I think the main reason these FRs are not going that far for people is because they are max weight. I can throw a 160s Ion just about as far as my 179 & 180 Axes if height is not issue and especially if there is favorable wind. I see the heavy Axes kind of drop in the last part of the flight for me, and when I get some a few grams lighter I can see them holding in the air a lot longer at the end of the flight. The heavy Axes are incredibly easy to range though.

The reason I was throwing Ions farther than the Axis is because the Ion could handle a little more anny. And yes, is was max D without height considerations. The Axis is certainly better for low ceilings.

I just want to say that I'm very excited to throw this disc, but I'm quoting this because I'm also very happy to see that the correct plural form of "axis" is being used.
