The Axiom Virus is an understable distance driver. The Virus is Axiom’s easiest to throw distance driver. In addition, it has a glide and responsive understability that keeps it airborne. Power throwers are able to flex huge turnover shots with straight forward fade. However, average throwers will be able to extend and shape lines using the disc’s turn and gentle fade. Compared to the MVP lineup, the Virus resembles a worn-in Impulse.
The Virus’ defining characteristic flight is a steady turnover tendency with forward fade. Skilled throwers use this to their advantage. However, lower powered throwers gain more distance. Power throwers will find the Virus useful in tail winds and for long hyzerflip to turn over shots. However, powered down and standstill shots benefit from the low speeds required for a straight Virus flight. Height can be manipulated with the Virus for high flexing distance lines, or low ceiling shots at smoother throwing speeds. The Virus’ handling of low powered throws as well as clean high power throws makes it a useful complement to more stable drivers like the Insanity and Wrath.
