Default Gyro Bag

This is the next installment in my set of manufacturer specific bags (See also, Lat/DD/WS).

I'm not new to the MVP/Axiom brands, but I haven't been following much of their recent history. So I'm not overly familiar with the drivers in particular.

For reference, here is my primary bag.

The Bag

Grip L-Series (for now, may get a Nucleus to house this lineup)

Putters
  • Electron Ion (x2) *
  • Neutron Ion
  • Eclipse Anode

Mids
  • Neutron Tangent
  • Neutron Axis
  • Proton Vector (FR)

Fairway Drivers
  • 1776 Ed Inspire
  • Neutron Switch
  • Neutron Servo

Distance Drivers
  • Neutron Inertia
  • Neutron Wave*
  • Fission Tesla*
  • Neutron Wrath

* sitting in the mailbox right now. No experience yet.

Not seeing any Axiom in there besides the Inspire. They don't really fit anywhere against what you throw, but you'd be doing yourself a huge disservice if you didn't give the following molds a shot (because I have thrown/throw them...)

Axiom Envy - Rhyno with glide
Axiom Proxy - Just straight and fast
Axiom Crave - Very TeeBird-ish

Throwing TeeBirds over Eagles, I would definitely say the Crave is more your speed over the Servo. If the Switch doesn't float your boat, I would look at the Relay. They're easier to turn and don't have near the fade the Switch does. You may wind up liking the Inspire though and won't need the Relay.

I also see that you picked up all of their early, rounded core molds (Ion, Anode, Axis, and Vector). I struggled with these because of my baby hands. I would actually look at the Envy and Proxy in place of the mids if you find you don't like the deeper rims. They're classified as putters, but they'll handle all the power you can give them and will fly very far. I know you throw Aviars and P2s which are deeper than I prefer so you may like the "roundeds" just fine.

Couple of things -

DO NOT throw the E Ions, seriously. $8 DX Aviars from Academy are more durable.

You potentially will want a flippier fairway than the Inspire, which would be the Relay.

Also, snag a Theory. It's as awesome as advertised.

There's also a Wrath!

I do love my Teebirds, I may have to put the Crave high on the next-to-try list.

I've had those four molds in my collection for a long time. The Axis and Vector are okay, but I never really clicked with them.

The E Ions are going to be for putting only. So I'm not too concerned about the durability. I don't have enough throws on the Inspire to get a good feel for where it lies yet. My bigger concern right now is that I don't have enough on the overstable side of the spectrum.

I agree that you need more beef, and the Fireball is a great option. It's Firebird-like, that is, workable overstability. It also serves my average arm better than the shorter Resistor, which was a staple in my bag for a good while. You really can't go wrong with either one, and could probably bag both, using the Resistor in a more OS mid/fairway tweener role, which it excels at.

Wish I had more money and time to throw more MVP stuff. One day maybe. For now the envy is the only thing I occasionally bag from that company.

Whoever said that electron ions aren'the durable then I must of gotten a good one. I putt strictly with soft electron ions, and I love them

Yes, Electron is an excellent putting plastic. Great grip and chain grabbing goodness.
