I would notice more difference in the Buzzz's distance when I threw it hard vs. harder than I do with the Axis. When I give it a smooth 85% it goes just about as far as it's going to go when I rip it 100% on the same line. To get more D it needs more height rather than more muscle.
discspeed wrote:I also had some interesting results with the Axis in different wind directions today...I was throwing a long anny shot with a right to left wind that was slightly from the rear. I first threw my Fuse, which in normal conditions is much less stable than my Axis. Due to the wind it did not flip as much as I intended from it's slight anhyzer release, rather it just kind of pushed straight on it's angle and dropped. I threw the Axis the same way and it held it's slight anny line much truer rather than getting pushed by the wind and faded out later as well.

This is why it doesn't work for me. I put all my power into a hit point I am aiming at. The axis does weird things when I do that. The way it spins just doesn't work for someone throwing with high power all the time. It is great for developing players or those at the 350-400ft level. I had to throw at about 65% to see the flight I expected(which can be good).
If you don't like your Axis/ION I could take them off your hands. =)JR wrote:I had a windy round and a half after work today and the Axis didn't work that well, which in seaside area makes it a situational disc Clear Ion worked better in every other wind direction except headwinds, where both got raped. The Ion was way better in winds compared to older Ions.
Fightingthetide wrote:It seems pretty clear that the Axis isn't a do-it-all neutral mid, but still an excellent one nonetheless. That's all fine and good, but when you guys are saying that you can't put all of your power into the Axis, how much power are you talking? If I get about 250' of power on my Buzzz on a solid drive, would the Axis be sufficient enough to drop my Buzzz altogether? I guess the only way to tell is to actually buy one, but all of my local shops are sold out (and I need to give it a few weeks before I spend any more $$$ on discs )
