Soft mids...not really interested. Medium is working wonders for me.

I would buy at least 2 opaque Axis's
It's the same plastic, just different colorants. Unless MVP has stated otherwise recently.

If I could throw soft mids I'd be all for it...But everytime I try to throw a softer mid, they just rip waayyyyy right.

But if there's a demand for them, they should definitely produce them.

If they made both the Axis and Vector in soft, and both molds ended up being more stable in the soft plastic, I'd be all over them!! Not to mention they would have less bounce off trees when I shank some drives into them

I'd be all over a more stable vector. The axis in medium is working like a dream right now.

They may say it is the same but it is different IMO. my 3rd run white ion is much softer than my 4th run orange candy ion. The opaque plastic was void of the flight-plate rippling that has been an issue with the newer soft plastic discs.

^^^ This is what is so nice about the soft ion I have. Compared to my crystal challenger....the soft ion has a much better feel to it.

I also agree that the med axis and vectors I have throw really well and are great discs. Just think soft mids are great for wooded coruses like the ones I have to play on.

I would Rather see a "true" overstable mid(Drone-Gator-Hornet). Making a soft Vector/Axis will not achieve that. A softer plastic may be better for colder days, but i would like see MVP produce an OS mid before jumping up into FD's and DD's. I think they have found a good little niche in the market with their putting/mid discs, and thats a good thing for MVP.

The candy plastic in the Anodes seems to scuff more than the candy Ions. Has anyone else noticed this?
