Axiom Total Eclipse Proxy

Axiom Proxy Comparison: Eclipse 2.0 vs. Total Eclipse Plastic

TL;DR: Axiom makes some unbelievable plastic. We compare the Eclipse 2.0 vs. Total Eclipse Plastic with two Axiom Proxys.

EST. Reading Time: 3 – 4 Minutes

Axiom Eclipse Plastic

Axiom Eclipse plastic is wonderful. It’s stiff but not too stiff and still has tons of grip. Plus it glows! The new Axiom Total Eclipse plastic glows in a number of colors, from green to pink! And as many MVP players will note, it’s literally the brightest glow plastic in the game. We’re testing out the Axiom Proxy in Eclipse 2.0 vs. Total Eclipse to see which one is our favorite.

Axiom Proxy Review

First, if you’ve never thrown an Axiom Proxy we’ll give you a brief rundown of why we love this disc so much. 

  • Point and Shoot
  • High Glide
  • Easy to Shape Lines
  • Flies Faaaaaaaar
  • Low Profile so it fits nicely in the hand

The Axiom Proxy flies more similar to a Big Z Luna for those familiar with the Discraft line (Read our Luna vs. Envy Review, here). It’s floaty and straight but will never turn and burn when you don’t want it too. Especially in Axiom Eclipse 2.0 or Total Eclipse plastic.

Axiom Eclipse 2.0 vs. Total Eclipse Plastic Comparison

The Axiom Eclipse 2.0 vs. Total Eclipse are both very similar. We found that the Eclipse 2.0 plastic feels a touch more stiff in the hand compared to Total Eclipse plastic. Obviously the main difference in discs with basic Eclipse 2.0 vs. Total Eclipse is the outer rim. The outer rim on Total Eclipse discs glows, so you get a bit brighter of a disc. We found that this gave the disc a more traditional feel, as both the rim and the core matched in texture – if that makes any sense. Here’s a quick breakdown of our thoughts:

Total Eclipse vs. Eclipse 2.0
Total Eclipse vs. Eclipse 2.0
  • Axiom Eclipse 2.0: Glow core, stiff rim. Ultra bright glow
  • Axiom Total Eclipse: Glow core and glow rim. Ultra Bright and glows pretty colors.
  • Both plastics are stiff and grippy

Axiom Proxy in Eclipse 2.0 Review

Here’s a quick rundown of how the Axiom Proxy in Eclipse 2.0 flies. Somewhat stable, kinda like an Envy. That being said, this version of the Axiom Proxy still flies true to how an Axiom Proxy should fly. It’s highly workable and handles straighter lines better than a similar plastic Envy. If we were to bag this Proxy (and we do) we’d use the Proxy in Eclipse 2.0 for windy days and for those shots where just a touch of stability is needed. 

Axiom Proxy in Total Eclipse Review

If you like straighter Discraft Lunas, the Axiom Proxy in Total Eclipse plastic is for you. Initially we weren’t thrilled with this disc, as it flies stable but not as stable as we were expecting. And it’s also not the straightest Proxy we’ve every thrown so it’s a bit of a tweener disc. Overtime, though, the Proxy in Total Eclipse plastic has become a staple in our bag. It’s able to handle any line we throw it on and carves fairways like you wouldn’t believe.
