So if you only ever tried hyzer releases with it you may of thought it was too overstable for your needs.

Either way what do you want to trade them for?
I think the main reason they are not for me is that I had a very specific slot and role to fill. I was looking for a mid I could drive relatively flat, maybe a little hyzer but definitely not a hyzer bomb, and have little to no turn with a solid finish without fading so hard that it would not land flat. I needed all of this while also having near-fairway distance that I can power up, beat the wind, and not worry about the problems you have to overcome when you under power a fairway driver.

There is nothing wrong with the Vector, again it was just not for me.

Sounds like you just described what everyone has been saying about beat in vectors.

This is what I'm finding...but it takes quite a bit of abuse to beat them in a bit....mine is finally to the point of flying like a new Roc. I like this though, because I can go to a new Vector to get that bit of overstability, yet still workable.

But it does depend on what you want, in smarkquart's defense...I played several rounds of wooded, rocky, tough terrain to help make my Vector "happy." It would take a long time on more open, grassy courses, I imagine.

I'm curious to see how much turn a Vector can develop...

I must admit, after seeing Discspeed's posts about his beat in Vector, I have started "Dropping" it on concrete teepads while waiting to tee off, as well as "accidently" throwing it into trees.

Honestly, I prefer the Axis. Mine is fairly beat in and is currently my all purpose driver. The other discs in my bag are getting jealous.

im looking forward to new vector/truly beat vector, new axis/truly beat axis. my vector is more beat then my axis but i probably wont need to add a 2nd of either til it gets warm again (i play a lot less in the cold). loving what my vector is doing and cant wait for it to be more beat. axis is the same thing kinda but still has some significant fade unless crushed or torqued, so its still far from beat. my home course has i guess 4/27 open holes so trees are plentiful...just a matter of time before winters over and my axis is abused
