I vowed I wouldn't be buying or trying ANY discs for some time - I went on a rampage this past year and ordered way too many discs - well, I went through the stash and determined, yep, I have more than enough. backups of backups....etc....im set. BUT....dangit I want to try an Axis haha. It seems very Buzzz-like. I use an Alias and a Matrix right now. I'd assume this wouldn't be something to add to that but rather something to replace one of those?

Anyone have a great Axis story? Other than being destroyed by the Allies. ---Axiom needs a mid called the Ally

I'm a staunch Axis man. (It is very Buzzz-like. I switched to it from Cryztal Buzzzs, which were hard to find.) It can replace both the Alias and Matrix. I had a Matrix from a circuit event, and it started beating in and losing HSS too quickly, so I baled on it, but it's a great disc.

The Axis is just a hair faster than the Alias, iirc. I didn't really care for the Alias after just a couple of throws, for whatever reason.

In CLT, it's all woods golf, all the time, and I throw the Axis a LOT. Eclipse is $$ in those situations where it's getting late, kind of dusky, and you kick off into the woods. I can almost always see it from the fairway. It "glows" in the late daylight, lol. I swear.

I won't 100% swear to this, but I feel like in Ecl, it retains HSS marginally better than, say, N, over time. That could be, like placebo effect though.

edit: even the name is perfect, because it is basically the disc around which the rest of my bag revolves.

I hate you ----because I really want one now. haha next time im at a store or have store credit or league $ ill look at those. haha, But yeah I love the Alias, SOOOOOOOO straight, but I have 6 of them and 2 of them don't feel as great (domey too firm plastic) so I think it depends on the ALIAS you get, I have 3 that are GLORIOUS and 1 that's just fine, and 2 that are just ok. I found a Matrix that's 177g and DEAD FLAT and it flies superb, so.....idk, lord knows I don't NEED any new discs, but if I get anything it'll be an axis.

I think that in terms of flight, there's not a ton of difference between the Axis and Alias. The Axis just felt natural in my hand from the start, because it (frankly) has a very similar profile to the Buzzz.

This actually reminds me...the Ecl Axis in my bag, I pulled out a couple of weeks ago to distract my kid with something...and I still don't know where it is. Haha, i'm like 99% sure it didn't leave the house, but I've done a couple of cursory sweeps of the premises, and so far, no dice.

I need to turn the place upside down....

But, mostly, I probably need to order a couple backups, since I'm likely getting ready to start playing more again since the spawn is older now.

Note to self: next time you want to distract your kid, go dig out that POS blizzard Boss you got in a players pack once, that has a double dome that looks like a 1/2 popped thing of Jiffy Pop.

Yeah I recently re ignited my love for the Axis.. Good glide.. I LOVE my firstrun that's been nicely broken in.. I haven't clicked with the eclipse one I have it needs a dirty beating before its baggable. I haven't thrown the Alias but the Axis is an amazing glider and line holder.

Has anyone thrown the plasma or has anyone seen the plasma is in a standard release other than the circuit stamps

Plasma Axis I have is a Circuit series one. I have not seen a stock stamp on this one. Plasma flies like a beat in Axis. The Axis was my first MVP disc and it really is a fantastic disc. I prefer it in Neutron. The one I bag is board flat. The Plasma can hold similar lines but I find it has too much turn off the shelf. If I do bag it, it might replace my Tangent for similar US lines. I do like the Axis though.

Thanks man, is it 178-179g ? I definitely don't want to replace the Tangents right now.. But that sounds real tempting.

I thought so too, until I lost mine in this exact same scenario.


AND I'M STILL VERY ANGRY ABOUT IT.

(That was a great disc)

178g. I like my Tangent as well. That is why I just have the Neutron Axis and sometimes I bag a heavy Sparkle Proton if I need one with a bit less HSS and more LSS. My Neutron is seasoned to perfection though -- it only took 6 years.
