I think they have found a good little niche in the market with their putting/mid discs, and thats a good thing for MVP.
^ this. Axis and Vector are a bit close to each other in stability...at least the ones I've got. Over time the Axis has lost just a bit but the current run Vector just really isn't as overstable as I'd hoped. I don't think making it in soft would improve that as much as a mold tweak would. If they did both, I'd hop on it. I can't see the Axis benefiting from softer plastic.

I would like to see the overmold a bit softer, if they could use a material that was still as durable as the current material.

I really hope that they start putting out mids in a softer blend. Winter or not, their mid plastic is some of the stiffest, slickest plastic I've ever held. The Vector and Axis never really had a chance due to this, despite me really wanting to like them.

I don't get why people complain about the stiffness/floppiness of a disc. If it works it works.

Exactly why it needs to be.
