I agree with the others that say to disc down and that there isn't a magical disc to get added distance. However, a champ or star Valkyrie could be a good option for discing down. If he likes the rim...

I'll second BigSky's recommendation of an Envy. They are very workable and glide really well for a putter/mid that has quite a bit of HSS. Proton will be a little more LSS than Neutron but Soft...

I concur with the soft proton. Especially the newer runs. They are a bit tackier than the early translucent proton. They puddle top quickly and when they do, they are at their best.

I'm most definitely in the technique camp on this subject. I routinely flick putters and mids, primarily MVP, so it's not a disc or strength issue. Deeper rimmed discs do take more time to develop...

Glad I am able help. A drop zone right at circle's edge actually makes you really want to save par and not just layup and take your 4. There is no OB behind the pin at Will but there is a drastic...

This is virtually a mirror to Will Rogers DGC's hole #4. This hole has a tree right at circle's edge that is a mando right to protect a tee box a little forward and to the left of the fairway. This...

Been using the Ion for putting duties for most of the four years I've played. I just don't have the desire to change my putting putter because I've honed my putt with them. I have a plethora of E SP...

That makes sense. Strong headwind with a putter and you might have a look for eagle.

This just needs to be highlighted again. I completely agree with this. My putter will always be an ion. I've been putting with them for three years. I won't even audition a new putter for putting...

About blowing by the basket, it's not like most of us that use this shot can't power the shot down, it's more about what line is available to you. If there is nothing constricting the line or...

Maybe for you, not necessarily for everyone. A flick is more of a natural motion for me. Putt jump, again, for me, has way too many moving parts.

I usually will only run straight at it if there is a backstop or I'm playing dubs. I typically will play the fade to give it a chance but not blow by too far.



Completely agree here. My...

:hfive: back atcha man!

It was a sad day when I left my 6-month old ion sitting in 18's basket. Well, maybe 30 minutes until I got home when I put it's sibling (quints) in the bag. I had 5 (now...

It's definitely normal if it is puddle-topped. IMO, that's when they are at their best. I've been using ions for my putter for a couple of years and I've got a stack of them that are nice and...
