Question Hey MVP, Why no soft mids?

Just courious as why they havent released any Axis or Vectors in soft. Both seem to be very popular on this site which means ppl would buy it to test it. It would also compete with discrafts FLX market. Just a random thought.

I was just focusing on the molds they have released already, but I agree a type of driver would be the next step up. Fairway type would be my guess. It would compete with the Teebird/Stalker markets...and from what MVP has produced so far, it would be a dang good disc.

I can't see an advantage to soft plastic in either one except maybe for winter grip. If the Vector were a bit more overstable than it is, then I might be interested in a soft version of that.

I like FLX, so I think a soft Axis would be cool!

The soft anodes and ions are more LSS and HSS, so I would assume a soft vector would be beefy.

None of my Soft Ions are more stable than the Med ones but there all 2nd runs.

The soft versions of what they're running now aren't all that soft anyway, they just have some nice, gummy flex to them. Of course I want an Axis or Vector in this plastic.

the new soft plastic from MVP is not up to the standards of their older discs. both of my S anodes had warped flight plates and It is not due to shipping. One was bad enough the the disc flew considerably under stable compared to others.

What I want MVP to do is bring back the opaque plastics. They were much better than the candy colors.

I would buy at least 2 opaque Axis's
