I will admit though since they are all unique its more rare to find a REALLY cool color/design combo so I do get why some of them would go for 30-35$ Part of that is being able to choose exactly the color and look you want. I was able to snag a few on release day and of course I wanted to coolest looking ones. Now the ones remaining are more generic, bland, or not best colors. So I get why the market works that way. But folks trying to sell them for 50+ is insane. but whatever I guess. I have 4 coming to my door, I hope they work out like I plan - a stable, OS control driver in nice grippy but durable plastic. But, PM discs are sweet haha so I kinda get it.

No offense taken.

Honestly, I thought about saying they were different but noticed that the actual measurements of the physical disc were the same and decided to go with what I said. As others have pointed out, the weight is so minuscule that it may be safe enough to say they are exactly alike in every matter of measurement, unless I missed something.

I agree. If I sell them it's usually 10 bucks over what I paid. Takes care of my time to go buy them. Certainly not trying to get rich.

Im comparing the vulture and the Anax right now. Im shocked at the amount of dome on this Anax. Hand feel of the rim seems the same. Stacked up, each seem to be about same diameter. Not sure if I like the idea of this pop top, though

My favorite vulture is a test flight, and it's by far more overstable than my other 3. (1 ledgestone Z, 2 esp). I rely on it heavily for control forehands, and full rip backhands, wind doesn't matter. I can't find another so I was originally hoping this could be the replacement.

Have you tested it enough to confirm if its a good replacement? I have a Glow Z Vulture and its my favorite but I don't use it since its hard to replace. I hope to give a full review on the Anax in a week or so when I get time to work with them.

Just a visual comparison, so far. Have not thrown the Anax. The vultures I've thrown for a few months

I just got mine in the mail, and it's even prettier than the pic showed on MSt, I should've grabbed another to throw, but I'm not too enthusiastic about the dome, but it feels good in the hand. I guess the Vulture and Avenger I bought will have to do for the OS FW thrower for now.

So how's the glide on this thing? On infinites video they had it as a 6 glide which makes it more than the comet. And I find that hard to believe.

In my head (because I havent thrown one yet) the anax looks like a longer wasp in flight. Overstable but workable, glidey but controllable.

In my head, it looks like a Volts flight . I can see that, the Volt has stood out pretty unique in the crowded field of OS speed 8-9 drivers.

Love the Volt in Electron but they get chewed up easier than any disc.
