Don't bag either one though and was a buzzz guy for a while. Just find I like a mid which has more defined roles in the bag.

The very heavy FR axis/vectors with gradual dome tend to be on the OS side.
This, except I bag an Alias. Alias will have just a tad bit more turn at high speed and a tad bit less fade... At least how I throw

Disc golf OCD

It's basically the only reason

When my former is good the axis is a thing of beauty. Laser beams. I played a new course the other day for the first time. Hole 13 was a slight downhill shot, probably 270ish with a 6' ceiling around the pin for 20' or so. I was debating taking a wide shot and letting it fade in to the basket. Instead I grabbed my axis and beamed it straight at the basket. It parked about 7' away. It was awesome. Had a couple other good shots with it too.

That made me remember how much I like throwing it. I think the envy has stolen a lot of shots from it.

That's my experience as well. Nicely seasoned buzzz.

...and more than a tad bit less distance. It's in that same hybrid putter-mid class as the Tangent, Theory, and Tensor.

Yep. I can't see comparing an Alias to a Buzzz. Axis is at least in the same conversation.

I've never been into the MVP Mids and am happy to keep throwing Buzzzes. My Volts are irreplaceable in the same manner

The thing about the Buzzz is that it requires a touch less rotational "snap" to get it going. The Axis requires more hip and shoulder rotation to really get the gyro to kick in. I use to throw Buzzes but that was before I had really dialed in on my form. Once I worked on that, the Axis became a workhorse straight as a laser disc for me.
