What is the Best MVP/Axiom Mid-Range?

Updated: Jan 24, 2023

You've done some research and have decided that you really like the idea of MVP's Gyro, overmold technology, and are trying to build your bag with as many MVP/Axiom mid-ranges as possible.

MVP makes some great discs, so we cannot blame you at all!

The only thing standing in your way now is that you aren't quite sure which mid-ranges you want to add from them as there are so many great options.

Which is why we're here to help you pick not only the most popular, but the best discs to choose from when building your bag.

Once you browse our list, we suggest picking out at least one disc from each category of stable, overstable, and understable, so that you can be prepared for any situation you may be faced with when out on the course.

Whether you need a long, mid-range turnover shot, a straight shot with no fade, or a hard hyzer shot, choosing one of each category will cover just about any possibility.

If you're stuck between a disc or 2, it absolutely doesn't hurt to grab both and figure out for yourself which one you like more and which one you'll find more useful.

If you already have some mid-ranges picked out, but don't have any putters, you may want to check out our

So if you're looking to find discs for a complete MVP bag, then we have you covered!

So, back to the question at hand:

What are the best MVP mid-range discs?

Well without further ado, let's find out and get into our list!

Simply click on any of the names or pictures to shop the disc you're interested in at

Flight Ratings: 5, 5, -1, 1

Up first on our list is the wildly popular Axiom Hex!

Every player new and old needs a dependable, straight flying mid-range in their bag. So much so that nearly every manufacturer on the market has their version of this style disc and the Hex fits that bill For Axiom/MVP!

The Hex replaces the previously popular and now discontinued MVP Axis in the Axiom/MVP lineup, and quickly became a fan favorite thereafter. The neutral stability benefits new players extremely well, but is naturally useful for players of all skill levels due to it’s ability to hold any line that it is put on.

The speed and glide of 5 and 5, in addition to its turn and fade of -1/1 make it a classic neutral flyer that will rival the likes of the Discraft Buzzz, Innova Mako3, and the Dynamic Discs Truth.

It’s popularity grew even more with signing of Simon Lizotte to team MVP as the Hex became his very first signature disc.

Once these discs are able to be restocked, be sure to grab one when you get the opportunity and try out how great it is for yourself!

Flight Ratings: 5, 5, -0.5, 1.5

If you like the look of the Hex but think you may want an option with just a touch less turn and a touch more fade, then it sounds like you are in need of the Reactor!

On the surface, the Reactor looks somewhat overstable, but this great mid-range is surprisingly straight flying and is touted by players for its ability to hold any and all lines as the fade of 1.5 will simply prevent this disc from turning over a little better than the Hex might.

You can expect some more subtle fade just at the tail end of the Reactor’s flight, but otherwise this disc will be able to tolerate slightly higher speeds while still falling into the category of very controllable, stable discs.

If you need another option for a straight flying mid-range, don't count out the Reactor!

Flight Ratings: 5, 4, 0, 4

Once you find your true straight flyer, it's time to find yourself an overstable meat hook, and the Deflector is that disc.

The name Deflector is appropriate as this overstable work horse with a Fade of 4 will be highly efficient in moderate to high winds of all directions, will be very straight flying in head winds, will preform well for a variety of flex shots, and can also be used as a reliable forehand approach disc.

There are many times when playing a round of disc golf where a hyzer or flex shot is needed, and the stability of this disc will be the perfect option for you in those situations.

The Speed of 5 and Glide of 4 is on par with most mid-ranges in the market and will fly accordingly while still being controllable by all players.

Other options on our list our overstable, but few will have the overstability offered by the Deflector, so try it and bag it today!

Flight Ratings: 5, 4, -1, 2

Number 4 on the list brings us to the Matrix, a fairly stable option that is going to offer a bit more fade than some of the other straight flyers on our list.

If the situation calls for more hyzer or fade, too much for a true straight flyer but not as much as what you'll get with a very overstable mid-range, then this is the mid-range for you.

The Matrix will perform well in slight headwinds, and is also stable enough to really be cranked on if needed while still achieving a very straight overall flight path.

All in all, this popular mid-range may be the most versatile on our list, and is definitely one that you should consider adding to your bag!

Next up is the 2nd of 3 discs on our list from Axiom, the Pyro!

The Pyro is one of the more overstable discs on our list coming in with a Fade of 2.5.

This stability will perform well in high headwind situations by providing the perfect amount of overstability without being a meat hook like the Deflector.

The Pyro will shine on hyzer lines for approach shots and will also excel at getting out of tough situations due to its ability to be used for flex shots.

If you need a forehand or backhand approach disc that will extend the reach of your approach putters, then you need to get yourself a Pyro!

Flight Ratings: 5, 5, -3, 0.5

While the Pyro is one of our more overstable discs on the list, “upnext” is the MVP Uplink, the first understable option on our list of most popular mid-ranges from MVP/Axiom.

An understable mid-range I feel is a must bag disc for players of any skill level, and the Uplink would be an excellent choice to fill that slot.

New players will appreciate the favorable turn/fade ratings of -3/0.5 to maximize distance with slower arm speed, while more advanced players will love using this option for hyzer flips and uphill shots to maximize distance in those scenarios.

I personally use my understable mid-range for short range uphill shots as well as mid-range long turnover shots the my putter can’t quite reach.

If you're looking for an understable mid-range option from MVP/Axiom, the Theory is your answer!

Speaking of understable discs, we finish our list out with the 3rd and final Axiom disc on our list and the most understable of them all, the Paradox.

While being more understable with a turn of -4 and a fade of 0 compared to the Uplink’s -3/0.5 ratings, the Axiom Paradox also differs in that it offers less glide with a rating of just 4 while maintaining a speed of 5.

It features everything I like about an understable mid-range as outlined when discussing the Uplink, but achieves it all with just a touch more understability.

Nonetheless, if you really need that understability to help increase your distance or to get you up and down a hole in a variety of tee off and scramble situations, then the Paradox is an understable option to help you do so!

So check it out today!

And that concludes our list of the best MVP/Axiom Mid-Ranges!

These mid-ranges are great options for you to consider when building that perfect MVP bag and will definitely get the job done when they're called upon.

MVP has truly made a name for themselves recently, and the discs on this list are proof of that!

So pick up some that have caught your eye, take them immediately to a disc golf course or field work session when they arrive, and as always,

Happy Disc Golfing!
