Default Axiom more beginner/intermediate friendly?

MVP/Axiom kind of lost me with all the new discs, can't keep up.

Took the time to check out Axiom on inBounds tonight, and i have to say they all look very appealing to an intermediate player.

I've always felt MVP marketed their discs to players with loads more power than me: Amp understable? Not in my universe. Tangent is the only MVP I've tried that actually turned.

Are Axiom discs for lower power players? Casual players? Was that their purpose?

It may appear that way but its just because they haven't made any DD's yet. Or a very OS mold in the other classes.

They are just starting to build the brand, just like MVP did before them. Besides, they already have the Envy, (nice and stable), and the Crave and Clash (which can useful to both beginner and pro).

How far are you throwing? If you can't turn an Amp I'd stay away from everything faster than their speed 7 fairway drivers.

The best beginner discs from MVP / Axiom are the Anode, Theory, Switch, Inspire & Amp in my opinion. I'd look into a mid 160's Switch if you want a driver you can turn without breaking 300'.

^ Don't forget an Inertia. Especially a light one.

'Not turning an Amp' may not be the best indicator. I lost an older one that had nice predictable turn even to just 300. The two I've picked up to replace it are pretty close in flight to the 'new' Volt out to 350. Of 2 newish Amps and 2 newish Volts (all N,) only one of the Volts has a very little of that -1 HS wiggle like a fresh Servo. Neither of the Amps are so far showing any inclination toward flippage, but aren't at that broken in stage yet.

Yeah, this actually. For my money, the flight one gets from the Inertia is a pretty good indicator of where you're at power-wise w/r/t MVP/Axiom

I find the Inertia and the Tangent the easiest to throw and those are my favorites. The Inspire also flies straight without a lot of power but the FD has that spot locked for me.
