On a note completely unrelated to disc golf, I think the names of these discs are funny. I used to manage Verizon stores, and before the smartphones really took off, there were two competing phones that I was selling a lot of. The LG EnV, and the Samsung Alias, and now MVP is making an Alias and an Envy, just thought it was kind of funny.

The Alias sure sounds a lot like an Axis in terms of how it's supposed to fly. Is Axiom just a way to keep Innova at bay with the Atlas/Nova and the garish color schemes they enable?

I'm an MVP fan and I have to say the Envy is the one I'd be most interested in since I can't drive with my Anode because it's too deep.

Interesting marketing, too. Different website and deviating from the traditional naming scheme. I'd like to know the thinking behind that. Both of those names, frankly, sound kind of lame to me.

I like the way that Envy looks. No love for the Alias tho, its new too?....haters.

So is the axiom just refering to the new color rims? or is there something more besides that.

I do think the Envy will be interesting.

Please, for the sake of all of us MVP fans, can you please dial it back a bit. When you're not so amped up your posts are fine. Lets not let another MVP thread degrade into senseless bickering.
Quoted for truth, even though you might as well have saved your breath. I love my MVP discs, but I can see how some of the more vocal MVP "advocates" turn others off to the company. All I can say is that I hope people will judge the discs on their own merits.

I wore my ion out, and ended up switching my bag to all trilogy. A huge reason for this is the nonsense these forums turns into whenever mvp is involved...like Ghandi said about Jesus, the mvp discs seemed nice, but the mvp fanboys ruined them for me.

Now, I just reordered a new ion, a skulboy volt, and an axis. It sucks that I can't come here to learn about/chat about mvp without a bunch of ape brained jerks getting into non-disc-related measuring contests.

For me, the discs are great, these forums are not so much anymore.

I don't know if it's the forums so much as it's the fact that the MVP fanboys are SO easy to troll! They jump all over anything negative that's said, and treat skepticism about unreleased products as if someone had said something awful about their wives or children. With that said there are a few guys who jump into these threads just to stir the pot, and it would be nice if they'd give it a rest as well. Oh well, I guess that's just the interwebz these days!

Oh, and to stay on topic: Personally I'm not really loving Axiom. I know full well that at some point my heart will overcome my head, and I'll buy a disc in the wrong weight because it's blue/orange or orange/blue. Now, this isn't Axiom's problem, but the simplicity of the color scheme was one thing I love about MVP as opposed to Innova's goofy looking overmolds.
