I have hard time believing the glide is comet-like before I see it though.

Let me be clear...No disc can now or perhaps ever match the Comet's glide at low speeds. Disc designers would have to put themselves in a 1990s mentality to achieve that. The Axis is low profile and faster than a Roc, so it's not going to look like a Comet in the air. I refuse to compare Fuses/Comets due to the radically different designs and HSS, and when it comes to real specifics it's also hard to compare the Comet and the Axis. I will say that the Axis is closer to a Comet than the Fuse in that it has a true neutral stability and it's easy to turn but hard to flip. The Axis also holds it's altitude on different angles like the Comet and is effortless to get up in the air like a Comet as well. The glide is hard to compare as the Axis is 1-2 steps faster. They probably have a similar range when each are thrown optimally, though I'd give a slight nod to the Axis in all but tailwinds. Due to the similar air-out range and the Axis being faster, logically that suggests the Comet probably still has a slight glide advantage.
Regarding the second quote...The Axis does that shot remarkably well because it holds it's height and does not need an excessive angle to hold a sweeping anny even at low to medium speeds. Again, it is faster and this makes the lines a little different.
