Default Single disc (excluding putting) rounds for practice, which MVP disc to choose?

I'm going to start this year with only one disc, possibly excluding putting, in order to develop my technique and consistency. I own all MVP discs except Vector, and then some drivers from other manufacturers (Flick, Sidewinder). So I'm wondering what would be best choice as learning tool?

I'm pondering between Ion, Tangent and Axis. I have successfully used Axis in few one disc rounds, and that would be nice disc in terms of line shaping. Some people compare Tangent to Comet which is often said to be ultimate technique repair disc. That would be understable, so it would maybe show my OAT flaws more easily than Axis? Ion would be good in sense that I could use it also for putting, so I could really use just one disc. I'm currently putt with P2 (I don't like P2 for driving though), but poorly, so changing putter wouldn't be a big issue.

Tangent to fix form

Axis for universal use

I can throw the axis a tad further than my tangents and they handle a little wind better, I do one disc rounds with both and think either are sick to use exclusively.

Angles might be better to learn on a tangy?

What these guys have said. Tangent. It's not too understable and can be thrown on a multitude of lines. It also works fairly well as a putter but putting is more about finding the right mold that works best for you in that specific role. Putting should have an more an emphasis on building confidence more than which mold you choose. I would go with a Tangent(s) and a putter that you are comfortable with.

Axis. Gives a little more D than the Tangent, covers a ton of lines and will still show form flaws.

Agreed, Tangent is most logical choice.

For me? Vector all the way. Its more stable finish makes for better hyzer lines than the Axis and its lower hss is better for anhyzer lines especially as it breaks in. The Vector is also surprisingly good at putting, something I found while doing my own one disc rounds. However all this aside you should do this with either the disc you are most comfortabl with, or the disc you want to improve the most with. Which hopefully is a Vector.
