff and skips like crazy, but is very OS. I carry a 169 Motion to take a little of the beef out of it, so mine is probably similar to a max weight fireball(flight wise).

I was hoping the Fireball would feel like my Resistors. The neutron plastic on my Resistors is very stiff, not gummy at all.

Ordered an awesome looking Fireball this morning so I'll be able to test it next weekend. If it doesn't work out I may give a Motion a try. I really like the Axiom color options so I hope the Fireball is what I'm looking for.
