It is a very nice compliment. Once I got my first Fuse good and broken in I added a new Fuse hoping to compliment it. Unfortunately the new Fuse flew on the exact same lines, just from a flatter release and wasn't any more reliable in the wind. The Axis is the disc I wanted the new Fuse to be...Really straight and line holding, but not touchy and really wind resistant for a neutral disc.


Sounds perfect. I have a spot for two of these suckers in the bag right now.

I can't wait until they make a fairway driver. An Ion is to the Wizard...what a (insert future MVP FD) is to the Gazelle would be nice (;))

"ION is to Wizard as MVP FD is to TeeBird/Eagle" would be even better.

Can't argue with that, and its probably even more desirable for most.

I'd rather see them work top down, like Legacy. Speed 15 pleez!

This thing sure seems interesting. I'm eager to get my hands on one. I don't know if I should test it at all, because if it's as lovely to me as it is for discspeed it'd mean I'd have to rework my bag, and I'm just getting used to it and love it as it is. MAYBE I could just put it in and make it compliment the Pain and the Comet.

The gram/€ price of the disc goes too high when ordering overseas for my tastes, at least with my current economic situation. Otherwise I'd be on em already.

Just ordered mine. I'm looking forward to knocking the core out of the bag for good...


Edit: Scratch that, Blake just called and told me they only had 179's. I guess I will be waiting just a little bit longer. +1 though on GGGT's customer service. Top notch.

Just another reminder...FRs will all be 177-180. They will run some lighter ones in the second run.

Any idea how long till the second run?

How do they change the weights of the disc? Is the core piece the same in all weights? Or does the core piece change and the rim is the same?

Hard to say when as there are several determining factors involved for that. Seeing how the First Runs go is one determining factor.

Many of our manufacturing processes/procedures are proprietary information, so I'm unfortunately not allowed to give details on too much.

Well, without divulging specific processes...the reason I asked is because I wanted to know if a lighter Axis, say 160g, would still have strong gyroscopic properties. If the core piece is the same weight, that would lead me to think the gyro properties would be lesser. Or maybe you have a percentage to keep the properties the same, or close, no matter what the weight is...hmmm...

Without giving specifics, our core is always much lighter (in terms of specific gravity) compared to our overmold. This means no matter what weight all our discs are gyroscopic.
