Exclamation MVP Axis vs MVP Vector

Which of the two do you prefer, if you use either?
I myself only have an Axis at the moment and I love it! It glides great and can hold any line I put it on. I am anxiously awaiting the day I can try out a vector.

I have both discs and by far the Axis is better for those longer straight as hell shots. I'm VERY impressed with the Axis and you're right it stays on the line you put in on. Which can be good and bad at times but mostly for the good. You really have to rip the Vector to get it to stay straight unlike the Axis. I see the Vector as a disc I will use only in certain situations where I need it to fade more at the end. Axis is probably the straightest flying disc I've ever thrown that glides perfectly where you release it at.

Definitely could have been asked in the Axis, Vector, or General MVP thread. Vector is more like a KCP Roc whereas the Axis is more like a X Buzzz.

This is exactly the thread I was hoping for, believe it or not. For those who have one, how much turn does an Axis have, as opposed to, say, a Z Buzzz? Also, in terms of fade, is the Axis or Vector more similar to a Z Buzzz? I'm looking into getting an MVP mid, but I don't want to end up getting one if I know it won't be able to compete with my Buzzz.

Heavy slight dome Axis will be probably the most like a Z Buzzz. Vectors are definitely more stable than a Z Buzzz.

get both and try it out with your Buzz. No need to be super loyal to a disc. I stopped throwing my rocs in favor of the axis and the vector.

An axis should have zero turn and minimal fade out of the box. The vector is a little more stable than a brand new roc
