Never thrown one before but I'd say they're kind of similar, except the Axis is faster and will remain straight at higher speeds where I've seen Mako's show turn past 250' (But then again the person throwing it didn't have the best form in the world)

Nice! 380' wow It gives me an idea of what it could do! Straight with gentle fade at end?

Threw it pretty flat and it flew about 20-25' high and 15' to the right of the pin, glided forward 95% of the flight then curved right for the basket. It was real pretty...I had put that same Axis under the basket on that hole last round I played.

The Axis is faster and has more stability than the Mako. Because of this you can shape sharper shots with the Mako and hit tighter corners. You can't really turn the Axis as well because it wants to stay straight.

On the other hand the Axis is far superior when it comes to hitting tight gaps because it holds straighter lines so well at variable speeds.

Yeah, since I throw mainly FH I use the Axis a lot for left landing shots because it holds any line especially when thrown with some torque!

yeah the axis can do some sweet things with a tiny bit of intentional OAT at times. used that twice today actually, solid drive on a right turn par 4 for birdie and a gradual right tight tunnel drive for easy par on a real tough 3. didnt happen to throw it much today but when i did i was happy...im 99% sure buzzz's are officially gonzo. some other nice shots but ill just talk about the use of intentional torque with them..

Check this out. Was looking at my Axis closely to see if a basket had damaged it when I noticed there seems to be a microbead on the top part of the overmold.
