Ive done eclipse rims but color was lighter. I think white axiom rims have been done just cant find the picture right now.

Vector is big bead large diameter so it has that style of OS flight if you're familar with OS rocs (comet OS lol) etc which dont love oat but fly far as hell and very responsive to angles. I like the vector but dont use it a ton anymore. Slight dome are the $ OS ones.

First run domey Vectors were great OS Roc-like discs.

The rim does dye quite well! Trick is finding a true all white disc. Seems a lot have an off-white rim.

I find the matrix to fly like a faster axiom alias, or a fresh eclipse axis. Thrown flat and hard will display a -1 turn and with enough room or height, you will notice a fade respectable to an ion.
I throw my mids sparingly these days, but I have played several 2 disc rounds with my matrix and ion. I typically throw my mids about chest level on tight, wooded fairways which limits the fade. I have been able to shape the matrix on anhyzers and it fades very well on a 45* hyzer line. I made a comparison video of the MVP mid lineup last year in the link below, but I probably need to update it since it was wet, rainy, and throwing on slick grass.

I think the biggest difference will be your preference on how the discs feel in your hand.

Buy both, do some field work, sell the one you don't want on here or the MVP Facebook buy and sell page. They are both very fun to throw.

The Vector flies like a shorter Roc3 while a brand spanking new Matrix flies like I would think a Comet OS would. Problem is, the soft plastic on the Matrix wears out of its sweet spot within two weeks of throwing it.

^ this.

Also, this could be taken care of if they would release the Matrix in the old school firm plastics. Then it would not flex out into a flippy shape.

Would you guys consider Tensor a "more overstable Vector" my proton vector is straight with very little fade and I would like to have something that fades more from MVP/Axiom.

If heavier weight the tensor will be OS but it is different from vector being beadless and smaller diameter. Something about the tensor I dont love but it could work for what you're looking for. A domey vector will be the most OS vector as well (same with most/all of the MVP or Axiom mids)
