Well thanks for all the input everyone. I've come to the decision to just try it out and see how I like it.

I think I will since I wasn't completely in love with my Buzzz in the first place (even though I did throw it A LOT).

Just ordered a Light Green 175. I'll let everyone know what I think after I throw it around for a bit.

Stick with the Buzzz. I bought an Axis. I didn't think it would replace the Buzzz and I was right. The disc just feels weird. I love my Buzzz though. Just picked up a ESP Flx and Ti in the past week. I love MVP though. I'm a big fan of the Anode and Vector. Axis and Ion just aren't my discs.. I have both but just don't like them.

All my vectors have had the flight characteristics of slightly more overstable Wasps, or like really meaty Rocs.

It's certainly worth it to try an Axis and see how it flies for you. For the many of us who throw mids in that similar flight range (Buzzz, SS, Axis, MD2, Core, etc.) it's heavily a preference issue as opposed to one being significantly "better" than the others. I feel like I could use any one of those and still accomplish what I wanted to, but currently prefer the Axis, followed by the Buzzz, and then the rest of them.
gcr and I experience the same thing with the axis and vector. The axis took the buzzz out of my bag, and the vector took the wasp out. I will say that my eclipse axis is more understable than even my FR green axis, but not much at all.

Just add a ton of glide to your Buzzz and you have an Axis.

Man, I just don't know about this. Axis seems like a touchier, can't handle as much power, doesn't want to stay in the air Buzzz. I must have gotten a crappy one.

I've compared over 12 different Buzzes and Axis' to one another. The biggest difference I found is the Axis glides straight a little longer. They're very similar but I'd say the Buzz has a hair less glide and a bit more bite to its fade, with the Axis having a slight distance advantage due to the more forward penetrating fade and enhanced glide.

I have no idea why anyone would compare either disc to the flight of a comet. Threw the Comet in 3 different plastics and none of them flew remotely like a Buzz or Axis for me.

I feel like Mike summed up my thoughts as well. I have an axis and the only reason I throw the buzzz instead is that there are more plastic options. I can throw a hard, gummy, grippy, or slick buzz among other options, but with the axis there are just three plastics and two of them are very similar.
