    Axiom Virus Review

    The Virus is a beginner-friendly fairway driver built for lower-power players. This is one of the best discs we have in stock for learning controlled straight shots and long-panning turnovers. More experienced players can use the Virus' understability to lay down easy roller lines. This Axiom Virus review covers one of our most understable discs for sale. 

    Axiom Virus Plastics

    • Neutron: The "flagship" blend, this premium plastic is durable with some flex. Discs fly truest to their flight numbers in Neutron. 
    • Proton: Stiff and extremely durable, this blend has a translucent look and is similar to Innova Champion or Discraft Z. Discs fly a bit more overstable in Proton and will maintain original flight patterns for years.

    Axiom Virus Flight Numbers

    • Speed: 9
    • Glide: 5
    • Turn: -3.5
    • Fade: 1

    With a healthy -3.5 turn and minimal fade, the Virus is the most understable disc in the Axiom lineup. Across the MVP family of discs, only the Orbital has a higher turn rating (-4.5). It doesn't take much speed or spin to get the Virus to flip to flat and drift to the anhyzer side. This makes it a great shot-shaper for beginners and intermediate-level players. \

    However, once it makes the turn, the Virus does not have the low-speed fade to reliably finish on hyzer. This finesse disc carves up tight lines and finishes with little horizontal movement. It will get knocked around in windy conditions and be very touchy at higher speeds. 

    Dimensions

    • Diameter: 21.1cm
    • Height: 1.4cm
    • Rim Depth: 1.1cm
    • Rim Width: 1.85cm

    While Axiom labels the Virus as a distance driver, these dimensions are closer to a speedy fairway driver. In short, this disc is a hybrid, and offers good control with a speed boost. The 1.85cm rim is easy to grip for players of all sizes, and the shallow rim and low profile only enhance the comfortable and aerodynamic hand feel. 

    History

    Released in 2014, the Virus was part of Axiom's first wave of drivers. Many of these initial molds were discontinued, but the Virus has maintained popularity as a great option for beginners, juniors, and low-power players. It is an excellent introduction to the MVP/Axiom brand's patented "gyro" technology.  

    Skill Level Recommendations

    • Novice: The best beginner driver in Axiom's lineup. A potential all-around workhorse for new players. 
    • Intermediate: A reliable understable complimentary disc with some distance upside. 
    • Advanced: Utility driver primarily used for rollers and severe turnovers.  
    • Pro: Elite arms need more stability and predictability than the Virus can provide.
